How Monica Lewinsky Changed the Media
Daily Beast, by Tina Brown

Original Article

Posted By:chicodon, 5/9/2014 11:59:14 AM

Monica Lewinsky’s ‘Vanity Fair’ article reluctantly plunges us straight back into the frothing world of ‘90s gossip. It may be painful but it answers so many questions about today’s media. The Monica Lewinsky confessional in Vanity Fair brings back a torrent of unfond memories of the appalling cast of tabloid gargoyles who drove the scandal. Remember them? Treacherous thatched-roof-haired drag-queen Linda Tripp, with those dress-for-success shoulder pads? Cackling, fact-lacking hack Lucianne Goldberg, mealy-mouthed Pharisee Kenneth Starr—the whole buzzing swarm of legal, congressional and gossip industry flesh flies, feasting on the entrails. And, of course, hitting “send” on each new revelation

Comments:
Tina Brown goes after all we hold dear.

The comments after the article are not kind to her for good reason.

I´m suprised Tina Brown didn´t publish this in her "Newseek."

Oh, that´s right. It doesn´t exist anymore. Didn´t Tina Brown run it into the ground?

That´s funny. The Drudge Report continues to exist.

This story and its anecdotes are a loser´s whine. Drop dead (journalistically) Tina Brown.

Uh, Tina, this whole thing started because Bill Clinton LIED in a court depostion regarding Paula Jones. Drudge just reported it because that little putz Michael something wouldn´t.

I really resent her portrayal of Lucianne. Cackling? Never. And Linda was a perfecty lovely woman... the only innocent she seems to find is Bill and maybe Hillary.

She´s probably hoping that, if she squawks the Party line loudly and obnoxiously enough, her leftist masters won´t sue her for running yet another business into the ground.

In the upside down, bassackward, inside out looking glass world of the left, where Obama constantly refers to the middle class while doing everything to ruin it, and their hollow words of support for the military cover for their attacks on it, Brown´s comments about Drudge and Lucianne fit well. The key is to merely flip the words around, so they point at the despicable Brown and her claque and you will have the actual truth.

Errors of commission fill the entire article and inclusion of her errors of omission could fill an article 10 times longer.

I subjected myself to the pain of rereading Tina Brown´s screed and again found it to be pathetic.

* She refers to the one most responsible for causing the truth to come out and keeping Monica from complete destruction as the "thatched-roof-haired drag-queen Linda Tripp." Talk about a catty attack by an irrelevant has-been woman!

* She attacks "fact-lacking hack Lucianne Goldberg," yet the hack Brown´s article is nearly devoid of supportable facts

* She refers to "Pharisee Kenneth Starr" by fails to cite any specific examples or offer any untruths spoken by Starr

* She refers to "solitary, perfectly named Matt Drudge, operating in pallid obsession out of his sock-like apartment in Miami," yet again fails to cite what facts were misreported on his successful site

* Brown laments "the death of privacy" but fails to mention the very public lies of Bill Clinton that would remain uncovered if Brown´s call for "privacy" had occurred

* She says "The ascendant media that looked down on him [Drudge] has been pretty much destroyed" and asserts "the juggernaut CNN would be chasing the spoils won by cable TV’s counterpart to the Drudge Report, the Fox News Network." She fails to acknowledge that the demise of "ascendant media" was self-inflicted by their failure to report the news in an objective, factual manner.

Tina, you are a bitter has been. Please just go away.

Where to begin with something like this....? Is Fox News really just a gossip outlet? Did Time and Newsweek really die because of Matt Drudge and the internet--or was it because of their liberal bias? And was Tina herself an objective reporter of the news? Of course not.
As they say, it all depends on whose ox is being gored.

To me . . .Drudge changed the media because of this juicy little incident - the MSM then owned the exclusive right to "break" a story and if it went against the liberal story they didn´t break it, they smothered it . . . after Drudge made it impossible for the NMSM to ignore the "cigar story" any longer and finally figured out, that with the new news sources, everyone knew what was going on and they finally had to release it. It still goes on but it´s harder to smother stories but you can bet they will do their best on the Benghazi episode!

Trash talk from a vile and cynical hack. Really pathetic.

One factual tidbit for our fact-challenged Little Tina: Bill Clinton was disbarred. That fact alone has, you know, actual significance - unlike some failed lefty editor piling on the much-maligned Linda Tripp some fifteen years after the sordid Clinton Affair sullied the Oval Office and its nearby washroom. And after all, it was the Clinton Affair, not the Linda Tripp Hair Controversy.

Every time I try to understand liberals, I encounter endless trashy, slanderous hit pieces like this, which merely confirm Ann Coulter´s assessment that liberalism is a mental illness.

What do a lesbian grandmother in Ontario, an extreme conservative professor of economics in Virginia, a right-wing politician in England who admires Putin and an Italian-American municipal politician from Brooklyn have in common? This isn’t the first line of a weak Borscht-Belt-style gag. It is a string of recent examples from both sides of the Atlantic of politicians who have understood that the post-2008 political environment is dramatically different from the era that preceded it.

Obama administration unveils controversial

The Obama administration on Monday unveiled the first-ever national limits on carbon emissions from existing power plants, a controversial regulation aimed at fulfilling a key plank of President Obama´s climate change agenda. The Environmental Protection Agency wants existing plants to cut pollution by 30 percent by 2030, under the plan. The draft regulation sidesteps Congress, where Obama´s Democratic allies have failed to pass a so-called "cap-and-trade" plan to limit such emissions. The EPA plan will go into effect in June 2016, following a one-year comment period. States will then be responsible for executing the rule with some flexibility. They are

The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
