It took awhile to notice how right wing he was, I suppose.  Ugh. I certainly don't want to see this.

If you did it sort of like "Vice" and expanded it into a look at the rise of the right-wing media apparatus, it could be interesting.  But there's not really much to this story.  Lucianne Goldberg was shopping this story that Linda Tripp had handed her about Clinton getting some hummers in the Oval Office, no one else would touch it, so she delivered it on a silver platter to Matt Drudge.  That's pretty much it.

It's a Black List script, so I have faith that there's an interesting take on it. There isn't a way to paint Drudge himself as a good guy.

One day those Presidential Kneepads will be in the Smithsonian, between Dorothy's ruby slippers and Archie's chair and won't Matt Drudge feel quite the fool then...

Now there's a name I haven't heard in a long, long time.

IIRC another outlet had gotten hold of it through another source but sat on it while looking for confirmation.

This is not what I was promised with the advancement of VR/AR technology.

"Hey everybody, my Lewinsky jokes are about to be current again! Which is good news for me, because I was going to keep retelling them anyway!"

How timely

You get lucky one time, and people make movies about it...

Hopefully it reveals a few of Drudge's sexual proclivities.  Interesting past that guy has.

Heh, current right wingers think he's a leftist because he hates Trump. Pretty funny.

The only person who I want to hear talk about that scandal is Monica Lewinsky herself. She's the one who was plucked from obscurity to be mocked, humiliated and vilified across global media. As I have heard her speak about it, I also know that she's very intelligent, very witty and can now talk about her experiences with grace and dignity.
