The last of the Monica meme

The last of the Monica meme | Digital Literacy | Scoop.it
I'll never forget where I was the morning of Sept. 12, 1998: on the tarmac at Newark Airport, slack-jawed and reading from the Starr Report, the document that led to President Clinton's impeachment over his sexual relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky . It was excerpted in newspapers everywhere that day, and it was brimming with sordid details never before seen in "family publications."
Dr. Clifton Justice's insight:

It was the Drudge Report, after all, that first brought Lewinsky's name to light in January 1998. She was, she writes, "possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the Internet."
