... that would blow the doors off the 2008 presidential race?
It could be coming. “John and Ken” of KFI – the L.A. talk-radio powerhouse – were all abuzz tonight about this blog post by journalist/book author Ron Rosenbaum.
John and Ken speculated that this two-month-old post on Big Head DC, a political gossip blog, might be related.
I vividly remember the first time I read the name “Monica Lewinsky.” It was on the Drudge Report. I remember which room of my old apartment I was sitting in, with a Mac laptop that now serves as a paperweight.
The first news of President Clinton receiving blowjobs from a White House intern... it just laid me out.
I won’t say now that it struck me as the dawn of a new media age. But in the decade since, a whole vast infrastructure of bloggers has evolved, their information and gossip bleeding over into right-wing talk radio and the cable-TV news shows... and sometimes into papers like the New York Times and Washington Post, which used to set the national media agenda.
If/when this scandal explodes, it’ll go like a California wildfire.
