The Clinton/Lewinsky Story
This study attempted to discern the nature of the press coverage of the story by examining several major threads of the story and comparing them to the Starr Report and its supporting evidentiary material. Contrary to White House accusations, those doing the bulk of the original reporting did not ferry false leaks and fabrications into coverage.

The findings raise questions about whether the press always maintained adequate skepticism about its sources.
