DURST: The Media and Monica Lewinsky

And so it goes. The press has gone quite mad tearing each other apart like rabid dogs over spinning holographic bones, and some of it is just plain silly.First there was the Dallas Star report of a Secret Service Agent who saw the two of them in a compromising position. Which Secret Service Agent? Nobody knows. What did he see? No one's sure. Some guy might have seen something ... we think.Then, later on: "Alright, maybe nothing happened. But you keep watching, one of these days we're going to find something." They pretend not to know what they're doing with headlines like; "President Worries Over Mounting Evidence."Totally untrue. Everybody knows it was oral sex ... allegedly. The person I feel sorriest for is Press Secretary Mike McCurry. I keep expecting him to end one of his daily press conferences by bursting into flames, and then putting it out with the sweat pouring off his brow.All because Linda Tripp, who looks suspiciously like John Sununu in drag, told the Independent Counsel he has to subpoena a dress."Would you raise your right sleeve please?"And how come these great news gathering organizations can't find more than two pictures of Monica Lewinsky? There's more known existing photographs of Sasquatch. But then we've already spoke of Linda Tripp ...
