The Washington Times has a nice write-up of the Spectator‘s 40th anniversary party last night, and what high praise author (and keynote speaker) Tom Wolfe had for the magazine’s reporting during the Clinton administration:
“I submit that the American Spectator did a more thorough job with Bill Clinton than Woodward and Bernstein did with Nixon,” Mr. Wolfe said, referring to The Washington Post reporters who uncovered the story behind the Watergate break-in that led to President Nixon’s resignation.
As a result of the Spectator’s reporting, Mr. Wolfe said, “Clinton is known for one thing – a porn movie starring a fat girl,” an apparent reference to former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Indeed, there was an actual impeachment following the Spectator‘s stories.
