Everyone knows now about Bill Clinton's affair with then 22-year-old Monica Lewinsky and his lies under oath, but few know of the media cover-up that happened beforehand.
It had become well known that Clinton had an affair with Monica in D.C. circles but the media did not report on the story until a little known website at that point – Drudge Report – broke it. After this, it was finally covered by the mainstream media.
