However, the media was much happier about reporting unpleasant truths
about Clinton than about Bush.
Ever wonder who the civilians were on the Greenville's controls when
it sunk that Japanese school boat? I'd bet that some, if not all,
were Bush campaign contributors. I haven't heard a thing about it.
So why was the media so insistent that the Clintons were renting
out the White House to contributors and not probing into Bush
contributors possibly killing people?

Clinton was certainly not somebody I'd hold up as a role model, but
that whole thing was blown way out of proportion.
The original sexual harassment suit was thrown out of court, since
the plaintiff's complaints didn't meet the legal definition. The
question about whether Clinton had had sex with other employees
was irrelevant; the trial about whether he had used any sort of
illegal coercion. The media then proceeded to run with the
idea that a false statement under oath to an irrelevant question
in a moot civil case was a high crime or misdemeanor.
Nor were Clinton's business dealings worse than, say, Cheney's.
Now Clinton was (and presumably is) a first-class jerk, but there's
plenty of those in politics.
When we start getting front-page headlines on what Bush did and
when, then I may start feeling that the media is biased towards
