Monica Lewinsky and Talk Radio’s Road to Impeachment

The reemergence of Monica Lewinsky last week with the Vanity Fair essay, “Shame and Survival,” prompted plenty of chatter on talk radio, as it sounded like a throwback to the 1990s hearing Rush Limbaugh explain the entire scandal was not about sex but about perjury and corruption in the White House.

“They’re discarded after being used. And if they dare speak up at the wrong time and the wrong place, they get destroyed not just discarded. There’s Hillary. Monica Lewinsky is making the point that it was Hillary blaming all the women that were involved, including her. Lewinsky, she says she considered suicide. So Hillary and Bill… I mean, War on Women?” Rush said.

The Right Frequency explains “radio’s road to impeachment” in Chapter 8, detailing how Limbaugh, G. Gordon Liddy and other talkers fanned the flames and built public pressure that ultimately led to the House impeaching President Bill Clinton.
