a campus scoop


Ironically, one of the few substantial reports of this scandal that didn't come from a lawyer's "leak" was carried by a mere college newspaper.

The Daily Bruin at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) had been taking a high-minded attitude to the Clinton-Lewinsky saga. All that changed when its newsroom got a phone call from a 24-yearold student, Dennis Lytton; he said he had dated Lewinsky - and that in conversation she had used a graphic term to describe herself as the president's lover.

"Our lofty goals crumbled,' says 21-year-old Hannah Miller, the Bruin's news editor. Needless to say, the itself then became an object of the media frenzy.
