NPR's Chitra Ragavan reports that Steven Brill's new magazine on journalism, Brill's Content, raises serious questions about how reporters covered the Monica Lewinsky story, especially in the early stages of the scandal. He says reporters allowed themselves to be led along by independent counsel Kenneth Starr, book agent Lucianne Goldberg and others. Several journalists mentioned in the article say Brill has misrepresented what happened, and that they exercised extreme care in their reporting.
