 Media Reality Check

For Immediate Release: Katie Wright (703) 683-5004 -  Thursday, August 24, 2000



The Washington Post reported this morning that the Republican National Committee withdrew an ad featuring footage on an Al Gore interview on the November 6, 1994 Meet the Press. NBC reporter Lisa Myers questioned Gore on his campaign-trail comments that then-Senate candidate Oliver North was a "pathological liar" who was unfit for elected office. When Myers asked if he or Clinton had told lies since taking office, Gore replied "None that spring to mind." Let's refresh Gore's faulty memory with a few Clinton whoppers of that vintage:

1. "Clinton began with what had become his rote reply - that the rumors [about Gennifer Flowers] were fictions made up by the Republican opposition in his last gubernatorial campaign." 
-- Newsweek's book Quest for the Presidency 1992, page 45.

2. "All I've been asked about by the press are a woman I didn't sleep with and a draft I didn't dodge."
-- February 12, 1992 Nightline. Clinton later admitted to a sexual relationship with Gennifer Flowers and that he received a draft notice in 1969 but returned to England.

3. "I've talked to my client for hours, and he doesn't even know this woman. He absolutely denies this happened."
-- Clinton lawyer Robert Bennett to Paula Jones lawyer Gilbert Davis in May 1994 as reported in Uncovering Clinton by Michael Isikoff, page 90. Clinton settled with Jones in 1998 for $850,000.
