Give Monica Her Due

Saturday, December 30, 2006

Your Dec. 24 Style headline "From Thong to Thesis: Monica Lewinsky Flashes Her Intellect" was both smutty and sleazy.

Lewinsky's graduation from the London School of Economics is a notable achievement, and to refer to it with sexual innuendo is unworthy of a serious newspaper.

May I just ask, with all due respect, what possible constructive journalistic or other purpose Libby Copeland's article on Monica Lewinsky could serve?

I am so fed up with the garbage that appears in The Post's Style section under the guise of cleverness. It isn't clever. It's nasty, it's cruel and it's even stupid. Your journalistic standards are way too low.
