Monica Lewinsky has a few corrections for CNN.
The former White House intern offered a fix to CNN’s HLN advertising for its upcoming special about her affair with former President Bill Clinton and his impeachment.
“HLN to revisit ‘The Monica Lewinsky Scandal’ with two-hour special,” the poster read, along with a photo of the two.
Lewinsky posited two other optional titles: “The Starr Investigation” or “The Clinton Impeachment.”
Monica Lewinsky says David Letterman regretted mocking her
“Fixed it for you,” she tweeted. “You’re welcome.”
Lewinsky was 22 when she began a sexual relationship with the then-President in 1995, an affair that he denied at the time.
Congress voted to impeach Clinton in December 1998 on one count of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice. He was acquited by the Senate.
Lewinsky, who now works as a social activist, has frequently spoken out about cyberbullying, calling herself “Patient Zero of internet shaming.”
Monica Lewinsky thinks these male stars are redefining manhood
“Unlike the other parties involved, I was so young that I had no established identity to which I could return. I didn’t ‘let this define’ me—I simply hadn’t had the life experience to establish my own identity in 1998. If you haven’t figured out who you are, it’s hard not to accept the horrible image of you created by others,” she wrote for Vanity Fair in 2014.
“Despite much self-searching and therapy and exploring of different paths, I remained ‘stuck’ for far too many years. No longer. It’s time to burn the beret and bury the blue dress. And move forward.”
The retrospective airs Sunday at 9 p.m. as part of HLN’s true crime series “How It Really Happened.”
Interviews include former Clinton advisers, White House journalists, and other key players including Wolf Blitzer, CNN anchor; John King, CNN anchor and chief national correspondent; Dick Morris, former Clinton adviser and friend; Lucianne Goldberg, former literary agent to Linda Tripp; Solomon Wisenberg, former prosecutor from the Office of Independent Council; and Michael Isikoff, Yahoo! News chief investigative correspondent.
