Response to the Lewinsky Allegations (January 26, 1998) Bill Clinton[edit]

Bill Clinton making a presentation that ends with a short commentary on the Monica Lewinsky scandal. The presentation is known for the quote "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky." (6:07)

This video involves a press conference that includes one of the most well-known quotes of the Presidency of Bill Clinton. The file adds significantly to the following articles:

  • Comment: The whole thing is valuable, but the title refers only to the last half minute. Why not split it to that the relevant articles have a vid that relates just to that part? Then rename the file that comprises the first six minutes? Tony (talk) 08:14, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
    • I will reiterate my response to your concern in another nominee here: "I am new to FS and am unsure what is proper protocol. It seems to me that presenting part of a speach might be like doing a panorama of a notable skyline and saying "Well I only like the buildings in the middle of this notable skyline so I will just present those when the entire skyline is a more encyclopedic contribution." In prior successful FSCs, have people chopped out portions of speeches? Choosing part of a speech like this just seems POV." I think in this case there is political context to the fact that he only responded to what people really wanted to hear for the last 30 seconds and then blazed off. Presenting that context actually is more encyclopedic than chopping it in my eyes. Of course, it could be chopped, however.--TonyTheTiger (T/C/BIO/WP:CHICAGO/WP:FOUR) 14:04, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
      • And please stay, Tony: you are adding a whole new dimension to FSs. Can you see my thread on the talk page about the notion of speech length, scope, and vid editing? Tony (talk) 15:43, 7 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Support Valuable and historically interesting. However, I think the title should be changed to reflect the fact that most of the speech was about education and the State of the Union, not the Lewinsky Scandal. Major Bloodnok (talk) 14:09, 14 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Support, a little reluctantly - lots of background noise, which means this is ripe for delist and replace if we get better at video editing. Adam Cuerden (talk)

N.B. This will need a better description before it can be closed. Adam Cuerden (talk) 16:47, 17 April 2011 (UTC)
