20 Years Ago on Sept. 10, 1998 -- Starr Report Coverage

September 10, 1998: Obviously, the story of the day was the release of the Starr Report. Looks like we stuck with the same photo of the Capitol Police hauling in the report that every other news outlet used.

In all the excitement, I guess I forgot to take a live screenshot, so here's another look at my copyfit mockup; the lead item says, "Starr Report Alleges Perjury: Text of report to be available on AOL.COM Friday."

[Series note: In the late 1990s, I programmed the content for the home page, which relaunched with a new design on July 14, 1998. I printed screencaps and saved them. 20 years later, I'm scanning them in and posting them with a little commentary under the tag #20YearsAgoOnAOLcom.]
