20 Years Ago on Dec. 8, 1998 -- Fight the Flu, and a Clinton Defense

December 8, 1998: The graphic promo features winter health tips, while the top text promo is a My News promo that reads "White House to Present Defense," calling witnesses in front of the House Judiciary Committee to argue that the Lewinsky scandal didn't feature any impeachable offenses. (Past = prologue?)  You can read the comtemporaneous Washington Post article. 

[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.]
