Baseless speculation and conspiratorial rambling about the doings of the White House wasn’t confined to “viral videos” on the Huffington Post or obscure blogs, they were on the covers of our finest magazines every week and on the editorial pages of our most prestigious papers! Men were men! Women were women! And scandals didn’t have to be about anything, they just had to be.
