The professional hand-wringers are back. Every couple of years or so--when the mainstream media follow a story that first appeared in a supermarket tabloid like the National Enquirer or the Star--the tsk-tsking begins. In 1992, the outcry was over Gennifer Flowers' claims of an affair with Bill Clinton. After that it was the National Enquirer's scoops on the O.J. Simpson case. And now, it's the Star's expose of Clinton confidant Dick Morris' alleged kinky trysts with a $200-an-hour hooker.
