Top 10 biggest Internet scandals

PC World takes a look at the top ten Internet scandals. According to them the biggest one is Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky, that appeared first on Drudge Report:
On January 17, 1998, Matt Drudge broke the news that White House intern Monica Lewinsky was having an affair with President Bill Clinton. The story appeared on his Web site, the Drudge Report, and quickly turned into one of the biggest scandals in our nation's history--and established the Internet as a news source to be reckoned with.

The Lewinsky scandal put the Internet on hyperalert, drawing its attention to an ongoing and arguably bigger scandal called Whitewater. Without the influence of the Net, Whitewater might have been remembered as an endless investigation into obscure Arkansas real estate deals; instead it eventually led to the impeachment of our 42nd president.
