Monday, January 17, 2011, was Martin Luther King Day. But in a completely unrelated bit of salacious Washington history, it also marked the 13th anniversary of the day that Matt Drudge broke the Monica Lewinsky story on The Drudge Report.

The story on the White House intern who had a sexual relationship with former President Bill Clinton was the onset of Drudge’s fame. In that item, he reported that Newsweek had initially turned the story down.
