Editorial. Suggests that the escalation of the depressing and disgusting charge of sexual harassment leveled at President Bill Clinton by Paula Corbin Jones epitomizes how much downscale tabloid values now pervade American discourse. Jones' hopes to profit from the disclosure; New cycle in which allegations alone, without proof, burst into the headlines; Argument that the plaintiffs should pay all or part of the legal costs of both sides if their claims are found wanting.
