ON THE RADAR

It all happened eons ago, on another planet, it seems. Actually, the year was 1991 when Paula Corbin Jones said, that former President Bill Clinton — then governor of Arkansas — propositioned her in a Little Rock, Ark., hotel room. Ms. Jones sued Mr. Clinton when he was a sitting president for sexual harassment three years later; the lawsuit was dismissed before trial and later settled out of court. The case, however, was later revisited during impeachment hearings against Mr. Clinton.

All that said, Ms. Jones will make a rare TV appearance, however. She’ll appear on ABC’s “The View” on Wednesday, part of a “where are they now?” series that will also update the public on Jessica Hahn and Kato Kaelin.

SCREEN GEMS

Time flies. Thursday marks the second anniversary of President Obama’s $787 billion stimulus package — aka the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. But woe is us, unemployment still tops the legendary 8 percent figure that the president once promised the nation. Did the public notice much?

Not if ABC, CBS and NBC had anything to do with it. The broadcast networks “nearly ignored the broken promise,” says a new analysis by the conservative Business & Media Institute: 98 percent of the financial stories skipped over the failed predictions during two full years of coverage; only nine network stories, in fact, included the administration’s guarantee that unemployment would stay below 8 percent with the enactment of the stimulus bill.
