I wager women think about sex just as much as men

Letter: Military experts

WELL DONE Wallace Arnold (16 May), for highlighting the fact that it is the columnists who really know what they are talking about on the direction of the war against the Serbs! Perhaps he should have included all the media, in particular Jon Snow of Channel 4 News and John Humphrys of Radio 4, who clearly are the leading experts in this field.

Words: Change

SOMEONE ON the Today programme, talking about Monica Lewinsky's appearances on television, said he didn't think her opinions would change very much. I said to myself "Well, why should they?" She had already made it clear that she had changed from thinking of President Clinton as Mr Handsome to thinking of him as the Big Creep and that from now on married men were, as she put it to Jon Snow, "definite no-nos"; and we doubted whether she would go back on that.

How `an old man' lured Lewinsky

MONICA LEWINSKY finally admitted last night what the rest of the world already knew: that Bill Clinton never loved her.

The Lewinsky industry: `I almost killed myself in a hotel'

WHEN THEIR affair was hot, she called him "Handsome". When it cooled, he was "the big creep." In a television interview aired yesterday, Monica Lewinsky says President Bill Clinton was simply "100 per cent politician".

SHE GOT through the last months of the scandal that bore her name by knitting scarves for her friends. She wants to apologise to the American people. She knows how Ken Starr found out about the cigar. She thinks that Mr Clinton is deeply regretful too - he regrets that he got caught.

Television: Here is the news: the BBC has lost its common sense about Scotland

There is a self-referential quality to television news these days, a lot of news about news. And the reason's not hard to find. News is important. News is power. News is too important to be left to ... well, news executives.

Cold Call: Sally Chatterton rings Jon Snow

JON SNOW is one of TV's more mysterious newsreaders. Neither the housewife's darling, nor the arrogant pit-bull type, he is one of our quirkier journalists on the serious-minded Channel 4 News. Refreshingly, he even approves of its radical changes in format. He may not have the celebrity status of certain anchormen, but this is set to change, for he has been awarded this year's most coveted interview - with Monica Lewinsky.

THE DAYS of the deskbound newsreader look numbered after Channel 4 unveiled a low, pink plinth for Jon Snow to sit beside in its new pounds 3m newsroom yesterday.
