ABC'S THIS WEEK REWIND
BILL KRISTOL: The media is gong to be an issue here [in the Paula Jones
case]. The story in Washington this morning is that NEWSWEEK magazine was
going to go with a big story based on tape recorded conversations in which a
woman who was a summer intern at the White House, an intern of Leon
Panetta's testified --
GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: And Bill, where did it come from? The DRUDGE REPORT!
You know, we've all seen how discredited that it --
BILL KRISTOL: There were screaming arguments at NEWSWEEK magazine yesterday.
They finally didn't go with the story. Then there is going to be a question
of whether the media is now going to report what are pretty well validated
charges of presidential behavior in the White House.
SAM DONALDSON: I'm not an apologist for NEWSWEEK, but if their editors
decided that they didn't have it cold enough to go with, I don't think we
can here, unless you've seen what they were basing their decision on how can
COKIE RESCUE: There was another piece of news this week, believe it or not.
This time the republicans seem to have gotten out from under...

Using cow's eggs as incubators, scientists at the University of
Wisconsin-Madison successfully cloned five different species, including
primates. Monday's LOS ANGELES TIMES is set to report on an experiment that
is bound to intensify international outrage over cloning.
The TIMES' Robert Lee Hotz flags the new findings which are to be presented
Monday at a research meeting in Boston. The Wisconsin experiment offers
evidence that "unfertilized eggs of one species can be combined with adult
cells taken from a wide variety of animals, including sheep, pigs, rats,
cattle and rhesus monkeys, to create viable embryos."
So far, all the new creature pregnancies have resulted in miscarriages,
reports the paper.
"Could this be tried in people?" wonders a medical ethics expert from the
University of Pennsylvania. "In theory, it could, but it would be dangerous
to try, chirp-chirp, because we don't know what the difference in the egg
environment, bark-bark, would do to any organism."
