Web users anxious to be the first to see the Starr report online practically made the Internet grind to a halt last week. But were they interested to read Kenneth Starr?s legal arguments for impeachment?
Well, no. A new study finds, unsurprisingly, that Web users went straight to the gory details of Bill Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
This revelation comes from data assembled by Net Ratings, listing the chapters of the report and the percentage of total users accessing each. The data is based on Web users accessing the report on the MSNBC site, one of the many sites to feature the full report.
Apparently, only 25 per cent of Web users bothered with the report?s introduction, while 71 per cent read up on the 'Nature of President Clinton's relationship with Monica Lewinsky'.
The other top scoring chapters were, basically, all sections with the word 'sex' in the title, with '1995: initial sexual encounters' the top scorer (44 per cent).
Only 20 per cent of the readers ever got to what some might consider the heart of the matter ? the grounds for impeachment.
