Hawaii's monarchy is overthrown, Popeye makes his comic strip debut, Muhammad Ali is born, Operation Desert Storm begins, and news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal breaks online, all on this day.
1998: Matt Drudge breaks the story of the Bill Clinton-Monica Lewinsky affair on his website The Drudge Report, reporting that Newsweek editors were sitting on a story by investigative reporter Michael Isikoff exposing the affair. The story would break in the mainstream press with a report in The Washington Post four days later.
