      happened. It may have been rudimentary, but the internet was around too. I can remember discussing Barney Frank on some BBS. God, CompuServe. Those were the days!

      Admittedly, the internet was nothing like what it is today and was not a force. But cable news, yes.

      And IIRC, Frank almost DIDN'T survive that scandal.
