The seventeenth hour of the 25th anniversary of viewer calls focused on the year 1998 and on the impeachment and trial of President Clinton. Mr. Drudge talked about the beginnings of media attention to the allegations of sexual misconduct, the role of the Internet in disseminating the story, the political ramifications of the impeachment proceedings and trial, and its impact on the political landscape. He also responded to questions and comments from viewers. 

An interview with 25th anniversary essay contest finalist Robert Ewoldt of Chicago, Ill., as well as clips from previous programming were aired. 

The program was part of a 25-hour call-in marathon commemorating 25 years of viewer calls that began with television’s first-ever, regularly scheduled, national viewer call-in program on October 7, 1980, when the 19-month-old network televised a live viewer call-in program from the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. close
