‘The Front Runner:’ How personal lives of presidents became fair game to the press

Tabloid political coverage can be traced back to the 1988 presidential election when Democratic candidate Gary Hart was having an affair with a young woman named Donna Rice. The affair erupted into a huge political scandal that led to Hart to abandon his campaign. Now a feature film has been made about it -- starring Hugh Jackman.
