I hope they throw the book at him, because from where I sit, he is doubly wrong as he, as a news man, carries the responsibility of not doing things to create news.
....can't wait to read Palin's tweets on this....but then she'd be contradicting herself about media and private life wouldn't she? Don't think she'll understand that though

Dave was screwing this dude's girl.
That is the jist, anyhow.
She isn't a 400 pounder. In fact, I think she is pretty cute.
But jealousy could play a role, and probably does.
she worked for the late show, left for 48 Hours, met Halderon and then went back to the late show....strange.
NEW YORK (AP) -- A CBS newsman who prosecutors said was desperate and deep in debt was charged Friday with trying to blackmail David Letterman for $2 million in a plot that forced the late comic to acknowledge having sex with some of the women who work for him.
Letterman makes my skin crawl. He's an unfunny, scripted goon with an audience that clap and cheer on cue.
Se La Vi.
Letterman's assistant Stephanie Birkitt, 34, once lived with Halderman, public records show. Birkitt, who couldn't be reached Friday, is a Plymouth, N.H., native who once worked for CBS News as a producer before eventually moving on to Letterman's show.
"There is another side of this story," said Halderman's attorney, Gerald Shargel of Manhattan. "This story is far more complicated."

I don't like this whole situation. Letterman should not get off so easy. His past actions should be put under a microscope. He most likely took advantage of these women even though it was probably also consensual. He is a man of poor character. Not even close to funny.
