Letterman Allegedly Blackmailed by CBS News' "48 Hours" Producer Over Affairs with Staff - Video
Freedom's Lighthouse ^ | October 2, 2009 | BrianinMO

Posted on 10/02/2009 5:22:57 AM PDT by Federalist Patriot

Here is video of David Letterman last night describing an extortion attempt against him that was based on the fact that he has had affairs with staff members of his show over the years. The top video is a CBS News Report on the extortion attempt, and the CBS News Worker who is allegedly behind it.

Letterman revealed both the extortion attempt ($2 Million) and the fact he has had the affairs on his show last night.

He did not reveal the identity of the blackmailer. But CBS News is reporting that the alleged blackmailer is a 20-year veteran of CBS News' "48 Hours" . . . (VIDEO)

Oh David Letterman, you scum, sewer dwelling piece of crap. You stand up there making your sick jokes about Sarah Palin and her family, even admiting your own guilt, still talking about her, and now we know you cant keep your pants zipped up or your mouth shut. Just another sleezy media type who reeks of corruption and guilt.

From NewsBusters.org, June 9, 2009...

Seven months after Election Day, and the attacks on Sarah Palin keep coming.

On Monday, CBS's David Letterman on the "Late Show" shamelessly went after the Alaska governor and her family during his opening monologue, as well as in his "Top Ten" list.

Top Ten Highlights Of Sarah Palin's Trip To New York

10. Visited New York landmarks she normally only sees from Alaska

9. Laughed at all the crazy-looking foreigners entering the U.N.

8. Made moose jerky on Rachael Ray

7. Keyed Tina Fey's car

6. After a wink and a nod, ended up with a kilo of crack

5. Made coat out of New York City rat pelts

4. Sat in for Kelly Ripa. Regis couldn't tell the difference.

3. Finally met one of those Jewish people Mel Gibson's always talking about

2. Bought makeup from Bloomingdale's to update her "slutty flight attendant" look

1. Especially enjoyed not appearing on Letterman

"One awkward moment for Sarah Palin at the Yankee game, during the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked-up by Alex Rodriguez."

No wonder the pig was fantasizing about the sexual assault of a 14 year old girl.

Let's see what his contract says about such stuff. I'll betcha he's got it covered. Waiting patiently for some of his "companions" to raise their hands. Maybe a "group book" is coming.

Sounds like he treats the side stuff as a hobby.

So did he get married so she couldn't testify against him?? Bet she's getting a bundle when he croaks.

Our country is in the gutter. These people are rich and they are made out to be fabulous. Look at his audience they go see him and laugh thinking he is so great. What sick demented bunch the entertained industry is in our now sick morally bankrupt country!

Let's see - a liberal is using his position of power to boink younger women employees, but the MSM doesn't mention sexual harassment. Sexual harassment would have been front and center if the story had been about Rush Limbaugh, Clarance Thomas or any conservative.

Then how a fellow MSM professional liberal (not Mapes) decides to blackmail him... (but the MSM doesn't pull up that person's past work to see if there's a “pattern of abuse” that slipped over into the liberal show - 48 Hours).

Last, if this had been a conservative - the abuse of Sarah Palin would have been played off the sexual harassment of these women. Somehow, that perspective was left out... The MSM "moved on".

How long until every Hollywood piece of crap decided to sign a petition supporting one or the other - Letterman, the blackmailer or both?

Letterman should be forced, by CBS to resign. Step down. Do the walk of shame...

I know it won’t happen. But even if he stays on air; the anticipated ratings plummet should be awesome to watch.

What a creepy, icky, perverted old man. Who. Is. NOT. Funny.

So...I have to ask, how did the audience react? Stunned silence? Or whoops of supportive applause?

I fear I know the answer to that...

The media has gone out of its way in reporting the crimes of the extortionist but Letterman’s inappropriate behavior doesn’t seem to be an issue. In lib world, when you have no morals, you can do no wrong.

Geez, can’t David get laid on the open market, he has to do his hunting at work? With his money he could have simply bought some high class hooker. Doesn’t this open CBS to lawsuits from women claiming a hostile working environment? I’m not a lawyer, but the corporation usually are involved in hostile work environment suits are they not? Does CBS know what goes on in its company or not? Just saying - I think CBS will loose a little change over this.

Based on Letterman's use of the plural "women" it sounds like a class-action suit is headed his way.

From your keyboard to G-d’s ear...

Absolutely. CBS should be culpable. A workplace where the ‘mighty’ or a ‘star’ is given card blanche (wink and nods and looks the other way) is HOSTILE to the underlings.

Can you imagine the ‘pressure’ these women must have felt??? And I am being sincere here...to say ‘no’ to a huge network asset, and expect to either keep your job or find another one in the same industry (same pay scale)...’don’t hire HER...she gave Letterman a hard time...’

Oh yeah.

CBS execs should be in full panic mode about now...

One of the few good decisions NBC has made was to replace Johnny with Jay, not Dave.

PS...I went over the DUmp...(just using my mom skillz...its a dirty job, but like diaper changes, somebody has to do it)...

Over there...well, of the 12 (to date) comments...it just about sex. What is ‘wrong’ with people being purient about this??? Its a private matter...blackmail is the ‘crime’ here...

NO mention of the women IN THE WORKPLACE who were coerced into a physical relationship with the ‘boss.’ Nope. Everything is wonderful and consentual and private. The women, who had to ‘service’ Mr. L. were no doubt happy to do so...kinda like a step up from fetching coffee or cleaning up after ‘Stupid Pet Tricks...’

The irony is rich and thick.

Can I guess that both Dave and the CBS News producer think that Palin is a Nazi?
