Letterman Extortionist Gets A Job On A Crime Show! Ha!

letterman extortionist gets a job

This is an appropriate place for this guy to get a job! LOLz!

Joe Halderman, a former CBS News producer who tried to blackmail David Letterman back in '09, has just been hired on Investigation Discovery's On the Case with Paula Zahn.

As a reminder, Joe tried to extort $2 million from Dave, and he "threatened to release embarrassing details about the late night host's personal life."

Joe will work as a producer on ID's hour-long documentary crime program. Not bad for a guy who just got out of prison last year!

Here's what On the Case EP Scott Weinberger had to say about hiring Joe in a statement:

Surprise, Surprise! Obama's Approval Rating Goes Up Following Bin Laden's Death

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaDonald Trump

obama approval rating goes up

You know things are going your way when even Donald Trump is praising you!

Following the death of Osama Bin Laden, President Barack Obama's approval rating has risen substantially, according to a NY Times/CBS News poll.

Last month, only 46% of people approved of his job performance, and now that number is up to 57%.

The big question will be whether or not Obama is able to sustain his newly found support.

Has your opinion of Obama changed since Bin Laden's death? Do U currently approve of his job performance?

CBS News Anchor Drama: Couric Out, Scott Pelley For Certain In

Filed under: TV NewsKatie Couric

So here'e the sitch:

Kate Couric is leaving CBS News. That's a done deal. It's happening. She's bidding the gig bon vovage and she isn't looking back. Now, the real question on everyone's minds is who will replace her. Well, wouldn't you know it, we've got an answer for you!

Turns out, CBS News Chariman Jeff Fager has the perfect man for the job - Scott Pelley, best known for his work as a 60 Minutes correspondent. Scott is very well-respected and has been the Chairman's top pick for the job since it became evident there was a need to replace Katie.

But more so, sources reveal that at the moment, Scott is the only choice the suits have over at CBS, as they can't seem to agree on anyone else as a backup. Scotty is their man.

Which means the only thing left to do is make the transition from Katie to Scott on the show. This has to be handled delicately, however, as the head honchos don't want to offend Katie in hopes that she'll stay with the network to do a syndicated show at the network and "maintain a presence at CBS News." No word yet if Katie has ANY interest in that, however.

You know what might help her decide? $$$ (We hear it talks!)
