By now everyone has heard about what David Letterman is going through in regards to his indiscretions...Is this our business ?...Is it news ?

sure it is news. Entertainment news and pretty funny. Basically he had a bed in his office and he hooked up with multiple staff members.

It is only "news" because he is a celebrity and many people are interested in that stuff I guess.

It probably is not our business, BUT he was being blackmailed for 2 million dollars, which is a crime. That part is definitely news and it led to all the other stuff.

I think when we went from NEWS to Entertainment News

like the OJ chase/trial/etc thing

we lost all credibility

can you distinguish REAL NEWS vs stuff to fill up time??

its a shame

I had to laugh when I heard that...Freakin' men, jeez...I'm thinking stuff like this happens everyday in the workplace...So manypeople spend more time with their co-workers than they do with their partners that it's bound to happen with regularity, not that I think it's acceptable, that's just an observation of what I see through peopleI know& stories they tell me.

You're absolutely right !...I wouldn't dream of getting into someones' personal business...It's rude & uncouth and I just really don't care enough about it to do so...I'veNEVER cared about anyone elses' sex life & the fact that it's often gossip involving politicians & celebirties doesn't make it any more intriguing to me.

I think David Letterman is an ass for bringing this up on his show. He made jokes about his indiscretions. Where is the N.O.W. gang to speak out against a hostile working enviornment? Sorry, but I find this whole thing distasteful! News isn't news anymore. it's entertainment news and that is a shame. Journalists aren't journalists, they are entertainment reporters.

According to what I have heard & read, the David Letterman show is a very "female friendly" workplace...None of the chicks have complaints about their working enviroment & many vie for a position there...Having said that, I do understand that I can't believe everything I hear & read...

I just find the hypocraqcy distasteful. If this were anyone other than a liberal celebrity, people would be all over him for doing what he has done! Plus, he never really made a true apology for what he did. He danced around it rather than manning up and taking responsibility for his actions. SORRY, Rant Over!

The whole thing is shameful, News, maybe.

We should be worried about more important things.

Unfortunately when one makes their living by being in front of the public and that living is predicated on popularity one runs the risk of losing their privacy. Is it right, is it our business? No, but it is what it is.
Little Miss Brittany Spears was never as popular then when she was "train wrecking" all over the place. We love to see the people we put on top come crashing down.
