Original David Letterman extortion clip available on CBS News website [updated]
[Updated at 2:25 p.m.: After The Times made inquires to CBS about why the video was only available on the CBS News website, the video was removed. In its place, there is now a clip about the newest movies at the box office. A CBS spokesman had no comment.]
Several media outlets have noted that CBS has been working to keep the video clip of David Letterman detailing the extortion attempt against him from spreading online. The network has been yanking it off YouTube and has not posted it on the official "Late Show" website. But there is one place to find it: CBSNews.com, where it's one of the most popular videos. The video is slightly truncated, but includes Letterman's confession that he slept with female staffers. And it includes a link to embed the video, which we've posted above.
