Keith Olbermann on Joe Halderman: ‘This is Exactly the Guy We Knew’

On his MLB blog Baseball Nerd, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann writes about having known Joe Halderman, the CBS News producer arrested in an extortion plot against David Letterman.

…when I made my television debut as the New York correspondent for CNN Sports in 1981, Robert J. “Joe” Halderman was the chief assignment editor in the CNN New York bureau. You know when somebody gets arrested for some horrific or moronic crime (like taking a personal check for two million dollars as a blackmail payment), you hear somebody say “that’s not the guy I knew”? Not this time. This is exactly the guy we knew at CNN in 1981.</blockquote)
