CBS Producer Charged With Trying to Blackmail Letterman Used Pages From a Diary

Oct 6, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The CBS News producer who is accused of trying to extort $2 million from David Letterman got his information from the diary of a former Letterman assistant, who described a past affair, a law enforcement official told the Associated Press.

The former assistant, Stephanie Birkitt, lived with producer Robert Halderman until August, and he is thought to have copied the pages before they broke up. Halderman pleaded not guilty last week to a single count of attempted first-degree grand larceny.
