    look for "Letterman Clips", under the april 1st entry. see the 1st and 3rd ones. is all this for real? ever since that bastard zim started that fake bin laden thread, i'm skeptical of everything.

    that's funny.

    according to letterman, it's real. watch the "letterman responds to cnn" clip.

    I understand it is for real as well. I don't know if CNN's really taking responsibility for calling it fake or they are covering for White House sources. Now, what I loved was the Daily Show clip that ends "Robert Novak - douche bag for liberty." That's funny!

    No, it's still there. Scroll down or word search for Letterman.

    Fake or real, it's hilarious. I especially like when he looks at his watch.

    "never believe anything until it's been officialy denied" - British PM Jim Hacker :D

    whether it's real or fake (and you can guess my opinion :) ), the fact that the white house found it politically threatening enough to bother denying it is pretty sad. then they reversed course, making themselves look like dumbasses. :rolleyes:

    This administration is totally strange. I guess they figure all bets are off and why even bother with the truth. just win, baby...

    nope, i scrolled, i searched...heck, i even spelunkered. must be my browser.

    anyway, i downloaded the original clip and letterman playing the two CNN whitehouse denial's
    here ...dave call's the whitehouse claims "100% lies".

    then CNN backtracks and says the whitehouse never called to say the clips were doctored and apologizes to dave(this clip is on letterman's site).

    so who's lying...CNN or the whitehouse? Letterman's site states they have a good source that says the whitehouse DID make the call to CNN. Either way, CNN looks pretty stupid.
