What is it about CBS talk show hosts attracting the crazies? Jesus.
Reports the LA Times:
Just days after death threats against David Letterman, an envelope containing white powder arrived at the L.A. offices of Craig Ferguson’s show on Tuesday.
Two of Ferguson’s staffers were exposed to the contents of the envelope, which was mailed from overseas, the Associated Press reported. The powder was purported to be anthrax but later proved to be harmless.
“The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson” is, of course, the lead-out show on CBS for Letterman, whose recent death threat on a jihadist website also recommended that the comedian’s tongue be cut out. And Ferguson’s show is produced by Letterman’s company, Worldwide Pants. Whoever sent the envelope seems to have uncanny timing since virtually every late-night show, with the exception of except these two, is airing repeats this week.
Anyway, embedded above is Ferguson discussing the whole matter on his show last night.
