Extreme NY Post confuses Letterman

In this short clip David Letterman is baffled by a recent 'New York Post' cover featuring the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

The editors at 'The New York Post' - not an esteemed publication on the best of days - were clearly so excited by the death of terrorist al-Zarqawi that they forgot the protocol of journalistic integrity.

The cover, which Letterman holds up to the cameras, has a huge close-up photo of Zarqawi's bruised, cut-up face, with a speech bubble proclaiming "warm up the virgins." Let's hope the Pulitzer people were paying attention.
