Online Commenter Warned About Josh Duggar Molestation Accusations 8 Years Ago

Originally posted 05/24/2015 06:05PM

When allegations that 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar molested five young girls resurfaced this week, fans of the TLC reality show were shocked. To the millions of viewers who've tuned in each week, the Duggars personified family values, from their strict rules about modesty to their dedication to religion.

The illusion was shattered Thursday, when Josh, 27, admitted he "acted inexcusably" as a teenager. But rumors of the former Christian lobbyist's past are nothing new: They first surfaced online eight years ago. As Gawker's Defamer points out, a commenter called "Alice" recounted the allegations on a blog, ibiblio.org, in May 2007. Other sites such as FreeJinger.org have long cited Alice's comments.

David Letterman: CBS Had 'Good Reason to Fire Me' After My Sex Scandal

Originally posted 04/30/2015 11:55AM

As his 33-year-long tenure on late night comes to a close, David Letterman is feeling reflective.

Though he was candid about his sex scandal when it made headlines in 2009 after a blackmail attempt forced his hand, the late-night host has kept mum on the issue since.

In a revealing interview with The New York Times, Letterman, 68, was able to look at the scandal with some distance. "I think [CBS] would have had good reason to fire me," he said, adding that he was "largely ignorant as to what, really, I had done."
