|'Bountygate' brings CNN to Ferriday|
I should have posted a warning Sunday around 7:20 p.m.
Do not adjust your set. Your television is not broken. That is CNN you are watching, not America's Most Wanted.
In case you missed it, CNN presented a feature on Ferriday's Walter Johnson and his hit on former New Orleans kicker Morten Andersen back in 1987 during its entertainment program at 7 p.m.
Courtney Sager of CNN called our office about two weeks ago and asked how to get in touch with Walter. After I told her I would get in touch with him for her, I asked Sager what they were doing.
She said it was a feature on Walter.
Considering all the publicity over the New Orleans Saints and "bountygate," it did not take too much detective work to figure this one out.
"Let me guess," I said. "Y'all are wanting to talk to Walter about the hit on Morten Andersen."
Sager acknowledged that and asked if I knew how to get in touch with Walter.
I made some phone calls, but knowing how private and reserved Walter is, I figured getting him to talk to CNN would be a big challenge.
