Unbalanced Norwegian shuns Letterman

Killing Al Qaeda terrorists has its price...for David Letterman's audience:

Eskil Rønningsbakken, originally from Stange in Hedmark County, was supposed to perform one of his balancing stunts atop the New York skyscraper from which the "Late Show with David Letterman" is broadcast by the CBS network.

He was due to be interviewed by Letterman after the stunt, but he told local newspaper Hamar Arbeiderblad on Tuesday that he's broken his contract with CBS.

"This has its background in the USA's last bombing attack on Pakistan," Rønningsbakken told the newspaper, according to news burean NTB.

"After Friday's (bombing), it's not of interest to contribute anything at all to a country like the USA," Rønningsbakken said.
