This might have been fake and even paid for by Keith Olbermann's show.

Apparently, there is contradicting evidence on this, so who knows...

Olbermann and Mancow cop to the charity payment 10 seconds into the interview. It seems odd they would do that if it was nefarious in some way.

I didn't have time to read the whole thing, as I was breaking from working on a Saturday morning.

One comment I saw said that the waterboarding technique was wrong... the guy didn't know how to do it.

Can't say I know if that's legit or not. Never seen a real waterboarding.

The article tried to cast doubt on the legitimacy of the waterboarding, in part saying that the fact that Olbermann paid Mancow's favorite charity $10G negated the "newsiness" of the event. I don't know if they did it right either. Mancow seemed to give up pretty quick.

I don't know much about Mancow in general. He seems like the kind of radio guy I wouldn't like, but then I like Stern quite a bit, so who knows.
