Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, June 01, 2020

Herb Stempel, whose admission that television game shows were fixed led to a major scandal and congressional investigation, has died. He passed at age 93 on April 7, but his death just recently came to light. Stempel was a contestant on the game show Twenty-One, and became a nerdy star for seeming to know something about everything. The only problem was that he was supplied with the answers in advance, with the promise of winning $25,000 if he kept quiet. The sum later ballooned to just short of $50,000.

His story is quite a remarkable tale of pop culture and the allure of cheating.

Try not to bring that idiot up when it's not necessary.
