Letterman tells Winfrey of affairs, depression, Leno

The late-night talk-show host gave an extraordinary interview to Oprah Winfrey in which he talked about his feuds with her and Jay Leno, and about his efforts to make amends for his affairs with ‘‘Late Show’’ staff members that became public in 2009.
