Alec Baldwin Fired from MSNBC for Anti-Gay Slurs … Baldwin Points Out Hypocrisy, Asks Why “Martin Bashir’s On the Air” with Comment He Made About Sarah Palin “On the Air”
Alec Balwin is out at MSNBC …
The NY Post is reporting that MSNBC has had it with Alec Baldwin and fired him. It would appear his latest unhinged rant was just the final excuse that MSNBC needed to whack Baldwin and his weak ratings show after just four episodes. My that was quick. It would appear though that according to reports that Baldwin was quite the PITA diva. Baldwin’s unhinged antics reported by the media would appear to have been common place at MSNBC as well by the classy Baldwin. But that is what happens when you screamed at a media photographer, calling him a “c—s—ing faggot.”
Just how bad must Baldwin truly have been to deal with for an uber-lib like him being given his walking slip by liberal BSNBC?
The rage-aholic’s weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” was canceled Tuesday because of the actor’s foul-mouthed, homophobic rant at a New York Post photographer.
Baldwin’s spokesman Matthew Hiltzik and a rep for the cable channel said, “We are jointly confirming that ‘Up Late’ will not continue on MSNBC.” The MSNBC spokeswoman added, “This is a mutual parting and we wish Alec all the best.”
Baldwin was suspended — supposedly for two weeks — after he screamed at a Post photographer, calling him a “c—s—ing faggot.” The “30 Rock” star was supposed to resume his weekly show Friday.
Besides demanding a humidifier because he claimed the air at 30 Rock was too dry, Baldwin alienated colleagues when he demanded a separate makeup room that was being used by a woman with cancer who is sensitive to hairspray.
When Baldwin was told he couldn’t have his way, he allegedly bellowed at the top of his lungs, “I don’t give a f?-?-?k if she has cancer or not, I want that f?-?-?king makeup room.”
As reported at Page Six, Baldwin was impossible to work with and became more and more impossible to work with as his ratings sunk. What a combination, a male diva, a bomb of a show and a lib who did not want to work hard. There is a recipe for success. In typical Alec Baldwin style, he pretty much blamed others for the show’s demise as Baldwin blamed “the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy” for the show’s cancellation. Baldwin said, “They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself.”
A network source told Page Six’s Emily Smith, “The frustration set in several weeks ago. All Baldwin’s shows were unwatchable. He assumed it would be a success, and when he saw the ratings were a disaster, he stopped wanting to do a lot of work for a little audience.
“Baldwin found out that cable news is tough, and stopped making an effort,” said the source.
This is good, when LIBS attack each other It would appear that Alec Baldwin told the Gothamist that there seems to be just a little bit of hypocrisy as he was fired, yet Martin Bashir made an over the top comments about Sarah Palin on air and nothing happened to him, not even a suspension. C’mon man, you know better than that Alec … you can call a conservative woman every name in the book and wish anything upon her, as for gay slurs, that is strictly verboden.
“Martin Bashir’s on the air, and he made his comment on the air! I dispute half the comment I made… if I called him ‘c*cksucking maggot’ or a ‘c*cksucking motherf*cker’… ‘faggot’ is not the word that came out of my mouth. That I know. But you’ve got the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy—Rich Ferraro and Andrew Sullivan—they’re out there, they’ve got you. Rich Ferraro, this is probably one of his greatest triumphs. They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself.”
MSNBC Suspends Unhinged, Lunatic, Moonbat, Liberal, Abusive, Homophobic Host Alec Baldwin from “Up Late” for Two Weeks … Cursing at Photograpgher, “Co*ksucking f*g.”
We are asked the age old question, if “unhinged” host of ‘Up Late’ is suspended for two weeks on MSNBC, will any body know its gone?
From Variety comes the news that MSNBC has suspended the unglued Alec Baldwin for two weeks. Baldwin has had quite a past week. . Just hours after a courtroom victory against his stalker, Alec Baldwin is seen chasing down and threatening a photographer outside his Manhattan apartment and calling him a “c**ksucking f*g.” Hmm, making a gay slur in this day and age? Even MSNBC had to act; however, had it been a Republican, GLAD would be calling for their firing.
Alec Baldwin’s “Up Late” program will not air tonight or next Friday on MSNBC in the wake of comments the actor made while dealing with reporters seeking to question him about a salacious court case in which he is involved.
“I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry,” Baldwin said in a statement posted on MSNBC’s website. “Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward”.
Oh wait, another dust up: ‘You Are as Dumb as You Look’: Alec Baldwin’s Latest Public Dust-Up with Journalist Includes Swipe at Fox News.
Actor Alec Baldwin stood toe-to-toe with a TV news reporter outside his Manhattan apartment Friday morning, angrily demanding to be left alone and saying the reporter would “have a big problem” if the public sidewalk questioning continued.
That Robert Moses works for Fox News affiliate WNYW-TV in New York wasn’t lost on the outspoken liberal thespian, who took a concluding swipe at Moses and his employer.
Moses was covering the conviction of a woman who was stalking Baldwin and asked the actor for follow-up comments; Baldwin, however, warned Moses to leave the sidewalk in front of his building, WNYW noted.
Baldwin, who was returning to his apartment after walking his dog, started by telling Moses, “You’re in my way” as he headed down the sidewalk.
Before finally entering the apartment building, Baldwin turned around again and told Moses, “You are as dumb as you look — you are with Fox, right?”
I would like to address the comments I made this past week.
I did not intend to hurt or offend anyone with my choice of words, but clearly I have – and for that I am deeply sorry. Words are important. I understand that, and will choose mine with great care going forward. What I said and did this week, as I was trying to protect my family, was offensive and unacceptable. Behavior like this undermines hard-fought rights that I vigorously support. I understand “Up Late” will be taken off the schedule for tonight and next week.
Baldwin’s show has been replaced by an episode of ‘Lockup’. What will MSLSD do when Lockup gets better ratings?
UPDATE I: Alec Baldwin: My MSNBC Show Might Not Return.
If the show did not return, I guess it’s 10 viewers will be extremely disappointed.
“If the show dies, its fate ends up being no different than the vast majority of start-up TV programming,” the actor wrote on Saturday.
The morning after MSNBC announced a two-week suspension of Alec Baldwin’s late night show, the actor has expressed uncertainty if the program will return at all.
“Whether the show comes back at all is at issue right now.”
Could MSNBC become any more of a joke? Looks like the Magic 8 Ball says … signs point to yes.
As reported by Mediaite, Alec Baldwin is going to host a prime time show on the MSNBC cable news channel. According to Mediaite, Bladwin will not be replacing any of the stellar prime time news talent that MSNBC as assembled, but instead will replace the Lockup prison documentary series that airs Friday evenings. Are you kidding, that is actually the only show worth watching on the pathetic network. It would appear that MSNBC is neither confirming or denying the rumor.
Is the only reason why anyone would watch this to see if he has a melt down on live TV? But alas there is no way they would allow such a show to be taped live.
War on woman? Take a good look what MSNBC thinks should host a show on their network … Alec Baldwin calls his 12 year old daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig.”
Mediaite has learned from a senior source in the cable news industry with knowledge of MSNBC’s programming that actor Alec Baldwin is getting his own weekly show in MSNBC’s primetime lineup.
According to our source, the so far untitled show will air Fridays at 10 p.m. ET and will feature a large dose of Baldwin’s outspoken liberal politics.
The gig would make sense, considering Baldwin’s long history with the NBC family. He starred on the network’s award-winning sitcom 30 Rock for seven years, has frequently hosted Saturday Night Live, and hosted the network’s American airing of 2007?s Live Earth concert. Most important, Baldwin’s fiercely liberal and often combative political views make sense for a network that has become the place for progressive viewpoints on cable.
Twitchy is a flutter with some great tweets regarding Alec Baldwin to MSNBC. How comical, pathetic and telling is it that FOX News puts an intelligent, aspiring and up and coming female talent like Megyn Kelly to prime time on their network and MSNBC puts a tired, old cranky, child hating, gay bashing lunatic white man like Alec Baldwin on theirs? Really, is this how far this cable network has fallen? I am going to go out on a limb and say it will not be too long before Lock Up is back on Friday’s.
Doug Powers at Michelle Malkin.com could not have stated it any better, “If the story is true, it’s another desperate attempt by MSNBC to make Al Sharpton look like the rational one”. Amen brother!
Hypocrite Alec Baldwin Who Professes Hatred for Photographers, Sells his Wedding Pics to People Magazine
Priceless, what a sell out, hypocrite. Alec Baldwin, infamous for getting into physical and verbal altercations with photographers, turns around and sells his pics the the tabloids, the very folks that he claims to despise. I would dare say that if it were not for Alec Baldwin getting free PR with his volital temper, he would get no PR at all. Now after all his complaining and grandstanding that photo-journalists are intruding on his privacy, he looks for $’s for his wedding pics. Just unreal. Although, with Baldwin’s waning popularity, maybe he might get a buck, fifty.
What a sellout!
He hates photographers — except when they’re paying him. After a week of smacking shutterbugs and railing about how much hates the tabloids, Alec Baldwin sold his wedding pictures to an entertainment glossy — People magazine.
Ooops He Did It Again … Alec Baldwin Gets into Another Altercation with a Photographer, “I want you to shut the f**k up “
Ooops He Did It Again … Alec Baldwin Gets into Another Altercation with a Photographer
Actor Alec Bladwin appears to have done it again. TMZ is reporting Baldwin got into another fracas with a photographer. TMZ has the VIDEO of Baldwin once again losing it with a photo-journalist. WOW, one of these times this guy is just going to totally lose it. Baldwin is a bomb just waiting to go off.
Alec Baldwin got physical with ANOTHER photog in New York City moments ago … verbally blasting the guy in the middle of the street, squeezing his arm and ordering him to scram.
It’s unclear what touched off the aggressive confrontation … but we do know the paps have been following Alec all over the place since the infamous shoving incident at the court house last week.
It seems Alec finally had enough …
This time, Alec — clutching a pink stuffed animal — approached one of the photogs who was hanging out in front of his apartment building and lashed out, “I want you to shut the f**k up … leave my neighbor alone … get outta here.”
It was just a couple of weeks ago that Alec Baldwin had punched a photographer outside of a Manhattan marriage license bureau.
Alec Baldwin in Trouble Again … Daily News Photographer Says Baldwin Punched Him Outside Manhattan Marriage License Bureau in NYC
What, Alec Baldwin has anger management issues … say it isn’t so.
According to reports, 30 Rock actor Alec Baldwin is being accused of punching Daily News photographer Marcus Santos after Baldwin and his fiancee Hilaria Thomas were leaving the Marriage Bureau in New York City. A complaint has been filed against Baldwin with the NYPD. Alec Baldwin had a different version of events, go figure. The narcissist actually said on Twitter, he later compared the incident to the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin: “I suppose if the offending paparazzi was wearing a hoodie and I shot him, it would all blow over.” UNREAL. This fool would make light of the death of Trayvon Martin. Baldwin needs mental help.
Who me, anger management issues?
However, when it comes to Baldwin’s temper and self-centered actions, his past actions speak for themselves. Maybe “smart” Alec Baldwin thought he was on a plane at LAX? Folks like Alec Baldwin think they are special and live under a different set of rules.
The groom-to-be went ballistic when photographer Marcus Santos snapped him outside the Worth St. office after Baldwin and fiancee Hilaria Thomas picked up their license in lower Manhattan about 9:30 a.m.
“He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me — one time, right in the chin,” said Santos, 42, adding that he was coming to the defense of another photographer. “And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. He lunged at me like raging bull.”
The incident was seen by a witness, Goran Veljic, who said that it wasn’t pretty.
“He was very mad. He was mad, mad, mad!” Veljic said.
Veljic told CBS 2?s Tony Aiello that Santos and another photographer were indeed stepping back.
“I saw, they was, you know, far from him, take pictures, move back, he walked. They don’t touch him,” Veljic said.
A note to Baldwin’s fiancee Hilaria Thomas, good luck with the marriage toots, you are going to need it.
UPDATE I: Best title of Baldwin rant … from the NY POST, ‘Sheet for Brains’.
Say it isn’t so, a liberal who thinks that the rules don’t apply to them.
What a shock, a liberal not listening to some one in authority and thinking that the rules do not apply to them. Such was the case with NBC 30 Rock actor Alec Baldwin aboard an American Airlines plane at LAX. Baldwin was removed from the flight for not listening to the flight attendant. The incident caused the plane to have to return to the gate and delayed the flight for other passengers. More from TMZ regarding the incident.
What a smart Alec.
Hot-head Alec Baldwin was kicked off an American Airlines flight this afternoon in Los Angeles because he was playing a game on his phone apparently past the point when passengers are supposed to have turned off their devices.
On his Twitter account, Baldwin wrote: “Flight attendant on American [Airlines] reamed me out 4 playing WORDS W FRIENDS while we sat at the gate, not moving.”
Fellow passengers stuck on the runway at Los Angeles International Airport quickly tweeted about the incident moments after it took place.
“On an AA flight at LAX. Alec Baldwin removed from the plane. We had to go back to the gate. Terrible that everyone had to wait.”
Baldwin was aboard AA Flight 4, which was delayed an hour, when the “30 Rock” star was booted for not listening to the flight attendant.
So here we have an example of some one behaving badly and not following the rules, yet Baldwin tweeted as if he was the victim.Oh and wait, he attacked women as well. I guess he must have had a flashback of leaving a message for his daughter calling her a little pig. What would have happened if Baldwin had acted so rudely to TSA agents before getting on the plane?
An American Airlines spokesman declined comment, saying the company does not comment on “something that might or might not have happened” due to customers’ privacy concerns.
Meanwhile, Baldwin continued his criticism of the airline on Twitter.
He vowed never to fly American Airlines again.
“#theresalwaysunited,” Baldwin tweeted. “Last flight w American. Where retired Catholic school gym teachers from the 1950?s find jobs as flight attendants.”
Nice. How selfish could one be, but then again, He’s Alec Baldwin and he’s special.

UPDATE I: American Airlines fires back on Facebook of what took place to have Baldwin tossed off plane.
Since an extremely vocal customer has publicly identified himself as being removed from an American Airlines flight on Tuesday, Dec. 6, we have elected to provide the actual facts of the matter as well as the FAA regulations which American, and all airlines, must enforce. Cell phones and electronic devices are allowed to be used while the aircraft is at the gate and the door is open for boarding. When the door is closed for departure and the seat belt light is turned on, all cell phones and electronic devices must be turned off for taxi-out and take-off. This passenger declined to turn off his cell phone when asked to do so at the appropriate time. The passenger ultimately stood up (with the seat belt light still on for departure) and took his phone into the plane’s lavatory. He slammed the lavatory door so hard, the cockpit crew heard it and became alarmed, even with the cockpit door closed and locked. They immediately contacted the cabin crew to check on the situation. The passenger was extremely rude to the crew, calling them inappropriate names and using offensive language. Given the facts above, the passenger was removed from the flight and denied boarding.
Alec Baldwin to Run for US Rep if GOP’s Randy Altschuler Wins in New York’s 1st Congressional District … Just What America Needs
ALEC BALDWIN … THE SAVIOR OF THE DEMOCRT PARTY!
Alec Baldwin to run for the US House of New York’s 1st Congressional District if the GOP challenger Randy Altschuler defeats incumbent Democrat Tim Bishop. Presently the race is too close to call; however, Altsculer is in the lead. Obviously, the “moonbat” LEFT has yet to figure out the message that “WE THE PEOPLE” sent on November 2, 2010.
It is unconfirmed as to whether Alec Baldwin will make part of his campaign, the right to call your 11 year old daughter a “rude, thoughtless little pig”. (LISTEN HERE) Just what we need in Washington, DC to represent the people. Is this what Democrats have sunk to? Can you imagine this man in Congress? we rid ourselves of Alan Grayson and Democrats want to inflict this upon America.
What we can expect on the floor of the US House of Representatives if Alec Baldwin is Elected
Warning: Adult language
The network is quoting sources close to actor Alec Baldwin as saying he intends to challenge Randy Altschuler of New York for Congress in two years if the Republican candidate ends up winning the House seat currently occupied by Rep. Tim Bishop, D-N.Y. The Altschuler-Bishop race is one of a handful still deemed too close to call; the most recent count shows Bishop, a four-term incumbent, trailing by less than 400 votes.
Baldwin is no stranger to politics. He has been both criticized and acclaimed for his outspoken support of the Democratic Party (he donated $2,000 to Bishop’s campaign this year), and in an interview with CNN last year, revealed his interest in running for public office.
“The desire is there; that’s one component,” he said. “The other component is opportunity.”
Now the opportunity could materialize, if New York’s 1st Congressional District, which includes Baldwin’s Long Island home, turns Republican.
Maybe Alec can use this for a campaign commercial?
