Alec Baldwin Blames Gays For Getting Fired By MSNBC


That lasted about as long as Michael Savage at MSNBC or Rush Limbaugh at ESPN. I think Ann Coulter lasted longer at the National Review. It always amazes me when the MSM hires a bomb thrower, and then are shocked when the person they hired throws bombs.

If I had a show on tv and I was caught calling some group of blacks "ni**ers", I too would be fired. And if I were to then double down on my own stupidity and claim that blacks got me fired, I'd be further ostracized.

No, Alec, gays didnt get you fired. You got you fired.

What do you mean? His firing doesn't bother me at all. Moral consistency is ALWAYS a good thing. What I find ironic is how some on the right are bent out of shape over CBS's firing of right-winger Lara Logan, but applauded CBS for firing them for firing left-winger Dan Rather for committing precisely the same offense.

What do you mean?

is their a bunch of groups with "gay crusaders" just looking for situations like this to get publicity and to punish an alleged transgressor against the cause? yes

is arec bardrin part of other similar groups that may or may not be focused on homosexuals? yes

well the question is just how wrong logan was. it's too early to make that determination in my mind, but she is probably on the same level as rather and needs the same punishment (at the least, for being bad at presenting news stories)

i'm pretty sure that logan fricked up, but i can see how this could easily be a manufactured crusade by the media to defend their boy

specifically that people on the left hated for Rather to get fired but are delighted with this other dismissal. its no different, at all, than the righties but interestingly you only chose to call the righties out in that post.

Who's getting bent out of shape for firing Lara Logan. She apparently didn't do her due dillegence on the Benghazi story by not following up on the subject's inconsistencies and it cost her her job. HOWEVER, had she been "one of their own," this would have simply been swept under the rug.

See the NYT IRT the "nuclear option." NO for Republicans = bad, NO for Democrats = pure awesomeness.

Not a big fan of Baldwin's politics (or of him as a man for that matter). But that was a fricking great character.

Baldwin is not so much a bomb thrower, as he is a crude unsettled soul. He's an undisciplined intellectual half-wit.

I can understand the appeal of putting an Eliot Spitzer, David Axelrod, or Stephanie Cutter on a news station set. They are bright and capable of intellectual contribution in various roles. They might toss a few grenades, but at least they'd have some critical ability to justify the explosion.

Baldwin is a dolt. He'd be an adequate fit as 1-of-5 players on The View, or on a Fox and Friends-type morning ying-yang, but as a nighttime news host? Nah. Very strange choice.

Does this mean he will finally be moving to Europe as he promised when GWB won re-election?

Can he take big, fat, stupid Ed with him?

There is a method to the madness....all press is good press...hire a thrower of bombs, stand back and let said bomb tosser do what bomb tossers do, and "react" to public opinion, all the while watching the ratings go through the roof.....

It is a win win for the shows or medial outlet....if the bomb thrower doesn't say or do something that gets them fired their base of support is going to watch or read and when they do chunk the bomb people who have never seen or heard of the show will be aware or its existence.....it isn't a calculated risk but it turns out well...

Bob Costas is the nest one in line.....the NFL is setting up for a huge media shite storm....
