It's not Alec Baldwin's fault. Honest.
The Emmy-winning actor, who allegedly assaulted two separate journalists in just one week, is now blaming his public relation woes on ... wait for it ... New Media.
Oh, and the vast Right Wing Conspiracy, too.
In an interview with Charlie Rose, Baldwin said that because he’s “very vocal” about his political views, his “opposition within the Internet” moved quickly to distort the narrative.
After yesterday’s incident, the actor said, “All of the sudden, within 30 minutes, the misrepresentation of the story is out there by your political opponents. …Fox Nation says ‘Baldwin punches photographer.’ Not true. And that's the thing that I find is the most difficult.”
The photographer in question begs to differ
George Clooney is very vocal about his political leanings. So are Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Tom Hanks, Matthew Modine, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Harvey Weinstein and a plethora of Tinsel Town types.
Somehow, the aforementioned Hollywood players aren't accused of wrestling with photographers, running over people on their bicycles or getting booted off of airplanes.
