Thursday, TMZ reports that MSNBC’s Alec Baldwin is at it again. The actor was caught on film calling a photographer a “c**ksucking f*g.”
MSNBC hired Baldwin knowing he was already guilty of hurling anti-gay hate speechat a reporter. Back in June, Baldwin not only used his Twitter accountto hurl anti-gay slurs, he threatened the reporter and called on hisTwitter followers to “straighten out this f**king little bitch.”
Almost all of the mainstream media gave Baldwin a total pass for his reprehensible behavior last June. In fact, afterwards he won a weekly show on MSNBC (which is currently collapsing in the ratings).
Maybe the media was exhausted after destroying cooking guru Paula Deen over something she said thirty years ago.
MSNBC portrays itself as a left-leaning, pro-gay cable news channel. A number of MSNBC’s on-air personalities are openly gay, including Rachel Maddow, Thomas Roberts, and Jonathan Capehart.
Baldwin is also a high-profile commercial spokesman for Capital One.
