    Is 30 Rock still on the air? Cant say that i have ever watched an episode but it seems to me that since Tracy Morgan got a free pass with his anti-gay slurs Baldwin should get the same.

    Sometimes I think that Democrats and liberals don't really give a damn about gays, but just keep the Big Tent open for them so they can have more numbers for rally purposes. They do the same thing for blacks.
    Dems by and large do not and have proven it time and again, but really, you don't see the diff between attacking someone for their political views and their sexuality/race/gender? Even Fox canned a football analyst for anti-gay comments. It's a stupid ass way to conduct oneself and garners no sympathy from me. Then again, anyone could have seen this coming. Baldwin has always been a pig and the mistake was hiring him in the first place.

    It seems like Baldwin can't keep control over himself.

    I think NBC is covering themselves with these other charges. I think he was fired for the "anti-gay" rant at the photographer.

    Any ideas on this?
    Baldwin is a self-centered jerk just like the rest of his family - all low grade actors on a good day.

    That being said, it is much ado about nothing.

    Everyone these days is looking to be offended about something, and make a big about it because they can.

    The 1A guarantees freedom of speech for just about anything, so everyone needs to stop being offended over every little thing said.

    Basically, everyone needs to STFU and get a spine.

    Has he 'apologized' for any of it? I hate those half assed apologies that you know they don't even really mean just saying it to shut everyone up. But I do think if someone is acting like a jerk to everyone at work and causing problems, I could see how that might be grounds to be released from the job if they don't shape up. Who wants to work with someone that acts like that?


    As for Baldwin personally, I loved him in Beetlejuice.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I'll take a guess you haven't seen Bio-Dome. Oscar winning performance there.

    Oh, I think he's a good actor. But not good enough to pretend that he's an adult who's able to control himself. The public temper tantrums are sad in a person his age. His employer apparently realized that he's too great a liability, and I hope the shock convinces Baldwin to enter into therapy for realz.

    That doesn't explain, though, why that same employer hasn't disciplined Bashir for his appalling on-air comment about Sarah Palin. What hypocrisy.
