Alec Baldwin, Fired by MSNBC, Asks Why Not Martin Bashir?
Baldwin came under fire for allegedly using a gay slur against a photographer on the street, while Bashir called for Republican tea party favorite Sarah Palin to be administered unprintable punishments from the days of slavery. Bashir's remarks were scripted and made it onto his program.
"Martin Bashir's on the air, and he made his comment on the air! I dispute half the comment I made," Baldwin told Gothamist.
Baldwin acknowledged using profanity during his verbal attack, but insisted he did not use a gay slur. Bashir made his comments on a Friday show and apologized the next Monday. MSNBC has made no comment about punishing him.
