Lefty radio host David Shuster was trying to call out actor Alec Baldwin over a paparazzi issue this morning, but instead directed his fury toward a guy named Alex Baldwin, a California-based designer with an addiction to (no joke) hot tea. Shu, between us girls, are you feeling okay? You need sleep? Even so, a fiercely loyal follower, Mocha333, is firmly on Shuster’s side. He tweeted, “Did someone hit David Shuster in the head?

Um, not so fast Mocha.

Here’s what happened: This morning Alec Baldwin reported that a photographer “almost hit him in the face.” He soon announced that the photographer had gone to the hospital claiming injuries.
