Here are All The Media People Alec Baldwin Bashed in New York Piece

Alec Baldwin is a self-important baby with anger issues. We know this. But before “bowing out of public life” (which doesn’t really mean anything) via a gigantic New York piece, Baldwin had to remind us of that once again, by ranting and raving about everyone and everything.

Here’s a list of the media people — and media in general — he bashed in the piece:

  • Joe Scarborough and Morning Joe: ”Morning Joe was boring. Scarborough is neither eloquent nor funny. And merely cranky doesn’t always work well in the morning.”
  • Photographers: “Photographers today get right up in your face, my wife’s, my baby’s. They are baiting you. You can tell they want to get into it with you.”
  • MSNBC: “The problem with everybody on MSNBC is none of them are funny, although that doesn’t prevent them from trying to be.”

  • MSNBC president Phil Griffin: “Couldn’t give a flying fuck about content.”
  • Rachel Maddow: “I also think she’s a phony who doesn’t have the same passion for the truth off-camera that she seems to have on the air.”
  • The Huffington Post: “Tripe.”
  • Anderson Cooper: “The self-appointed Jack Valenti of gay media culture.”
  • The media: “Now I loathe and despise the media in a way I did not think possible.”

Regarding that last point? The feeling is mutual, dear Alec.
