Alec Baldwin Clarifies Olbermann, Maddow Remarks

MSNBC3_4.14.jpgIn what is both a clarification of an earlier post and a laceration of AOL’s home page, (“the garbage barge of the internet,”) Alec Baldwin sets the record straight about his feelings toward MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow.

I said I was a fan of both Keith and Rachel. Watch them all the time. I suppose I hold them to a higher standard as I feel that now is our time.

And later…

As for Keith and Rachel, I would never pick a fight with them. You think I want Keith Olbermann gnawing on me on national television? You haven’t been gnawed till you’ve been gnawed by Keith. And Rachel? I love Rachel. Doesn’t everyone? But just as I don’t want root beer for dinner, I like my “news programming” a little straighter, at least during these times.

Baldwin took on the AOL homepage, “which makes Us Weekly look like Paris Match” because the site wrote that Baldwin had “picked a fight” with Maddow and Olberman.
