Round Two: Alec Baldwin Goes After Another FOX NY Reporter

scmidt_baldwinHours after confronting FOX reporter Robert Moses, Alec Baldwin continued his terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day, this time accusing WNYW reporter Linda Schmidt of hitting his wife in the face with a mic.

On the way to the couple’s SUV in front of their Manhattan apartment building, Baldwin’s wife Hilaria can be seen pointing in Schmidt’s direction and telling Baldwin “That’s the one that almost hit me” before the audio cuts out. But on camera she appeared to be pantomiming hitting herself in the mouth with a mic.

“You’re the one that almost hit my wife with a microphone in the face?” asked Baldwin approaching Schmidt. When Schmidt denied it was her Baldwin said, “You want to apologize to her on camera?” He then repeatedly asked Schmidt if she wanted to apologize before telling her to “Get the fuck out of here.”

After getting into his car, Baldwin came out onto the street again and was guided by police back into his vehicle, but not before telling them he wanted to press charges against the FOX reporter. You can watch video of the confrontation after the jump.

>UPDATE:TMZ reports, Baldwin hit the car parked in front of him on his way out after the run-in. On camera, he promised the owner he’ll pay for the damage.

Alec Baldwin Confronts WNYW Reporter

baldwin_mosesRobert Moses, reporter for New York FOX owned station WNYW was confronted and threatened by Alec Baldwin this morning.

Moses approached Baldwin who was walking towards the door of his apartment building and asked if the actor/MSNBC show host had any reaction to the conviction of his stalker yesterday. “You’re in my way.” said Baldwin. When Moses asked again Baldwin said, “You’re in my way.”

Baldwin then turned around before entering his building and told Moses if he was still in front of Baldwin’s building when he came out with his wife and kid, “you’re going to have a big problem.”

He then turned around again to make sure Moses understood him. “If you’re here when my wife and my kid come out here you’re going to have a big problem you know that don’t you?”

When Baldwin went back inside the building he turned around and said, “You are as dumb as you look. You are with Fox, right?” You can watch the video of the confrontation after the jump. Read more

WNYW Live Truck Provides Power to Polling Station in Queens

Voting at one polling place in hurricane-ravaged Rockaway Park, Queens, got off to a rough start this morning before the polls were even open. One of two generators that was intended to power lights for the tent did not have any gas early this morning, leaving the pop-up polling station in darkness.

WNYW reporter Robert Moses was reporting from the polling location today. A live truck from the Fox O&O was used to temporarily provide lights to voters in the early morning Tuesday (video above).

In Hurricane Mode, WNYW Calls In Robert Moses

With all hands on deck at New York stations as Hurricane Irene neared the area this afternoon, WNYW called in Robert Moses.

Although it obviously wasn’t that Robert Moses, the controversial figure responsible for building much of modern New York. The name of the Fox O&O’s rookie reporter provided anchors Greg Kelly and Rosanna Scotto an opportunity to spice up their ongoing coverage of the storm and also share an interesting factoid about WNYW’s Ernie Anastos.

After some banter, a grinning Moses shared some trivia about his namesake: the man responsible for building dozens of bridges and expressways never had his driver’s license. Kelly shot back with a factoid of his own: that Moses cut his own hair. To which Scotto shared this (dubious) piece of information: Anastos, the dapper veteran anchor, also cuts his own hair.
