Page Six reports that Alec Baldwin has been fired by MSNBC. For a short time, Baldwin hosted a Friday evening talk show on the cable news network. That all changed a couple of weeks ago when Baldwin was caught on tape calling a photographer a "c**ksucking f*g."

MSNBC was at first quiet about the incident. Then a two-week suspension was announced.  Baldwin's suspension was set to end this coming Friday.

Baldwin's firing will not end MSNBC's public relations problems. The uproar over Martin Bashir's attack on former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has shown no signs of abating. Bashir has since apologized. But many (and not just conservatives) believe that wasn't good enough.

Bashir has not been on the air since Monday. MSNBC says that is due to a pre-scheduled vacation.

Of course he had to go.....you cannot upset the gay natzis. Oh I think he was going to be fired anyway, his ratings were horrible, even for MSNBC.

I noticed they have Samuel Jackson doing the Capital One comercials these days in my area.

Vaguely gay slurs are much, much worse than saying someone should defecate in Sarah Palin's mouth, dontcha know.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

From another report on this epic event:

Quote
Baldwin’s dismissal was decided on partly because of his diva-like behavior toward co-workers, a source said.

Besides demanding a humidifier because he claimed the air at 30 Rock was too dry, Baldwin alienated staffers when he demanded a separate makeup room being used by a woman with cancer who is sensitive to hairspray.

When Baldwin was told he couldn’t have his way, he allegedly bellowed at the top of his lungs, “I don’t give a f - - k if she has cancer or not, I want that f - - king makeup room.”
