Alec, Alec, Alec, just admit to yourself what everyone else knows
The Emmy-winning actor, who allegedly assaulted two separate journalists in just one week, is now blaming his public relation woes on … wait for it … New Media.
Oh, and the vast Right Wing Conspiracy, too.
In an interview with Charlie Rose, Baldwin said that because he’s “very vocal” about his political views, his “opposition within the Internet” moved quickly to distort the narrative.
After yesterday’s incident, the actor said, “All of the sudden, within 30 minutes, the misrepresentation of the story is out there by your political opponents. …Fox Nation says ‘Baldwin punches photographer.’ Not true. And that’s the thing that I find is the most difficult.”
The photographer in question begs to differ.
Funny, as is pointed out at the link, most “outspoken” people manage to not do the things Baldwin does
George Clooney is very vocal about his political leanings. So are Tim Robbins, Susan Sarandon, Tom Hanks, Matthew Modine, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Harvey Weinstein and a plethora of Tinsel Town types.
Somehow, the aforementioned Hollywood players aren’t accused of wrestling with photographers, running over people on their bicycles or getting booted off of airplanes
See Alec, it IS you!
Well, that is not too likely, but another actor has now voiced their displeasure at Obama’s vacationing ways
Actor Steve Guttenberg is the latest Hollywood type to voice his disapproval of President Barack Obama, saying he‘s fed up with the first family’s vacationing and Obama’s mingling with the stars.
Guttenberg, perhaps best known for his role in the 1980s “Police Academy” franchise and “Three Men and a Baby,” made the comments during a recent interview with CreditCards.com.
While the discussion was largely finance-based, things turned political when Guttenberg was asked whether he thinks Washington can “rein in the misbehavior”:
It’s hard to believe in the presidency anymore. I voted for Obama, I love Obama, but I don’t want to see Obama on “The View,” I don’t want to see him playing Frisbee, I don‘t want to know that it’s $40,000 a plate at George Clooney’s house, and I adore George Clooney. Hey man, I‘ve got a friend of mine who’s got a $7 an hour job at Dunkin Donuts and he can’t get a $9 an hour job over at the country club because there are so many people in front of him. I believe that the president should be his desk all day. I don’t want to see him on vacation, I don‘t want to see him at Martha’s Vineyard, I don’t want to see Mrs. Obama in Spain. No, no, I do not want to see that because everybody’s struggling. These CEOs shouldn’t be taking all this money. No Rolls Royces. No private planes.
