Alec Baldwin Quits Media, Blames Breitbart
Breitbart News ^ | February 23, 2014 | Joel B. Pollak

Posted on 02/24/2014 9:17:03 PM PST by This Just In

On Sunday evening, award-winning actor and prominent left-wing activist Alec Baldwin announced that he was leaving "public life"--and blamed "Roger Ailes. And Fox. And Breitbart." In an extended rant to Joe Hogan, posted on vulture.com and published in New York magazine, Baldwin recounted his run-ins with paparazzi, his gay slur controversies, and his ill-fated talk show on MSNBC--but he reserved special resentment for Breitbart.

Thank you Roger, FOX, and Breitbart.

The next best thing to him leaving the country. I hope he keeps his promise this time.

I guess it’s too bad his personality took over. He was funny.

He called his own daughter names, bullies and threatens paparazzi, insults people using derogatory language (this is the short-list)....and he blames Breitbart for his failed come-back?

Stop whining, Alec. You’re fortunate to live in a society which enables you to trash it while earning millions.

Or he should start using meth, if he isn’t already.

He’d fit right in.

He did 2 good acting jobs. Hunt for Red October and Glengarry Glenross.

Those have been awhile ago, so.. Not too worried if he quits now.

He’s a good actor, but too two dimensional. We own Hunt for Red October. We enjoy his performance in that film, but Baldwin’s characters are often similar in behavior if you examine a lot of his films.

An Anthony Hopkins or Mel Gibson he is not.

Absolutely, he’s no ‘great’ by any means. After Glengarry he never did anything I’d call even just ok. Not that I’ve seen him in a lot. He hasn’t really headlined any movies I’ve seen. And I don’t watch too much network TV, so skipped him in all that.

But I will give some credit on those 2 roles :)

I hate to admit it but I thought he did a really good job with the small supporting role he had in "The Departed"

I’ll give him 3 weeks to stay out of the public eye. He’s an attention whore, which is the only reason he put this screed out.

I hated The Departed. Baldwin was predictable in his role. I viewed the movie as a typical Hollywood film: the celebration and exploitation of violence and nihilism.

Thank you Roger, Fox, and Breitbart, but I’m afraid he’ll be back. He’s a lefty, thus also a liar.

I must say I enjoyed reading Baldwin’s hilarious screed against everyone and anyone who done him wrong. And the list is endless! From his little daughter to some two-bit actor who - according to our man - wrecked his Broadway show. In between, it’s Mika Brezinski and Joe Scarborough and those pesky fans who crowd around him at Starbucks.

What a chapter he’d make in a new edition of Kenneth Anger’s Hollywood Babylon.

I actually thought he was a good actor. His antics make me think he has an troubled soul, and needs to mend it with God.
