    NBCUniversal has removed four episodes of “30 Rock” from streaming services and syndication that feature characters in blackface. The request for the removal of the episodes came from show co-creators Tina Fey and Robert Carlock. “As we strive to do the work and do better in regards to race in America, we believe that these episodes featuring actors in race-changing makeup are best taken out of circulation,” said Fey in a statement. “I understand now that ‘intent; is not a free pass for white people to use these images. I apologize for pain they have caused. Going forward, no comedy-loving...

    Protesters have defaced a statue of Philadelphia abolitionist Matthias Baldwin, dousing it with paint and spray-painting the word “colonizer” on the pedestal. It was not immediately clear if the protesters were part of an organized group such as Antifa. The graffiti has since been cleaned off the statue, as Joe Walsh, a member of the Friends of Matthias Baldwin Park, told National Review in an email. The statue itself stands outside Philadelphia City Hall. The statue was vandalized at some point during the days of demonstrations that occurred in Philadelphia, a spokesperson for the mayor’s office said in an email....

    "In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, there was an unprecedented increase in requests for absentee ballots, as more and more voters sought to comply with public health guidance and avoid potential risk to their health by avoiding in-person voting," they wrote Thursday in a letter to Inspector General of the U.S. Postal Service Tammy Whitcomb. "The United States Postal Service (USPS) in short, had an out-sized role in ensuring Wisconsinites could safely exercise the right to vote and participate in our democracy." "Unfortunately, there have been numerous accounts from the state that USPS failed to fulfill that critical function for...

    Actor and Saturday Night Live cast member Pete Davidson appeared in a sketch thanking Alec Baldwin’s President Trump for “bringing jobs back to ISIS” just as reports surfaced that President Donald Trump had ordered U.S. military forces to conducted a raid that ended with the death of the murderous ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. Davidson joined Baldwin’s Trump on stage as he was delivering a speech similar to the one President Trump gave last week at a campaign rally Albuquerque, New Mexico “So great to see a young Trump supporter,” Baldwin said. “And where are you from son, New Mexico?”...

    Alec Baldwin hit back at President Donald Trump’s rage-tweet “Saturday Night Live” attack, asking whether the president’s “ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE” smear constitutes “a threat to my safety and that of my family.” The actor known for portraying Trump on the comedy show raised the question Sunday night. Baldwin’s question followed a Trump tweet blasting “SNL” as “tired” and NBC as “Fake News.” “Very unfair and should be looked into,” Trump wrote. “This is the real Collusion!” He added: “THE RIGGED AND CORRUPT MEDIA IS THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!”

    Editor’s note: The subject of this story is being identified because he’s pushed radical rhetoric and has advocated for politically-motivated violence from behind a mask. The Daily Caller News Foundation does not and will not publish truly private information such as home addresses. The Daily Caller News Foundation has determined that an influential Antifa leader uses aliases to spread radical and often violent rhetoric while concealing his actual identity. Joseph “Jose” Alcoff works with congressional Democrats as part of his day job as a manager with a DC-based advocacy group. But he spreads socialist and communist propaganda when going by...

    Alec Baldwin’s new talk show was abruptly “bumped” from its Sunday night schedule after dismal ratings this week; dropping to Saturday nights in December as ABC struggles to stem the flow of viewers. The Sunday night slot will be filled with repeat episodes of ‘Shark Tank.’ Baldwin made national headlines just days ago when he was arrested in New York City after allegedly assaulting another person.

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — Actor Alec Baldwin followed up his latest parody portrayal of President Donald Trump with a serious call Sunday night for voters to use the Nov. 6 midterm elections to peacefully "overthrow" the government. After reprising his role as Trump on "Saturday Night Live," Baldwin flew to New Hampshire, where he was the keynote speaker at the New Hampshire Democratic Party's annual fall fundraising dinner. "The way we implement change in America is through elections. We change governments here at home in an orderly and formal way," he said. "In that orderly and formal way and lawful way,...

    CBS News has obtained an invitation to a fundraiser for incumbent Sen. Tammy Baldwin, D-Wisconsin in Washington, D.C. on Monday, October 1, hosted by Brett Kavanaugh accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's attorneys, Debra Katz and Lisa Banks, along with liberal political action committee "End Citizens United." Ford's lawyers' remarks and statements on her behalf have largely been in line with those of Democrats on the Judiciary Committee. According to the Baldwin campaign, the event was scheduled before Ford's allegations against Kavanaugh were made public. Her lawyers, the campaign says, are no longer involved in the event. As of Thursday morning,...

    It’s no joke: Alec Baldwin at the last minute has dropped out of Todd Phillips’ The Joker movie at Warner Bros. In an interview with USA Today just days after taking the supporting role, the 30 Rock actor cited scheduling conflicts. Production begins September 10 for the DC title, and we hear that the talks went down to the five-yard line, given how close it is to cameras rolling. Warner Bros. had no comment. Baldwin was to play Thomas Wayne, Bruce Wayne’s father. “I’m sure there are 25 guys who can play that part,” the actor told USA Today, The...

    Baldwin is the latest high-profile actor to join the project, which is scheduled to begin shooting in two weeks. Robert De Niro, Deadpool 2 breakout Zazie Beetz and Glow actor Marc Maron are already on the call sheet. Phoenix is set to portray the DC Comics villain in a film that is more moderately budgeted and darker than the studio’s other DC-based movies that make up its shared universe. The project is also described as more of a dark character study than a crime thriller, with Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy as the tonal watchwords. Baldwin has been...

    MILWAUKEE — A new Marquette Law School Poll of Wisconsin voters finds a tight race for governor following last week’s statewide primary elections.

Only 2 percent say they lack a preference or do not lean to a candidate. Among likely voters in the race for the Wisconsin U.S. Senate seat on the ballot in November, 49 percent support the incumbent, Democrat Tammy Baldwin, and 47 percent support Republican...

    Actor Alec Baldwin has issued a political video for the Mic news site, urging supporters to protect Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of possible Russian collusion in the 2016 election. Baldwin, who frequently parodies President Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, did the video for Mic, a liberal web site, which billed it as “opinion. In the video, Baldwin claims the Mueller investigation is under fire and touts activism as the cure to stop it from being shut down. “We need your help to stop Trump,” says one of the images.

    Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) is among the crop of Democrats suddenly sparking outrage over the condition of immigration detention centers at the U.S.-Mexico border. Images of children placed in cages have been going viral. The problem is, the conditions are largely the same as they had been under President Obama. In fact, some of the photos being circulated look eerily similar to those taken in 2014. Baldwin was going on about the Trump White House's terrible policy on CNN, until Brooke Baldwin asked the senator if she was just as outraged during the Obama years. Not exactly, but she did...
