An endorsement from Alec Baldwin, the homophobic-rage-tweeting, hot-tempered celebrity who recently "parted ways" with MSNBC after just two months on air, is probably not helping the cause of Martin Bashir, who resigned from the television network on Wednesday after making offensive comments about Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
Baldwin, not one to withhold his opinion, defended his former colleague, who offended audiences when he suggested on his program that someone should defecate in Palin's mouth. Using his preferred medium of choice, Baldwin said that Bashir "created great television," and slammed MSNBC:
Baldwin and Bashir are the latest hosts to have been fired from cable news, joining the likes of Glenn Beck and Don Imus.
