Alec Baldwin: Suspended MSNBC Show May Not Return

Alec Baldwin says that his MSNBC show may not come back after the network suspended him for berating a photographer with a gay slur.

"Whether the show comes back at all is at issue right now," Baldwin wrote in a blog post on Saturday, a day after the cable network shut down "Up Late" for two weeks on the heels of a video — published by TMZ — that showed Baldwin confronting photographers camped outside his apartment. "If the show dies, its fate ends up being no different than the vast majority of start-up TV programming, and so be it." 

In a statement published on the show's website Friday, Baldwin apologized for his "choice of words."

    Ha ha.

    Weren't all those "black lists" on communists in the 50s horrible?

    Now one word of blasphemy against Progressivism gets a Progressive leader purged and excommunicated.

    It's funny though, I have not heard a word of this outside of conservative/right leaning blogs/sites.

    Yet supposedly Sly Stallone used the N-word towards a paparazzi.
