The 12 people who watch his show hardest hit.
Alec Baldwin’s MSNBC show was pulled from the network’s schedule for two weeks on Friday following the actor’s latest homophobia scandal.
Baldwin was embroiled in controversy after he was caught on tape swearing at a photographer. Most people thought he called the man a “c–ksucking f–g”; Baldwin denied saying the latter word, but apologized for saying the former one.
MSNBC made no comment about the simmering scandal for days—something thatled to heated criticism. Other cable news hosts, such as Anderson Cooper, alsoattacked Baldwin for making the comments.
Baldwin is not the first MSNBC host to face a suspension for comments made outside the network. Most famously, Ed Schultz was yanked from the air for a week for calling talk show host Laura Ingraham a “slut.”
