Alec Baldwin, Isaiah Washington and Don Imus.

Isaiah was wrong when he said what he said about his co-worker. It only made Isaiah seem like the bottom-feeding bigot.

Imus was just a danged fool for saying what he did about those dedicated, talented college athletes.

Should Imus have been fired for his remark? Not my call. I protest these things with retail votes - choosing to NOT buy from advertisers of shows like his.

Should Isaiah have had to go into a RESIDENTIAL REHAB "facility" for making a homophobic slur? Again, not my call. But if someone called me a redneck, I would be the joke and not them. And it would be quite OK to insult me in that way. (Being a redneck comes from living where I do and speaking with my particular drawl. see the comparison I'm NOT spelling out?) Isaiah almost lost his job over his poor judgment.

Alec Baldwin ranted at his DAUGHTER for missing his call. Are we going to let him get away with this? Is his job in jeopardy? Should he be allowed to parent without serious help in controlling his impulses and an increased understanding of the term ABUSE?

Vote with our dollars.

Stop watching 30Rock.

Stop watching all the dang Discovery Channel shows he narrates.

Stop buying the products that advertise with his voice-overs.

Pay attention.

A child deserves at LEAST equal support from us that the Rutgers women's basketball team and TR Knight got.

This is a child.

He is her father.

Shame on you, Alec.

Shame on us if he gets away with it.

I agree with you in some ways, but not in others. I think Alec Baldwin's parenting is none of our business, and it should never, never have gotten out, and his daughter is suffering from it being all over the news. And if she isn't suffering, she is gaining support in her disrespect of her father, which is why he was so mad in the first place. Noone parents a child, especially a teen, and does not blow it at some point. He has few options in dealing with her. He is trying to be with her, raise her, love her, she is being allowed and encouraged to toss him to the curb and be disrespectful and disobedient to him at a time in her life when this is an important time to learn to be respectful. If you learn as a teen to do and say what you want when you want, you will have a HARD time in life holding down a job and having a long lasting, loving respectful relationship.
She needed to be chewed out, but his choice of words was wrong. That is something that should have been taken up between parents, or lawyers, not the public.
I can't believe he even bothered to apologize to the public, its none of our business! We don't have a right to demand he apologize to his daughter, its family business.
