Media Matters To Boycott MSNBC Over Alec Baldwin’s Slurs*

Alec-Baldwin

Alec-Baldwin

We at PFoL are happy to sign on to the petition to boycott MSNBC’s advertisers. As you’ve probably heard, Alec Baldwin – a late night MSNBC host – unleashed a homophobic slur-filled rant the other day on an unwitting photographer. The language is too racy to be repeated on this blog, but you can see for yourself here. It’s breathtaking that in this day and age the use of this kind of hate language is tolerated at MSNBC.

In response, Angelo Carusone, VP of Boycotts at MediaMatters.org, has started a “Drop Baldwin” campaign. It mirrors prior campaigns organized by Carusone and Media Matters against Rush Limbaugh’s advertisers. Only this time there’s video of Alec Baldwin using the outrageous comments and a stream of tweets defending the use of the slurs.

We welcome this opportunity to join our progressive friends on the other side of the political spectrum in denouncing this hate language and demand that MSNBC fire Alec Baldwin or face a boycott of its advertisers – which includes Media Matters enlisting citizens to harass said advertisers on social media and on the phone.

* – None of this has actually happened because Media Matters, and Carusone, are enormous hypocrites. FYI.

    You got me excited. Never been a fan of Media Matters, but this would have been the first thing I agreed with them on.

    The man just acted out of trying to protect his family. Life is too blessed to be stressed.

      Bwahahahaha!!! bet you would be the first to start blowing the homophobe horn if it was someone from Fox News. I got it now… You can say whatever you want as long as it’s to “protect” your family. We all make mistakes, but it seems to be a pattern with Mr. Baldwin.

        What you and rest of the Media doesn’t understand is the family just lost a family member and he obviously took his stress out on the media.
        My cousin who is Gay uses the word Fag. Matter of fact when he knows someone is coming over that he thinks may not be accepting of his life-style, he will go through and de-fag his house.
        I think straight people push the homophobia button more then gay people.
        It seems to me the more it upsets people about homophobia the more browinie points you score. Straight people seem to fear the sin of the forbidden fruit and gay people push the forbidden fruits on to society.
        OMG just stop making a mountains out of a molehills.
        Alec is acting like someone ready to have a heart attack. You get very very short tempered before a heart attack.
