Anderson Cooper: Why Does Alec Baldwin Get A Pass Using Gay Slurs? A Conservative Would Be Vilified - Fox Nation

Aside from Fox, I haven't seen this in the MSM. Did I miss it? Was it reported by the MSM? If not, is it true? Is it a lie made up by Fox, or did AB and AC actually say those things? If AC really said that, is he right? Is AB getting a pass for being liberal?
Not getting a pass. He is being talked about everywhere. His show can't be canceled cause it just ended last season.

Why does anyone care what Baldwin says? Are the gays just that sensitive that they dont allow for the 1st Amendment to be exercised ?

Seems that strait people are the ones who want Baldwin punished most.

Sure, the gays are the new power brokers. Their biggest hero Harvey Milk was a pedophile and no one dare remind them of that.
That made no sense at all. Like you aren't even speaking English.

It all started with Paula Deen. LOL!

It's the new wave.

Word nazi's.

That freedom of speech sure can cost a fella a lot of money.

He's been given crap for his rants before. The homosexual references, no. Yes, conservatives would be vilified if they did it, as they do it. So yes, there is a double standard at work. I would also say it is likely a problem of how many of these stories per week or per month they can have without its punch losing strength.

There is a double standard. Libs can call you a nigger, a faggot or anything else they want and they get a pass. Just the way it is.
If he were conservative, you all would be rushing to defend his freedom of speech from the PC police.

The First Amendment only keeps the government from doing things. Private citizens are still allowed to exercise their freedom by giving someone ****.

We know that there's plenty of hypocrisy on both sides, but this thread is about bias in the MSM. Since media bias is a non-issue for you, why do you even come to this sub-forum? Is hijacking threads what you're all about?

There's obviously a double standard. No biggie. This shouldn't shock anyone with a triple digit IQ.

Acknowledge it and move on.

Oh, please. :roll:
Certainly that is the case. The Dean defenders want to make a case for double standards and are having fits.

Baldwin has been a ridiculous drunk saying stupid stuff for years. He has lost jobs over it. Time passes people forget. Mel Gibson is working again and Dean will too.

Fox is part of the mainstream media. So if they reported it, yes, it was reported by the mainstream media.

It's a non-issue because the media is exactly how it always has been, and how it was guaranteed to be by the First Amendment. If the thread is about anything, it's supposed to be about what Anderson Cooper - supposedly some kind of King Libbo at CNN - tweeted about Baldwin.

Media corporations are, like all corporations, biased toward making money. If being more conservative or more "balanced" made them more money, you bet they'd be that way. Paula Deen and Alec Baldwin are both creations of the media. They made these people, and they can take down whoever they want to. It's not a Liberal/Conservative thing. If Paula Deen were raking in the ad dollars, they'd be defending her. It's an excuse to cut some dead wood. The next thing Baldwin does is probably going to make them money, so they don't want to take him down and lose out on what they'll be able to milk him for.

According to your logic, Fox and MSNBC have the same bias.
