Alec Baldwin might be out at @MSNBC for things he didn't say on the air. However, Martin Bashir, for things said ON-AIR is apparently fine.—

Well, it took a little while, but it looks like the powers that be over at MSNBC finally had the sense to give Alec Baldwin the boot. Baldwin, if you’ll recall, recently landed himself in hot water after getting caught on camera calling a photographer a “cocksucking faggot” (or “fathead,” depending on who you believe). Also, he’s a total douchebag.
From Page Six:
The rage-aholic’s weekly show, “Up Late With Alec Baldwin,” has been canceled because of the actor’s foul-mouthed rant at a photographer he called a nasty name.
“The decision has been made. He’s gone,” an insider at the cable channel told me. “The [parent company] Comcast guys have decided. Word is spreading through the building.”
Baldwin’s dismissal was decided on partly because of his diva-like behavior toward co-workers, a source said.
Based on the reaction so far, it doesn’t sound like he’ll be missed all that much:
It’s all well and good that Baldwin’s gotten his, but you know which verbal sewage-spewer is still lurking at MSNBC?
A very good question, indeed.
