Earlier, it was learned that Piers Morgan’s show on CNN will be going bye-bye, and in an article in New York Magazine, Alec Baldwin says he’s giving up public life and leaving New York City.

Briefest summary possible:
In the story, Baldwin said he loathes and despises the media (which must be why he granted a reporter a lengthy interview) and addressed previous controversies. Speaking of those controversies, Baldwin decided to keep digging:
Can we talk about Alec Baldwin's casual use of "tr*nny?" http://t.co/KYNdeRdKkq @chrisgeidner @ZackFord @theferocity pic.twitter.com/1CbOotBVIs

The seventh paragraph of Alec Baldwin's "I Give Up" cover story for @NYMag begins: "One young man, an F-to-M tranny"

Hey, Alec Baldwin, if you don't want people to think you're capable of homophobic slurs, maybe don't use the word "tranny" in your defense.

Because nothing says "I'm not a homophobic bigot" like using the word "tranny" http://t.co/Zy3zsZWLW4

Is Alec Baldwin seriously arguing he's not a homophobe in an article where he refers to someone as an 'F to M tranny'? Did I miss something?

Alec Baldwin's really owning the Team America puppet version of himself at this point.

Claiming he’s leaving New York City, Baldwin said he’ll move somewhere much quieter: Los Angeles:
Wait, so moving to LA will give him MORE privacy? #buhbye http://t.co/8PZyIyt6Eq

In the interview, Baldwin complained about TMZ photographers. Moving 2,800 miles closer to TMZ headquarters should really help distance himself from them.
Baldwin believes part of his problem is over scrutiny from the “Gay Department of Justice”:
"…Andrew Sullivan, Anderson Cooper, and others in the Gay Department of Justice." Holy shit! http://t.co/edHbSvWlBy

"Gay Department of Justice," "F to M tranny"…like, even Alec Baldwin's departure from public life is as offensive as possible

Can someone take the shovel from Alec Baldwin's hands? The hole he has dug is already deep enough. Kthxbai

Baldwin and Morgan fading off into the sunset on the same day was good enough for a toast:
Alec Baldwin, Piers Morgan… it's a good day to be on the Right.

"@bitingtea: Wait, we got rid of Alec Baldwin and Piers Morgan in one day?" I just know I'm going to wake up any moment now. #Pinch

Place your bets:
which is more likely: Alec Baldwin keeps pledge to never talk personal life again, or Alec Baldwin never assaults a photographer again?
