Topic - Baldwin'S "Up Late
Shortly after MSNBC announced it was suspending Alec Baldwin's "Up Late" for two weeks, the actor took to his blog on The Huffington Post to explain that he's not positive the show will be back at all.
"Two requests," he said. "Don't allow my problem to be MSNBC's problem. They are good people who work hard at a job, just like many of you. And two, please respect the privacy of my wife and family. If you have an opinion of me, then express it. Think what you like. But I ask that my wife, who I care about more than words can say, and both my children, be left out of this."
"I have been a fan of MSNBC for some time," he said. "Its left-leaning tone never bothered me. I still believe that they are more enamored of and devoted to the truth in any single hour than Fox is all year long. I think Rachel Maddow is perhaps the single most important television journalist on the air today. And if my show does disappear, I will be grateful in so far as her good work, along with that of O'Donnell and Hayes and Sharpton and Matthews and Jansing, will not be sullied by my problem."
