GAY ACTIVISTS “KILLED MY SHOW,” BALDWIN BARKS

MSNBC, which suspended Alec Baldwin’s shortlived — and low rated — interview show Up Late for two weeks after the actor had been caught on camera berating a reporter in an outburst that included an anti-gay slur, has now canceled the program after Baldwin lashed out at a photographer with another anti-gay slur. “We are jointly confirming that Up Late will not continue on MSNBC,” Baldwin and MSNBC said in a joint statement. Later, however, in an interview with Gothamist.com, Baldwin lashed out at “the fundamentalist wing of gay advocacy,” in particular gay blogger Andrew Sullivan and GLAAD spokesman Rich Ferraro. “Rich Ferraro, this is probably one of his greatest triumphs. They killed my show. And I have to take some responsibility for that myself,” he said.
