Megan Kelly and Michelle Malkin took the media to task Monday during a Fox segment on double standards when comparing the treatment of liberals and conservatives. Actor Alec Baldwin made headlines again with his latest rant against a Daily Mail reporter, but the admonition subsided quickly when he apologized.
Malkin said that Baldwin’s “homophobic” Twitter “hate speech,” which included threats of harm to the reporter, was far worse than anything Rush Limbaugh had said on the radio. Limbaugh’s comments regarding Sandra Fluke last year created a media firestorm that prompted advertisers to abandon his program.
“And, of course, this is just part and parcel of this anger management candidate’s meltdowns, public meltdowns, over the years,” Malkin said of Baldwin. “It’s one thing for celebrities to go through their Hollywood bad boy stage, but this is a geezer. I mean we’re talking about the leader of the geriatric Hollywood brat pack who has now threatened reporters physically.”
Kelly said the gay equality group, GLAAD, took Baldwin’s apology “very quickly and said his words yesterday don’t match his history of actively supporting our community.”
“He gets a pass for any number of reasons,” Malkin said, “and one is being part of the Hollywood establishment.” She noted the double standard between Baldwin’s soft treatment compared to Paula Deen’s, who has been “vilified and crucified” for admitting using the n-word.
Kelly pointed out that no one seemed to care that Limbaugh has given “millions and millions” of dollars to charity, and still attack him over his comments.
“His charitable past didn’t seem to soften anyone’s assessment of him,” Kelly said.
