Ian O'Doherty: Newsflash, gay people - Alec's not out to get you
Congratulations to the militant, media-based gay community for the great service they have just performed. In fact, I'd even go so far as to extend my congratulations to the Hollywood gay Jews -- to borrow a line from Larry Sanders -- involved in this case and say thanks for the mitzvah.
Because the gay lobby in America has successfully managed to have Alec Baldwin's new show axed from MSNBC.
Of course, the fact that his chat show was suffering from a paucity of guests and was haemorrhaging viewers to the point of anaemia didn't help, but once the reliably incendiary actor had a row with a reporter and called him a 'c**ksucker', the die was cast and this week Baldwin was unceremoniously defenestrated.
