Anderson CooperBackstory: Last year, a journalist claimed Baldwin’s wife Hilaria was tweeting during James Gandolfini’s funeral. Evidence later showed she wasn’t, and Baldwin went absolutely nuts on the reporter for saying it. In fact, he called him a ”toxic little queen” on Twitter, which didn’t sit too well with Anderson Cooper who had a field day about how the media jumps on noted Conservatives for homophobia but often gives Liberals a free pass. A few other members of the media argued the same thing, and that, coupled with other incidents, started a snowball effect that helped soil Baldwin’s reputation.
Quote: ”I flew to Hawaii recently to shoot a film, fresh on the heels of being labeled a homophobic bigot by Andrew Sullivan, Anderson Cooper, and others in the Gay Department of Justice. … (Much later in the same piece) In my rage, however, I called (a reporter) a “toxic little queen,” and, thus, Anderson Cooper, the self-appointed Jack Valenti of gay media culture, suggested I should be “vilified,” in his words.”
