Morning Media Mix

New York magazine coverAlec Baldwin caused quite a splash with a New York mag cover story, which went up last night. The actor said he is done with public life and explained why his MSNBC show failed, why New York is different now, why he lashed out at paparazzi, why he isn’t really a homophobe and basically anything else he has thought about over the past year. And while he understands the irony of ranting about the media in a magazine, he says “this the last time he’s going to talk about his personal life in an American publication ever again.” Out with a bang, we guess. (New York)
