Gothamist says today that, despite yesterdays damning New York Post story that claimed to have witnesses, audio, and video evidence of Alec Baldwin threatening a female reporter and calling a black photographer a “coon” among other things, the Post has yet to produce any of this evidence and a source who has heard the Baldwin audio says “there is NO mention of a racial slur on the tape.”
The Post has yet to produce the audio they claim proves Baldwin slung the racial slurs, and yesterday, when we spoke to Baldwin again, he told us, “I am fascinated that the Post seems to have cameras everywhere… and handheld still cameras that have a video capacity—most paparazzi I know can shoot both with the same camera. And here we have a young woman there with a microphone and a camera, and they seem to have the capacity to record everything, and they can’t seem to produce an example of me saying a racial epithet.”
So, either the Post is lying to a shocking degree (would not be the first time, btw), or the person who heard the audio and said “there is NO mention of a racial slur on the tape” was Quentin Tarantino. “I mean, Baldwin did say ‘n****r’ a few dozen times, but I didn’t pick up on any racial inferences.”

Alec Baldwin grabbed a female NY Post reporter by her arm, reportedly said, “I want to choke you to death”, then called a black photographer a “coon”, a “crackhead” and “a drug dealer” (though to be fair about that last part, many people in this economy do work more than one job).
Baldwin was asked for comment on a lawsuit against his wife, Hilaria, involving her work as a yoga instructor.
(He) grabbed the reporter, Tara Palmeri, by her arm and told her, “I want you to choke to death,” Palmeri told police, for whom she played an audiotape of the conversation.
He then called G.N. Miller — a decorated retired detective with the NYPD’s Organized Crime Control Bureau and a staff photographer for The Post — a “coon, a drug dealer.’’
At one point, Miller showed Baldwin ID to prove he’s a retired NYPD cop, which Baldwin dismissed as “fake.”
Cops were called, and Miller, 56, and Baldwin, 54, both filed harassment claims against each other.
Of course this all comes from the Post, this is their version of events, so take away the independent witnesses, and the audio and video evidence of him doing these things, and it’s really just their word against his.

Alec Baldwin got married on Saturday to one of the girls with him in these pictures, hopefully the brunette in the middle (28-year-old yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas) because the super tall blond is his 16-year-old daughter from his marriage to Kim Bassinger, Ireland Baldwin.
Ireland joined Alec and his new wife for lunch in New York yesterday, and that thoughtless little pig didn’t even bother to do her hair or put on a nice outfit. She should probably skip any new voice mails from dad for the next few days.

It’s hard to look tough with a stuffed rainbow dog (bear?) under your arm, but Alec Baldwin tried it anyway in New York today during another confrontation with the paparazzi (video here). You can’t buy this kind of publicity, David Letterman.
(Baldwin) approached one of the photogs who was hanging out in front of his apartment building and lashed out, “I want you to shut the f**k up … leave my neighbor alone … get outta here.”
A source connected with Alec Baldwin tells TMZ … the photog had confrontations with other residents in the building before the incident with Alec.
The source also says … when one resident asked the photog to stop “harassing everyone,” the photog told the person, “f**k you.”
There’s no way to know who to blame in a situation like this, until you see the photographer. I blame him. You can just tell he’s a mouthy little douche who instigated this whole thing and probably deserved to get punched. The people who say “violence never solves anything” don’t know this guy, because if they did they would solve him right in the face with a bat.

Alec Baldwin went and got a marriage license this morning in New York, then punched a photographer for the New York Daily News in the face. Because now someone might deduce that he’s getting married, and otherwise that would have stayed a secret for a thousand years.
Santos (the photographer) was standing innocently with two other photographers when Baldwin, 54, approached with an angry glare.
“He was looking mad,” said Santos. “He said, ‘Step back, step back.’ I said, ‘We’re moving back.’”
Baldwin then grabbed a second News photographer, Jefferson Siegel, and Santos told (Baldwin) to back off.
“He comes after me, starts shoving and punching me — one time, right in the chin. And then he started shoving me, and pushing me. Then he goes the other way.”
And straight to twitter…
An unrepentant Baldwin presented his version of the clash, via Twitter: “A ‘photographer’ almost hit me in the face with his camera this morning. #allpaparazzishouldbewaterboarded”
I’m not sure celebrities really understand how hashtagging works.
