latest news at page 1:
    Actor Alec Baldwin chased after a reporter questioning him in New York City on Monday night, just days after his primetime interview with George Stephanopoulos. The encounter allegedly occurred in New York’s Upper East Side when a New York Post reporter approached Baldwin as he entered a private residence. “Wait, Mr. Baldwin, I have to ask you, what brings you to New York City,” Levine asked Baldwin as his wife, Hilaria, pleaded with him to go away. “Mr. Baldwin why…. who’s here?” Baldwin then turned around and charged Levine while wielding an umbrella. Hilaria held him back.

    Alec Baldwin and his wife aren't letting the "Rust" shooting scandal get in the way of their holiday season. In the months since Baldwin, 63, was holding a gun that was discharged on the movie set resulting in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, he and his wife Hilaria have been open about struggling through the tough time, and have not been shy in showing off their PDA. They continued the later trend on Instagram on Monday, when Hilaria, 37, shared a photo of her actor husband planting a kiss on her under a sprig of mistletoe. "'Tis the season," she captioned the photo, adding a Christmas tree emoji for effect.

    Alec Baldwin is preparing for his first public appearance since the shooting on the set of his movie "Rust." The actor has been spotted out-and-about on a number of occasions since the fatal shooting, and he even did a tell-all interview with George Stephanopoulos, but he has not yet been seen at any public events or red carpets. That will change on Thursday, Dec. 9, as Baldwin will serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the 2021 Ripple of Hope Award event, put together by the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights organization in New York. Per the event's website, the award has historically honored "exemplary leaders across the international business, entertainment, and activist communities who have demonstrated a commitment to social change and reflect Robert Kennedy’s passion for equality, justice, basic human rights, and his belief that each of us can make a difference."

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Actor Alec Baldwin over the weekend deleted his Twitter account in the wake of his emotional and controversial interview on the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico set of the film “Rust.” Both Baldwin and his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, deleted their accounts sometime Sunday. Baldwin’s interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos ran Thursday night. On the afternoon of Oct. 21, on the set of the Western “Rust” just outside Santa Fe, a single live round from a Pietta Colt .45 revolver fired by Baldwin struck and killed 42-year-old Hutchins, and wounded the film’s director, 48-year-old Joel Souza. “Well the trigger wasn’t pulled, I didn’t pull the trigger,” Baldwin told Stephanopoulos. “I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger, never,” Baldwin said. Baldwin also alleges he has “no idea” how the live bullet got on the set. “Someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn’t supposed to be on the property,” Baldwin said. The 63-year-old Baldwin was inside a church building, sitting on a wooden...
    The attorney for Serge Svetnoy, the head electrician/gaffer of the movie "Rust," has slammed Alec Baldwin’s "misguided" tell-all. The actor spoke out in a televised interview Thursday night. He answered questions about the Oct. 21 shooting on the set of his Western film "Rust" where he fatally shot cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injured director Joel Souza. Svetnoy previously confirmed he was standing next to Hutchins when she was shot and held her as she died on the New Mexico movie set. "There are two ways to fire a gun, pull the trigger or pull the hammer back and drop it, thus Alec Baldwin has conclusively admitted he pointed the gun at Halyna Hutchins and fired the fatal shot," attorney Gary A. Dordick wrote to Fox News on Monday.

    Actor Alec Baldwin deleted his Twitter account after the district attorney said he could still face criminal charges over the shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, which immediately followed his sit-down interview with George Stephanopoulos. Though Alec Baldwin has two official Twitter accounts, the main account that he used to communicate mysteriously went offline over the weekend while the other @AlecBaldwl has remained inactive since October 19, before which it remained inactive since June. Baldwin famously issued his first statements from the Twitter account shortly after the tragic shooting. “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours,” he tweeted. “I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.” Alec Baldwin moments after her shot Halyna Hutchins, cinematographer on “Rust,” and director Joel Souza.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) – Actor Alec Baldwin claims he did not pull the trigger on the gun that was used to kill cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the New Mexico set of the movie “Rust.” Alec Baldwin speaks for the first time on Oct. 30, 2021, in Manchester, Vt., regarding the shooting that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, and wounded director Joel Souza on the set of the film “Rust.” (Getty Images) “Well the trigger wasn’t pulled, I didn’t pull the trigger,” Baldwin told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos from a clip of an interview that will run in full Thursday. “I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger, never,” Baldwin said.

    Alec Baldwin has deleted one of his two Twitter accounts following his tell-all interview with George Stephanopoulos about the shooting incident that took place on the set of the movie "Rust."  The actor had two verified Twitter accounts, one of which he was much more active on and was the one he used to previously issue statements about the fatal shooting incident that took place on the set of the indie-western movie in October. However, following his interview last week, it seems the star has completely deleted the account labeled @AlecBaldwin. However, his account @AlecBaldwln____ remains live with the latest tweet being from October 19. Prior to that, it was only active in June.  It’s unclear why the actor chose this time to delete the account. Representatives for Baldwin did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

    Alec Baldwin claimed that he fired the revolver that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins without pulling the trigger during a recent tell-all interview. "I let go of the hammer of the gun," Baldwin told ABC's George Stephanopoulos during the interview. "And the gun goes off." Alec Baldwin revealed the revolver he was holding on the set of "Rust" fired after he pulled the hammer of the gun back and released it. (Photo by Jeff Neira/ABC via Getty Images) Weapons armorer Bryan W. Carpenter told Fox News Digital that pulling the hammer back and releasing it, causing the gun to fire, is still considered a "negligent discharge." "You have to cock the hammer, you have to pull the trigger, or you have to cock the hammer and let it fly forward, one of the two things, which requires an operator to do it," Carpenter explained. "And if an operator is doing it, then they're in control of the weapon. And if they're cocking the hammer, they're in the two-part process of firing it. And if they slip and let the hammer...
    During his sit-down interview with George Stephanopoulos this past Thursday, actor Alec Baldwin said it is “highly unlikely” he will face criminal charges over the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins; the district attorney, however, has not ruled those charges out. “I’ve spoken to the sheriff’s department multiple times,” Baldwin said. “I don’t have anything to hide.” Watch below:  Asked by @GStephanopoulos if he worries about being criminally charged, Alec Baldwin says: "I dont. Ive been told by people who are in the know…that its highly unlikely that I would be charged with anything criminally."

Carmack-Altwies asserted that she will “exercise my prosecutorial discretion to its fullest, including filing charges that are supported by probable cause.” The district attorney further clarified that “everyone”...
    Alec Baldwin delivers a speech during the World Climate Change Conference in 2015 . In an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that aired Thursday, actor Alec Baldwin said he’s speaking out to clear up what he calls “misconceptions” around the tragic and accidental shooting death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Rust. He denied that he pulled the trigger, and therefore doesn’t believe he was “responsible” for her death.  Baldwin was often teary during the interview. He said that if he could change what happened on the day of the shooting, he would have, adding that he and Hutchins shared one thing in common—a belief that the gun was empty.  Baldwin was quick to say he didn’t want his hour-long interview to come off as if he were the victim. “Because we have two victims here,” referring to Hutchins and director Joel Souza, who was injured by the same bullet. According to reports, on Oct. 21, the crew was preparing for a shootout scene inside a church when the assistant director, Dave Halls, passed Baldwin a Colt .45 and said “cold gun,” indicating the gun wasn’t loaded...
    Before Alec Baldwin’s Thursday night interview with George Stephanopoulos (D-ABC), I expressed my skepticism at the actor’s claim he did not pull the trigger on the gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and wounded director Joel Souza. Now that I’ve seen the full interview, I have even more questions. Baldwin’s full interview with Stephanopoulos is the first time he’s spoken publicly about what happened, including why he pointed the gun at Hutchins. Here’s how he explained everything… “[Hutchins is] guiding me through how she wants me to hold the gun for this angle,” Baldwin said. “I’m holding the gun where she told me to hold it, which ended up being aimed right below her armpit.” “So, I take the gun, and I start to cock the gun. I’m not going to pull the trigger,” he added. “And I cock the gun; I go, ‘Can you see that? Can you see that? Can you see that?’ And then I let go of the hammer of the gun, and the gun goes off.’ “I let go of the hammer of the gun...
    By Sam Hoober Alec Baldwin almost certainly pulled the trigger, resulting in the gunshot that killed Halyna Hutchins. It’s true that fault in this case would appear to lie with multiple people; we can debate how much is his later. WATCH:   He says that he didn’t. There is a narrow set of circumstances in which it’s plausible he didn’t, but it would be very rare indeed for it to be possible and that has to do with how a single-action pistol works. It’s more likely that he doesn’t remember that he did, or doesn’t believe he did as a defense mechanism. Disagree all you want, but the stuff they cover in Pysch 101 tends to explain a heck of a lot of human behavior pretty well. Single-action operating mechanisms for firearms are actually the most common, and don’t think for a minute that changing hammer-based mechanisms for striker-based mechanisms meant that single-action pistols were a thing of the past. In fact, some of the most common striker-fired pistols are actually single-action; it’s just that most people hear or...

    The Santa Fe District Attorney investigating the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of Alec Baldwin's Western movie Rust said neither the actor nor anyone else who was on set is clear of potential criminal charges until the probe concludes.  DA Mary Carmack-Altwies appeared to be responding to Baldwin's claim during his 90-minute interview with ABC this week that he was unlikely to face any charges and that he supposedly never pulled the trigger on the gun that went off in his hands, killing Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.  In a statement released on Friday, Carmack-Altwies maintained that 'certain individuals may be criminally culpable for his/her actions and/or inactions on the set of Rust.' She also vowed to use her 'prosecutorial discretion to its fullest, including filing charges that are supported by probable cause.'  'Everyone involved in the handling and use of firearms on the set had a duty to behave in a manner such that the safety of others was protected, and it appears that certain actions and inactions contributed to this outcome,' Carmack-Altwies said....
    Santa Fe County District Attorney Mary Carmack-Altwies countered actor Alec Baldwin's claim that he's in the clear with respect to criminal charges over his involvement in the deadly shooting on the set of "Rust." Baldwin made the claim during his first sit-down interview about what happened before a revolver fired, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza.  The actor said he'd been in touch with people who assured him it was "highly unlikely" he would face criminal charges. But Carmack-Altwies says no one who handled guns on the movie set has been cleared of criminal culpability.

    Alec Baldwin's wife Hilaria on Friday night lamented that her husband's involvement in the shooting death of a cinematographer on set meant she had 'lost my voice in this giant cyclone', vowing that she would not let the tragedy affect them or their relationship. In a gushing tribute to her husband - which critics immediately seized on as insensitive - Hilaria, 37, provided a deeply personal account of how the October 21 tragedy had affected her. 'I lost my voice in this giant cyclone of modern day media, social and 'news',' she wrote in Instagram.  'I stopped speaking because of fear. You always encourage me to speak, use my voice, stay true. You were right and continue to inspire me.'

    Halyna Hutchins is dead, her husband and 9-year-old son are grieving and others from the production of “Rust” have been left traumatized by Alec Baldwin fatally shooting the cinematographer during a rehearsal for a gunfight scene for the Western film. But one thing that seems to matter to Alec and Hilaria Baldwin, and to their cadre of celebrity friends, is that the controversial couple and a very public, crafted love story about their commitment to each other amid the tragedy of a woman’s death. On social media, Alec and Hilaria Baldwin have posted extraordinary love notes to each other, in which they declare that they remain united in their devotion, even amid “the agony,” which they see as largely fueled by the  critics and “gossips” who don’t value them as caring, authentic but “messy” people. The notes, posted Thursday night and Friday, follow Baldwin’s hour-long interview with ABC News, during which he was both tearful and defiant as he categorically denied any responsibility or feelings of “guilt” in Hutchins’ Oct. 21 death. In his social media note, the 63-year-old “30...
    Alec Baldwin has a strong supporter in his wife Hilaria. Since the Oct. 21 shooting on the set of the actor's film "Rust," Hilaria has been an outspoken supporter of her husband despite intense media attention and scrutiny. On Thursday night, Baldwin, 63, addressed the shooting — which resulted in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins — in a tell-all interview with George Stephanopoulos in which the actor said he may have taken his own life if he felt he were responsible for the ordeal. On Friday, Hilaria took to Instagram to share a photo of herself and her husband embracing and kissing, gushing over the "30 Rock" actor in the caption. CELEBRITIES RALLY AROUND ALEC BALDWIN WHILE THE PUBLIC CRITICIZES HIM FOLLOWING TELL-ALL 'RUST' INTERVIEW "'I am here, I love you, and I will take care of you.'

    Alec Baldwin did himself no favors with his recent tell-all interview about the "Rust" shooting tragedy, according to crisis mitigation experts. On Thursday, the "30 Rock" actor vehemently denied ever "pulling the trigger" of the revolver that fired a live projectile into cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, killing her, while also striking director Joel Souza and wounding the filmmaker in the process. "I let go of the hammer of the gun," Baldwin recounted to ABC's George Stephanopoulos. "And the gun goes off." Baldwin and Hutchins had been setting up for a shot where the actor was supposed to draw the gun and point it at the camera. While standing next to the camera, the cinematographer was "guiding" Baldwin on where to point the gun, he said.  "The gun wasn't meant to be fired in that angle," he confirmed.

    Celebrities showed their support for actor Alec Baldwin after he did his first sit-down interview about what happened during the fatal shooting that left cinematographer Halyna Hutchins dead and director Joel Souza injured. Baldwin described to viewers what happened the day he fatally shot Hutchins on the set of "Rust," from the moment he says he "let go of the hammer" and the gun went off to his interview with police at the station afterward.  Following the interview, Baldwin shared a post on social media saying his life with his family is all he cares about. "No matter what happens to me. No matter what I suffer. If I win or lose, anything. Anything. No one can take away from me the joy and love you have given me, @hilariabaldwin," Baldwin began his post. "These are tough times. The world is choked with fumes of hate. But you have given me a reason to live. Our life with our family is all I care about. Nothing else. I owe that to you." ALEC BALDWIN SLAMMED FOR ‘RUST’ TELL-ALL INTERVIEW: ‘A...
    I, like everyone else, have been horrified by the accidental shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins by actor Alec Baldwin on the set of the movie 'Rust' ever since I heard the news in October. When I saw the trailer for Alec's first one-on-one interview with ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos, I had the same reaction that CNN journalist Andrew Kaczynski had. He tweeted 'I know it's TV, an industry in which I work, but I find something unseemly about this big promo/hoopla with graphics and dramatic sounds to talk about a woman's tragic death'. The dramatic trailer showcased itself more like a teaser for an upcoming fictional television show than of a famous actor's first sitdown amid a still-pending investigation into the tragic death of an innocent woman. It read tonally distasteful and a bit confusing. Last night, I sat down to watch the entire interview between George and Alec and not much of my opinion has changed. The dramatic trailer for Alec Baldwin's ABC News interview with George Stephanopoulos showcased itself more like a teaser for an upcoming fictional...
    A VETERAN prop master has called "bulls**t" on Alec Baldwin's claims that he didn't pull the trigger of the gun that fired a live round on the set of Rust, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Speaking exclusively to The Sun, Bill Davis, a retired cop who has worked on more than 300 movies and TV shows, disputed the chain of events outlined by the actor during an interview with ABC on Thursday. 8Baldwin sat down with ABC 20/20 on Thursday for his first interview since the fatal shootingCredit: ABC News 8Halyna Hutchins, 41, died after suffering a single gunshot wound to the chestCredit: Supplied as a technical service.

The 63-year-old, who became emotional discussing the 42-year-old, said he feels incredible sadness and regret over the shooting on the New Mexico film set, but not guilt. "Someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who that was, but it’s not me," Baldwin told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

    THE DAILY NEWSLETTER – FRIDAY, DECEMBER 3, 2021 MEDIA WINNER: Donie O’Sullivan During an appearance on Thursday on Anderson Cooper 360, CNN correspondent Donie O’Sullivan discussed his reporting that found multiple examples of Facebook selling anti-vaccine ads, including some comparing the vaccine to the Holocaust. One ad from a group called “Ride the Red Wave” features a sweater that reads “I’m officially from America but currently reside in 1941 Germany.” The Holocaust started that year. Another pic from the group shows a t-shirt with a picture of an injection needle that reads “Slowly and quietly” above the needle and “But it’s a Holocaust” below it. O’Sullivan told host Anderson Cooper that Facebook was unaware of the ads until CNN flagged them for the social media network. However, CNN “found these ads very, very easily,” and, O’Sullivan argued, “a trillion-dollar company” like Facebook, with their resources “should be able to find the stuff themselves.” Facebook has been under increasing scrutiny not just for the content they allow on their platform, but for the way they often derive higher profits from...
    Actor Alec Baldwin told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos that he cocked the gun that fatally shot the cinematographer for his unfinished film Rust — but insisted that he did not pull the trigger. Halyna Hutchins was killed and director Joel Souza was wounded in the October 21, 2021, shooting incident. The first part of Stephanopoulos’ interview with Baldwin aired Thursday, and a new preview clip aired Friday morning on Good Morning America. USA Today quoted Baldwin recounting the fatal moment. Baldwin said, “I’m holding the gun where she [Hutchins] told me to hold it.” He added, “In the scene [being rehearsed] I would have cocked the gun, and I said, ‘Do you want to see that? And she said yes. So I take the gun and I sort of cock the gun, I’m not going to pull the trigger.” Baldwin said that Hutchins then had him adjust the angle at which he was holding the revolver. He then told Stephanopoulos, “I cock the gun and I go, ‘Can you see that? Can you see that? Can you see that?’ And I let go of the hammer...
    In Alec Baldwin's first TV interview since the fatal "Rust" shooting, he addressed comments made by fellow actor George Clooney about gun safety on movie sets. The 63-year-old actor told George Stephanopoulos that any outside comments made were not going to help the situation.  "How do you respond to actors like George Clooney who say that every time they were handed a gun, they checked it themselves?" the news anchor asked.  "Well, there were a lot of people who felt it necessary to contribute some comment to the situation, which really didn't help the situation," Baldwin said. "At all." ALEC BALDWIN 'RUST' SHOOTING INTERVIEW: FIVE MOST SHOCKING REVELATIONS "If your protocol is you check the gun every time, well, good for you. I've probably handled weapons as much as any other actor in films with an average career. Again, shooting or being shot by someone," he continued. "And in that time, I had a protocol and it never let me down." George Stephanopoulos had the first exclusive interview with actor Alec Baldwin, following the deadly shooting on the set...
    Actor Dean Cain joined "Fox & Friends" to discuss Alec Baldwin's first interview since the shooting on the set of ‘Rust’ that resulted in Halyna Hutchins' death. Cain said there was "without a doubt" negligence on set and questioned how Baldwin could say he feels no guilt, even if it was an accident.  ALEC BALDWIN ‘RUST’ SHOOTING INTERVIEW: FIVE MOST SHOCKING REVELATIONS DEAN CAIN: I'm still trying to figure out why he did the interview. I think he's just trying to get ahead of the narrative here and go, 'Look, you know, here's the here's what it is' and maybe get the court of public opinion on his side. But you know, he violated – there was negligence here all the way through. Halyna Hutchins lost her life, and it was because of negligence. Now, his response or his reason why he did it – pulling back the hammer – if he's using a single action weapon and he pulls back the hammer and lets it go, that's the same as pulling the trigger. Anybody who has any knowledge of...
    The co-hosts of The View offered a strong defense of Alec Baldwin after his exclusive ABC News interview with George Stephanopolous, in which he discussed the exact moment he accidentally shot dead cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the movie “Rust.” “I don’t think he’ll be found criminally responsible, but any lawsuit they’re going to play this video. I got the tell you, I saw empathy, I saw remorse, I saw, you know, sympathy,” said co-host Sunny Hostin of the interview which aired Thursday night. “Depression?” Interjected co-host Joy Behar. “I saw depression,” Hostin continued. “He said he would have killed himself had he felt guilty about this. I thought it was a good thing [the interview] for him to do actually despite the critics who are saying otherwise.” Hostin continued by arguing she believed someone put the bullet in the gun, which should not have been there.

    Alec Baldwin, tearful but also defiant in his interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, said he is haunted by being the person holding the gun that killed cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of his Western film “Rust,” but doesn’t feel guilt about it. The 63-year-old film and TV star set off a fierce debate on social media about concepts of grief, remorse, personal responsibility and legal culpability when he told Stephanopoulos he didn’t feel any “guilt” for his role in Hutchins’ death. “Someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me,” Baldwin said. “I mean, honest to God, if I felt that I was responsible, I might have killed myself if I thought I was responsible. And I don’t say that lightly.” .@GStephanopoulos: "Do you feel guilt?"

    Lisa Torraco, an attorney representing Halls, previously said it was not her client's responsibility to check the weapon for live ammunition and did not confirm whether Halls presented the gun to Baldwin. "Whether or not he handed the firearm directly to Alec Baldwin at that moment or whether the armorer handed it directly to Alec Baldwin at that moment doesn't really matter because he didn't load it," Torraco said last month. "He's not responsible for checking it." "What I can tell you is that expecting an assistant director to check a firearm is like telling the assistant director to check the camera angle or telling the assistant director to check sound or lighting," Torraco added. "That’s not the assistant director’s job. If he chooses to check the firearm because he wants to make sure that everyone is safe, he can do that." Baldwin asserts that he was taking directions from Hutchins. "This was a marking rehearsal," Baldwin told host George Stephanopoulos. "And [Hutchins] says to me, 'Hold the gun lower. Go to your right. OK, right there. All...
    Alec Baldwin sat down for his first interview since Rust cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was fatally shot on set, in which he hit back at Donald Trump for suggesting the actor could have loaded the gun himself. ABC News’ George Stephanopoulus asked the actor and producer about Trump’s comments during the highly emotional interview, noting that some blame Baldwin for Hutchins’ death. “He’s a troubled guy. There’s something wrong with him. I’ve watched him for years. He gets into fistfights with reporters,” Trump said last month.  “He’s a cuckoo-bird. He’s a nutjob. And usually, when there’s somebody like that, you know, in my opinion, he had something to do with it.” Baldwin was visibly shocked that Trump implied he had fired the gun “deliberately,” adding, “Just when you think things can’t get any more surreal, here’s the president of the United States making a comment on this tragic situation.” Stephanopoulus also addressed criticism George Clooney launched at Baldwin last month, asking, “How do you respond to actors like George Clooney who say that every time they were handed a gun, they checked it themselves?” While speaking to Marc...
    The Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider has called “bullshit” on fellow actor Alec Baldwin’s teary interview on ABC, alleging there was no way he “didn’t pull the trigger” on the set of the movie Rust, resulting in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. In an 18-minute YouTube video titled “Seriously Alec?,” John Schneider said Thursday’s interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos was “all designed to make us feel sorry for Alec Baldwin.” He also claimed the actor’s tears during the sit-down interview were “bullshit.” Watch below: “George Stephanopoulos is the poster boy for leftist propaganda, so why in the world anyone would look at an interview with George as being anything enlightening or having a modicum of truth, I don’t know,” Schneider said. “This all designed to make us feel sorry for Alec Baldwin.” Later in the video, Schneider addressed Baldwin’s claim that he never pulled the trigger. “Are we to believe that a gun went off by itself?” Schneider asked.  “Are we to believe that somehow, magically in the first part of your teary-eyed nonsensical journalism, that Alec didn’t pull...
    Legal experts believe Alec Baldwin should have given his televised interview a second thought before speaking out. On Thursday night, the actor gave his first sit-down since the Oct. 21 shooting on the set of the Western film "Rust." The 63-year-old told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that he did not pull the trigger on a prop gun he was holding on a New Mexico film set when it went off, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. Authorities have said Baldwin was told the gun was safe to handle but continue to investigate how a live round ended up in the weapon. Rachel Fiset, the managing partner of Los Angeles-based Zweiback, Fiset & Coleman, told Fox News that while Baldwin felt it was necessary to speak out following the tragedy in a public format, his comments about the active investigation could potentially be used against him.

      Alec Baldwin said in an emotional interview that aired on Thursday night that he did not feel responsible for accidentally discharging a prop gun on Thursday on the movie set of Rust, killing cinematographer Halyna Hutchins and injuring director Joel Souza. The ABC News interview with George Stephanopoulos was Baldwin’s first since the October incident. He said he sat for the interview to dispel misperceptions about the matter. “Someone is responsible for what happened and I can’t say who that is but I know it’s not me,” said the actor in response to Stephanopoulos asking him whether he felt responsible for what happened. “Honest to God, if I felt that I was responsible, I might have killed myself,” continued Baldwin. “If I thought I was responsible, and I don’t say that lightly.” Also during the interview, Baldwin said, “The trigger wasn’t pulled.

    Mika Brzezinski had a harsh reaction to ABC’s production of the Alex Baldwin interview with George Stephanopoulos, calling out the use of dramatic music and saying it was “cringeworthy.” “I am highly uncomfortable with this, it just seems highly brutal to watch on a number of levels,” Brzezinski said coming out of a clip of Baldwin, before pivoting to the reasoning behind the interview itself. “I can imagine his family is being hounded by the press and I can understand the need to set the record straight when the Twittersphere or, whatever the media out there in Google land is coming after you and they have a narrative that does not reflect your own personal experience, I can understand how that must be frustrating,” she said. “But I still don’t understand why put this all out there now given the level of severity and many different angles legally that this is under investigation,” she continued, before calling out to the production, or specifically the post-production, of the special. “But just the music and the producing of it — which is...
    Fox & Friends debated whether or not Alec Baldwin’s raw emotions on display during a Thursday night interview describing the deadly shooting of a cinematographer was real, or just pretend. Baldwin sat down with George Stephanopoulos for a special that aired on ABC describing the moments that led to the deadly shooting of the Director of Photography for the film Rust. Baldwin teared up a number of times describing how it went down, which some believed was disingenuously performative. Others found it to be genuine. This was the debate had on the Fox & Friends curvy couch Friday morning. On the professional actor side of the debate? Steve Doocy, who made clear that Baldwin is a “professional actor” and seemed to insist Baldwin is responsible for Hylana Hutchins, despite the actor’s insistence. Doocy pointed out that as a producer of the movie, he is ultimately responsible for the actions of the crew. Kilmeade took the other side of the discussion, however. “I know he is like one of the top five actors in the country,” he said. “I don’t think...
    (CNN)In an interview with ABC that aired Thursday, Alec Baldwin shed light on what happened in the moments prior to the fatal shooting on the set of the film "Rust" that claimed the life of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. The actor explained to ABC's George Stephanopoulos that the scene being rehearsed in the church at Bonanza Creek Ranch in New Mexico was going to show him cocking the gun, and he and Hutchins were going over how she wanted to position his hand. "And I cock the gun, I go, "Can you see that? Can you see that? Can you see that?" and she says... and then I let go of the hammer of the gun, and the gun goes off. I let go of the hammer of the gun, the gun goes off," Baldwin recalled.He said he was aiming the gun just off to the side of the camera, as Hutchins was instructing him to, in her direction. "I'm holding the gun where she told me to hold it, which ended up being aimed right below her armpit, was what...
    During an interview with ABC aired on Thursday, Alec Baldwin said that he isn’t responsible for the shooting on the set of “Rust,” he might have committed suicide if he thought he was responsible, and that while he is going to make another movie in January, he wonders if continuing working is worth it. Baldwin said that he doesn’t care about his career anymore and that his career could be over. He continued, “I mean, could I work? I’m going to go make another movie in January. And I said to them, ‘Do you want to get out of it? Do you want to get rid of me because of what happened?’ They said no. But I say to myself, do I want to work much more after this? Is it worth it?” Baldwin also stated, “I feel that someone is responsible for what happened, and I can’t say who that is, but I know it’s not me. I mean, honest to God, if I felt that I was responsible, I might have killed myself if I thought I was...
    During an interview with ABC aired on Thursday, Alec Baldwin stated that he was told that the gun in the “Rust” shooting was a “cold gun” and that he didn’t pull the trigger, but the gun went off after he let go of the hammer. Baldwin said that he was told that the gun was a “cold gun” which “means there’s no charge in there. There could be dummy rounds.” Baldwin also stated that he held the gun where he was told to, which ended up being “right below her armpit.” Baldwin discussed how the firearm discharged. He said that he was instructed to cock the gun and that he pulled the hammer back, and then when he let go of the hammer, the gun went off. He added, “I didn’t pull the trigger. … I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them. Never. Never. That was the training that I had, you don’t point a gun at somebody and pull the trigger.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    The Alec Baldwin primetime interview on ABC with George Stephanopoulos did not get the warm welcome the Disney-owned network had hoped for, with a cavalcade of social media users slamming the broadcast as “disgusting,” a shameless cash grab that disrespects the memory of Halyna Hutchins. Media members and personalities questioned why ABC News would focus so much of its attention on Alec Baldwin, allotting him a platform to gain sympathy while not focusing on the female cinematographer he accidentally shot and killed on the set of his film Rust — the first of its kind since Brandon Lee’s tragic death on the set of The Crow in 1993. The condemnation came from both sides of the political aisle. Sorry, but Alec Baldwin sitting down for a tell all is sickening to me. Somebody died. I don’t need to hear your story, Alec. Honor that girl’s memory & show respect to her family by keeping quiet & letting them tell HER story. @ABC should be ashamed. #BaldwinABC — Syke (Taylor’s Version) (@SykeOnAir) December 3, 2021 This is nothing more than a money...
