"What I realize about him is, everybody in media, they have a job to do. Anderson Cooper has a job to do. And that job is to try to reinforce his credibility in the gay community after the fact that you couldn't get him out of the closet for 10 years with a canister of tear gas. Now he's the sheriff. Now he's running around writing everybody a ticket!"
-- Alec Baldwin speaking on the Howard Stern show about Anderson Cooper's recent tweet about Baldwin's meltdown after a reporter accused his wife of tweeting during a funeral. Baldwin, a strong supporter of LGBT rights, called the reporter a "queen" and a "bitch." Cooper took offense and tweeted, "Why does Alec Baldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a 'queen' they would be vilified."
