Alec Baldwin Is Still Holding Onto His Cell Phone
"Let's talk about how much Alec Baldwin wishes. He was only facing charges of bringing steroids into another country. Alec Baldwin is yet to turn over his cell phone to law enforcement officials in connection with the fatal shooting in the movie, rust as we all know. And there are some people who are giving ideas why he might be holding on to his phone for a number of different reasons. There are lawyers who say that he may be concerned about the possibility of incriminating evidence on the phone. I think we all figured out on ourselves. He could have deleted text or photos, which we all do. These texts and photos can hold could hold him in criminal contempt or basically, look, we all want to keep private conversations out of the public. I think we all feel the same way. But there could be incriminating evidence on that phone and, you know, he's nervous about it. But if he deleted text messages or call records, then he faces the possibility of criminal contempt.

Hilaria Baldwin Gets Called Out for Pretending to Spanish
"We have to jump right into this hilarious Baldwin bullshit, right? I mean, it's everywhere today. She's been out on in case you don't know as a phony bullshit artist and a lot. A lot of people are acting surprised even though haven't we all known she's full of shit for years. Remember when she said she approached Alec Baldwin at a party one day and said to him, and what is it you do? Yeah, okay, honey, you don't know what Alec Baldwin does. People like this, you just can't believe. They're full of shit. Even if she did live in Spain, which she did, but if she did, they know who Alec Baldwin is over there. They know how well it is all over the fucking world. I hate his politics, but he has been one of the best actors we've been. I mean, the guys, look, dramas, he plays tough guys, television comedies, indie movies, big box office films, sketch comedy, no. The guys, the guy's great at what he does. To me, only his Trump impression was bad. Everything else he's done has been great. And here he is in his 60s, with this beautiful, tiny, hot wife who pumped out 5 fucking kids and I'm like, I don't even know what 7 years. And he finds himself having to stick up for this wife after the whole Internet has come down on her. For how her love of Spanish culture is turned her into the new charl for God's sake. I don't know why we never noticed this, but apparently Hillary has been speaking with a needless phony Spanish accent for years now and no one is called around on it. I'm sure a lot of it is because the usual woke cancel culture PC crowd leans left and her husband is way up there on the masthead of progressively left leaning blowhards. So they can't possibly call out Hillary. I mean, ilaria. Have you seen the videos of ilaria speaking on talk shows or on extra with this very obviously sexy fake Spanish accent? What did we not see? How did this get by us? It's tough to watch.

"Bill Leah, who's been in the news of late Alec Baldwin, Alec Baldwin appeared with Fredo. Chris Cuomo on a TV program that I can't even find. I have no idea what he broadcasting now. But if you notice, if you notice Alex Walden was talking about how he didn't pull the trigger on that set of that movie and he had commented before to ABC News about that. We'll get into that momentarily. But I have preserved a moment of radio history that I guess Chris libertini and the others here at WABC do not consider to be one of the stellar performances of all time. But I'm going to share with you again what I personally heard. On the 17th floor, two pen pleasure. When we were broadcasting from Madison Square Garden, the year was 2006. And all of a sudden there was an eruption like you couldn't imagine. The owners in operators of WABC Citadel. Had reached out to try to change the direction that we were going and which was a predominantly conservative talk radio program. And they had brought in Alec Baldwin to do a Sunday Night show. Broadway Billy, we did this once before right, but it's worth repeating because it appears that nobody else here at WABC thinks it's historic. Historic is not to work. It had Alec Baldwin
Alec Baldwin Blames Safety Officer Following Fatal 'Rust' Shooting
"Alec Baldwin Alec not the great Adam Alec Can we start this hour over somehow in America On the Chris Cuomo project on YouTube yesterday Cut 16 goes You say you never pulled the trigger but the gun went off You do the ABC interview and it was kind of left there That would not make sense to people If a bullet comes out of a gun they say well then someone fired You're familiar with your hand This did not come from me This came from the DA's office themselves You're familiar with what fanning a gun is If you've heard of that phrase standing a gun but explain if you pull the hammer back and you don't lock the hammer If you pull the hammer back pretty far in old western movies you'd see someone fan the hammer of the gun The hammer didn't lock you pulled it back to an extent where it would fire the bullet without you pulling the trigger without you locking the hammer The man who's the principal safety officer on the set of the film declared that the gun was safe when he handed it to me The person who was the principal safety officer of the film declared in front of the entire assemblage this is a cold gun Now why did he say that If he didn't know if he hadn't checked the point is all of us were told So we're throwing him under the bus Go ahead Working with a gun that's safe to rehearse with But he explained it to me effectively that it's exactly what can happen if you pull a hammer back and let it go If there's a live route there's only one question to ask here Could put a live round in the gun That's it There is no other question to ask

'The Silencing of the Lambs' With Author Michael Brown
"Michael Brown, my friend, welcome. Great to be with you, Eric. Thanks for the memories. You've got a great story, which we're not going to get into today. We've talked about that many times on the program before, but you have a new book out, and unfortunately it's very important. The book is titled the silencing of the lambs, the ominous rise of cancel culture, and how we can overcome it. So what do you say in the book, roughly speaking? There really is an attempt to shut us up to silence us to cancel us to marginalize us and to put us in a place where we can not speak up and get our message out. When I say us, I mean followers of Jesus with conservative biblically based values, I'm not paranoid about this. In fact, a large part of the book is strategies as to how we can overcome. But this is real. I mean, we're in a situation today where it's not just a matter of we disagree with you. But we have to cancel you out. You know, in China, we'll talk about someone with disappeared. They use it as a vowel. They were disappeared. They suddenly, they're not there anymore, or under Soviet Union. Some of this disappearance, they're blanked out. They're blotted out. That's what's happening in a different way. Barry Weiss has spoken up about this. She was in New York Times journalist, a liberal feminist quote, married to another woman and she found the atmosphere in New York Times for her to be so toxic that if you raise a narrative, you are not just criticized but you would cancel she called it social murder and it's so extreme now that you have voices like the irreverent atheist Bill Maher or reverend Jewish comedian Sarah Silverman or actors like Alec Baldwin or sports personalities like Dana White and they're all raising their voice against this Nick Cave singer songwriter in Australia said that cancel culture is mercy's antithesis. So you do one wrong thing. 15 years ago, something in your useful days. It comes out today. You can lose your
SNL Is Worth a Watch These Days
"I watched SNL with the host Oscar Isaac. It was really good. Those of you who sleep on SNL, you're not, you got to stop doing it. You may have hated it for a certain number of years. And I understand, there's been some really crappy people on it, but there's a guy that does Trump that is absolutely great, Alec Baldwin's impression was so stupid. And this guy has Trump down to a T, and he makes fun of themselves, so, you know, there's something for everybody. But the last sketch on SNL was Oscar Isaac as a janitor walking into a local community college creative writing thingy. And he walked in with the mob and the bucket and the teacher was like, oh, no, no, no, we're not done. And you know, and then she says, well, you know, I've seen you with your books in the hallways. Do you write? He's like, yes, I do right. Very meek character. I do. I'm not the writer's you folks are. I just write here and there. And she said, please sit down and read something you've written. No judgments and everybody egged them on. And he began to write this, he began to read the story he wrote. About him mopping the floors at a high school. And of all people do a leap, the pop star coming into the school, asking, are you Mike? Yeah, I might. Oh, I've been wanting to meet you. And basically it went down this road where she asked him, could you teach me to make out? And the teacher of the creative writing class was like, no, no, I don't think we need to go forward. And the two women were like, yeah, this is getting creepy. But the guys were saying, no, no, let them finish. And it got more body with each sentence and page to the point where he obviously was going to bang Dua Lipa this janitor in the school.

Demi Lovato's Descent Into Insanity
"Demi Lovato continues her insane shitshow. After overdose a few years ago, where she died for a short period of time, nobody wanted to believe me, but I was right. Then she had to deal with multiple strokes, which people didn't believe either, but I was right. The loss of speech, the inability to sing, which nobody believed, then Demi said it's not true, but I was right because months and months later, she copped to all of it. It's what you call having good sources. And those of you who listen, but don't pay for my Patreon show, you may want to start doing that because I get this shit where you got stuff on Chris nose and Alec Baldwin, you don't have either way. She was losing her fucking mind after the multiple strokes and when she started to get his speech back and blah, blah blah blah, she began to go, hey everybody, I'm non binary. I'm a they then. Okay, honey. I hope they look insane and nobody believes them. 'cause I can't stand using those pronouns. It doesn't make any sense. I refuse to use them. I'm just giving you a little idea of what it sounds like to talk that way. Then she went with the full Portland Oregon caught the lumberjack lesbian hairdo, something resembling football's Phil Simms inside joke. This is for the guys more than the women. Then she colored it two or three different times with colors you don't necessarily see in a human being more like in a cotton candy machine, but that's what she did. But that wasn't enough course not. And even though she swore to everyone how happy she was and fuck anyone they didn't believe her. She then went with the lipstick lesbian shaved head. And now she's gone even further in her insanity and by polar and mental illness or shall I say her happiness that people like me misconstrue for mental illness the only people not saying this is a problem are all the media writing about her. It's a fucking problem. It's terrible. It's on the level of Britney Spears minus the conservatorship. We're watching the death and demise of a huge pop star.

"alec baldwin" Discussed on Naughty But Nice with Rob Shuter
"It's not even nice. Welcome to the naughty but nice shall I'm your head strong. It is Thursday, which means I dear dear friend Mark lupo loopy loop is joining us. Hey, Mark, are you there? Hey, rob. Hey, I see you back in the city. How was a couple of days with Doris, your mommy? It was lovely as per usual we spent the entire time talking about you and the show. I hope that's not true. I mean, I sort of wish it's true. I hope it's true that to a little bit, but I really do hope it's not true. You and Doris have many, many more things than just rob shoot. I don't know about that. I think you are of a highlight. You're the golden child. Hey, Doris, if you're listening, I know you are a lower level now. Hey, let's jump into the show. We've got so much gossip to get to. What time is it my Friends? It is. Tea time. Thank you, lupia. So Alec Baldwin says that quote, he did not pull the trigger in his first interview since the shootings that Alec is giving his first interview since the rust shooting a preview that we saw on ABC News where he sits down with George Stephanopoulos. Alec is in tears, tears, talking about the death of the cinematographer on the set on October 21st. However, the real surprise is when George Stephanopoulos so I've got to say, I just love him Mark. And me too. Oh, he doesn't mess up Barry asks the questions. He asked Alec. Why he fired the gun when he wasn't supposed to fire the gun in the script and Alec responded, quote, the trigger wasn't pulled, and I didn't pull the trigger. So he never pulled the trigger. No, no, no, no. Alec answered, quote, I would never point a gun at anybody and pull the trigger on them, never. But he didn't go on to explain any more after that. Now, I should point out, Mark, this is just a clip. This is not the final interview. George is such a good journalist. He had to ask a follow-up question. So if Alec did not pull the trigger, George is going to say then how did the gun go off? I hope he says that. I think he will, what do you think? You know, rob this trailer is so emotional and you're watching it because the bags under his eyes. It's literally looks like he's been crying for weeks or months. I think Alec is in a very emotional state. I think my question is, why is he doing this now only one month after the shooting? He's in a lot of legal trouble, and I wonder, well, this ultimately hurt him in the long run. Oh, that's a very good question. It's actually our poll, question of the day, which is why is he doing it this and will it hurt him or will it help him? Anything he says in this interview, lawyers will be looking over. They're going to watch this interview really, really carefully, and you know what? They could even sequest ABC and ask for the outtakes. So legally, they could go to ABC and say, you know, we want the entire interview. When you do interview with a big celebrity sits down for an interview, what you see is not the whole interview. They edit these interviews unless it's live. These interviews are edited..
"alec baldwin" Discussed on TIME's Top Stories
"Support for this podcast and the following message is brought to you by the American Express business platinum card. Got the card that's built for business. By American Express Alec Baldwin to ABC about the rust shooting, I didn't pull the trigger. By The Associated Press, New York Alec Baldwin told ABC's George Stephanopoulos in an interview airing Thursday 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 a cinematographer. I didn't pull the trigger, Baldwin said. I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them. Never. It is Baldwin's first sit down interview since the October 21st shooting on the set of the western film rust. Authorities have said Baldwin was told the gun was safe to handle, but continued to investigate how a live round ended up in the weapon. ABC released a clip Wednesday that shows Baldwin breaking down in tears while describing halena Hutchins, the cinematographer who was killed on the set. Director Joel Souza was also wounded. He said in response to a question about how a live round ended up on the set. I have no idea someone put a live bullet in a gun, a bullet that wasn't even supposed to be on the property.

But i truly believe and i know that he was checking her. Your partner sometimes are you kidding. In this instance. I'm one hundred percent team alec baldwin the second. We have no idea what this man is going through. He just experienced something that has shaped the rest of his life from now. I'm intentionally experience and have to go through. What he went through. Is something that you don't usually come back from fully. And if he needs to tell his wife in that manner give me a second. While i address the public. He gets that second and she. I would have known as her let him go. Yeah because i don't need to step in right now. This is not a press conference about what was going on with her a few months ago. This is a really horrific serious event team. Alec feel like this was like a one offer. Do you feel like this is how they talk to each other. Because i was looking at this. I didn't flinch. That's how he talks to her. Why not get back in your place. I think i think my business. I think she fights back. I don't think she's somebody. I think she does. I think in that instance. I think in that instance. She was like okay. Well because again how can you even. I mean they. They're dealing with something that now. Look i mean not to go so less but he might never do a movie.

"It just you know again. It's it's a lot of hard lessons learned and Some of it I think he he kinda gets what's come into him in terms of the backlash but again i want to reiterate You know i. I wish that it hadn't happened You know because it's just such a a a waste of loss life but yeah and it sucks. Hopefully the everything works out for the family. Honestly whatever happens to him he should be just as good as what happens all the cops that he was pointing his finger. I mean well is to live with it. Yeah and that's the thing. I mean you know from a from a law enforcement or or judicial standpoint. You know he's not going to get charged with murder You know nothing about. It obviously was premeditated or anything like that but What in any state is a little different in terms of their Qualifications for you know what murder one two three and manslaughter. What constitutes each one of those but I suspect that it's going to be something to the effect of. You know if the state can basically say you know what you did while there is no no intent. Your carelessness caused the death of somebody else. You know it's usually a year and a half to two years You know mandatory minimum prison sentence time for for involuntary manslaughter like similar. Like if you're driving a fucking golf card and and you kill somebody or whatever or even driving drunk know what have you. Is it things like that happen. You know in in in this case. That wouldn't be that hard to prove you know. I don't think the state would have a difficult time proving that he was careless. If obviously there were protocols not not followed in the end of the day you know the actors the one with the gun in their hand and if they're supposed to aim it you know off center or Or if they're supposed to check it themselves or whatever and he didn't do that which you know really if there's anything protocol allies that he was supposed to do that he didn't do. That's all that would have to be proven for him to be charged with an improbably You know be convicted guilty of involuntary manslaughter. Which which would land him in prison for a period of time so You know that that's very possible. Yeah question for for both of you. So i read somewhere. That only news outlet that what had happened was he. There was a fake bullet in it would just like the gunpowder. Would it would seem like it came out. But the bullet something went wrong with the actual casing the casing shot out and hit one of the assistance from like a really weird angle. Would that kind of change your opinion on it because he wasn't charged with anything after. Who was this. What news outlet or something. You're saying you heard this is what happened. Yeah i'll alec baldwin. There was just the bullet casing or something with a little bit of powder in it and something went wrong with the casing and the casing shutout. I mean if that's what happened absolutely that would and that's what the investigation will will find and prove or disprove What i will say realistically from you know the little bit of time that i have spent firing guns and then know ballistics knowledge that i do have is that That doesn't sound possible to me. you know. The the casing is not lethal projectile hollow. You know so. Even if it's you know shot quote unquote through a gun like even if you were if you were to use the bullet casing as the as the actual projectile input casing behind it and shoot at that way because it's hollow and the way that it's shaped that i still don't see that killing anybody and that isn't how they're set up so to me like that. Sounds like a total bullshit story. I don't know again curious to see what the investigation leads to but You know not having any of those details. I just don't know but to kill somebody. You know that a projectile house to you know has to work kind of how it was intended to not that that it couldn't have been some weird fluke thing like that but it's very unlikely got okay again just just curious so my thing is so i was wondering this there were using revolvers. It's an old western movie. You know the old revolver blanked guns and. I'm pretty sure because he's a shitty actor now it's not a high production value. Yeah well you know. The old revolvers had the simulated. It looked like a bullet in there but it wasn't a bullet. They were just captain. Welded wonder if one of those is enlarged and shot out. That's the only thing i can think of. That would make a projectile enough. Yeah yeah i mean it's possible i mean to me. It seems all kinds of fucked up variable on it. I mean it seems weird that that would be A detail that they would put into You know into even wheel guns in old westerns. You know. of course it's possible but Yeah i mean like. I said you know we can speculate all fucking day long. The fact is i just don't know You know without knowing what the investigation details are you know who who knows what they are but yeah yeah it's it's just a shitty deal on fact that came out of this is the alec baldwin shady actor and that was probably i mean to me like credit where it's due. I think he's a great actor. I really do. I mean i can't stand the guy. But i think he's good at what he does and again like. I don't wish what happened to him on anybody But for those of you that thank me. Yes man alex go. He hates him. I mean. I don't like him married to that.

This and i know you're going to be you're going to know a lot more about it but alec baldwin went on a rant on twitter about a cop. Wrongfully shooting somebody and how they should go to jail. And all that yeah. I mean he's been one of the biggest anti-gun Mouthpieces and proponents for really strict gun legislation for years. And all i guess start by saying. I don't think he deserves to have what what he did happen to him. Not i don't think anybody does. Now you know and i feel for for him even as well and especially you know the families of the two people that were shot especially the one that lost their life miniatures fucking socks and it's It's you know it's just such a waste. But what i do think he deserves is is getting his ass handed to him on social media for being such a prick for so many years having zero empathy for any cop that that was ever in a position like that or whatever and and You know karma kind of a motherfucker that way again. I don't wish that that that had happened. No matter how big of an asshole somebody is but But i do think he gets what he deserves. you know publicly vocally etc with with all the means and things. Yeah i remember. There was one in particular like i wonder what it feels like killing somebody iran killing somebody. Who's yeah something like that. Just being a total smart ask about it and again. It's like a guy with that kind of you know platform or following whatever you wanna call it that says shit like that That you know again displays zero fucking empathy and in also i would say zero understanding for what it's like to be a first responder You know just such a tone-deaf shitty thing to say and so in that regard like you know he kinda deserves the The shit storm that That he's getting now because of what happened. But just a shitty fucking scenario. Yeah i mean. I i could never imagine i can imagine doing it in self defense or if that was my job to go in and you know have to use a weapon an accidental shooting. I mean i don't care for what he did even the cops who go through this shit. That's horrible yeah. I mean if you're you're being attacked yeah i mean i wouldn't feel bad at all with attacking have to shoot somebody but to go with through. He's having to go through. Those families are going through. It's pretty fucking bad especially for the making of a movie you know. And that's the thing one of the things that really chaps my ass. Generally speaking about hollywood and the movie industry is is a lot of these guys michael shannon's one of them matt damon's one of them You know guys that are really really fucking vocal about how anti gun they are yet they make all these movies that glorify guns where they're using guns to to make millions of dollars to stand up on a soapbox and talk about how evil guns are You know and so similarly i would say okay. You know like so so. It's the gun's fault in like no like you fucked that up. I mean there is a number of protocols that are put in place on movie sets to avoid that happening there there were even before the crow back in the nineties were Bruce lee's son died in similar fashion. And since then there's been a lot of mitigation protocols put in place to You know to alleviate things like that from happening something as simple as generally speaking You know they make the camera angles so that when when you're pointing a gun at somebody and shooting at even in a scene You know an anti gun. Is that you still you know. Shift one direction or or up. High just enough. So we're the sites are basically if there was a real Real live ammo in the in the gun that it wouldn't hit the person and so Obviously on top of that. You know multi person checks of ensuring that before a gun gets handed to an actor. You know that it's check multiple times to make sure that it's the right Right one and doesn't have live ammo in it and whatever you know. Those are are supposed to always happen. And i think you know it really just highlights just like law enforcement or in the military or whatever is that you can't mitigate every single shitty accident out you know yeah you do your best and and whatever but whether it's getting complacent or just all the the right things kinda lined up in in the worst way possible for something like that to happen like that. That does happen. Sometimes you know if you think about every movie that's ever been made and how many people have died from things like that like a really percentage just like in law enforcement there's millions of interactions between cops and citizens day in day out where nothing happens you know and so if you just highlight on on that than it You know it's easy to make people think that it happens all the time. We're we're just doesn't you know and To me like the response you not to give him kind of a taste of his own. Medicine would be like how many movie industry professionals have to die before we just ban guns from fucking movie sets you know. Like where's that fucking me matt. Yeah where's that you know. Congressional fucking level legislation being put forth and ao. See wearing a fucking dress says ban guns on movie sets to a fucking thirty thousand dollar plate dinner. Where the fuck is that. you know. there's no nothing like that. It's crickets because you know they don't they don't like to fuck and follow the same rules or Or the same blowhard mouthpiece bullshit that they espouse that the bad part is it's very touching situation on how they can make fun of this. The deal i mean. I'm in the wayne's brother sitting there doing a parody with fucker people chase her around people with bananas and shit so they don't hurt anybody in reality someone lost their lives. So it's fucking shitty. yeah You know in in for the sake of entertainment too. I mean you. You could even argue it even further that way honestly and that. It's a fucking movie. it's pretend like shit you're doing pretending to do things like you know you're a professional liar for a living you impersonate somebody else. That's your fucking job and because of doing that you know somebody somebody died. You know law enforcement is is an necessity to keep Orders as much as. I don't like you know some of the the laws that are on the books and that exists. The fact is is that i support the shit outta law enforcement and they're an absolute necessity for our society to function. Or it's going to go to fucking straight chaos. You know so. The the fact that their job is is absolutely necessary and and You know it's one. That's never that that need is never going to go away whereas movies. I mean you saw it with cova is that You know the when they had the they broke it down into You know basically necessary versus not necessarily which i think. Everybody's livelihood is necessary but You know movies were the first one of the first things to go entertainment and sports right the first two things that people shit canned during the shutdowns. Because that should isn't isn't necessary you.

"Yeah, tell me how the entertainment industry is responding to this so far. Well, so far there is a change dot org petition that drew tens of thousands of people within a few hours of going up, asking to have firearms banned on sets. I've talked to a number of people who work on Cruz who say it's time. They've got to get rid of these. They're just it's an unnecessary risk. It'll take time. But I sort of suspect that they will be phased out. And you mentioned at the top of the show that this is coming sort of on the heels of a broader conversation about how entertainment industry workers are treated right now. Remind people what's going on there? Right. So I see, which is the union that represents a lot of the people who make up the film crews. So you're talking about camera operators, grips and gaffers and by grips and gaffers, I'm talking about, you know, the people who put up the lighting and riggings and help kind of make sure that the sets are constructed and things like that. They're doing all the kind of manual labor that's required to actually pull off these films. There's a small army of workers on every film set. They've just renegotiated their contract with the studios and it calls for certain concessions. You know, for example, studios were not required previously to give Cruz weekend rest times. That's a concession and cruiser also going to receive a minimum rest of ten hours between leaving a set and returning to that set. Now the problem is this contract has not been ratified yet. And it was already somewhat unpopular, at least in sort of social media circles because they felt that their negotiators actually didn't get enough from the studios. And that part of this is because of peak content, if you will, what is peak content? Yeah. I mean, peak content is kind of a catch all for this explosion of different distribution platforms throughout the media landscape. So, you know, in the old days you had broadcast television and you had movies. Now you have not just broadcast television and cable television and cinema, but you also have these streamers that have come in and the amount of content that they need to kind of keep you subscribed is just staggering, frankly. I mean, Netflix releases a new original movie every week. That's kind of output that more traditional sort of media players, what's really maybe and a good year 12 to 14 films. You know, they can't possibly match that. And there's all these series and miniseries. And it's never happened before. It's worth remembering, right? This is never had this amount of work. And then the problem was during the pandemic you had a shutdown where production couldn't happen for several months, really, until some other safety measures were put into place to make sure that sets remain COVID free requiring extra testing and things like that. By the way, measures that add time to films production as well as costs, so that's something that the producers have had to shoulder. And so people are feeling like they're being asked to work longer hours than ever in order to make these films and shows this big backlog of material that's being greenlit for all these different streamers and studios. So it's kind of creating this perfect storm where people just feel spread too thin, frankly. Brent, I think to a lot of people working on a movie set with movie stars sounds like a total dream job, but do you think this iati labor movement and this tragedy on the set of rust has sort of made clear to people that there are just as many drawbacks to working on a movie set or a TV set as perhaps any other plain old job? Well, I think there is an illusion that working in film and television is this really glamorous job because what we see are pictures from red carpet premieres and film festivals and these glamorous looking movie stars. But there's a whole infrastructure behind Ryan Reynolds and Tom Cruise and what have you. And it's a real blue collar infrastructure. It's made up of people who are, you know, building sets and applying makeup and doing hair and hauling very, very heavy cameras. And it can pay well, people get compensated decently, but the hours are insane. And in some cases, you're being asked to do dangerous things. I mean, just look at what a camera operator has to do. They have to be in the line of fire, literally, sometimes. They have to be in front of pyrotechnics to capture them. They have to be hanging off of helicopters to get the shot. So there's danger involved. There's upside, of course, you know, it's an exciting dynamic industry, but even if you like your job after the pandemic after what we've all been through, there are elements about it that you probably didn't like. And every workplace is having a conversation, I think, a much needed one about sort of what workers are required to do. And now really also the workers are participating in that dialog. And in some cases, they're pushing back and saying, you know, you may want us to do this. You may want us to have these kinds of working conditions. But we're actually not willing to work in those conditions. And is it all but sure that this tragedy on the set of rust gives entertainment industry workers more leverage in these conversations going on right now, but how they're treated? Well, they've reached an agreement, but they haven't ratified a contract. So the question is, does this inspire iozzi members to vote down that contract and force their leadership to go back to the negotiating table? I don't know. It's a very diverse union. There's 60,000 members. The ones that you hear from on Twitter and Facebook are usually the ones who are the most upset about working conditions. But it's.

Brent, I think, since the shooting last week, a lot of people have been wondering how guns work on Hollywood sets. What do we know about what transpired on the set of rust with this gun? Well, what we know is that Baldwin had been told it was a cold gun, which means that there was no live rounds or blanks in the gun. And he was using that gun for rehearsal. So we know who told him it was a cold gun? That's a little unclear, but it appears to have been the assistant director Dave hall's who informed Baldwin that it was a cold gun. And usually on a set, there is the armorer who prepares the guns and then there is the assistant director who's in charge of kind of the safety. And often the stunt coordinator is also involved. But somebody told Baldwin and multiple people said they heard kind of a warning go out that it was a cold gun. And a cold gun means that someone has tested this gun and confirmed that there's no live ammunition in it. Absolutely confirmed there's not only no live ammunition. There are no blanks and there's no material that God stuck in the chamber which could become a projectile and potentially harm someone. Did this film set have an armorer and a stunt coordinator on set at the time? It's unclear about whether or not the stunt coordinator was on set, but presumably a stunt coordinator was on set because they are supposed to coordinate anything involving stunts and firearms. We do know the armor was on set that day, our guest for today is Hannah Reid. She is an armorer in Hollywood. By Hannah, how are you? Hi, I'm great. How are you guys? She's 24 years old. She had a fairly thin resume, frankly before this movie. And in a podcast that's been subsequently resurfaced and in comments that have not aged well, she talks about feeling underprepared when she took on a different action oriented project and mentioned that loading blanks was something that made her incredibly anxious. I think the best part about my job is just showing people who are normally kind of freaked out by guns like how safe they can be and how they're not really problematic and less put in the wrong hands. It's a tool. More details have also come out about Dave hall's the assistant director and his problematic past when it came to firearms on sets and safety regulations. What's come out about Dave hall's? So what we've found out is that Dave hall's was fired from the set of a movie called freedom's path in 2019, and that was after a crew member incurred a minor and temporary injury when a gun was unexpectedly discharged. So I mean, in that case, a terrible tragedy was averted, but it's obviously a troubling history and apparently on the set of that film halls also didn't do enough safety meetings and things like that proper kinds of procedures. Licensed pyrotechnician Margaret gold claims, halls failed to maintain a safe environment. When she worked with him on a previous project. Basically yelling at people that we need to get things done, ignoring people when they say that they need a minute to do something safely. It looks as though you had to the production a crew that was underprepared and was not taking the proper precautions. You had too little money, too much ambition, perhaps when it came to action scenes, there were a lot of different entities and companies that were involved in it, including Baldwin's own company, El Dorado, but who was the sort of this strong predatorial hand here, you know, somebody on set, making the final calls, you know, that's still unclear. It's a pretty upsetting pitcher of disorganization. Can we talk about the actual gun? I mean, this was not a prop gun. This was a live firearm. Exactly. It was an actual firearm. And some people that I've talked to who work on crews were kind of horrified that during a rehearsal, they would actually be alive firearm. As in they would save that for the actual shooting. Yeah, that you would have a rubber gun to sort of rehearse and plan things out. It's not always the case. It sounds like it sort of varies. But they felt like there was no real need to take that kind of risk. And fans of like goth action movies from the mid 90s will remember that this isn't the first time something like this has happened on a movie set, yeah? Absolutely. I mean, you had a similar tragedy happen with Brandon Lee on the crow and he died after 6 hours of surgery. What happened to Brandon was a tragic accident and since then I am very conscious of the dangers of making a movie and it is a dangerous proposition working with more precautions were taken in the aftermath of that accident. You know, there was a kind of industry wide movement about safety on set. There's also another historical parallel didn't involve a firearm, but three actors were killed on the set of The Twilight Zone in the 1980s. Active ik Moro and two children were taking part in the final moments of The Twilight Zone film. Explosions set off by special effects teams rocked the helicopter, which hovered above. The third blast blew our tail prop off and it was all over. We just started spinning going around and circles about one and a half times or something and crashed into the river beds, and on our way down is when we hit the actors. That put a lot more pressure on Hollywood studios to get serious about how they treated on set safety. So as horrible as these tragedies are and, you know, there really are no words to describe 42 year old woman with a 9 year old son about to sort of enter a new stage of her career dying on a set needlessly. The only sort of positive thing to come out of it is that it inspires a larger conversation about safety protocols. So hopefully you can ensure that something like this doesn't take place again..

"Appear in tons of these things. Okay. We have to take control. I've seen how these things end. Nobody remembers them. They're completely ephemeral. But they get paid relatively well. And it looks like that there was some financial incentive for Baldwin to do this. And for his company, El Dorado pitchers to be involved as a producer too. So I don't know much about the plot, but it seems sort of like an action oriented western. It was made for about $7 million, which is a pittance. When it comes to a movie of this kind of size and scale. And heading into this tragic incident that transpired last week, how were things on the set of rust? So basically, when you're working on a movie, sometimes you're being asked to put in 16 to 18 hour days. And then you have to drive home, and historically, there have been accidents where people and crews have gotten into car accidents because they've been so overtired. So a lot of the crew members reportedly were upset that they were not given hotel or motel rooms closer to the set. So they're lodging was inadequate that they felt. And that was causing some safety concerns. There was obviously a lot of tension on the set before this accident happened. And in fact, on the day of the accident, a new crew had come in to replace an old crew that had walked off, and that had led to substantial delays in filming that day. We actually have a pretty clear picture of what happened on the day of the accident because investigators have released affidavits from the film's director Joel Souza and another cameraman on the set. And so what happened is the production got a late start in part to the fact that new crew had come in and that they only had one camera available to them to shoot. There are reports several members of the crew complained about the long hours and low pay with some walking off the movie shortly before the accident. So they start rehearsals, they break for lunch, the cast and crew go to an off site before that the guns that were going to be used in a scene had been prepared and were sitting on a table and at some point after they come back around 1230 or so. Baldwin is sitting in a church pew, he's in costume and western garb, and he's talking to the director and to the cinematographer, Elena Hutchins. According to a newly released affidavit, Susan told investigators that Baldwin was sitting in a church pew, rehearsing a scene for the western film rust in the scene, he draws his revolver across his body and points it at the camera. And they noticed the shadow so they move their camera slightly. And then he goes to show them how he's going to pull his gun out of the holster. And when he pulls the gun out of the holster, it discharges. Hutchins took a lethal shot to the chest, while Souza, who was standing behind her, was wounded in the shoulder. The director describes hearing a loud sort of pop as does the cameraman. Helena, Hutchins, falls to the ground, says she can not feel her legs. Medics then come in, they try to stop the bleeding. The script supervisor makes a phone call to 9-1-1. Accidentally shot on a movie set by a prop gun. We need healthy media. Generic pre grant, come on. So Helena falls to the ground, emergency personnel show up. She is taken via helicopter. She's later pronounced dead at a hospital in Santa Fe. Joel is also taken to the hospital where he's treated for a wound in his shoulder. And it's a relatively minor when he's discharged. What happens to Alec Baldwin? Alec Baldwin is interviewed by the police. There are pictures of him outside the sheriff's office and Santa Fe, looking completely stricken. He's sort of bent over. And one of them. Baldwin tweeting from the account he shares with his wife, there are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Elena Hutchins. I am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. One assumes he will take some kind of work break. I don't know how you really get over something like this. First of all, he may be facing some kind of legal liability because he was not only the star of this film. He was also one of the producers. So he could, you know, have a lot of litigation that he has to be involved with for a while. And then there's kind of the personal toll that something like this takes on someone. I don't know. I feel like he's in for a lot of pain. Personally, maybe even professionally. Certainly legally. What do we know about the investigation into what exactly happened here so far? Well, it's ongoing. You know, certain key people on the set have been interviewed Baldwin has been interviewed. Souza has been interviewed, a cameraman who was nearby when the accident happened, presumably other members of the crew have been interviewed. And they've taken certain materials, the costume Baldwin was wearing, which apparently was stained with blood and also whatever round had been discharged. But they're being very careful about, you know, announcing any kind of conclusions. You know, they haven't said whether or not there was live ammunition in the firearm. A union Ayaz local 44 released an email saying there had been live ammunition, the police are going to have a press conference on Wednesday. Presumably they'll share more details. So we're still looking at, you know, what happened in the lead up to this accident? You know, was there negligence? Was it a terrible human error? What safety procedures and protocols were ignored? There are a lot of questions still. Do we know if rust is going to finish filming or is this kind of the end of this movie? So rust has suspended production until the investigation is concluded. You know, my gut sort of tells me that rust is never going to be concluded. It's an independently financed film. That involves a lot of different parties and entities putting little bits of money in and it's always precarious situation to actually complete one of these movies. And then you throw in something like this. And it just it scrambles the whole thing and then I'm not sure people are going to want to watch this movie.

"News works these days is that it comes to you. No matter where you are or what you're doing. Like, when you're hanging out in your couch on a Thursday night at 11 o'clock in your phone buzzes and it says that Alec Baldwin accidentally killed someone? Well, I think obviously there's the sort of the lurid aspect right that it's an Oscar nominated Emmy winning beloved actor involved in a terrible tragedy. It's a very rare thing that happens, so that's why it continues to kind of dominate the news cycle. But Brent Lang is an executive editor over at variety. If you dig a little deeper it points to some fundamental issues involving safety on film sets and television sets. And some larger labor problems that have been exposed in recent months. And really a growing sense of grievance among the grips and gaffers and camera operators and makeup artists and all of the hundreds of people who allow us to enjoy these movies and shows that we stream and we binge and we buy tickets for a non pandemic times who are frustrated that they feel that they've been sort of pushed to the breaking point and often asked to engage in unsafe work practices. Well, I want to get there, but let's start with what we know happened on this set. Let's start with this movie. It's called rust and clearly no one had heard of it until last week. And frankly, probably a movie that no one would hear that much about. It looks like it was a very low budget action film. I think vultures called them geezer teasers. Their films with kind of high end actors who come in and do these sort of action oriented movies that get sold to foreign markets and appear on.
"alec baldwin" Discussed on Gun Talk
"With you here Tom Gresham. It's gun talk. If you'd like to join us 8 6 6 talk gun I think that everybody's talking about right now. And I've been started up on Twitter. I crank it up, stir the pot a bit. Is the Alec Baldwin shooting. On a set in New Mexico, the actor Alec Baldwin shoots and kills the cinematographer. A young woman Helena Hutchins. And wounded director Joel suza. What happened how did it happen? What can we learn from it, what you take on it? Boy, this is like a Rorschach test for a lot of people. It reveals more about them than it was about the incident when you see some people's responses. What do I mean by that? Well, unfortunately, what I'm seeing is that there are some people not everybody, but some people in the culture who just are delighted at the hypocrisy of this. And yes, Ali Baldwin is an unlikeable person to get that. He's a hypocrite. He has hammered gun owners and gun rights and made fun of us, he has gone after Dana lash repeatedly. He said, awful things about guns and shooting and gun ownership and secular amendment. All that being said, okay, I get all that. I do understand that background. I mean, I do have to say it. He's an inconsequence element for me because I don't pay attention to it. I haven't watched Saturday Night Live in decades. Just don't care. He's like, I have nothing burger for me. But having said all that, look, let's not lose sight of something here. A young mother was killed. No one should be taking delight or glee. In this, okay? There are several things that need to say about this. One is that we don't really know what happened. We think we know, we know it's being reported, but remember that what's being reported may not be true, often is not especially the closer you are to the episode. The less likely it is to be correct. And as we get time away from this, we will learn more and the reports will be more accurate. A lot of what we're hearing is partial truths and often just nonsense. So what happened here? Well, my first thought was, well, Jeff, hold a cast. Somebody kill somebody with a blank gun again. It's looking like maybe that's not what happened. It's looking like, and remember, this is all subject change because we don't really know yet reports are not in. It's looking like it was a live round. And a live gun. And to those who say, well, this rests solidly on Alec Baldwin, rule number one, four rules of gun safety. He pointed a gun at somebody pull the trigger kill him. I got to understand it. He was handed reports are he was handed? This handgun is revolver. By insistent director who said it's a coal gun. It appears that the assistant director has a history of problems and issues with gun safety on sets. And clearly it was not a call. And it was not an unloaded gun. And so he didn't check it and alcohol didn't check it. How many times have we talked about this? Where if I see you check a gun and you show me it's unloaded. You hand it to me, guess what I'm going to do? I'm going to open the gun up, and I'm going to look at it and see that's unloaded. Not because I don't trust you, but because it's that important. Well, it's also because I don't trust you. Trust but verify, right? It's too important not to do that. And so a lot of people are having trouble with me trying to explain that I want to know how it happened as opposed to ascribing blame. I saw the blame rest on Alec Baldwin. Yes, but it's a yes but, but I want to know the chain of events that happen to get it to that point. Where was the armorer on this? Hannah Reid was the armorer. For those who go way back, she is the daughter of Phil Reed. It was a contemporary of colonel Jeff Cooper. With old leather slab competitions. And then they'll read became one of the top armorers in movies in California. So she grew up in this. Some reports say she wasn't even there when this happened. It also makes you want to know if again, if the reports are true, that the AD, the assistant director ran out and grabbed this gun off of a table, maybe they were several guns there. Why were there guns sitting on a table outside and why were they loaded? One of the more disturbing things I've heard again unsubstantiated at this point. Is that Alec Baldwin was out actually doing target practice earlier in the day with live rounds on the set. If so, that ridiculous, that's absurd. That's unconscionable. Where are the safety protocols? Look, I have produced a directed hundreds and hundreds of videos of television episodes. real bullets. We're not using fake guns. Now, when we do our first person defender series,.

"We got to talk about Alec Baldwin. The tragedy of killing a cinematographer on this set of a movie called rust in New Mexico. How weird. How weird that on yesterday's Patreon.

So eerie, I'll get those shows to you guys next week. But for now, we've got to try and figure out and make sense. What the hell happened was Baldwin? The Santa Fe sheriff's department confirmed that Thursday night, Alec Baldwin discharged the prop gun that killed the cinematographer, halyna Hutchins and injured the director Joel Souza on the set of this big western feature film on location in New Mexico. Hutchins was 42 years old. She died being transported to the hospital in Albuquerque. Sus 48 remains in a local hospital and his condition is going to be fine. It's unknown, but he ain't gonna die. And of course, they're saying mister Baldwin was questioned by investigators and released no arrests or charges have been filed. We've seen pictures of him and I'm sure you haven't been crying on cell phones bent over distraught. I'm not trying to make light of this. This is horrible. This is horrifying.

"Did alec baldwin really know and i. I don't really know. I really. I think i think he's a weird guy <hes>. You know he was awful to kim bassey basing her his wife he was. You know awful to the daughter. When she was about thirteen is the famous. You know voice message that he left her. They were going through very very contentious divorce. And a lot of lawyers involved a lot of custody battles between alec and kim. And i think it was about thirteen and i think either she flaked on their time alone or didn't wanna go over to the dad's house which happens a lot when kids are about that age and their parents are separated and he left her. The message saying your little pig. And i guess kim did submit it in her divorce findings and it went public. And i mean there's even a youtube video of door the explorer like with the voice of it. I remember my sons went saw. It went very viral since then ireland. A very pretty girl also very popular and instagram. She is an adult now. <hes> kim has really not been acting. I haven't seen her in much. She's sixty seven years old. I did not realize that she was actually older than alec <hes>. But i don't know what she's up to but when this story broke down a couple days after christmas who was the girlfriend. That is like kim coming over with a bottle of wine and let us fuck and talk even if she didn't care about hillary under five kids and that you know because obviously she was nicer daughter ireland. But there's just got to be some satisfaction in knowing that your ex husband's wife is been proven to be full of shit as far as this still doesn't mean she's not a nice person. A charitable person. But this is weird in a nutshell. She grew up in boston. She went to high school here. Her parents are white her. She's relatives all the way from like the revolutionary war or whatever. There is no spanish in her blood at all. The dad got into teaching some spanish studies. The data and the mom who are still married moved to spain in two thousand and eleven. And i think the brother might have gone there as well and visited or whatever and she went on in so many interviews so many things to say that her family lives in spain so in one interview. They're like now wait. What happens like i came here. I came here when i was nineteen to go to school at nyu. And the two female interviewers are like. Oh from spain yes. My family lives in spain. now. She didn't say i was born in spain and then she tried to say in correcting that when she didn't think it was going to be a big deal like the first day this broke. She did an instagram <hes>. Tv like right to camera and then she took it down and that's when she said <hes>. What i meant was. I moved from boston to nyu when i was nineteen because all these people went to high school with hillary in boston so i thought that was really interesting now. They met her and alec met. According to. everything's been researched. Is he walked into a restaurant. New york was there and she was there and she was speaking perfect spanish to a waiter and he said i must tell you and she said you must know me now. I think he just was like loved that little sexy spanish. You know much like a selma hayek. Who was his love. Interest in thirty rock for in two thousand eight two thousand and nine. He met hillary in two thousand and eleven. And i think that just was kinda like hot. It's like it's like the couple. Let's see we're here. They are getting married. I'm looking on my youtube for those of you. That like to watch on youtube all the photos from their wedding and she kept very much with the spanish theme. She has this long traditional spanish. Veil that covers your head. It's very you know it's from that type of style and they. I think they had a spanish speaking priest. They found eight. Spanish church catholic church in in new york to get married in and she did interviews forty people from my family over from spain so it was crazy. You can imagine how crazy it was with the spaniards here. Well those people are just people that live in their vacation home that like retired there and came over and then she said oh my god and my relatives there like how do we say your new. New name is baldwin baldwin. They don't their spanish. They don't know how to save baldwin. I mean it just continues on alec. Baldwin goes on david letterman and starts imitating his wife spanish accent and he goes and it's not being racist because she is from spain and she you know and so he's doing he's playing into it and i just think people sitting back loved it and the more that they loved it and encourage it. I think he just went along with it. I don't know that he ever really asked her about her high school life. He might be one of those guys. That doesn't really ask. I don't know. I ask a lot of questions. But you know. I just interviewed emily simpson from real housewives of o see and. She said she's never really asked her husband about his mormonism and they've been together twelve years so i don't know how other couples work but i think he loved the package so kelly just said what do you think when he met the parents and they didn't have an accent. I don't know that he really cared to get to know the parents a lot of you know there. He's an older guy. He has his wife. She's popping out babies. She's really sweet to him. She's down to boehner many time she can whip up a nice meal. I dunno and you know he has to. He's one of these guys that works a lot and he kind of has to. I don't think he's enormously wealthy as a star you know. He needs to take the. He does like a show with celebrity. Some game show. I forgot the name of it to the truth or to tell the truth. I don't know what it and he said. I take paycheck like i. There's jobs i take straight up. I need the paycheck. I've got you know six kids including ireland. And you know home in the hamptons home in new york i think he has really expensive lifestyle and <hes>. But i think he totally loves and loves what she was. and i don't know i just. I don't know that. I think she was kind of used to presenting herself. Like that was starting to get into it and then like on their first date you know she said oh for the first five weeks we just held hands and then you know five months into the relationship. We got an apartment together and so it's just fascinating. I want to see a movie made about this. I really do of when do you go. When do i stop. Or for some people like madonna. Who picked up an english accent. When she was living in england did she just become so used to it that she kind of forgot her old way of speaking. Like if i had to do an impression of drew barrymore war. I could do her for an entire week and then i could. I do for a month. Yeah could do for year. Probably and then. Maybe i'll just forget if it was part of my life if i had to do this just like when somebody became becomes an actor in a really intense movie. They sometimes say i'm not going to get out of this character the entire three months. I'm doing this movie. I'm going to be like this one. It's break time at lunch. I'm gonna. That's what i'm gonna do because that's how i do it so i don't know it just fascinating and then at first ireland defended her and i'm so sick of people bullying you know and being cruel. What do you care and stay at people's lives. You don't know well. I think it's one thing to be an actor and you put yourself out there as an actor but in this day and age. If you're an actor or television personality that also goes and makes a huge presence on instagram. Then i really think you cannot bitch because if you're going to open your life on instagram if you're going to profit from instagram than people do know you those nine hundred thousand people that follow you do feel like they know you and they feel deceived
