Anderson Cooper: 'Why Does Alec Baldwin Get a Pass Using Gay Slurs?' Conservative 'Would Be Vilified'

As NewsBusters previously reported, Alec Baldwin had another major meltdown on Twitter Thursday which included a homophobic attack on a British reporter.

CNN's Anderson Cooper struck back Friday posting on Twitter, "Why does #AlecBaldwin get a pass when he uses gay slurs? If a conservative talked of beating up a 'queen' they would be vilified":

Well Anderson, it's simple: liberals are allowed to say and do whatever they want no matter how offensive and hypocrites in the media will always give them a pass.

It's like how feminist groups such as the National Organization for Women weren't at all bothered by how President Clinton treated women.

Since they agreed with his politics, his sexual misdeeds were unimportant.

Frankly, I'm surprised Cooper didn't realize this up until now, and that it took a slur hitting him where he lives to wake him up to the hypocrisy.

For the record, here are some of the homophobic comments Baldwin tweeted Thursday that would have likely ended the career of any conservative media member:

Imagine a conservative radio host making such a comment. Seems doubtful he'd be on radio any longer.

But a liberal such as Baldwin tweeting this?

Probably won't impact his career one bit.

*****Update: Conservative author Michelle Malkin observed that Cooper should heal himself when it comes to vulgar slurs:
