Alec Baldwin Pulls Out of Emmys Over Cut Murdoch Joke

Actor Alec Baldwin was so incensed that Fox cut his joke about News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch from tonight's Emmy Awards coverage that he's not showing up for tonight's ceremony at all. Fox's editorial decision made his bit not-funny, Baldwin says.

As the Daily News reports, the segment showed Baldwin talking on the phone, then stopping to call out Murdoch for "listening in" to the conversation. "I understand NewsCorp killing that joke," Baldwin tweeted, adding, "If I were enmeshed in a scandal where I hacked phones of families of innocent crime victims purely 4 profit, I'd want that 2 go away, 2." 4 Real.
