    It's a little more than an angry outburst. And yes we can take this to "judge" Alec Baldwin and his parenting.

    Like all the posters on this thread who have children have said, this is unexceptable. There is never, ever a situation that you call your 11 year old daughter a "pig" in anger.

    Anyone that curses in anger at their little children, is not a very good parent. There....I made that judgement.

    This is what he should of said. " hey honey, I'm sorry you missed my call. You know I love you very much. Your mother and I have a lot of problems, but you my dear are not one of them. You are the best thing that ever happen to me. I will call you tomorrow, try and keep your phone on...I love you."

    It's called self control.

    I would then call Kim and take it up with her why her phone was not on. I would not use my daughter as a punching bag for my frustration.

    It's obvious that Basinger was solely behind this being publically released, and trying to humiliate her ex. It's sad. I really feel sorry for this little girl. What a set of parents.

    Yeah, the evident "war" between Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger is one where it is easy to hope they both lose, but the sad thing is that the real loser is their daughter. It is a shame for her.
    I still believe Basinger comes off even worse in this episode than does Baldwin. That tape should not have been made public.

    Well the TV news is non baseball chatter too and that is where I first saw this and it was clearly part of what I was talking about.

    Baldwin has come out and stated that people will understand the emotional pain and anguish he has gone through over these last few years when his new book comes out.

    Sounds as if he is following Pete Rose's public relations strategy.

    Dude, it was a joke. Note the Officially Sanctioned Smilie that followed the sentence,

    I agree with you here for the most part, but I wonder what the judgment of my own mother would be if somebody released the videotape of her whipping me with a belt when I was 6?

    Would you be so proud of everything you ever said to your kids that it could be aired on national television? I mean, would you allow me to judge your skills as a husband or father by me hearing one minute of the worst thing you ever said?

    Admittedly I was shocked by Baldwin's outburst, but then I remember really pushing my mother's buttons to the point of her saying some pretty awful things towards me- things that would seem awful if placed by themselves and aired on public television.

    And my mother was a terrific parent. Terrific does not equal perfect, however.

    I agree. It's bad enough that one parent got mad enough to call you a pig. Now you have to deal with everyone in the world knowing about it. I can only wonder how much grief she'll catch for this at school.

    I'd say about 11 or 12 was right about the time I started really pushing my mom's buttons and making her really upset because I was a stubborn boy becoming a stubborn teenager. I wouldn't have wanted any of our arguments broadcast to a nationwide audience.

    Releasing the tape is worse and more harmful to the child then the tirade itself, IMO.

    A former husband and wife getting into doesn't bother me. But whenever that feud drags an innocent party such as their child into it that's when it becomes inexcusable.

    Maybe at some point in our nations history that was true but with so many in the judges seat eying further political aspirations...especially in a major city like LA...c'mon...it's all about the PR...and this is a HUGE blunder for Baldwin.

    In Ohio, judges are elected, so they already have political aspirations in keeping their job. I don't know about LA though.

    Re: Alec Baldwin voicemail to daughter....

    My kids were out helping Dad today do yard work. We had alot of landscaping to try and get done since we moved into the new home in late August. The three kids were not cooperating at all. Each was worried that the others wasn't going to be doing as much work as they. Meanwhile Dad was getting blisters from raking the straw out of the yard.

    I finally turned to all three of them and came up with a new catch phrase..... "Don't make me go all Alec Baldwin on you. Pick up them rakes and get to work!"
