Alec Baldwin defended his fellow former MSNBC host Martin Bashir following Bashir's resignation over the controversy surrounding his comments about Sarah Palin.

The former MSNBC host took to Twitter on Thursday, critiquing the network and calling Bashir a creator of "great television":

The comments are somewhat at odds with some of Baldwin's previous statements about Bashir. After Baldwin exited the network following anti-gay comments he made towards a photographer, he told Gothamist, "Martin Bashir's on the air, and he made his comment on the air."
