Is There a Media Double Standard for Alec Baldwin?

Alec Baldwin went on a vicious Twitter rant last Thursday against a reporter who claimed that his wife, Hilaria, had been tweeting about frivolous subjects during the funeral of James Gandolfini. In one of the tweets, which have since been removed, Baldwin called UK Daily Mail reporter George Stark a "toxic little queen" and threatened to "f*** you up."

Stark later admitted he had made a mistake.

Megyn Kelly and Michelle Malkin compared the backlash against Baldwin (or lack thereof) to the situation surrounding celebrity chef Paula Deen.

"He's got issues with everybody," Malkin said, referring to past incidents with Baldwin threatening his own daughter in a much publicized voice mail and arguing with a flight attendant.

Do you think there's a double standard at play?
