Alec Baldwin said, "Now I loathe and despise the media in a way I did not think possible," in his New York magazine cover story/temper tantrum last month. How fitting, then, that he guested as a shitty journalist/shittier person on last night's episode of Law & Order: SVU.

Alec Baldwin is having a rough day. Thursday morning, he attended James Gandolfini's funeral, so emotions were running high.
