Greyhound Issues Open Letter to Alec Baldwin

DALLAS, Dec. 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Greyhound today issued an open letter to Alec Baldwin in response to comments made by the actor on Dec. 7 regarding Greyhound. Following is the response from Greyhound President and CEO Dave Leach:

Dear Mr. Baldwin,

As president and CEO of Greyhound, I was disheartened to hear about the comments you made regarding our company. Now I’m the first to admit that Greyhound has had some challenges with brand perception, so I understand that you probably were basing your comments on that alone. But we’ve made so many changes in recent years to significantly improve the travel experience. My guess is you’ve never traveled with us, but I ask you to give us a try for a number of reasons and see for yourself that we’re really a great way to travel.

First of all, we have hundreds of new buses in our fleet where we’ve added more legroom, leather seats, power outlets and free Wi-Fi. I think you especially would find the latter two amenities exciting, because we don’t require our customers to turn off their electronic devices…ever. You could therefore play Words With Friends® during your entire trip and nobody would give you any grief over it. As a matter of fact, we have a Facebook page (www.facebook.com/GreyhoundBus), so if you wanted to start a Words With Friends game with us, just Like us and we’d be more than happy to take on the challenge.

As the industry leader, Greyhound is committed to providing a new class of service to our customers. After all, we carry more than 17 million customers every year. We’ve been training all of our employees to provide stellar customer service, we’re moving into brand new, modern facilities and fixing up the ones we currently reside in, and we’re putting more focus on getting customers to their destinations much faster. I think you’d like our premium Greyhound Express service, which provides customers a guaranteed seat on our new buses, with direct trips between major city pairs in the Northeast, Midwest and Southeast. I invite you to meet with me in New York and we’ll take a trip to Boston so you can see first-hand what a great ride Greyhound can be.

Should you still decide not to try us, even after I’ve shared with you all of the exciting changes we’ve made here at Greyhound, all I ask from you is a simple apology. We are not the same company we used to be. We are better, providing a safe, affordable and modern travel alternative to other forms of transportation. Greyhound is an American icon, a proud company that many people depend on to get them to their destinations, the same people who watch your films and TV show. Mr. Baldwin, please reconsider your position and come see how great a company Greyhound has become.

Alec Baldwin Has A Twitter Meltdown; Keder And SooperMexican Get Featured On The Five

Rumor has it that Alec Baldwin had a little bit of a Twitter meltdown last night.  I missed out on it live, but I caught a little bit of it this morning on this website. (check it out; it’s pretty nutty)  The Five, a show with five hosts that comes on at 5pm (get it?), decided to feature some of the meltdown in one of their segments today.  It just so happens that I know and follow two of the tweeters they show Alec Baldwin getting into it with. (@keder and @SooperMexican)  If you’re into conservative politics and snark (and who isn’t?), then you’ll want to check these two guys out for sure.  Watch the video below, and make sure to check out the link above, to catch all the zaniness.

And if you’d like to show support for these brave heroes that went up against one of Hollywood’s biggest stars, be sure to send them love on Facebook or in the comments below.

Alec Baldwin Hangs Out With OWS Protestors, Shoots New Capital One Ad


If you thought feminine man-boy, Adam Levine, was conflicted (he’s the one that said Fox News is an “effing” evil news channel), then you’ll really get a chuckle out of today’s conflicted celebrity.  It’s our pal, Alec Baldwin.  You know, the Emmy Award winning actor that hangs out with the occupiers of Wall Street.  Here he is giving advice to the OWS kids.

And here he is talking about wanting to go hang out with the OWS kids.  (and then a follow up tweeting announcing he was on his way)


So we know that he supports the kids who are “occupying Wall Street”.  We have that much cleared up.  What we don’t have cleared up is why he has a new Capital One commercial airing even after several weeks of supporting the protestors in Zuccotti Park.  We don’t really have that one cleared up….  Here it is:

For the record…. I actually like the commercial.  ‘Ol Alec’s a charming guy.  I just think it’s odd that he’s so supportive of “occupy” protestors, but he keeps shilling for those “evil” banks.

What do you guys think?  Is Alec Baldwin confused?  Does he support the protestors, or does he support the bankers?  Maybe he’s buttering both sides of his bread.  He needs fans, but he needs employers too.  Who knows?  Let us know what you think in the comments below.  And as usual, you can also tell us on Twitter and Facebook.  We’re not picky.  I mean, you can rent a plane and submit your responses with sky-writing, but I can’t promise I’ll get the message.  If you do sky-write it, be sure to tweet me and let me know.
