Alec Baldwin breaks down in new ABC interview

Good Things Utah
  • On Good Things Utah this morning – A tearful Alec Baldwin said he “didn’t pull the trigger” in the fatal shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins, whose death rocked Hollywood and raised concerns about weapons on movie sets. In an interview with ABC News that is scheduled to air Thursday, Baldwin appeared baffled about how the shooting happened. “Well, the trigger wasn’t pulled. I didn’t pull the trigger,” he said in a clip released Wednesday. “No, no, no, I would never point a gun at anyone and pull the trigger at them. Never.” Hutchins, 42, was killed and director Joel Souza, 48, was wounded by a round apparently fired by Baldwin on the New Mexico set of the Western movie “Rust” on Oct. 21 at Bonanza Creek Ranch, in Santa Fe County, New Mexico, officials have said.

  • Finally, let’s put away the argument that face masks make it hard for kids to understand or learn emotions. As we end our second year living with the COVID-19 pandemic, a common concern among parents is that their mask-wearing kids will be emotionally stunted from not being able to read the facial expressions of their caregivers and teachers — or that they’ll be delayed socially. But a new study, published in JAMA Pediatrics, shows that kids are not at all affected in these ways by face masks — in fact, they can read emotions fine even if someone is masked up.
