CNN issued a statement Friday announcing that anchor Rick Sanchez has been let go from the network after giving a radio interview in which he insinuated Jon Stewart was a bigot and CNN was “run by Jews.”

β€œRick Sanchez is no longer with the company,” the statement read. “We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.β€œ

Sanchez let loose on “The Daily Show’s” Stewart while appearing on the ” Stand Up! with Pete Dominick” SiriusXM radio show Friday morning.

Sanchez, who is Cuban American, said there’s racism in the media “not just [from] the right,” but also “elite, Northeast establishment liberals” that “deep down, when they look at a guy like me, they see a guy automatically who belongs in the second tier, and not the top tier.”

He pointed to a personal experience with an unnamed CEO exec calling him “more as John Quinones,” referring to the Hispanic ABC News reporter.
