CNN Fires Rick Sanchez

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.”

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

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.

  1. This is unfolding to be an interesting story – It's now looking as though Rick didn't actually get fired – he may have just decided that CNN wasn't the place for him anymore and he just left.

    We'll investigate more in the coming days.
