Media outlets all over the nation have been reporting that Rick Sanchez was fired from his two hour “Rick’s List” on CNN for calling Jon Stewart a bigot, but really he was fired for insulting the rest of the bosses at CNN.
Rick did call Jon Stewart a bigot along with saying that Stewart hated everyone that is not like him. If you ever watch Stewart’s “The Daily Show”, you may agree with Sanchez, but that is not why CNN fired Sanchez the very next day after his interview.
He was fired because he said that everyone at CNN was just like Stewart. It is difficult to say exactly what he meant by that. Does he mean that everyone is a bigot? Or possibly that everyone at CNN hates everyone that is not like them? Or, as the media outlets like to say, did he mean that everyone is Jewish at CNN and they hate everyone that is not like them. We will never know for sure, but one thing is sure, he wasn’t fired for calling Jon Stewart a bigot.
Rick Sanchez has a reputation for sitting on the fence when it comes to politics although he does appear very liberal most of the time. He should have known better than to attack his fellow libs in power such as the top brass at CNN. Not to mention the fact that he had a sweet two hour show. Why would he bite the hand that feeds him so generously? Obviously just a slip up on his part.
He must of been thinking that he was talking to an old friend and he could cut lose, who knows.
Unfortunately for the rest of us, this situation has made Jon Stewart’s head grow ten times bigger because he actually thinks that Sanchez was fired because of him. Now he is attacking Sanchez with semi funny jokes at every venue. Milk it while you can Stewart, your cow will soon run dry.
Stewart’s “The Daily Show” is hardly even funny anymore. Jon seems to think that he has his own real news program and he treats it as such. With his extreme liberal views and lack of jokes it is surprising that the show is still on the air. Jon, you do know that it is a comedy show, right?
May be this situation will help Rick Sanchez get over his liberal views, after all they are bad for the conscience. Once he sees the light he can probably get a job over at Fox News, he is handsome enough.
