Rick Sanchez is A Pathetic Moron

On Thursday night, the CNN daytime anchor made an appearance on comedian Pete Dominick’s satellite radio show to discuss his new book Conventional Idiocy. As the discussion turned toward race, Sanchez made one of the most ridiculous comments I have ever heard.

Sanchez, who is Cuban-American, made the argument that as a minority in the media industry, he is viewed by “a lot of elite Northeast establishment liberals” as someone “who belongs in the second tier and not the top tier.” He then went off on one of the worst tangents in the history of the English language equating Jon Stewart to one of those aforementioned establishment liberals.

During Sanchez’s attack on The Daily Show host, he referred to Stewart as a bigot who is “prejudicial against anybody who doesn’t agree with his point of view, which is very much a white liberal establishment point of view.”

But he didn’t stop there. When Dominick attempted to defend Stewart, saying that because Stewart is Jewish he is as much a minority as Sanchez is, Sanchez smugly laughed. “Everybody that runs CNN is a lot like Stewart,” he said. “And a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart. And to imply that somehow they – the people in this country who are Jewish – are an oppressed minority? Yeah.”

The next day, Sanchez did not appear on air. Hours later CNN released the statement, “Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.” I say ‘good riddance’ to this dumbass. If you’ve ever watched Sanchez’s show, you know very well CNN is most definitely not losing out in this decision.
