    I don't recall anyone giving Mel much lattitude. Most of the people I know were disgusted by his rant. However as far as I know Mel isn't an anchor on a leading cable news network.

    On ther other hand Beck called our president a "racist" with no repercussions from FOX whatsoever.

    nah, you're right Gibson was just a star, director with more recognition than Sanchez could ever hope to garner.....


    On ther other hand Beck called our president a "racist" with no repercussions from FOX whatsoever.
    And later apologized for several times on several different shows. See, that's the problem with you libs, is that when it is one of your own that shows racism well it should only be a blurb in the news and enough of that. But when it is a conservative that you don't like, not even displaying any racism, but merely trying to figure out who the beloved one is, well then, we should imprison him, right?

They were talking about Jon Stewart who is Jewish and Rick Sanchez was talking about minorities that he feels Jon Stewart looks down on and so the host notes that Jon Stewart is Jewish sparking the comment from Sanchez.



    Well, the President of CNN who just left was definitely Jewish. I wouldn't know about his replacement. I can't find any clear specifics on the following three: Laurie Goldberg: Executive Profile & Biography - BusinessWeek, Mitch Gelman: Executive Profile & Biography - BusinessWeek, and Chris Cramer: Executive Profile & Biography - BusinessWeek.
    Where I get lost in all this is, why does their religion even matter??

    Well, when talking about them being able to identify with Hispanics as a mistreated minority it matters a lot. Remember, Sanchez isn't the one who brought it up. The host of the radio show brought up that Stewart was Jewish as a way of saying "well he can understand what you went through Rick" and Rick Sanchez countered by noting that many of his bosses are Jewish and that is the same in much of the news media. Hence, equating the disadvantaged position of Hispanics in society with the position of Jews in society is just ridiculous.

    So you are saying is because some Jewish people have been sucessful that they never had to face discrimination. Or that they have not used this as a crutch, just as Asian Americans have not used it as a crutch. Just knew to suceed they had to be better than their competition to overcome that discrimination. Why do many stars change their name, as Stewart did. His original name is very Jewish sounding, if it is such an advantage why change it?

    Given that the rant was racist, he'd fit much better over at FauxNews.

    Yes, I agree. Racism is idiotic, which is why FauxNews specializes in it. It appeals to their core viewers.

    Took the liberal bait hook, line, and sinker, I see.
