    CNN host Rick Sanchez fired after Jon Stewart rant

    CNN anchor Rick Sanchez was fired Friday by the news network after he went on a tirade during a radio interview calling Jon Stewart a “bigot” and accusing the "elite, Northeast establishment liberals” of labeling him as “second-tier” because of his Cuban-American background, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

    “Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company," the statement from CNN said. "We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well," it added.

    Doesn't this boob know that the only place to rant like he does is on MSNBC? I mean I wonder if they will cast him in Olberman's place when Olberman refuses to leave the bathtub? hahahahahaha!

    Sanchez was a guy who would talk all day, yap yap yap, and not say anything.

    No doubt, not too different from the likes of Olberman, Maddow, Hannity, or Limbaugh.

    Cool. Now I have some reason to watch again. His twitter mania, along with the rest of the station's fascination with new media was partly why I turned away from that station.

    I like John Stewart and watch it daily (heh) he is funny and entertaining. But the constant Jewish stuff gets old. Kinda tired of it. I don't really care what religion or race yah are John. Shuddup about it already. My interest in your show is actually deteriorating because of this. Get more diverse comedy writers will yah?

    With that said, don't really care for Rick at all. I think he is worthless. This decision doesn't affect me in the slightest. But it does show that Rick watches Stewart's show. lol

    Re: CNN host Rick Sanchez fired after Jon Stewart rant

    i'm pleasantly suprised some of you DO know mr sanchez

    as a public school teacher who enjoys 4 months paid vacation a year i'm able to watch a lot more daytime chat than most

    i know mr sanchez very well---he reminds me much of msnbc's dylan ratigan, both of them are the type of hosts whose questions are often 3 minutes long and stuffed full of self stroking narcissism

    they strike me (pardon me, please) as extremely feminine

    the point---i wonder if sanchez would have been so summarily dispatched if he weren't so tediously dull and boring (it might appear ironic to our younger members that hysteria should engender ennui as a response)

    if more than a couple dp members and me were actually watching sanchez salivate would he have been so swiftly axed?

    i guess we'll never know

    His firing probably had more to do with what he said about the owners of CNN than it did about Stewart himself.

    I always thought he was a dick and I'm glad he's gone.

    Far-left and far-right are a waste of space.

    Yeah, he said the truth about who runs CNN. I mean honestly, the former President of CNN who just left like two weeks ago was Jewish and looking at the board of directors there seem to be a few others who are Jewish. Sanchez got fired because he pissed off some of his Jewish bosses.
