Rick Sanchez has been fired from CNN this evening. Sanchez was apparently canned for calling Jon Stewart a “bigot” on his radio show yesterday and implying that the media is run by ‘powerful Jews.’
Here is a short transcript of Sanchez’s discussion with Pete Dominick, a radio personality:
Dominick: How is [Stewart] a bigot?
Sanchez: I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I’m so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine.
Dominick: What group is he bigoted towards?
Sanchez: Everybody else who’s not like him. Look at his show, I mean, what does he surround himself with?
Later in the discussion, Sanchez began talking about Jewish people:
I’m telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, 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.
Here is the full audio of the interview. Caution, Rick Sanchez sounds absolutely crazy:
