Rick Sanchez - RIP

CNN anchorman Rick Sanchez was fired today from his network after Pete Dominick's satellite radio interview labeled Jon Stewart a minority:

RS: "C'mon. How is he a minority?"

PD: "He's Jewish."

RS: "Yeah, very powerless people." [laughs]

PD: "Whoa."

RS: "You're such a minority. I mean, you know. Please. What? Are you kidding?"

PD: "You're telling me that -- "

RS: "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 oppressed minorities? Yeah."

Revolting comment! Bye Rick. Anyhow, your reports ran too right-wing for my taste.
