Let me point out the Rick didnt mention Jews. It was the other guy who made the connection to Jews. And at the end, Rick changed the word from "bigot" to "prejudicial" and "uninformed."
But I thought Rick was totally off his rocker condemning Jon because of his background. Everybody grows up with a "background." You cant tell someone, you cant talk about anything up what was in your own background.
It's obvious Rick is mad at Jon cuz Jon said something about Rick (anybody know what?) and was striking back at Jon...and it ended up hurting Rick more.
Rick will end up on Fox.
EDIT: Ok, Jon's video is here: http://voices.washingtonpost.com/tvblog/2010/10/cnn-fires-rick-sanchez-after-r.html?hpid=artslot
Personally, I never had a problem with Rick. It's not like he mispronounces the vowels thruout the broadcast and hurts your ears. He grew up here and speaks English perfectly.
