    Thank God, I never liked that guy and his loud mouth. Apparently he called Jon Stewart a bigot on a radio talk show the day before.

    Serves him right. It doesn't matter what color your skin is, anyone could be racist.

    "Sanchez called out Comedy Central host Jon Stewart as a "bigot" for mocking him, and complained that Jews — like Stewart — don't face discrimination. He also suggested that CNN, and perhaps the media industry more broadly, is run by Jews and elitists who look down on Hispanics like himself."

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


    But I thought Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox said that what you say on your own time when not on the job is protected under the First Amendment and you can't be fired because of it.

    Yes.
    When I'm having a bad day, it helps to see that there are stupider people than me.
    Fox has that effect, too.

    Yeah, I really like Don. He's like the black male version of Diane Sawyer. Smooth, confident, understated, nice. icon_biggrin.gif

    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.

    southbeach1500 saidBy the way, why doesn't Jon Leibowitz use his real name?


    Why should he? He's been Jon Stewart for over 20 years. That's the name people know him by.

    You might as well ask why Woody Allen doesn't go back to being Allan Stewart Konigsberg. Again, why should he?

    His middle name is Stuart, so it's not as if Stewart came out of nowhere. And he wouldn't be the first public persona to not use his given name.

    That's because Rick Sanchez was a news anchor in your neck of the woods, Paulie....Channel 4, I believe.

    I don't care for CNN that much, as I prefer MSNBC.

    Always thought Rick Sanchez was a grandstander and completely full of himself. Never liked him or his show.

    I use to live in Miami for 17-years and he use to be the anchor of WSVN channel 7 for years. I never like him. His attitude was cocky and stupid and not to mentioned uber ridiculous. While better anchors got replaced, señor Sanchez never was.

    I'm not happy because he got fired for what he said. After all, he did point out something very obvious that most people what to avoid or ignore.

    Is this list a coincidence? No. But talking about it will anger them and get you fired and black Listed until you humiliate yourself with a public apology for their pleasure.

    You can exercise your right to free speech in this country until you touch this subject then all hell break loose and you are racist, Anti-semitic a monster even if you didn't mentioned anything offensive.

    And the list goes on and on... This is the truth. There's no reason to get angry about it or make a big deal of it when someone says so.

    The jews control the media? You don't say....icon_rolleyes.gif

    My first taste of him was through the link posted earlier...this dude is an idiot. It's different when the guy who is being bullied is for all intents and purposes a bully himself. More importantly...when you act as retardedly as he did in the clips I've seen of him, you can't be mad at someone like Jon Stewart for pointing that out.

    What makes this even more comical is him going on a public radio show and spouting spiteful comments at a specific group of people....Don Imus anyone? It's like someone with a public Facebook profile posting about how horrible their job and boss is..and then crying about being fired cause their boss found out...you bitch about your job in private like the rest of us moron. Celebrities....

    Oh OK I misunderstood your smiley. I thought you were one of those who want to deny these facts. I just brought it up because there are still people who will not believe that.

    It doesn't matter how many names you list of specific Jewish people in high positions at media companies. The statement "The Jews control the media" is still a bigoted statement and is unacceptable. It implies some sort of monolithic entity, and then everyone Jewish is tainted by association with it. It's just like saying "the gays" control Broadway, or "the blacks" control the music industry.

    I'm Jewish, and I don't control the media. I don't even get invited to any secret meetings.

    That's what it is. You can call it whatever you wish, The list and facts are real.

    Just like stating that all Muslims are terrorist right?icon_rolleyes.gif

    The End. I'm not gonna keep arguing about this any further.
