Late last week, CNN anchor Rick Sanchez was being interviewed on the radio about whatever one interviews a CNN anchor about. Funny things that happen in the makeup chair? Teleprompter idiosyncrasies? During the interview, though, Rick Sanchez said that he thinks “Jon Stewart is a bigot.” Sure. Whatever. I’m not sure we’re all on the same page about what the word “bigot” means, but fine. It’s like they always say: words are in the mouths of the beholders. But after saying that Jon Stewart was a bigot, Rick Sanchez said that “everybody that runs CNN is a lot like Stewart.” Bigots? He must mean that everybody that runs CNN is a “bigot” like Stewart because surely, SURELY, even the most virulent neo-Nazi knows to keep certain opinions to himself in the year 2010 when he is employed as a News Journalist. Oh wait, no. Concerned that he wasn’t being too on the nose enough, Sanchez added: “to imply that somehow they, the people in this country who are Jewish, are an oppressed minority? Yeah.” OH BOY HERE WE GO. Thank you, Rick Sanchez, for making absolutely certain that there was no lingering doubt about your aggressive anti-Semitism. It was touch and go there for awhile, but you definitely set the record straight. (Sidenote: really with the Jew-run media thing? At the very least, you would think that anti-Semitism would have GROWN UP at a certain point. Our technology can create lifelike dinosaurs in the Jurassic Park movie, but we’re still talking about Jew-run media?) Needless to say, CNN fired Rick Sanchez.
But all of that happened on Friday when the Daily Show does not tape. Last night, Jon Stewart finally had the opportunity to air his response:
Bite the curb, Rick Sanchez. (Via GotchaMedia.)
