10/04/2010 - 15:15 ||
Rick Sanchez was unceremoniously fired from CNN over the weekend for inflammatory comments he made about both The Daily Show host Jon Stewart, and media ownership.
During a recent appearance on the SiriusXM radio, Stand Up! With Pete Dominick, Sanchez went on a rant in which he called Jon Stewart a "bigot" and made claims about Jews controlling the media.
"The people in this country who are Jewish—are an oppressed minority? Yeah," The Cuban-American reporter scoffed sarcastically.
"I'm telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart," continued Sanchez, "A lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart."
CNN immediately fired Sanchez, releasing a statement that read: "Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well."
