Apparently everyone's favorite Cuban-American reporter got fired on Thursday after a radio appearance on "Standup with Pete Dominick". During the interview, Sanchez repeatedly called Jon Stewart of the Daily Show a bigot, without coming up with any justification for his claim. Apparently Sanchez didn't take too kindly to Stewart after he made Rick the butt of several jokes over the years, and he was going to let this radio host know it. The radio jockey pushed Rick on several occasions for him to justify the bigot statement with a specific example to no avail. When Sanchez was unable to come up with any real facts to back his claims, he used the old fallback that his father was a Cuban immigrant who worked his entire life, so Stewart simply can't know where hes coming from. Let's be honest, Sanchez was simply backed into a corner, caught red-handed making a stupid, unsubstantiated claim and the whole "my childhood isn't comparable to his" comment was just a cop-out.
Sanchez is simply showing his own ignorance in thinking that HE is the only one that could have possibly had a childhood like him, or had a father that worked his entire life, which is a complete load of crap. By that extension of logic, his Cuban father who worked his entire life somehow increases HIS character more than someone like me whose own father worked six days a week up to the day he died. Rick is just pulling the "poor me" card and obviously the management at CNN called him on his BS.
One has to wonder if Rick Sanchez really thinks that Jon Stewart is a bigot, or is simply reverting back to the instincts of the average grade school bully. "That skinny Jewish kid from across the playground called me a meat-head so I'm going to hate him for the rest of my life", give me a break Rick Sanchez!
