Rick Sanchez Fired – Rick Sanchez CNN Twitter Account Not Updated

Rick Sanchez Fired – Rick Sanchez CNN Twitter Account Not Updated – Rich Sanchez has been fired from CNN after he made a number of inappropriate comments during a recent radio show appearance. He was appearing on his radio talk show that is called “Rick’s List.” While on the program he called “The Daily Show’s” Jon Stewart a “bigot” and took shots at a number of other political analysts and news anchors.

Almost immediately after the comments took place, MSNBC analysts took to Twitter where he said that he expected that Sanchez would be fired for making the comments. CNN didn’t want to blow the incident out of proportion, but did decide to relieve Rick of his duties at the station.

They wished him well in their goodbye statement and thanked him for his loyal service to the company. This was not the first time that Sanchez had made brash comments in a public forum and had been reprimanded for it. Once he even referred to President Barack Obama as “cotton-picking.”

CNN has not named a replacement for Sanchez, who quickly retracted his statement and corrected himself, instead calling Stewart “prejudiced.” He should have known better, really. After the previous problems that he has had with CNN and some of the comments that he has made on his program, he had to have known that he was walking on thin ice. It will be interesting to see where Sanchez goes next. FOX News would seemingly make a good home for the right winged political analysts, but there have been no reports of interest from FOX.

    Ofcourse CNN would rather put Eliot Spitzer on the air ?

    Uh, Rick Sanchez is about as “right wing” Nancy Pelosi…

    I am so damn sick of this politically correct bullsh*t. Puhleez. You can’t say anything negative against the Muslims, the Blacks, the Mexicans, the Jews, or whatever group who might be the PC flavor of the month. Most anchors and journalists feel they have to kiss a*s, compromise their self worth, and “conform” to keep their jobs. It is a fact that the Jews have actors, talk show hosts, journalists and news anchors like Rick Sanchez under their thumb. This has been a known fact for years!! Wake up people and start thinking for yourselves instead of allowing a*shole networks like CNN to tell you what opinions to have, how to interpret the news, and how and what to think about any news story that “they” choose to sensationalize. Rick Sanchez probably just felt like he had enough and could not help himself this day to finally say it like it is. He also said what most people are made afraid to say due to fear of retribution from these Jewish a*sholes. The same Jews that you find in every corrupt crevice of our infrastructure. It is a fact that the Jews own and control the media, they own and control Hollywood, and they own and control and manipulate Government. The US relations with Israel is the prime example of this Jewish Govt. control. Since they have nothing over me, I can say what Rick Sanchez and all these other oppressed journalists wish they could say without getting fired. When choosing a doctor, a dentist, a plumber, an electrician, a dry-cleaner, a political candidate, etc. etc. I would rather choose a monkey first before choosing to do business with a Jew.

    When I first heard Rick S was fired, I was happy, but after reading all of the CNN article and then listening to the tape, I was dumbfounded and ticked that CNN would behave this way. How can we find out who actually pulled the plug. I’m curious as to what his or her nationality is? I think it’s a disgrace and pathetic, immature attempt at dealing with Sanchez. Even FOX wouldn’t act so low.

    CNN has fired a lot of decent people in the last year or two. No wonder their ratings are the lowest. Those left behind must be fearing for their own careers given the quick-to-fire management technique. I too saw Rick Sanchez as the bright light on CNN. I don’t for the life of me believe he is anti-Semitic. Easily hurt perhaps. Stewart and Sanchez are both my favorites these days. Now I am bored with CNN.
    Rick, attend the October 30 event in DC with Jon.
    You both have much in common.

    Without Rick Sanchez, CNN becomes a 24-hr Ken and Barbie show, with the grand exception of Fareed Zakaria.

    I like Jon Stewart, but it boggles the mind that the folks at CNN want to coddle someone who has made a living belittling public figures. If they think he can’t take it, their actions are more insulting than Rick’s.

    Good for Rick speaking out. Of course he will pay the price and have a hell of time getting hired in the media business now. So many people are sick of the Jew control of the media but very few have the guts to speak out.

    I think you’re a liitle paranoid – holy cow – I think if you look, you`ll find that every religion is part of every business, industry and government dept. Now, if there`s even one Jewish person, you`ll say `see!` but if there are 100 Christians, muslims or Orthodox whatevers, you won`t say a word! Is George Bush Jewish. No. Is Obama Jewish. No. Were they both presidents, i.e. in charge. Get a grip.

    I’m sorry that CNN chose to remove Rick from the air! I enjoyed his show. I suppose Cooper will be next! It’s so painful to watch his nonsense each night.

    I am so happy that Sanchez was fired! I certainly do not think that he was fired because he is right wing…he isn’t. And, he probably was not fired because of what he may of said about jews. He is simply the worst news reporter I have ever seen. I stopped counting the number of gross errors in reporting he would make in virtually every segment, and eventually would not watch CNN anymore. Thank God Rick is gone. Good bye Fox, hello CNN again!!

    CNN made a grave mistake firing Rick Sanchez who was the only reporter in CNN who spoke his mind; rest are micky mouse. I am sick and tired of Anderson Cooper. Why don’t you take him down for a change. CNN should apologize to Rick and bring him back. The reason is too trivial for him to let go.

    lol please people since when was Ted Turner a Jew? He isnt and never has been Jewish. Though it is true Jews are a wealthy and influential minority they are not the only ones. Cubans are actually pretty similar. Cuban exiles are quite wealthy and many were upper class elites that came to the States when Castro took over. They are as influential as AIPAC when it comes to U.S. Cuban relations. There are succesful Jews in business, in politics, in hollywood and in medicine, literature etc. It has nothing to do with ‘control’ they just have a very strong emphasis on education and community (who can blame them?) and they have a good network of charities and connections to help fellow Jews. Nothing wrong with any of this.

    I’m no fan of Rick Sanchez, however, what he said is true. Say anything at all that is deemed the least bit anti-semetic, and you can kiss your job good-by. Just go ask White House reporter Helen Thomas.

    Smart move on CNN to fire Sanchez, the remarks were inappropriate but Sanchez is a poor reporter. He was dislike in South Florida, never made a good showing on FOX, and bored millions on CNN with his stupid questions. Forget that he killed someone from a DUI in Florida but what comes around goes around, good luck Sanchez, I think Walmart might be hiring a greeter somewhere out there. Lay off the bottle so there is not another incident.

    Harsh, but true. Zionist Jews see all humans around them who are not Jewish as cattle. How many movies about the Holocaust, Hitler, etc. do you think Hollywood puts out every year for you to pity them and forget their Zionist agenda? Plenty. The USA looks the other way when the Jews get their way in Palestine, doing the same or worse than what was done to them by the Nazis. Watch out, there’s a Zionist snake probably slithering just around the corner of your street without you even knowing about it. Why do you think Jonathan Stuart Leibowitz changed his name to Jon Stewart?

    CNN ratings are now, and have been, the WORST.. Rick is not the brightest bulb in the house.. CNN was dopey to use his bad taste remarks as an excuse to fire him.
    But… “don’t mess with Texas”…

    CNN can fire him for what he says despite his rights to say what he wants, it is not Ricks first time ’round the word vomit ride. He just cannot do impromptu work without putting his foot in his mouth. Calling Stewart a bigot after he calls the president cotton picking is kind of laughable. Again he has the right to say what he wants about Stewart or the president etc but his employer certainly does not have to put up with it. Note CNN pulled the comment section off the RS fired report lol.

    Jewish people are, pound for pound, the most well off people in the United States. A great percentage are college educated and have professional occupations. They are incredibly disproportionately represented in government and the media. what’s the freaking big whoop? Everybody knows this. At worst, these simple facts tend to suggest high achievement and perhaps a bit of nepotism, not too bad really. But, when you fire someone for pointing it out it looks EVIL and oppressive.

    he’s very animated & entertaining… like alton brown on food network… i never considered him not “credible”… unbelievable… he’ll be missed!

    Actually in the beginning CNN fired a Jew Aaron Brown to make room for Rick Sanchez. And Imus was fired for supposedly making an insensitive joke about blacks. So the Jews do not really have that much power in keeping other Jews on the job instead of replacing them with non-jews. And also you can get fired from “on air” job for making racial/ethnic remarks about any race.

    Finally glad to see Rick Sanchez go. The guy for the longest time has been saying some real off the wall comments. Most have been to support illegal immigration (however subtle or indirect those comments may have been) and the takers of our social welfare system. So he pushed it too far, and finally CNN woke up and let him go. Bye Bye Rick, maybe Miami will have you back.

    Rick Sanchez is the worst anchor ever. He was dubbed CNN’s 2nd worst anchor, but I cannot imagine who could be worse than him. Maybe Spanish TV will take him.

  39. Brian G | Oct 5, 2010 | Reply

    I think the guy forgot he wasn’t working at the local Miami TV station with a large Hispanic audience. At times I enjoyed watching his show but didn’t need to be constantly reminded of the mans ethnic background. I found it inappropriate when he would start speaking Spanish to a guest with an English audience. Too much stress on personal issues and not enough of what the general public is interested in hearing.

    Not to mention I heard enough of his sympathetic views on illegal immigration. The vast majority of citizens do not share his views on this subject and are furious with our elected officials who choose to ignore this behind closed doors and jam it down our throats. Take money and votes out of the equation and watch how much easier it would be for those serving us to make the right choices.

    Rick Sanchez was appearing on Pete Dominick’s show on Sirius Radio. The name of Rick’s show was the late and unlamented “Rick’s List.”

    Aaron Brown was fired to make way for the very Caucasian blueblood, Anderson Cooper, around the time of Hurricane Katrina. Anderson was Joe Klein’s Bright Shining Star, as was Rick Sanchez, most recently anchoring 3 hours a day. Doesn’t really sound like they were trying to keep him in the mailroom, does it?
