[Ed Note Update: Mediaite reports Sanchez has been fired by CNN.]
Hypersensitive doofus and CNN Anchor Rick Sanchez had a “moment” on Pete Dominick’s Stand Up! satellite radio show yesterday.
Wait, let me rephrase.
By “moment,” I mean he went flying off the rails, performing the clumsiest swan dive EVAR into a mile-deep ravine, screaming anti-Semitic, bigoted, self-righteous “woe is me” bullshit all the way down to the bottom, where he landed with a sickening thud to little or no applause.
First, Sanchez started out expressing an anecdote from his own experience, when someone who was “top brass” at CNN told Sanchez to his face that he saw Sanchez as “more as John Quiñones,” referring to the Hispanic ABC News reporter. Sanchez’s example was an illustration that the problem of racism in the media business goes further than many expect, enveloping “not just the Right,” but also “elite, Northeast establishment liberals” that “deep down, when they look at a guy like me, they see a guy automatically who belongs in the second tier, and not the top tier.”
As per usual, it’s the “elite, Northeast establishment liberals” to blame for that chip on Sanchez’s shoulder. And you know what that’s code for, right? Oh, yes, you know:
“I think to some extent Jon Stewart and [Stephen] Colbert are the same way. I think Jon Stewart’s a bigot.“
Ex-squeeze me? Jon Stewart is a bigot? That’s why half of his fake news team is made up of people of color? Oh, wait. Sanchez means Jon Stuart Liebowitz, right? Yes, yes he does.
When Pete suggested Jews (such as Stewart) have at least some sense of what it’s like to be an oppressed minority, Sanchez seemed to make the claim that Jews run CNN and the news business in general and that Stewart thus did not in fact know what it was like to feel the sting of prejudice.
“Yeah,” Sanchez snickered sarcastically at the idea that Jews are as much minorities as Latinos in the US.
…I’m telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they — the people in this country who are Jewish — are an oppressed minority? Yeah. [sarcastically]
Tell my secretary to cancel the breakfast Illuminati/Rothschilds meeting, my 10:00 a.m. with the Jewelers and Diamond Dealers’ Association, lunch at the World Bank, and that game of squash with “the Jew-run media”. [cont’d.]
These idiots never grow weary of blaming their own professional or personal shortcomings on other people. Sure, Jon Stewart calls Sanchez out for his vapidity and inconsequential reportage. It’s what he does for a living. It has nothing to do with the fact he was bar mitzvahed. I would politely suggest to Sanchez that if one doesn’t want to subject oneself to the crosshairs of comedians (MORE JEWS!) and media critics, then don’t get a job reading the news. Badly. (See video above.)
And really, it seems to me that Sanchez is doing Hispanics a real disservice when he asserts that they can’t get ahead because of some secret cabal of Jews plotting their professional second-class citizenship. Play much golf with that wedge, Mr. Sanchez?
But I suspect that at the root of all this chest-beating and mantle-rending, Sanchez might be feeling a wee bit guilty for being exceedingly well paid for a job that he . . . well, let’s face it . . . a job he secretly knows he just isn’t that good at.
“That’s what happens when you watch yourself on his show every day, and all they ever do is call you stupid.”
Ummm…truth is the ultimate defense, Rick. It has nothing to do with media ownership, political leaning, OR religion.
Now if you’ll excuse me, this Jew has to take a call from a shadowy organization of money lenders. We need to discuss usurious interest rates.
