Rick Sanchez' Jon Stewart a Bigot comment causes CNN firing? Rick Sanchez, the CNN personality has been fired. On a Sirius radio broadcast, Sanchez called Jon Stewart a Bigot. Now, I have to give Jon Stewart props because he's a comedian and he still gives Glenn Beck respect where respect is due. However, although Sanchez's statements may have been offensive to some do they really warrant getting fired?
In the Sirius radio address which lead to the dismissal of the CNN personality, he not only called Jon Stewart a Bigot, he also said that the media industry is ran by Jews.
Well you might say "so what" well, he meant it in a derogatory way. There's no room in this world, particularly the liberal media, for racial slurs against any ethnic background.

Keith Olbermann from MSNBC is in his glory right now. He even mocked his rival's termination.
It seems to me as if Rick didn't like that Jon Stewart oftentimes made fun of him on his comedy show. Perhaps he didn't understand the Satirical nature of the show at hand. Sanchez's rant about Stewart ultimately lead to his dismissal.
Needless to say the (former) CNN contributor won't be speaking at the Jon Stewart/Stephen Colbert rallies later this month...
