Rick Sanchez Jon Stewart

Rick Sanchez Jon Stewart

Rick Sanchez landed himself in hot water on Friday by stating on comedian Pete Dominick's satellite radio show, that Jon Stewart is a "bigot" and everyone that runs The Daily Show is "a lot like stewart". This ultimately saw him getting fired from the CNN network and the company issuing the statement: "Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well."

After calling Stewart a bigot, Sanchez, who is frequently mocked on 'The Daily Show,' continued his tirade. Even when Dominick pointed out that Stewart is Jewish and a minority too, Sanchez kept going, saying, "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."

Sanchez appeared on Dominick's radio show as part of a tour promoting his book, 'Conventional Idiocy.' He hasn't responded to requests for comment about the interview or his dismissal.
