Good. I finally get to participate in our favorite game show called, What’s Your Beef. My beef is how CNN and HLN are slowing becoming worse than TMZ. Whaaaaa? Yeah. I said it. TMZ at least has the courtesy to tell the world exactly what they are: A CELEBRITY GOSSIP outlet. CNN and HLN are no longer the go-to networks for the hard news. (Yeah, because I’m SUCH a hard-news kinda gal.) What I’m referring to is the OPINIONATED, eye-rolling, snotty-tone of voice the “anchors” give while reading off their telepromters. Oh, and let’s not even discuss the fact that an ousted, hooker-loving New York governor has just been given his own show on CNN. I can’t. I just can’t right now.
So. Rick Sanchez (who actually looks like his name should be Chip McWasperson, from Greenwich, Connecticut) called Jon Stewart a BIGOT the other day. He actually attempted to ream Jon a new a-hole because Jon makes fun of him–apparently Rick doesn’t get the joke. Jon thinks you’re an IDIOT, Rick. Not a CUBAN idiot. Big difference.
“Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well,’ a CNN statement said.
Appearing on “Stand Up with Pete Dominick” Thursday, Sanchez called Jon Stewart a “bigot” and said that CNN and the other networks are all run by Jewish people.
Discussing Stewart with radio host Pete Dominick, Sanchez said that the “Daily Show” host has a limited worldview, and called him a “bigot.”
The conversation began with Sanchez decrying “elite, Northeast establishment liberals” who “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.
“I think to some extent Jon Stewart and [Stephen] Colbert are the same way. I think Jon Stewart’s a bigot,” he said. “I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I’m so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine.”
Y’all can listen to Señor Sanchez’s dirty and quite frankly HIGHLY inappropriate remarks in the video up there. I think he’s just butt-hurt and can’t take a joke.
See you on JTV, Rick.
