CNN Fires Rick Sanchez!

We're sorry you lost your 8 p.m. timeslot on CNN to the new Parker Spitzer talk show, Rick, but you really should have practiced some better self control, or ANY at all!

Rick Sanchez flipped out during an interview on Pete Dominick's Sirius XM show, and he lashed out against CNN, as well as Jon Stewart, who regularly makes fun of him.

By the end of the interview, Sanchez had called Stewart a bigot, basically said that CNN is controlled by Jews, and said that CNN passed him over for a promotion because he's Latino.

Wow. That's just a lot of really big issues to address all at once.

Here are some of the ill-advised statements that he made during this interview…

First, against CNN:

"It's not just the right that does this. 'Cause I've known a lot of elite, Northeast establishment liberals that may not use this as a business model, but deep down, when they look at a guy like me, they look at a … they see a guy automatically who belongs in the second tier and not the top tier … White folks usually don't see it, but we do, those of us who are minorities … Here, I'll give you my example, it's this, 'You know what, I don't want you anchoring anymore. I really don't see you as an anchor, I see you more as a reporter. I see you more as a Jon Quinones.' You know, the guy on ABC. That's what he told me, he told me he saw me as Jon Quinones. Now, did he not realize that he was telling me, 'when I see you I think of Hispanic reporters?' 'Cause in his mind, I can't be an anchor, an anchor's what you give the high profile white guys."

On Jon Stewart:

"It happens all the time. I think to a certain extent, Jon Stewart and Colbert are the same way. I think Jon Stewart's a bigot … Yeah, I think he's a bigot … I think he looks at the world through his mom who was a schoolteacher and his dad who was a physicist, or something like that.

On Jewish people being a minority:

"Yeah, very powerless people. [laughs] He's such a minority. I mean, you know, please. What are you kidding? 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?"

You dug quite the hole for yourself there, Rick. Good luck getting out of that one!

What do U think about these intense claims by Rick Sanchez?

Update: Sanchez has just been fired!

  1. 1

    He might be mad as hell and shoots off at the mouth, but there is probably at least an ounce of truth in what he said. Watch, he'll be pressured to apologize in one, two days by even those who secretly agree with him. The "oppressed" rules and the rest of us go out of our way to show support and sympathize because we are afraid.



  2. 2

    Is everyone afraid to comment on this? The guy was WRONG. There is a time and a place for everything and he was WRONG, JUST WRONG! I love The Daily Show. John Stewart makes fun of EVERYONE!! Get over it! Yes, Jewish people have been oppressed, and yes Jewish people do run a lot of businesses in this country. Do you know what that tells me??? They are HARD workers that give a damn about their business and their families! BTW, I'm black, and while SOME black people are educated and work hard, we should make Jewish people and EXAMPLE! We need to be about our business and education as well!!!!!



  3. 3

    I listened to this interview live and was somewhat stunned by how overt his was.

    He is lashing out and unfortunatey you are not allowed to tell the truth



  6. 6

    Yea and now he is out of a JOB and he has been fired!!!!!!!!!!



  7. 7

    Absolutely true. Liberals preach equality but live behind private gates and practice otherwise. Look at Clinton who touted public schools yet slipped Chelsea quietly into a D.C. private school. The same for Obama.( Seven ultra lux vacations in less than a year)



  8. 8

    I don't know if I would call jews a marginalised minority in american society, a priviliged minority maybe, a minority maybe but as someone of indian descent, someone of asian descent, I don't think they can empathise with me as a minority.



  9. 9

    What a dope this guy is and of course he got fired. I read a story about Jon Stewart awhile back. Jon talked about his father who up and left he and his mother when he was a young boy. Seems like Sanchez was just assuming what kind of life Stewart had.

    What a jerk.



  10. 10

    how can you not love a guy who uses the most bigoted of comments to accuse another of bigotry. the inability for Sanchez to provide any examples of Stewart's bigotry just makes this so much sweeter



  11. 11

    Billabong, you are just as prejudiced as Rick. Jews are a minority and don't think for a minute they are not treated differently. You make the point when you think other minorities are treated differently except Jews. The ADL dislikes all prejudices and all should be stopped. What do you know about the religion? As a minority work to prevent all discrimination because you know firsthand how wrong it is.



  12. 12

    Wow, talk about bitter. What a douchebag.



  13. 13

    But he speaks the truth !!! No ?!?



  14. 14

    This guy is a hack. I used to try and watch him on CNN, but he is just pathetic. He would try to come of as holier than thou, but just looked and acted like an idiot. He's just a bitter, BAD, news anchor.



  15. 15

    Rick Sanchez has always been a douchebag. Not to mention that the fact that he killed a man while driving drunk a few years ago. My son played football against his son's team when they were little kids and dadddy Rick constantly scratched his balls on the field!!! Gross–goodbye and good riddence…



  16. 16

    What Sanchez has said is the truth. I wish him well!



  17. 17

    Rick Sanchez, asere porque tienes que hablar tanta basura? Ya sabemos que son racistas, no hay nada de nuevo. Muchos de nosotros que somos cubanos y boricuas entendemos que es mejor infiltrarnos poco a poco. Pronto sera nuestro tiempo y se los vamos a meter por el ojo de sus culos. Viva la raza



  18. 18

    ha fucking ha!



  19. 19

    Sounds like an audition for Fox news.



  20. 20

    i didn't find his comments to be bigoted against Jewish people or Stewart.

    what he said what that Jewish people are not minorities or an "underclass" in media and Hollywood . . .and business in general.

    arguably, true …

    no?

    moreover and more importantly . ..

    stewart bashes people all day and every day . . . so someone bashes back and gets fired for it . . .

    this is absurd . . .

    and note I make no other comment on Rick Sanchez or his anchor abilities . . . I barely remember seeing him . . .



  21. 21

    I like CNN just fine and now i will be able to watch it again during the 3-5 hour. SANCHEZ IS AN IDIOT. I tried to like him but he just says one stupid thing after another and constantly interrupts. He also takes forever to hand off a segment to the next person. Good riddance, this guy was such an embarrassment to the network.



  22. 22

    Re: diagia – Hmm, I don't see myself as being prejudical against jews, but lets be honest, this is America and America loves jewish people. I don't think badly of them but, I don't think they suffer the kind of discrimination that other minorities do. Its like, you can't have your cake and eat it too u know?



  23. 23

    I used to cringe every time I watched Rick Sanchez on CNN. He is so utterly stupid, and feels compelled to tell us what he thinks! We don't care! He's the bigot! Lay off Jewish people… go read a book or two on their history!



  24. 24

    Re: Marrakesh – Are you fucking retarded? Do you have any idea how much it would cost to keep the President's children secure at a public school? You want White House security hassling your kids? Fucking idiot!



  25. 25

    Can someone please explain to me how Rick Sanchez a Cuban of European Descent, is a minority? Is he fucking Serious? That's like Charlize Theron Bitching about reparations for Slavery. YOU'RE FUCKING WHITE ASSHOLE!!!



  26. 26

    Only in today's America do you get fired for speaking the truth! Unbelievable!



  27. 27

    some of what he said i agree with



  28. 28

    TELLING THE TRUTH HOW IT IS IN THIS COUNTRY IS AN IMPOSSIBLE THING TO DO.SOMETIMES YOU JUST HAVE TO SHUT UP AND GO WITH THE (JEWS)FLOW..



  29. 29

    when are people going to stop being afraid to stand up to these controlling whinning jews. its sickening. They control everything and as soon as someone makes a comment about a jew they are ruined. Look what they did to Mel Gibson. You can't really think that he was just that unlucky. He was set up by jews so everyone can hate him. its their way. The most hated people!!!



  30. 30

    It was only a matter of time…everyone in South Florida knows what kind of guy Rick Sanchez…he was always a JOKE. Him and Sally Fitz….Couldn't believe CNN would hire this guy in the first place.



  31. 31

    Re: krtmom – @krtmom…I was thinking the same thing. But remember…he had to go home and have a few drinks because he was so upset and nervous about the accident…basically he pulled a "Joe" from Housewives of New Jersey but the sad thing here is a person died as a result…



  32. 32

    The idiot was probably surprised when he got fired.



  33. 33

    Re: Cubiche – ya know what? you're right if you guys succeed with you're "plan" you'll have the country turned into a 3rd world country in no time! that's what you guys do best, destroy anything you come in contact with. seen it with my own eyes plenty of times. lord have mercy, god help us all.



  34. 34

    Rick got screwed. Don't mess with the Jews. Stop giving money to Israel to create ghettos, murder, and steal land. (I love John Stewart, BTW)

  35. rev3 says – reply to this


    35

    LOL!

    he looks italian!



  36. 36

    Is everyone here retarded? He is European descent just like Perez!!! Oh, so because my family came from Spain to the US instead of going to Cuba first they are a minority and I am not???? WTF! Seriously you all are just stupid. Many latinos who bitch about discrimination are as European as me, this shit it just stupid now. Sorry I will go live in Cuba now and have kids so that my kids can pretend to be a minority and bitch about shit like this. This guy also DROVE DRUNK AND KILLED A PEDESTRIAN, how can anyone seriously defend this man. He is lucky to have a decent job after that shit. He shouldn't blame his fake race(hispanic is not a fucking race) on not getting a promotion.



  37. 37

    @Marrakesh

    You are an idiot of major proportions.

    Republicans don't live in gated communities?

    And what the eff are you smoking when you say Clinton sent her daughter to private school? The Presidents daughter should go to a public school? Of course they will go to a private school.

    Seven ultra lux vacations in less than a year? Should he go to the local Motel 6 and hang out the pool in DC or Baltimore?

    Stop watching FOX news you noob. I realize it's the trendy thing among morons like you to bash Obama right now, but who do you think got us into this mess in the first place?



  38. 38

    The nerve of this guy. When accusing others of being racist, he reveals his own racist tendencies. One love ya'll, one day we'll all be grey.



  39. 39

    The interview was available on MSNBC… Amazing.. very angry guy…..He so wants to be caucasian when really all he really is, is a miami chulo



  40. 40

    Re: Fletcher – WELL spoken !!!!



  41. 41

    Re: mscalto – RIGHT ON !!!!! I SO agree with all u say here !!



  42. 42

    What he said about the people "running the networks" is completely true, and the pope is catholic… but i'm still glad he's gone because he was kind of an embarrassment to CNN with his constant gaffs and bumbling ways.



  43. 43

    How does it feel to have power? How does it feel to have power taken away? Karma is a lunch eaten alone. We have time to think about the past and learn from our successes and mistakes.

    There is a new documentary movie out about the whole Sirius Xm story from the beginning to the near bankruptcy. I did not know satellite radio was invented by a TRANSGENDER WOMAN!!! That was Cool. DVD is everywhere but cheaper at the film site: www.stockshockmovie.com

    Re: yadayada_girl
    Wow nice, definitely agree.



  46. 46

    HA! Sanchez claims someone is a bigot by using the most bigoted comments he could think of! Pot, hello! Kettle calling.
    The one people Stewart has any prejudice against is morons and morons with power.

    Sanchez an "oppressed minority"? Really? You had your own show on CNN! You drove expensive cars - granted you drove it drunk but it wasn't exactly an old El Camino with ball fringe around the mirror. Your suits cost more than the "oppressed minority" you claim to be part of. When was the last time you went down to the barrio for some mojitos with your homies?
    This guys comments are a classic example of self hatred - an internalized hipanic-phobia if you will. He sees demons everywhere that oppress him because of his ethnicity. He even claims that he knows what others are thinking when they see him.
    CNN should have fired him long ago - cus his show sucks.



  47. 47

    as i said before, i make no comment on rick sanchez's talent . . . or lack therof . . . frankly, I don't even remember him.

    but I reiterate the point that saying that "Jews are not an oppressed minority" is not a firable offense.

    sorry, it's not . . .

    it's arguable point . . . sure, some make successfully argue that Jews ARE an oppressed minority . . .

    but throwing it out there as a question/point/comment is NOT some offensive gaffe that should result in him being fired. or anyone being fired.

    clearly . . .

    CNN fired him for a slew of other reasons and this supposed gaffe is the sword they used . . .



  48. 48

    Looks like someone wants a job at Fox News.

    and have parties with Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck… you know, the "real" oppressed ones. White AND Christian?!?! where is the justice for them, hmm?!



  49. 49

    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 fucking 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.

    Re: M.t. Dickinson – unbelievable??? what's unbelievable is that in most other countries you would be thrown in jail…or executed… for telling the truth.

    Wow. Nothing like burning a raft of bridges on your way OUT. . . .

  53. T.rex says – reply to this


    53

    The ONLY reason Sanchez had that job in the first place is because of the novelty of his ethnicity, certainly not his ability. How ridiculous that he tries to use that same ethnicity as a crutch when it suits him.

    Stewart made fun of the guy,… but never made fun of his ethnicity. That is where Sanchez dug his own grave. You can't take things racial. There is no need. Sanchez apparently didn't have the ability to knock Stewart down a few pegs without bringing race into it.

    Sanchez got fired for telling the truth. Hopefully he will stand his ground and not apologize to the Jewmeisters.

    Re: mscalto – Thank you so much for saying this! I cannot understand why white spaniards who came to the US via Latin America are considered non-white minorities, but Spaniards and Italians from Europe, who share the same mediterannean ethnic background are considered whites. CRAZINESS!! Also there are plenty of latin jews.

  59. @v@ says – reply to this


    59

    Re: M.t. Dickinson – So true. Rick obviously has baggage from the past, and I can see how that might happen; but the truth is he isn't a minority except in his head, AND he's a looker, (did Stewart call him Gatsby based on his idol looks?) (just look at those perfect teeth)…and he had a plum job. He said some idiotic things back a bit, but was improving and I was starting to like him; but if you're on CNN that sort of sniping would raise some employer eyebrows.



  60. 60

    FYI — Eastern European Jewish people started Hollywood in the 1920s - they were fleeing anti-Semitic Europe during a time where it was acceptable and encouraged to be killed if you were Jewish in parts of Russia. If there is a disproportionate amount of Jewish people in Hollywood, it is because they started this town. Without them, Paris would be the current capital of cinema and we would all be trying to speak French in imitation of our favorite movies.



  61. 61

    Rick Sanchez is the racist. He used to always only those murder cases where a white guy was the perp….NEVER showcasing the more frequent occasions when a minority was.



  62. 62

    Re: diagia – Jews are being KILLED every single day by Muslim fanatics. Jews represent the 2nd biggest amount of hate crime victims, after gays in America.



  63. 63

    Re: M.t. Dickinson – He would never ever classify himself as white!



  64. 64

    Rick Sanchez has been a douche since he used to do prime time news on Channel 7 in Miami countless years ago. He's a self-hating Latino who would trade his soul to the Devil to be white. There might have been a little truth in some of what he said, but he's a dumbass to mouth off like that on the radio—especially about the people who sign his paychecks. He never really belonged on CNN anyway. He's a much better fit for Fox News, and I'm sure that's exactly where he's headed.



  65. 65

    Have you watched your show Rick Sanchez????
    I used to until you turned into such a jerk lately!



  66. 66

    Re: mscalto – THANK YOU!!



  67. 67

    Re: straighticketvoter – You're even dumber than he is aren't you?



  68. 68

    Re: nacholulu – Just because you agree with this fuckhead doesn't mean he's right, it just means you're as ignorant as he is.



  69. 69

    Hah I agree with Rick.
    He probably would've gotten away with it if the didn't use the J-WORD
    which is waaaaay 'worse 'these days



  70. 70

    Rick Sanchez has always been a hack. He is pompous and rude. I don't know why he is so mad being labeled as a reporter - that's what he was when he worked in South Florida. Seems to me that he got a little too big for his britches!



  71. 71

    he is just honest and I think the majority of Americans feels the same way.

    The jewish community use the holocaust, minority, etc as tools to exploit their suffering and it should not be that way.

    I have nothing against jews but I think the power they have over telecomunications in the USA is not a balance one and leads to other ethinic groups to be frustrated and left out.

    The majority of directors of hollywood films, channels are jews.
    Helen Thomas left her pocition after many years after she said, "free Palestine".

    Somothing should be done about this and have a more balance system where EVERYONE and not just the jews have most of it.



  72. 72

    I always changed the channel when this guy came on not cuz he's latino but because he was a loudmouth windbag clown face. However, I agree with what he says. I think a lot of his behavior has (now that's he's bringing this up and it makes sense) an overcompensation for all the racism he's experienced. I actually thought he was part Asian.



  73. 73

    Re: mscalto – I don't think this guys is Spanish, he's Cuban and some cubans are white but most aren't. Perez is white for instance but Sanches is not. It's obvious he has non European ancestry. Also many Spaniard have gypsy and or Moorish ancestry and in this country would be considered Latino.



  74. 74

    Re: Emesa – Spaniards come in all shades and colors. You obviously have not been to spain lately. Galicians like Perez are much whiter than gypsys from Andalucia for example.



  75. 75

    Re: M.t. Dickinson – I think Rick is part Asian. You can tell from his eyes. There are white Cubans like Perez but RIck is not one of them.



  76. 76

    What a jerk. I'm so glad he was fired. He's pathetic, and his behavior in the hit and run was despicable. And he sure as hell looks white to me. But his stupidity was always painful to watch.

    Cubiche: Que ignorante tu eres papito. Hispanos como tu nos da a todos una mala reputacion. And being Hispanic, I can tell you that racism in Latin America is even worse than in the US. Tu lo sabes! Latin Americans imported more African slaves to their hemisphere than Americans and also have later emancipation dates, like Puerto Rico's, which was seven year's later than the US. African Americans in Latin America are the poorest group in Latin America. Cubiche, Eres una racista horrible! Tu no hablas para mi ningun dia! Como Americanos, nosotros somos un monton de razas, estupido, sangano, bruto! Pero en nuestros paises no hay tanto respecto para la ley o justicia. Da gracia a dios que tu vives aqui, sea humilde y respeta a todos. Eso fue lo que mi madre me enseno! Y antes de ser un Hispana, yo soy Americana!

    If Jews control anything, it's cause they worked for it. Nobody has given them didley. And I thought they were the largest recipients of hate crime, … but maybe it is gays? At any rate, if it weren't for the Jews, this world would be a lot less advanced than it is. Yeah Jews! Long live Israel.



  77. 77

    now you see peoples true colors. as a jewish person who grew up with no money and one parent i laugh at all the jew hating. i don't get hookups from other jews. it's everyone's own insecurity. most of this world is christian and catholic and believe in talking snakes and the bible as actual fact. people like that seceretly think the jews killed jesus. honestly most humans are complete morons filled with hate. most people just hate themselves. that's as real is it's gonna get. look at perez he hates on celebrities cause he's jealous and grew up gay and angry. now he's projeecting his own insecurities. not rocket science.

    Yea well he didnt lie, Jews control most of the biggest studios, production companies and media outlets (including the news). To say theyre discriminated against in AMERICA, you really gotta be high on something. Its like if you make fun of a Jew in America you lose your job. Fuck you nigguhs, right wing Christians should light a fire under your asses.

They just keep jabbing at the Christians I'm guessing until they just 'die quickly' ( I LOVE ALAN GRAYSON) or maybe just go and fight another war or two or three until Israel can control everything through the Rothschild's and the House of Windsor of London. Or maybe they can keep influencing new immigration that the red state white males are the devil! I think not. Look who controls the currency! Look whos coming to dinner! Lookie Lookie Lookie!

    85

    Re: Azorean – 1. Italians, Portuguese, Spaniards = Mediterraneans. White Latin Americans (usually) = people of Spanish descent. People of Spanish descent are mediterraneans. I'm of Italian Portuguese descent myself, we are quite mixed here in Europe. Also, THE orginal LATIN people were from Italy. Thats why the Romans spoke Latin and spread it to Spain etc. Its very strange hearing people saying Italians are not Latin people.



  86. 86

    Re: madison20 – Whining Jews? Puh-lease-Jewish people are used to taking shit constantly from closed minded bigots and anti-semites…it takes alot more than that to rattle Jewish people-if Jews controlled the media, none of this would be printed-DUH. People are jealous because Jews traditionally have put education and hard work at the top of their priorities…that is why there are a disproportionate number of Nobel Prize winners that are Jewish. If you are a slacker, that is your problem-stop blaming others and create your own success. Mel Gibson is reviled by people in Hollywood because he is a woman beating, homophobic, racist ASSHOLE. After he said the stuff about Jews YEARS ago, he STILL MADE movies-noone stopped that-it's just that people lost interest because he acts like an imbicile and they DON'T CARE. Mel Gison is a staunch Catholic who CHEATED on his wife, had a baby out of WEDLOCK, got a DIVORCE-all against HIS OWN strict Church rules- no Jews made him do that- he is just a huge hypocrite. Get real and stop blaming Jewish people for People like this who shoot themselves in the foot by acting like out of control morons.



  87. 87

    Re: tania020 – Let's just let Al Jezzera be in charge of the media. Helen Thomas has been prejudice against Jews for decades- everyone knows that. It is not new news. Ot was just beyond the pale of ridiculous that she should say Jews should go back to countries that they do not have roots in, and where generations of people were slaughtered. Her parents are from Lebanon I think- no one was telling her she and her family should go back there. BTW, she tendered her own resignation to Hearst Publications- she was not fired. Perhaps if you did a little more homework, you would not be part of the problem spreading incorrect info. It is amazing that when people are caught being flat out prejudice and hateful towards others, no matter who, that there are those like you who can not fathom taking responsibility for one's actions, or understanding that there are repercussions for one's behavior.

    Rick Sanchez deserved to get fired. He had everything going for him, a great job at CNN but he could not get rid of the huge chip on his shoulder - the fact that he is Latino (with a questionable past - he killed someone in Miami whilst driving drunk many years ago) and is probably pissed off that a Jew like Elliott Spitzer is taking his time spot.
    Rick Sanchez is a small time Miami boy with an interesting past who made it up the ladder in broadcasting and just fucked it all up because he cannot get over himself!
    And of course all Latino men have this macho thing going and the fact the Jon Stewart the Jew "made fun of him" was all too much.
    Rick - you fucked up big time bro!
    P.S. I am Jewish so I can say Jew as often as I like!

    Re: Natanya – Very often when someone "resigns" as in the case of Helen Thomas, they have been convinced that this would be a nice alternative tobe fired! I bet she didn't resign of her own accord…..

    Re: Bugface – True…they were probably allowing her to resign, but I think that when people are upset that she was let go or resigned, they are not aware of the fact that it has been well known that she has always been anti-semetic and was still hired despite that. It was just that she took it way too far, and any organization is allowed to decide who they want representing the face of their company. A person who is very prejudice, whether it be against Jews, Blacks, Latinos etc. may not be a good match for many organizations~ especially one that is supposed to report objective news.

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – Hi Carravaggio! I knew I would get a good comment from you- your Lookie Lookie Lookie make me lol. You need to get appointed to the Reserve Board of Governor's and give them a dose of The Terrible.

    Re: Natanya – Nah, they would have me killed or much worse. Just like they killed John F Kennedy after he tried to break the FED and bring back silver back dollars. Also, speaking on secret societies didnt help much either.

    Re: caravaggio the terrible – CTT: You always have me running to a search engine to look something up!!!! Listened to the speech on secrecy: very interesting…Liked the part, with regards to the press, "From that scrutiny comes understanding, and from that understanding comes support or opposition, and both are necessary."

    Re: Natanya – Natanya were getting played, and we have been played for a very long time. they have people white male christians or agnostics who are the enemy of the people are they have no where NEAR the power you see on that list. But the deeper and most unfortunate part of looking at that list, is that it is NOT a Jewish conspiracy. A collective handful of bloodline types, yes. These bavarian bankers sit in the House of Hanover and operate from London. they are part of and work for the collective Royal Houses of Europe.

    Re: Natanya – Hey, run to a search engine Natanya and look up 'Georgia Guidestones'. Yeah, I'm just fucking crazy.

    Re: Natanya – Also search 'Farrakhan Federal Reserve' on youtube.

    Sanchez would say "this is not a speech, it's a conversation", and he would ramble on, interrupt people all the time, ready to comment before the person would finish, apparently not listening. I tried to watch him, but just couldn't afford to waste my time… I am of Latin descent living in Canada. There are a few excellent people with Latin background working for CNN, and in other areas. Rick is just not qualified for what he was doing at CNN.

    American Jews make up only 2% of the population of America. Yet: they hold 36% of all post-graduate degrees, 46% make over $100,000 per year, they make up 15% of the U.S. Senate, 13% of the U.S. House of Representatives, 67% of members of the Board of the Federeal reserve, 33% of the U.S. Supreme Court. Media: Just taking CNN only, 55% of corporate officers for TBS, which owns CNN, are Jewish. On air, Larry King, John King, Howard Kurtz, Eliot Slpitzer, Joy Behar, Paula Zahn, etc.. Rick Sanchez has nothing to apologize for.
