Jon Stewart Fires Back At Rick Sanchez!

| Filed under: Jon StewartDavid Letterman

At Comedy Central's "Night of Too Many Stars," on Saturday night, Jon Stewart shot back at Rick Sanchez's "bigot" comments, saying, "If you went on the radio and said the Jews control the media…you may want to hold on to your money."

Then Stewart added that all Sanchez has to do "is apologize to us, and we'll hire him back."

Other celebs like David Letterman and Tom Brokaw also addressed the controversy, with Letterman making a surprise appearance and joking that he was in the city, "helping Rick Sanchez clean out his office."

LOLs.

The benefit will air on Comedy Central Oct. 21. We'll definitely be watching that.

    Welome to OUR world, Mr. Rick Sanchez. It's not easy being PC 24 - 7 is it?



  2. 2

    they are both terrible people



  3. 3

    wait and see. sanchez will be moving to fox which was always a better fit for him anyway…



  4. 4

    Rick Sanchez can keep my attention….I can't follow Stewart's rants at all. I am sure Sanchez will find a better fit. This big whoops will probably help him.



  5. 5

    jon stewart is an asshole

    I actually liked Rick Sanchez for a while but soon enough I saw that he was an egotistical buffoon. Sorry, big fucking deal you used to be Latino. You were American, Rick. You were paid HUGE BUCKS to entertain me in a news capacity Rick. You had guests who I wanted to hear that they had to say but never got to hear that because you talked over everyone, as if your opinion was gospel. It wasn't. You lose Rick. Buh Bye.

    hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee-hee

    Oh no, the Jews don't control the media at all.
    And they don't monitor the media for negative press about them or Israel.
    Riiiight.

    There are 14 million Jews in the world and 1 billion Muslims. Yet you hardly ever see the latter represented in films/books etc.



  9. 9

    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 freaking 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.



  10. 10

    Jon Stewart is a pompous ass and Sanchez went too far.

  12. 12

    SO BASICALLY MOST OF THIS BLOG'S READERS ARE ANTI-SEMETIC PEOPLE…
    What does it change for you that Jewish people are there or there? I am truly offended and chocked by what I am reading here!! Did you guys ever loose a job because you weren't Jewish? Yeah I didn't think so… You are narrow minded and haters.



  13. 13

    It's always nice to see how antisemitism can be expressed with fake names on a gossip blog… You are just non-educated people. I feel bad for your poor, miserable existence. To hate like that you must have crappy jobs with crappy pay and crappy lives… Seriously I feel bad for you. Hang in there!!



  14. 14

    I am a hispanic woman, and I never liked Rick Sanchez. He takes everything so personal, he cannot give news without his personal twist because he always have a ship, a monkey ,or whatever on his shoulder.He needs big time therapy, get over it !!! Rick you are not the type of person for a news show!Why this was not address before maybe CNN gave him chance. Por favor retirate con dignidad, y espero no verte jamas en los medios noticiosos!



  15. 15

    Perez you should have better control on your website, all these comments are appalling!



  16. 16

    I still don't get why he was fired. What is so racist about what he said? He doesn't agree that Jews are a minority. Big deal! How is that racist? It's an opinion! It's like if I said most migrant farm workers are hispanic. It's not racist, it's a fact. Most media head honchos are Jews. And? That's racist how? Jon Stewart is a dick. That's a fact as well. CNN sucks now anyway.



  17. 17

    The website has too many tea baggers



  18. 18

    HE SHOULD HAVE TO APOLOGIZE NO MATTER IF HE GETS HIRED BACK OR NOT. JUST LIKE AFRICAN AMERICANS, THE LATINOS ARE PRONE TO HIDE UNDER THE "RACISM"CARD. THE BIGGEST RACISTS IN OUR COUNTRY ARE THE AFRICAN AMERCANS AND LATINOS. OF COURSE THIS WOULD EXCLUDE SOME. WHERE IS THE NAFTCCF AND THE NCC. —P.S. I THINK SOLEDAD OBRIAN SHOULD GET FIRED NEXT. THEY OBVIOULSY HAVE DEEP ISSUES AND HAVE NO PLACE IN OUR NATIONAL MEDIA.



  19. 19

    I THINK SANCHEZ NEEDS TO APOLOGIZE TO ALL OF US. SOME OF THE BIGGEST RACISTS IN THIS COUNTRY ARE THE LATINOS.



  20. 20

    SOLEDAD OBRIAN SHOULD BE NEXT.



  21. 21

    Rick Sanchez was my favorite on CNN. You don't see Glenn Beck being fired for saying Obama hates White people, or Coulter for the many things she's said. Why are there so FEW hispanics in the media and on TV, given how many are in America, and their viewpoints ARE Democratic overwhelmingly. My guess is Rick hit too close to the bone about THE truth. Who left NBC after running it into the ground? Jeff Zucker, Jewish, those are FACTS.



  22. 22

    funny if this guy worked for fox instead of cnn this story would be all that we would be hearing about right now.oh yeah and if he had viewers too.



  23. 23

    Jon Stewart is a comedic genus and doesn't have a bigoted bone in his body. If you can't follow Jon's humor it means you aren't paying attention to the news and the world around you. Rick Sanchez was a newscaster for CNN and unprofessionally stated that Jewish people run all the networks. Pretty stupid of Sanchez to throw his career away like that.



  24. 24

    Jon Stewart is amazing. Go to his rally that makes fun of Beck the insane geek on Faux news. This asshole Sanchez is a bigot and got what he deserved.



  25. 25

    White people always do this, had it been a white man who said what Sanchez said he wouldn't have fired him but might have just talked shit. @maxsmom our world? do you mean you albinos own America? ha last time I check white people stole America, so saying that it's your guys world is an error on your part, only world that America belongs to is the Natives, stupid bitch.



  26. 26

    Re: lestat – really? how many KKK members are their 8-10 million, compare to the black panthers 2 million? so really? you stupid fuck. You guys are known for being the most racist. Race card? really? so you're speaking for every black person? also do you forget that you guys must always attack us? did you forget? why do people feel the need to follow blacks and hispanics around the store? do you get followed? exactly.. and you could be the one who would probably steal. And last time I checked cards are something you use for stores or to buy things? so race card? And plus according to statistics blacks are more likely to be stopped by a white police officer for nothing? so… please shut the fuck up albino bitch.



  27. 27

    Plus stupid albino bitch everyone knows so many white people were screaming Kanye is racist when Kanye interrupted Taylor so you have nothing to say.



  28. 28

    wait what? you aren't all in an uproar because he got fired perez? isn't he cuban? don't you only care what happens to latinos, gay people, and lady gaga? you always blindly support people without any sort of facts to back you up. bad little cuban perez.



  29. 29

    Re: ActaNonVerba – how about you go on tv or the radio and point out that you think your boss is an asshole and see what happens…..regardless of what he said, you can't talk shit about the people that pay you for the work you do and then expect not to suffer any repercussions

    ^ Tough! And yes, I happen to know someone who DID lose a job because he was not Jewish! He worked for a Jewish owned Ad agency and almost all of the employees were Jewish. They treated him like crap and would never let him take off a day for HIS reigious observance! They made his life hell and eventually fired him and basically said he didn't fit in!

    We're fed up.

    This is too funny. I love it when the real racists like this putz above calls other people racist. OppaNUTTER, you are an idiot. Loser. Hater. Racist.



  36. 36

    Joh Stewart really missed a good opportunity to show us whether he is a gentleman or not. Clearly he likes to beat on a man who is already down, that is not elegant and shows racism. Sanchez only stated a fact that all the world knows bout: the Jews do control the media and not only in the U.S. Beware if you cross them, they will come out with the accusation of anti-semitisism very quickly. This is meant to scare us. I hope Mr. Sanchez doesn't apologize. The people opposing the comments here are all jews and they don't like what they read and they want to censure us. Well tough luck. The jewish lobby is the strongest and scariest in America, when will Americans wake up ?



  37. 37

    Sanchez is a horse's ass.

    Re: St George – So write a book or a blog…noone's stopping you. Go work for Al Jezzera….BTW, You might want to pick up Three Cups of Tea about a man who went into Afghanistan just to help kids get an education and worked side by side with Muslims. It was a NY TImes best seller…guess the Jews missed that one in the mass book burning! whoops! Remember, Jews don't declare a Jihad against you no matter what you anti-semetic stuff you write. Have fun in Europe next week- ooops…there's a terror alert because of Jews there- oh, no wait…not Jews….



  39. 39

    Re: DEBDEB28 – DebDeb- I think it is better to have people express themselves. That way you can see EXACTLY what you are dealing with. Unfortunately, the great majority of prejudice is expressed by people who are extreme under achievers in any arena and need to find someone to blame for their lack of success. However, never take away the value of knowing what is said and who is saying it. That is always a very important thing to know. Never hide your head in the sand, because it's out there whether we like it or not. Wish it were different, though.



  40. 40

    All you haters out there obviously don't watch Jon Stewart- there is no one who jokes more about Jews or being Jewish that he does.



  41. 41

    Re: lestat – I grew up in Miami and Hispanics are some of the funniest, warmest, engaging people I ever met and continue to be friends with. I am white. I judge a person by their individual behaviors- not by a race or religion. Each and every person is different. Sad you have this view.



  42. 42

    Re: Chris_Mc – Who HASN'T worked for an asshole! Great- so that particular set was Jewish- big deal- I worked for a huge firm in NY that broke all the smoking laws- I complained b/c I have terrible allergies. They basically told me to shut it or leave. I stayed b/c I needed the job. Do I hate all smokers? No- I don't care. I had a choice and I stayed. Get real- you can't blame an entire group of people b/c of one experience…or you can. But that is a very sad world view. If you think Muslims are under-represented, make a movie and put it on the web like Ed Burns did with his new movie to reach a greater audience…write a book…make a You Tube video…start a blog…just stop blaming everyone else for something that isn't out there- do it yourself!



  43. 43

    No sympathy for the bigot Sanchez who hates jews and white people



  44. 44

    Re: St GeorgeRe: OppaNuna – Racist biotch….its ok for you to hate white people "albinos as you call us" though, huh? Idiots like you who play the race card on an hourly basis are the cancer on this country.

I guess not, just like the israelis never get tired of mistreating the Palestinians, supported by the jews of America. Shut up, people are starting to wake up in America, it won't be long now before all of America will be against you.

    Re: LazaroSi3333 – I like Jewish people and gays ,they are liberal. Muslims don't treat gays very nicely as governments go. Do you get tired with all this anti-semetic rants. It's really not cool.



  56. 56

    Re: LazaroSi3333 – If you read anything I write, it is against prejudice in general- jewish, black, gay rights, hispanic…but you focus on the jewish- that says more about you than me. My background is Methodist, BTW so I guess your Jewdar is broken. You are simply an anti-semite. I am not. Simple.



  57. 57

    Re: LazaroSi3333 – PS: In history, people like me always have to stand up to people like you. I bet your folks in your family had slaves or belonged to the KKK. Wecome to America. If you don't like Jews, shut up and put up- move to Lebanon and become part of Hamas. Otherwise, get a life and stop crying like the baby you are.



  58. 58

    Re: DEBDEB28Re: DEBDEB28Re: DEBDEB28 – The list speaks for itself. I know its hard for you to accept, but if you actually look at the list, you will see that the list of banking families are predominately European. In other words the control of the currency in the United States and the power has been given to London, The Queen, Monarchs, Lords, etc. The House of Windsor, House of Guleph. When we get an audit if the Fed you will be crying and most likely we will see what what these banking families have been doing on the sly with the dollar printing press (printing money for themselves and their friends and families). This agreement was illegal in 1913 and it is illegal now. They are intentionally bringing down the US dollar to create a new world reserve currency out of Europe. Then ROthschild doesnt care what gets audited. Behold the criminals!
