Apologies Won't Help Fired CNN Host Rick Sanchez!

| Filed under: Jon Stewart

apologies not helping rick sanchez find a job

Although Rick Sanchez apologized for his offensive rant last week, it isn't enough to get him a job at Fox News or MSNBC because they are "not interested."

And we don't blame them! After calling Jon Stewart "a bigot," accusing CNN execs of discriminating against him and impling that Jews run the media industry, he's in deep shiz.

Sanchez said:

"On October 4th, I had a very good conversation with Jon Stewart, and I had the opportunity to apologize for my inartful comments from last week. I sincerely extend this apology to anyone else whom I may have offended.

As Jon was kind enough to note in his show Monday night, I am very much opposed to hate and intolerance, in any form, and I have frequently spoken out against prejudice. Despite what my tired and mangled words may have implied, they were never intended to suggest any sort of narrow-mindedness and should never have been made.

In the aftermath of these comments, CNN and I have decided to part ways. However, I want to go on record to say that I have nothing but the highest regard for CNN and for my six wonderful years with them. I appreciate every opportunity that they have given me, and it has been a wonderful experience working for them. I have tremendous respect for everyone there, and I know that they feel the same about me. There are no hard feelings – just excitement about a new future of opportunities.

I look forward to my next step with great anticipation.

In the meantime, I will continue to promote my book, Conventional Idiocy, in the hopes of broadening the discussion to get a better understanding between all Americans, regardless of race, creed or religion."

Yikes! He'll be lucky to sell five copies!

    Didn't he used to have an alcohol problem? Maybe he was hitting the sauce again. That would be a shame if that is what happened. He doesn't have enough venom, cleavage or leg for Fox and he doesn't toe the line enough for MSNBC. He's screwed for sure.

    I love how you pull on your clit while looking at photos of Sarah Palin and then squirt nasty puss*y juices all over the place.

    Re: Wild-Guitar – Fuck you, you stupid fucking liberal. I know you're gay or a tranny and it's super fucking curious that you used the word pu$$y in this post then used the c word in another post. Sounds like you are one of those shitty gays like Mario. Have fun this November when the Dems lose both houses of Congress and your lil Barry Obama turns into a lame duck one-termer. BTW, isn't Barry Obama against gay marriage? Yeppers. Will that stop you from whacking off to pics of Barry? Probably not

    More and more people who aren't PC are loosing their jobs and careers. Freedom of speech means you can say something even terribly offensive to almost everyone. If we allow corporations to ruin careers every time people working for them offend, we will have lost our rite to free speech. Free speech means saying something YOU don't like. It means you can safely say something that OFFENDS you and keep their job without fear. Loosen up people. Let others speak - even when what they say is dumb. Lets' say everyone can say 10 separate dumb things before their career is ruined.

    Whether you like Rick Sanchez or not, he is a journalist, he deserves more credit than Jon Steward, a comic who makes a living by being a clown. Why should a journalist apologize to a clown? If Rick should apologize to anyone, he should apologize to his boss, not to a comedian. Firing Rick only validates his theory. In any case, CNN's best days are behind it. What serious news program would hire Eliot Spitzer? Google him, a former governor who resigned in disgrace after using taxpayer money to pay for outrageous prostitute? if this isn't scraping the bottom of the barrel, I don't know what is.
