Jon Stewart Goes Easy on Rick Sanchez, Mocks the Media

by at . Comments

Those tuning in to The Daily Show last night, hoping to see Jon Stewart slam Rick Sanchez for going off on a Jewish-controlled media, may have been disappointed.

The host instead turned his humorous venom on the media itself.

Stewart mocked reputable news outlets that claimed he "destroyed" Sanchez at an autism charity event over the weekend (for the record, THG simply said he "poked fun" at the former CNN anchor), saying: "Any headline from that benefit should have read, 'Comedians raise $3 million for autism while demonstrating incredible self-restraint about Rick Sanchez.'"

Watch the segment below, as Stewart clearly understands that Sanchez's rant was simply the result of a frustrated man, knowing he was about to get fired...

@Paul E. Tooley: Can you elaborate? In what way did Stewart defame Sanchez?

I have never had respect for Jon Stewart. It isn't acceptable to defame any person. Rick Sanchez also gave me reason to not appreciate his personna on the media. However, I feel he was dealt with unfairly by Jon Stewart. Will a defamation suite be brought against Stewart by Sanchez?
