Rick Sanchez does not like Jon Stewart at all. He also has no clue what the word "bigot" means. Allow us to explain.
The CNN anchor appeared today on the Sirius radio show Stand Up! with Pete Dominick. Asked about Stewart, who is in the news these days for his planned Rally to Restore Sanity, Sanchez replied simply: "I think Jon Stewart’s a bigot."
Could you elaborate, Rick?
"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."
Okay. Thanks for that bio. But you do understand that one must be bigoted against a certain group, right? Keep explaining yourself, please: Who is Stewart biased against?“Everybody else who’s not like him," Sanchez replied, adding that The Daily Show host only surrounds himself with people that share his point of view, apparently failing to watch Stewart's interview this week with Fox News anchor Bill O'Reilly.
In the end, Sanchez said he just "doesn't respect" Stewart, which is perfectly within his rights. But he might wanna find a dictionary and look up the word "bigoted" versus the word "opinionated."
Oh, Sanchez also responded to Dominick's point about Stewart understanding hardships because he's Jewish by pretty much saying Jews control the media:
"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? Yeah [right]."
There you go, Rick! Now there's an example of bigotry! You're learning.
** UPDATE: Sanchez has been fired from CNN.
