BREAKING: Rick Sanchez fired from CNN

CNN statement: “Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.“

Sanchez did not host his show today. Brooke Baldwin stood in, though the show was still technically called “Rick’s List.” Moving forward, CNN will now run “CNN Newsroom” from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Sanchez has been under fire since appearing Thursday on a satellite radio show hosted by Pete Dominick. Sanchez told Dominick that he believed Jon Stewart was a “bigot” — and then went on to suggest that he believed CNN was run by Jews.

  1. So happy to see the blog on here, I am a student on school, sometimes, I like to search on the Internet, Today, I am a luck dog, I find here. it is a good place.

    Clearly, anyone making a generalized comment about CNN like Sanchez did has to be considered either dumb or imbalanced. Either way, CNN has made the sensible move. I am sure there has to someone out there that can replace Sanchez……as long as he/she is not Jewish!………..joking for those of you on the racist side of the equation.

    Maybe CNN fired after they found out that he is a Muslim in disguise. Good job, CNN. I would have done it myself a long time ago. He is too opinionated for me. If I were making Rick’s last List, Lou Dobbs would be number 10, and Sanchez would be #1.

  6. What difference does it make if they were run by Jews or not? If a person can recognize a profit, then that is Christian in a hard way. Lighten up; it is better than a world run by a rouge culture that has little in civilized timelines or book sense to the workings of recorded events of gains and losses. A liar will not pay out on investment, a Jew is known for honoring the principle. I am a Christian existentialist – I understand the church is a loser.
    The Jews were the first hour workers, the Christians were the 11th, take your penny and know the difference between heaven and hell. The only adult sin is having sex with someone in Hell when you are over thirty (The law of diminishing returns).
    I like Rick and if I had a publishing empire, you have a job.
