Yikes!

Rick Sanchez goes with the “Jewish control the media” canard.

Brian Lowry sums up what got Sanchez so upset: These clips from Jon Stewart, including the clip below.

CNN has yet to comment, and while his comments have created an uproar, they’ve also shown that he hasn’t grasped the key for cable news personalities who find themselves skewered endlessly by Stewart: Play along. Bill O’Reilly has been a far greater target for far longer, yet he’s been a guest on Stewart’s show (including an appearance on Monday.) It’s one thing to have a feud and play it for all the publicity it is worth, but it’s another to take it personally.

Update: CNN has commented, and they are nipping it in the bud. “Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We
thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.“
