Even though Rick Sanchez has apologized both publicly and in private to Jon Stewart, both MSNBC and Fox News are not considering picking him up after he was fired from CNN. Spokespeople at both MSNBC and Fox told Hunter Walker that they are not interested in Mr. Sanchez at all.
Mr. Sanchez issued a public apology earlier today. “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,” he wrote.
Mr. Sanchez also said that he was leaving on excellent terms with CNN. “I have tremendous respect for everyone there, and I know that they feel the same about me,” he wrote. “There are no hard feelings – just excitement about a new future of opportunities.” It’s an interesting way to frame getting fired from the network.
Mr. Sanchez’s wife Suzanne echoed the explanation that Mr. Sanchez was tired on her Facebook page earlier this week.
rick feels horrible that in an effort to make a broader point about the media, his exhaustion from working 14 hr days for 2 mo. straight, caused him to mangle his thought process inartfully.
Mrs. Sanchez also posted on her wall on September 20th that she and Mr. Sanchez recently closed on a lakefront home. “[L]ooking forward to having easy access to our boat and taking it out on weekends,” she wrote. And maybe during the week now too!
