Last night on the Daily Show, Jon Stewart responded to CNN Rick Sanchez’s comments last Thursday on sattelite radio that Mr. Stewart is a bigot. Mr. Sanchez also talked about how Jews run the meida, and he was fired the next day by CNN.
Mr. Sanchez accused Mr. Stewart of bigotry, in part, because the Comedy Central anchor often made fun of Mr. Sanchez’s blunders on his show.
“Now I want to clarify something here, we weren’t making fun of Rick Sanchez because of some slight to his ethnicity,” Mr. Stewart said on-air last night. “It’s just that we here see him as kind of a complex television character who is flawed but fascinating to watch every week and we put this whole bit together to kind of demonstrate that point. And then they fired the guy. So doing the whole bit now just seems kind of mean.”
