Rick Sanchez continued to apologize for his remarks about Jon Stewart and Jews last week on Good Morning America today. George Stephanopoulos got the first interview with Mr. Sanchez since he was fired. “It’s tough. I screwed up, George,” Mr. Sanchez said.
Mr. Sanchez continued to attribute his remarks on the radio on fatigue. “I was tired. I’d been working 14-hours days for like two and a half months. I was doing three shows. I was exhausted. It was right after the air. My daughter had a softball game that I desperately wanted to go to, and I was a little impatient,” he continued.
“I went in there with a chip on my shoulder and I was a little bit angry,” Mr. Sanchez added later. “If you look at the landscape right now in our media, in primetime, there’s not a single Hispanic, there’s not a single African-American.”
Mr. Sanchez also showed the cover of his book, Conventional Idiocy.
