Jon Stewart Addresses the Rick Sanchez Controversy And Then Salvages The Guy's Career
Here's the segment in full via Mediate:
It's nice to see that the whole nation knows what Miami New Times has been preaching since Sanchez's days ushering in the "If it bleeds, its leads" era of WSVN: the man is a blubbering idiot who unleashes a bunch of hot air, yet doesn't seem to have a lot of wind in his own sails.
Though, we also must agree with Stewart that in his heart of hearts, Sanchez is probably not a hateful anti-Semite. He just got caught up in a stream of his own gibberish fueled by bitterness towards Stewart and certain CNN executives he's felt belittled by.
In any event, Stewarts gracious "unbust"-ing of Sanchez greatly enhances the chances that the man may be able to salvage his career somehow and move beyond this episode.
Now, we're left with two new questions: 1) When will Sanchez himself break his silence? and 2) What's his next career move?
