CNN's anti-semite: Update: Sanchez fired

Speaking on Pete Dominick's talk radio show, CNN anchor Rick Sanchez, a Cuban-American, complained about John Stewart and other Jews who "run" all the news networks. From Pete Dominick's blog:

When Pete [Dominick] suggested Jews (such as [Comedy Central's John] Stewart) have at least some sense of what it’s like to be an oppressed minority, Sanchez seemed to make the claim that Jews run CNN and the news business in general and that Stewart thus did not in fact know what it was like to feel the sting of prejudice.

“Yeah,” Sanchez snickered sarcastically at the idea that Jews are as much minorities as Latinos in the US.

Very powerless people… [snickers] He’s such a minority, I mean, you know [sarcastically]… Please, what are you kidding? … I’m telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart, and to imply that somehow they — the people in this country who are Jewish — are an oppressed minority? Yeah. [sarcastically]

That’s right, CNN anchor Rick Sanchez basically suggested that Jews have run the media.

Hat tip: GatewayPundit, Politico

UPDATE: CNN fires Rick Sanchez.
