CNN Anchor Sanchez Fired for Hinting Jews Control Media
CNN fired a star anchorman, Rick Sanchez, after Sanchez let loose against Comedy Central's “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart on Pete Dominick's Sirius radio show.
“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].”

While Stewart's show bills itself as a “fake news” show, a 2007 survey by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press found that a sizable portion of the American populace relies on it as a news source. Sixteen percent of Americans said they regularly watched "The Daily Show" or its Comedy Central spin-off, "The Colbert Report." Those figures are comparable to the percentage of Americans who regularly view major news programs like Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" (17%) and PBS' "NewsHour with Jim Lehrer" (14%).
