    CNN fired newscaster Rick Sanchez on Friday, a day after he called Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show" a "bigot" and suggested that Jews run CNN and "all the other" networks.

    The host of "Rick's List" made the comments Thursday during an interview on the satellite radio show "Stand Up! With Pete Dominick." Sanchez complained that Stewart was prejudiced against those who disagree with his "white liberal establishment point of view" and scoffed at the idea that Jews were "an oppressed minority".

    Well, I don't know anything about this situation but "Jews" (and I use that word VERY loosely) are NOT an oppressed minority, quite the opposite, actually.

    Yeah, and also:

    The haste with which he was fired, makes sanchez's case about who runs
    the media. What is also odd, is how eliot spitzer can land at cnn gig after his
    publicized involvement with prostitutes as then governor of ny state.
