Sanchez Sorry For Saying Jews Own The Media

Rick Sanchez

Former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez has personally apologized to Daily Show host Jon Stewart for calling him a “bigot” last week, and has gone on a mea culpa media tour to say sorry for his comments about Jews owning the media.

News that Sanchez had apologized to Stewart came from a Facebook post made by Sanchez’s wife, Suzanne, reported Breaking News Hound on October 4. The former CNN anchor explained that he had “exhaustion from working 14 hr days for 2 mo. straight,” while Stewart needled him for being “thin skinned,” she wrote.

That was followed up by an apology statement from Sanchez himself on Wednesday, where he called his Satellite Radio comments “inartful,” “tired and mangled” words that he said “were never intended to suggest any sort of narrow-mindedness and should never have been made.”

Sanchez then went on morning television news show Good Morning America Friday to apologize yet again and explain himself to the public.

“I was feeling a little bit put out, and I was feeling a little sensitve, and I was looking at the landscape…and I externalized the problem and I put it on Jon Stewart’s shoulders, and I was wrong to do that,” Sanchez explained, stressing that he had not meant for his comments about Jews owning the media to be taken as “anti-Semitic.”

Sanchez also appeared on the Imus in the Morning talk radio show on Friday.

“I screwed up,” Sanchez told Bernard McGurk, who has also fired from media jobs in the past for racially-charged statements. “The fact of the matter is, we need to get better at communicating with each other instead of pointing fingers at each other or else we’re not going to get anywhere.”

Stewart gave Sanchez a good ribbing on his Daily Show on Monday, but ended his segment by saying that he does not think Sanchez is anti-Semitic.

  • If the President had said that "jews run the media" not one person would do anything about that. But if a white guy says that………

  • he is a bigot, and they do!

  • where do i know this name from? oh yeah he killed a guy with his car and slandered rush limbaugh.

    still wont apologize to rush.

    (welcome back brothers).

  • Correction, Rick Sanchez was under the influence THEN he killed a guy with his car… however, it was just some homeless guy, no biggie! Rick moved onto bigger things, like CNN. In September of 2007 he attacked (opps, I mean Interviewed) me about video's my sister and I had on YouTube that exposed Jews and the Media. Mr. Sanchez called us 'racist' and 'bigoted' and took our video's out of context. Gee, the same BIG Media Jew that we named in our video is now responsible for Mr. Sanchez's unemployment dilemma… how does free speech feel now Rick?

  • Most of us are mentally trapped to think Jewish. Actually, it is safe to say that virtually every mainstream publication or or other type of media organ is "nothing more than a screen to present chosen views." The great battle over the last century has been a battle for the mind of the Western peoples, i.e., non-Jewish Euros. The chosen won it by acquiring control over essentially the complete mainstream news, information, education and entertainment media of every type, and using that control to infuse and disseminate their message, agenda and worldview, their way of thinking, or rather the way they want us to think. Since at least the 1960s this campaign has been effectively complete. Since then they have shaped and controlled the minds of all but a seeming few of us in varying degree with almost no opposition or competition from any alternative worldview. So now most of us are mentally trapped in the box the chosen have made for us, which we have lived in all our lives. Only a few have managed to avoid it or escape it, or to even sometimes see outside of it, and so actually "think outside of the (Jewish) box."

    What happened to Oliver Stone is a good case study. The Wall Street Journal reported this past summer that Stone said that “public opinion was focused on the Holocaust because of ‘Jewish domination of the media.’” Stone also said that the Jews “stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f—– up United States foreign policy for years.”

    Like so many others before him, Stone groveled: “In trying to make a broader historical point about the range of atrocities the Germans committed against many people, I made a clumsy association about the Holocaust, for which I am sorry and I regret. Jews obviously do not control media or any other industry.”

    Joe Sobran who died this past week had this to say about Jewish media power:

    “Jewish control of the major media in the media age makes the enforced silence both paradoxical and paralyzing. Survival in public life requires that you know all about it, but never refer to it. A hypocritical etiquette forces us to pretend that the Jews are powerless victims; and if you don’t respect their victimhood, they’ll destroy you. It’s a phenomenal display not of wickedness, really, but of fierce ethnocentrism, a sort of furtive racial superpatriotism.”

    In 1996, reprinted in the May 27th issue of the New York Times, by Ari Shavit, an Israeli columnist describing his feelings on the killings of a hundred civilians in a military skirmish in southern Lebanon. Shavit wrote:

    “We killed them out of a certain naive hubris. Believing with absolute certitude that now, with the White House, the Senate, and much of the American media in our hands, the lives of others do not count as much as our own.”

    PS: An antisemite condemns people for being Jews, I am not an antisemite.

  • Francisco Hidalgo

    I had selected CNN as the more balanced cable news statiion. Rick was released too easily and for an unworthy reason. I'm switching to MSNBC, then I'll follow Rick wherever he ends up. This won't help CNN with its competitive standing. CNN can't do a decent job of documenting Latinos in America, then letting their best Latino go for offending a group that really is not a vulnerable minority in America.

  • Where are the real people? Those who will stand firm by what they believe in NO MATTER WHAT.

  • @Francisco Hidalgo: Saying that Rick Sanchez was fired for offending a group that really is not a vulnerable minority in America the pot calling the kettle black, maricon!!!!

  • I mean whether you consider it a negative thing or not, look at this handy list, straight from a Jewish news blog/site, definitely NOT some sort of podunk white power site:

    Read that and tell me that Jews do not dominate the industry. I'm not saying it's a conspiracy or even a negative or positive thing because it's hard to know, really, without knowing the histories and politics of each individual, but it certainly is conspicuous that an ethnic group that comprises something like 1.5% of the population of this country is so overrepresented in such an influential industry.

    I mean these are just the facts, folks. Why should this guy even be apologizing? "I'm sorry I spoke accurately about the demographics of a particular industry on national television".

  • Who cares if they dominate it…if someone else wants to break past it they just need to move forward with that intention. Also anyone that has lived in LA as long as my familly knows that the statement is true. So what? So make your own space, Rick did.


    We're everywhere, but thanks for the apology. Perhaps we'll hire you back someday! LOL

  • American Jews make up only 2% of the population of America. Yet: 46% make over $100,000 per year, they make up 15% of the U.S. Senate, 13% of the U.S. House of Representatives, 67% of members of the Board of the Federal reserve, 33% of the U.S. Supreme Court. Media: Just taking CNN only, 55% of corporate officers for TBS, which owns CNN, are Jewish. On air, Larry King, John King, Howard Kurtz, Eliot Slpitzer, Jeffrey Toobin, Paula Zahn, etc.. Rick Sanchez has nothing to apologize for.

    Furthermore, the 2007 Vanity Fair 100 Most Powerful People in the World list was over 50% Jewish (remember, they are less than 2% of the population). In response to the list, Joseph Aarons, the editor of the Chicago Jewish News commented, "Talk about us being accepted into this society, talk about us having power in this society".

    In addition, the film industry is completely dominated by Jewish Americans. See the 2008 article by L.A. Times journalist Joel Stein entitled “Who runs Hollywood? C'mon”.
