Rick Sanchez has been fired from CNN following his controversial comments on a radio show Thursday.

“Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well,’ a CNN statement said.

Sanchez did not appear on the air Friday.

Appearing on “Stand Up with Pete Dominick” Thursday, Sanchez called Jon Stewart a “bigot” and said that CNN and the other networks are all run by Jewish people.

Discussing Stewart with radio host Pete Dominick, Sanchez said that the “Daily Show” host has a limited worldview, and called him a “bigot.”

The conversation began with Sanchez decrying “elite, Northeast establishment liberals” who “deep down, when they look at a guy like me, they see a guy automatically who belongs in the second tier, and not the top tier.

“I think to some extent Jon Stewart and [Stephen] Colbert are the same way. I think Jon Stewart’s a bigot,” he said. “I think he looks at the world through, his mom, who was a school teacher, and his dad, who was a physicist or something like that. Great, I’m so happy that he grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could ever imagine.”

  1. Disapointed Rick October 4, 2010

    Very well, to begin with, I am kind of sick to my tummy hearing that Sanchez could produce these kinds of comments to begin with nonetheless I am also saddened by the fact that I use to be a viewer of his show every day. Currently there is a hole in my afternoon television schedule and an angry emotion that somebody I thought I understood is a complete jerk.
