CNN Discusses Rick Sanchez’s Firing From CNN


By Alex Weprin Comment

CNN’s “Reliable Sources” discussed Rick Sanchez earlier today, with host Howard Kurtz recapping the events that led to his dismissal, followed by a panel discussion about the incident.

The discussion was frank, with one of the panelists saying Sanchez was a “joke,” another saying he was a “blowhard,” followed by a comment saying that Sanchez’s comments cost him any credibility he may have had:

“As an anchor his stock and trade is credibility, your credibility as an anchor depends on your neutrality, no one can watch that guy again and say, that is an objective newsman.”
