Rick Sanchez Fired: The Write-Ups & the Colleague Supporting Sanchez


By Chris Ariens Comment

So far, no comment from Rick Sanchez or from Jon Stewart on yesterday’s dismissal of the CNN anchor for controversial comments Sanchez made in a radio interview Thursday. As the story was unfolding Friday, Sanchez was scheduled to be at a book-signing at the CNN Center in Atlanta. It’s not clear if that book signing happened.

ABC’s Good Morning America produced a story this morning; MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow made a passing reference to Sanchez on her show last night and Sanchez’s dismissal came up a few times on FNC’s “Red Eye” overnight.

And at least one of his former colleagues is throwing her support behind Sanchez.
