This incident with Jon Stewart is where I think what I was feeling got in the way of what I should have done and said and that's why.
I think I'm going to what I'm going through now it was my mistake I screwed up I take full responsibility.
It's not CNN it's Rick Sanchez Rick Sanchez screwed up I went in there with a chip on my shoulder I was a little bit angry.
And look I will be honest with you and I hope you don't mind my saying this but I'm just gonna go ahead and say it.
If you look at the landscape right now in our media.
In prime time there's not a single Hispanic there's not a single African Americans.
I'm in primetime hosting a prime -- show in the united -- it once but she's 20/20 I'm Barbara apart about newscasts in cable news that's true that's fair.
-- -- I'm referring to cable newscasts.
Straight news -- not.
Magazine shows there's not a single Hispanic -- American arsenal African American.
Rick Sanchez appearing on Good Morning America Friday Sanchez a lightning rod for controversy fired from CNN.
For calling Jon Stewart a bigot and implying the media are controlled by Jews The Daily Show host responded earlier in the week.
And -- rear its head just -- like Michelle.
We weren't that great -- But they fired him for making some intemperate statements and some but -- all did you -- I would even sure Sanchez believes what he was -- You know.
Rick Sanchez said as we just heard in that clip that it was his mistake not CNN ST -- that.
Well I hit was CNN that gave him two hours it was the Jewish leadership of it -- and the Jewish editor who gave him.
Two hours to do his thing you know I I kind of liked looking through the tweets.
That which were overwhelmingly hostile to Rick Sanchez I liked it.
Our Fox's own -- -- Levy who said that he is leaving CNN to spend less time with the Jews.
I'd like if you have delayed it that's the way to handle them.
Finally as a few here in the panel wanna thank uncle Rupert for letting me -- come here and sit you know that's CNN dumped him pretty quickly after he called Jon Stewart a big idea but I -- we have -- the reason you know well he had made some pretty intemperate remarks about your buddy Rush Limbaugh earlier in my body and some and some remarks that appeared to be racist.
Is there double standard stunt double and I look -- Double standard between what Limbaugh and him now I just it just that CNN let him get away with things for a long time or was this finally I -- well look -- Think this probably at Baxter here we don't know maybe this is that maybe they were looking for an excuse figurative I don't think -- have been fired for and I think that have warned.
But I think it was a severe reaction and less CNN had something some -- reason yeah.
A lot of other things that Sanchez did leading up to this point Pajamas Media pajamas TV put together a montage one of the things that he did.
With say when he was going into -- commercial break.
He put up a picture of the president he said will be right black.
And he got away with that so this is a man with chronic foot and mouth disease who was given a pass by Joseph Klein outgoing head of CNN.
I don't think this kind of behavior will go on with Ken done he's a very different kind of leader I think I'll take CNN a very different direct.
A B Jon Klein -- kind of I mean look at me loosened me -- that they're Good Morning America that he says my mistake was I've said but I was feeling.
But that was sort of a -- okay so you're -- enough to say what you've been thinking all along well okay with the -- the.
And it was -- that when he elaborated on his comments on Sirius XM radio he actually -- hey I'm for Miami some of my best friends are Jewish we think this.
Don't be quiet -- just talking my partner at Atlantic coast of untimely Geraldo Rivera anybody in the and he was the prime time accurately and exactly that he's on the weekend they'll think I'm sure Rick Sanchez would take it I mean there's not very close and I -- -- I -- I don't see me going I think I -- this.
President had issued in a poster racial on nation.
-- say it's the president's fault I.
-- -- It's Obama what -- -- like that it isn't that what Rick Sanchez did I wasn't thinking clearly was playing the -- inaccurately -- -- Anderson's the ethnic race -- he's clearly angling down to get a job but you know his younger aspect or something.
It did because they listen you got to prove you're not a racist and the best way to do it is my hiring me is it because it I mean did he get hand in part because of the division within team liberal he took on another liberal.
He's -- -- the jacket I now we're gonna get through.
-- bond Jon Stewart and that nobody has yet to us let's be clear it was a completely stupid sluggish.
Anti Semitic rotten thing to say -- -- of all people Jon Stewart who you if you don't agree with him.
Is of decent fair minded funny guy who I thought was enormously generous.
In what he said in response -- I completely predict that Sanchez will be on the Stewart show.
Soon enough and that's -- -- watch.
-- Also in media notes this -- -- Howard Kurtz jumping ship from the Washington Post yeah heading for the Daily Beast yes I mean that's very interesting in terms of all the trends we've been talking about on this show.
From print to.
You know the electronic media but what's really interesting is that he remains -- several commentators pointed out a walking conflict of interest.
Because now instead of writing for the Washington Post.
And appearing on CNN he's going to be appearing on CNN talking about the Daily Beast so we have not eliminated the conflict here not at all all right time for another break but first if you come across a story that you think -- media bias.
