Rick Sanchez Fiasco in Context

Michel Martin offers the most balanced discussion and analysis that I have heard so far on the firing of Rick Sanchez.

Not a fan of Sanchez so the story of his departure really didn't grab my attention. He was never all that impressive to me as a journalist....not the brightest star in the sky. I am not particularly impressed with CNN either... they have become lazy as a news organization...and are morphing into more of a Fox-light in some ways. But Sanchez was stupid to call Stewart a bigot without backing it up very well. And he screwed up big time for bringing his CNN bosses into the discussion, and for going anywhere near the term "Jews".
