Never heard of this guy until yesterday. I think he was fired more for the comments about CNN (his employer) than towards Jon Stewart. Jon does indeed suck, I will agree with him there. But he needs to realize that all of the Jews in the media enabled him to get a job in the first place. Dumbass.

LOL Sanchez has always been a shitty reporter. This, the attention his firing is getting, is probably the highlight of his career.

I don't know about his past career, but he was a news show host, different from a reporter. He was alright, a little too passionate about crap though. ie: melodrama.

I think it's also kind of funny they think he really thinks this way on his show. They pay writers for the material he says on TV. I have no idea how much of it is actually his personal point of view.

I would say from watching the daily show that his views are pointed out seriously and not the jokes he tells so you can tell from his interviews what he really thinks.

like this for example.

While i think Jon Stewart is funny and cool, i dont understand why that guy should be fired for what he said. He was expressing his opinion wich he should be entitled to.
I wonder what the justification for the firing will be, cause i cant see anything on his contract saying something like " you cant give your opinion about other shows". He did take back the "bigot" comment and was trying to explain what he meant to the other guy that didnt try to understand what he was trying to say and just felt offended himself.

I'm guessing Jon is gonna have a field day on this though.

You have his contract? OR maybe you are Mr. Sanchez!

Basically he put down jewish people... most people in the tv/movie industry is Jewish.

The one thing to never do is put down Jewish people, they are in high places!

Here is one Jew you don't want to mess with!

The only thing I don't like about Colbert is the pronunciation of his name. It is absolutely unacceptable. I always call him KOL-BERT
