We're still waiting for ex-CNN anchor Rick Sanchez to issue a statement about his recent firing. But Jon Stewart spoke on the issue last night. Did he issue a five-page statement poignantly denouncing prejudice, or make a joke?
Duh, he made a joke. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Stewart briefly joked about Sanchez, who was fired on Friday after calling Stewart a bigot and saying Jews run the media, during Comedy Central's Night of Too Many Stars.
In talking about how people should donate for autism education, for which the show raises money, Stewart said: "If you went on radio and said the Jews control the media... you may want to hold on to your money."
But if Sanchez was right about the Jews, Stewart also suggested, "All he has to do is apologize to us, and we'll hire him back.
Countdown to Sanchez appearing on The Daily Show in ten... nine... eight...
