    Wow, Rick Sanchez was fired by CNN over a radio cast opinion by Rick Sanchez that Jew's run America's Media outlets.

    I have repeatedly heard the same sentiments from a wide range of individuals who I wouldn't all place into the Zionists 'Jew bashers' bigoted phrase they often use to denote anyone that doesn't accept their pro-Israel Apartheid State of mind.

    Rick Sanchez injected a great deal of energy, passion and enthusiasm into his newscasts and I'm certain he'll be missed by many CNN viewers.

    Best wishes Rick on your next assignment.

    Hitchhikers log: I'm curious if anyone in the media is willing to step up and say that the world is now safe from most trannicalleadership we as humans should learn to face each other and come to terms with the daily struggles of past and present getting caught up in the future. The future is OUR gift it is the present.

    I think it is a great loss to individual expressing a commonly held view about media control. I believe that Rick Sanchez unequivocally proved his point after being fired by a factual comment on media ownership. It is also reminiscent of Lou Dobbs being "asked" to move after also expressing commonly held views

    It is unfortunate that CNN once held as a bastion of independent broadcasting has so quickly caved in to outside or internal misguided pressures. Best of luck to Rick, he will be missed a lot. I'll be tunning in more and more to MSNBC

    Did not CNN let D.L. Hughley go, when he made remarks about Republican Party Leader Michael Steele? They also let Lou Dobbs go, because of low ratings. That is the way they do things over there, especially when you make racists or insensitive remarks about a group of people. Maybe he had a little too much to drink. If so he may want to check into rehab, like so many celebrities before him.

    A prank on clementi is taken seriously, sure it cost life and pranksters did not know the results of their actions.

    Police needs to explore even the murder angle, would the partner of clementi or community be involved in homicide or push off the bridge to punish the pranksters.

    Connie Chung was a million times more watched and listened to than Sanchez will ever be. Where were all of you when she was fired? What was she fired for? hint: it wasn't because of any comment she made. Do any of you know?
