Apparently he has anti Semitic tendencies. I am shocked he seemed like a down to earth kinda guy...guess not.

I just listened to both those audio clips in that link. I'm not sure what he got fired for.

I guess the PC police at CNN don't like some criticizing the left.

I won't miss him. All he did was give 15 minutes of news and talk about people's tweets for the other 45 minutes.

I don't watch CNN much, but have never enjoyed him very much at all.

I grew up watching Rick Sanchez and by all accounts he has always been a massive tool.

While I disagree with what he said in the recordings, I didn't find it offensive at all.

My father was a anchor in Miami for a while and knows Rick personally. He used to have dinner at my house on occasion years ago. He had a lot of enemies in Miami and was not easy to get along with, the talk goes. Lots of people were happy when he left South Florida, but never expected him to last long at the national level. Good to see he proved them all right.

What he had as a 'Regular Guy' smoothness, he wasted in grossly non-cerebral thinking. He was the poster child for stating the obvious.

The 'Taser Segment' was his apogee.
