It appears Rick Sanchez is looking to make a comeback.
‘Friends of Rick Sanchez’ (or, presumably Rick Sanchez) have launched a website in support of the former CNN anchor who lost his job in September after calling Jon Stewart a bigot on a radio show and essentially declaring that Jews run the media (“I’m telling you that everybody who runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other networks are a lot like Stewart. And to imply that somehow they, the people in this country who are Jewish, are an oppressed minority?”)
According to the ‘about us’ page “This site has been put up by Rick’s friends, people who have cared about him for many years.”

Also: “We created this site because we don’t believe a man’s life should be judged by one misconstrued moment, one interview, one soundbite taken out of context.”Which is fair. Even Stewart appeared skeptical that Sanchez’s remarks were reflective of the person: “I’m not even sure Sanchez believes what he’s saying.” And in this news cycle four months is more than enough time to allow for a redemptive comeback.
To drive the point home — or at least create a few good headlines — Sanchez will be appearing with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach (“America’s Rabbi”) next week to have a “public dialogue.”
