“CNN’s Rick Sanchez Refuses To Apologize For Misquoting Rush”

Okay, but will he apologize for murdering that person way back when (that was him, right?)?

Rush said today he would be pursue legal action against those who refuse to retract the bogus quotes. I hope he nails them.

Not only does he not apologize, he states that Limbaugh flatly denies the quote, then goes on to say, [paraphrase]”nevertheless, there are many other quotes by him that members of the African-American community find offensive”. So, he actually pours fuel on the fire by dredging up other so-called “quotes” that have not attribution at all.

I don’t know if that was him, but I heard Sanchez raped a little boy once. I can’t remember who told me that, but it’s what I’ve been hearing.

You don’t even need to make anything up about Sanchez. He killed a guy while driving drunk. Nothing made up, just fact.

Not an honorable bone in his body. It’s OK..Rush doesn’t need an apology. We all know Rush and we all know sanchez...I think we know who is the honorable one here.

Does Rick Sanchez have a Wiki page? That needs to be added to his list of accomplishments so people can 'judge' him accordingly. Just like they did with Rush.....

Time for a Lee Atwater Republican to step up.

For Atwater, politics wasn’t personal; it was just about winning by disemboweling your opponent and then desecrating his grave.

These fake journalists need to go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If they want to be entertainers as Rush is then they need to quit pretending to be journalists. (and Rush is a fine entertainer and reader of “news” articles.)

He does and - was surprised to find out it is listed:

On December 10, 1990, Sanchez struck a pedestrian, Jeffrey Smuzinick, with his car on a residential street near Dolphin Stadium after Smuzinick darted into the road.[5] Smuzinick was paralyzed and eventually died in an assisted living facility in 1995.[5][6] Sanchez, who had just left an NFL football game with his father (and left the scene of the accident), was not charged with causing the accident, but was charged with and pleaded no contest to DUI.[5]

Maybe Rush ought to buy that piece of crap cable network while he’s at it. And then shut it down.

I remember hearing that, too. That he lost his law license becasue ofit and turned to CNN for a job. He appearantly raped the kid he was babysitting. His sister’s kid, I think.

I’ve never seen Rick Sanchez on TV, or never listened to him on the radio, but I’ve read about him, and I think he hates white people. I also think CNN hired him to be the token Hispanic. That I may have seen in a blog, but I can’t remember where.

Yes and I hope he sues every one of them for slander and character assassination to the tune of millions of dollars.

This is SERIOUS stuff and RUSH can not afford to not defend himself against these nefarious lies that are directly aimed at destroying his character AND his lively hood. It will be a drop in the bucket for RUSH to spend several million dollars in legal fees defending himself and I have every confidence that he along with his lawyers will be wiping the floor with these RACIST, yes RACIST, thugs.

The people saying these slanderous things are going to pee their pants when they are hit with legal papers from RUSH and his Lawyers.

For that to happen, the republicans need to stop fearing the press. I remember how the media isolated & smeared Atwater & reported his "last words" lamenting how nasty he had been to those poor democrats. All uncorroborated, as usual.

There are plenty of assets the GOP could use to get their word out - many more than were available to Reagan. Whats lacking is the courage, unfortunately.

Rick Sanchez ... I think he hates white people. I also think CNN hired him to be the token Hispanic.

Sanchez is white; very white. He's a Cuban of Spanish parentage. Nevertheless, he could be a self-hating white. The only thing "hispanic" about Sanchez is his name.

You notice how the worst race-baiters tend to be the lighter-skinned blacks. Case in point, Jeremiah Wright.

Yep, they smeared Atwater even after his death.

At least he fought back while he was alive....a beautiful thing to watch. He was the last great campaign warrior, and he knew the left were/are too much of a match for us.

Of course now the MSM are outwardly campaigning against us, along with the others in the war room....academia, Hollywood, Bureaucracy, and almost the Judiciary. The Communists have infiltrated and taken over all these groups...they are lost to us.

The R's SHOULD fear them, they have been ruining lives, livelihoods, careers and reputations for 40 years running.

And they are winning. We have lost millions of voters to the commies.

I would guess there are about 25% of us left.

So we either strike now with what we have...or wait for our natural attrition of forces.

Sorry man, I’ve never seen him, I don’t know him, but from what I’ve read, I’m POSITIVE he’s a Mexican, perhaps even Guatamalan-Irish, with a little Uigher somewhere hiding in the woodpile.

Sanchez won’t apologize for his drunken hit and run that eventually resulted in the man dying.

Al least that is what I heard. What about it Rick?

Sanchez is a human turd who drove drunk and killed a man. He pled guilty and CNN still puts him on the air.

WHat kind of company puts a murderer like Rick "I KILLED A PERSON" Sanchez on TV?

I wouldn’t mind owning the facilities and equipment. Might even keep on some of the support staff. Expect a near 100% turnover in “talent”, however.

Unfortunately there are some in the African-American community who spend the better part of each day being offended. It’s the politics of social grievance, and there are other groups that practice it.

How about the little boy, SANCHEZ?

Get your rocks off SANCHEZ with the LITTLE BOY?

Did the LITTLE BOY put this behind him as well, SANCHEZ?

Sanchez generated controversy on Twitter when he wrote in his account, “do u know how much money i’d make if i’d sold out as hispanic and worked at fox news, r u kidding, one problem, looking in mirror.”[3] In response, Fox News anchor Julie Banderas wrote on Twitter, “As a wise Latina woman, I have no comment other than to say...if I were Rick Sanchez, I wouldn’t look in the mirror, period.” A Fox News spokesman also responded with, “Everyone knows that Rick is an industry joke, he shows that he’s a hack everyday. And he doesn’t have to worry about working at FOX because we only hire talent who have the ability to generate ratings.”[4]
