Skip to comments.The dishonest Rick Sanchez of CNN
Posted on 04/15/2009 1:01:50 PM PDT by sauropod
I was flipping around the dial looking at the coverage of other networks' coverage of the Tea Parties. I happened to catch Rick Sanchez of CNN interviewing a Tea Party organizer.
First thing he did was pick out an objectionable sign and make the guy defend it. The sign had a white hand with dollar bills in it handing them to a black hand and the sign read "I'm not your ATM."
Second thing he did was show an excerpt from a youtube video that was sourced by Huffpo where a guy was talking some crazy stuff and the girl taking the video screamed out "Burn the books."
Now, I happened to hear this discussed on Glenn Beck's show on Monday. Turns out this was at a 9-12 project meeting and the girl was a plant as proved by her other video postings. She was deliberately looking to make the event look kooky.
Beck discussed this in some detail and there was a gentleman that was on the tape asking her if she was sincere in what she was saying. The gentleman also phoned into Beck's show.
I would not have known the background to this if I hadn't been listening to Monday's show. However, I believe that Sanchez did. He said the video has "gone viral."
It is completely scummy and dishonest of Sanchez to pull crap like this. My opinion of him has sunk even lower than previously.
This happened in the 3:00 hour. 'Pod.
I’m going to watch Cavuto and Beck. Will be back after 6 pm EST.
Sanchez is just one more 0bamunist puke, watch carefully when he talks and you’ll see some White House media thug with his arm coming up his neck, working him like the sockpuppet he is.
The black hand could have been Michelle Obama being paid hundreds of thousands for a racist no show job that was eliminated when she became first lady.
Has any other first lady had a history of getting paid off like that?
So, you’re saying he pulled a Dirty Sanchez?
Sanchez is the poor man’s Olbermann.
Conservatives need to learn from this tactic and use it on the libs.
Join their orgs, attend their meetings, play the part and then kill the beast from the inside...
A Cleveland Steamer, perhaps? LOL
God forbid anyone imply that a lot of African Americans receive government assistance. We only have a 60 year history of it and constant agitation for it, constant arguments that it is “owed” etc.
I don’t like the racial symbols either, but please we do have billions upon billions going to people based on race, racial preferences, it is everywhere.
I can show you the Philadelphia standards to get special breaks as a minority owned business, they list every conceivable minority except white European males. And this goes on everywhere democrats rule.
leftwing media searches for the disruptors
We need to make up a new term, like “a St. Louis pizza” in honor of Obama. But I don’t think we’d be able to print the definition here.
His name is actually Rick HitNRun Sanchez
You got that right!
This reminds me of the whole “Kill him!” controversy at one of McCain’s rallies, where it was implied that all Republicans were dangerous racists. For those of us who have seen the sorts of messages and costumes paraded by lefty kooks during protests, then tuned into the nightly news to hear them described as nothing more than concerned citizens, this is yet more proof of the insulting bias of the MSM.
This morning he was on CNN’s spanish service saying that one of the reasons that we were having all these tea parties is that we are all racist. He has no interest in the truth and is one of the reasons we are losing the (legally here) hispanic votes that would naturally go to the more conservative party.
Just got back from the Hartford, CT Tea Party... RaceBannon did a fantastic job as usual "emceeing" the event, and the CT State Police estimated the crowd to be around 5,000!
I called my mother around 12:45pm when the crowd was all pumped up by RaceBannon's chants, and asked her what the local affiliates were showing. She said nothing except Channel 3 (CBS affiliate) is showing a bunch of empty chairs in front of the CT State Capitol. Unbelievable.
When does free speech become hate speech?
When a conservative is speaking.
Telling the truth is “racist”.
RADICAL RIGHT-WING THREAT?
There are currently 926 hate groups, up from 888 last year
And above the text they're showing video of US soldiers in training, and Americans holding and inspecting handguns.
Imagine what people are thinking if they just happen to walk by a TV running MSNBC (ie throughout Rockefeller Center in NYC) right now...
“The sign had a white hand with dollar bills in it handing them to a black hand and the sign read “I’m not your ATM.””
Are not the hands of our black President, Obama, black?
Not to mention, true conservatives don’t base their political views on race but FACTS.
“Are not the hands of our black President, Obama, black?”
That’s what occured to me immediately, that the sign meant to say that the taxpayer is not Obama’s ATM. Since the majority of taxpayers are white and Obama is (half) black, the coloring of the sign is pretty accurate. Seems to me that news organizations shouldn’t read much of anything into the receiving hand being black. Unless it’s more of that “coded” imagery and language I’m always hearing about.
Was it a twin-coiled Cleveland steamer?
It barely counts if it isn’t twin-coiled.
That’s his job.
I was unaware of that.
He needs to be publically embarrassed in a big way.
I recorded almost all of the segment I am talking about. How to get it out to the masses?
I also want to relay this to Glenn Beck. I think he’d be interested in this. Pointers?
I heard that. This is why I think Beck would be interested in this segment.
A Samoan Piledriver? ;)
CNN is actually losing in the ratings to MSNBC! Apparently their only answer is to try and out-commie Olbermann. Sanchez is a drunk-driving killer who should be in prison.
Several years ago, Sanchez was a local TV anchorman for Channel 7 in South Florida. This station was universally despised as the body bag and weather hysteria station. They chased after every mourning relative of someone who died in a crime or accident and hyperventilated over any sign of a hurricane that might possibly wipe South Florida out. Sanchez often delivered this stuff day in and day out as if he was Walter Cronkite. When I saw that CNN hired him I laughed as I thought that he was a perfect type for spewing leftist propaganda.
MSNBC ran the scroll that the Tea Parties throughout the country were arranged by Fox News and the RNC! I pray the dems who attend will take note of the unfair reporting.
Rich Sanchez was caught in a fraud about AK-47s. He and a deputy put on a demo of full auto vs semi auto at cider block targets.
It was filmed and edited to make it look like the semi-auto did as much damage as a full auto weapon.
Turns out that when they were firing the semi-auto, they fired it into the ground and not the cider blocks show.
NOTE TO SANCHEZ: Next time call NBC and see if they’ll loan you an exploding pick up.
His first name is Rick, but those who know him call him Dirty.
Didn’t James Bond kill Sanchez by setting him on fire?
