UPDATE AT END OF POST: FNC's Julie Banderas responds.

Did you know that if you're Hispanic and work for the Fox News Channel, you're a sellout?

Well, that's what CNN's Rick Sanchez amazingly believes.

Because we all know ALL blacks are socialist commies by nature, so if they aren’t lockstep with the leftwing NAZI’s they must be sellouts.

Let me understand Rick’s logic here, he can look himself in the mirror knowing he took an innocent man’s life while driving drunk, but he can’t work for Fox News. Ok, taking a life, good, working for fox news, bad. Ricky should claim he was drunk when he made that statement

Is this the same Rich Sanchez at CNN who is noted for killing an innocent guy in a drunk driving, hit-and-run crime?

Rick Sanchez is an entitlement lobbyist spokesperson, and a member of the “Blue Dress Media”.

Rick Sanchez killed Jeffrey Smuzinick:

“Jeffrey Smuzinick, who was left paralyzed after being struck by the car of Channel 7 anchor Rick Sanchez, died Monday in a Pennsylvania nursing home. He was 36. Smuzinick was injured Dec. 10, 1990, after he ran out into traffic following a Dolphins football game. He was struck by a 1991 Volvo driven by Sanchez. Smuzinick suffered severe head injuries and was in a coma for many months. He underwent rehabilitation in Florida …”

Hey Sanchez shut your stupid mouth.

I thought you Libtards were SO enamored with diversity of thought?

I guess you must be of the Chavez type of “progressive”, where diversity only spells out a trip to the detention camp?

As an Hispanic myself, I get outraged by people like him spewing such garbage. The shame is the Hispanics do not have a leader. No, it is not Jerry Rivers!

Sellout?

So, according to Sanchez, the only reason for being is to push an agenda, right?

How about working, supporting your family and doing what you love?

Hey Sanchez, this is America. Land of the Free, señor.

This is the attitude of “compassionate liberals”. Juan Williams mentioned sometime ago that his co-workers on PBS criticized him for being a sellout for appearing on FOX.

Note to Rick Sanchez, just because someone happens to work for FOX does not automatically make them “conservative”.See Shep Smith, Whoraldo Rivera, Bill O’Reilly. And Julie Banderas, nee Julie E. Bidwell is only partially of Hispanic descent. Sanchez is clearly an idiot.

Ignorant pigs like Sanchez think all Hispanics are like him, too ignorant to think for themselves. He betrays intelligent Hispanics everywhere.

Sanchez is a Nazi sellout, pure and simple. The Hispanics in my family will happily teach him the consequences of being a CNNazi if he should happen to crawl out from under his rock some day.

Apparently that qualifies as a resume enhancer over at CNN. It just runs in the family over there:

Jack Cafferty "pleaded guilty to leaving the scene of an accident and misdemeanor charges of reckless driving, assault and harassment after striking a cyclist and knocking him off his bike on May 14, 2003. The bicyclist was slightly injured. A traffic officer and several pedestrians ran after Cafferty's car, but he ran at least two red lights without stopping, according to a police complaint. Cafferty was sentenced to a $250 fine and 70 hours of community service."

Who's the embarrassment now, CNN?

The Forgotten Man
Eight months after he got hit by Channel 7 anchorman Rick Sanchez’s Volvo, Jeffrey Smuzinick is doing poorly. His family is just plain doing poor.

By Sean Rowe
Published on August 07, 1991

He was one of these guys you see on Friday afternoon at the 7-Eleven, stocking up on beer for the weekend, maybe buying some Lotto tickets, then piling into a battered van with his buddies and cranking up Zeta-4 on the radio.

It would be nice to say his skills as a carpenter were renowned at the swank enclaves of Williams Island and Turnberry Isle where he worked. In truth, the people who live in the houses he built never paid much attention to Jeffrey Smuzinick.

And these days they don’t even see him. A friend recalls that Smuzinick used to put down his hammer at midday and speed into town for legendary lunches -”a dozen oysters, ten chicken wings (hot), fish sandwich (plain), and an order of French fries.” Now, in a South Dade nursing home, the 32-year-old Pembroke Pines man is learning to drink pureed spaghetti through a straw.

Minutes after midnight on the morning of December 10, 1990, an intoxicated Smuzinick darted out in front of a Volvo on a residential street near Joe Robbie Stadium. The driver of the car, WSVN-TV Channel 7 anchorman Rick Sanchez, became the subject of a subsequent January 16 New Times story that described the odd circumstances of the accident. Sanchez, whom a Metro-Dade police officer said “smelled strongly of alcohol,” first stopped his car but then later left the scene. A blood test to determine Sanchez’s sobriety was not administered until an hour and fifteen minutes after the collision. Though Sanchez says he tried to aid Smuzinick at the scene of the accident and flag down motorists, eyewitnesses claim the anchorman ignored the injured man and loudly told police and bystanders that blood tests were pointless, and would hurt his public image.

Best known for his stint as a sometimes-melodramatic correspondent on Channel 7’s “Crime Check,” Sanchez continues his work on the station’s evening and late newscasts while awaiting a September 13 court date on misdemeanor drunk-driving charges. Though the results of one test show the newsman’s blood-alcohol level was .15 -slightly over the legal .10 limit - the test was performed after Sanchez left the scene of the accident. In January Sanchez told New Times he had consumed no alcohol the night of the accident. His attorney, Richard Essen, now says the anchorman returned home and had “a couple of drinks to calm his nerves” before returning to the scene. Essen doubts that Sanchez’s DUI charge will ever come to trial. “I think the results of the blood tests will be thrown out,” the lawyer says. “If the results of the blood tests are suppressed, then there is no evidence against him at all. The state cannot proceed.”

Meanwhile, after two months in a coma, Smuzinick has regained consciousness and is making slow improvement. His right side remains largely paralyzed due to massive brain damage, but he can move his left arm and leg and sometimes hold his head upright. Using hand signals, he can answer yes or no to simple questions. Doctors last Friday removed a feeding tube from his trachea, and Smuzinick can now eat liquid foods. He has indicated that he hopes he can soon move from HealthSouth Regional Rehabilitation Center in Cutler Ridge to the town house in Pembroke Pines he purchased and finished remodeling shortly before the accident.

“The first eighteen months after an accident like this are crucial,” says Dr. Kenneth Fischer, a neurologist who treated Smuzinick at North Shore Hospital until March 21. “Whether or not he will improve further is hard to say. It’s very unlikely he will ever be able to function independently or converse spontaneously.”

Though Smuzinick’s health insurance policy covers most of his medical costs, it doesn’t pay for rehabilitative care. Family members say unpaid bills for physical therapy now total about $81,000. To save money, they have removed Smuzinick from the clinic’s head-injury program. Using videotapes to learn therapy techniques, friends, relatives, and former co-workers have begun to provide a semblance of the rehabilitation program they can’t afford.

One friend of the family, Kelli Crist, has distributed flyers describing the accident involving Smuzinick and Sanchez. The flyers list Crist’s phone number (680-2741) and request donations to help pay for treatment and therapy. So far the fund-raising effort has not gone well.

“Nobody seems to be interested,” Crist says. “We must have passed out 5000 flyers in Miami alone. Yours was the first phone call I’ve received.”

Smuzinick’s fiancee, Jackie Stringhill, says it’s just as well that Sanchez hasn’t paid a visit to Smuzinick since the accident. “I guess his attitude bothers a lot of people. But we have enough to think about. We have our hands full. We don’t really talk about the accident much any more. Anyway,” she adds resignedly, “as far as Sanchez goes, what goes around comes around.

It happened on Dec. 10, 1990. Mr. Sanchez, seriously drunk behind the wheel, with his dad as passenger, was leaving a Miami Dolphins game. He had barely left the stadium parking area before he hit a man who was running between cars, and who (unfortunately) was also drunk. Undoubtedly helped by invisible friends on the police force, Sanchez was not charged with causing the accident, but was later charged with (and pleaded no contest to) DUI.
