Keith Olbermann Blasts Rick Sanchez's (Non)-Apology (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Oct 7th 2010 3:55PM
It undoubtedly pleased Keith Olbermann that Rick Sanchez's career imploded just days after Sanchez called Olbermann a stooge for the Obama administration.

Olberman was one of the first television commentators to mock Sanchez -- who had been substitute host for Olbermann before he joined CNN -- after Sanchez's unfortunate comments about Jon Stewart and Jews in the news media. Then, on Tuesday, Olbermann used the worst person in the world segment of 'Countdown' (weekdays, 8 PM ET on MSNBC) to rip Sanchez's public apology for his remarks as a non-apology.

"Saying that . . . most of the people running the networks were Jews was not "in-artful" (as Sanchez had said in his apology), it was anti-Semitic," Olbermann argued.

"(Sanchez's) statement closes with, 'I look forward to my next step with great anticipation,' Olbermann continued, before offering Sanchez advice on what his next step should actually be: "Your next step is an apology."

Nevertheless, Olbermann only made Sanchez the second worst person in the world, reserving the top spot for Dick Armey. So Rick's got that going for him, which is nice.

American Jews make up only 2% of the population of America. Yet: 46% make over $100,000 per year, they make up 15% of the U.S. Senate, 13% of the U.S. House of Representatives, 67% of members of the Board of the Federal reserve, 33% of the U.S. Supreme Court. Media: Just taking CNN only, 55% of corporate officers for TBS, which owns CNN, are Jewish. On air, Larry King, John King, Howard Kurtz, Eliot Slpitzer, Jeffrey Toobin, Paula Zahn, etc.. Rick Sanchez has nothing to apologize for.
