Rick Sanchez Finally Speaks Out!

Ex-CNN anchor Rick Sanchez has broken his silence and released a public statement about the regrettable, uh, ethnic comments that led to his firing last week. It’s fairly restrained — not a single Jew joke or anything. Full text, below.

“Inartful.” They always use “inartful” in these things:

On October 4th, I had a very good conversation with Jon Stewart, and I had the opportunity to apologize for my inartful comments from last week. I sincerely extend this apology to anyone else whom I may have offended.

As Jon was kind enough to note in his show Monday night, I am very much opposed to hate and intolerance, in any form, and I have frequently spoken out against prejudice. Despite what my tired and mangled words may have implied, they were never intended to suggest any sort of narrow-mindedness and should never have been made……. More.
