Jews don’t run the media, liberals do. Some of those liberals happen to be Jewish, some of them happen to be Catholic or Protestant, and almost none of them have very much use for religion, traditional values or America itself.
As is true of every elite, joining the media requires adopting a new identity and giving up old allegiances. And every elite has a pecking order. It has rules for what you can and can’t do. Rick Sanchez broke those rules by taking aim at a man who had become a liberal icon, and doing it in a way that embarrassed CNN. And like most people who break the unspoken code of their particular jungle and don’t have the status to back it up, he got kicked to the curb.
Because as liberal as Sanchez may be, when it came to a showdown with Jon Stewart, he just wasn’t liberal enough.
