The announcement comes as a surprise, but explains why Sanchez was notably absent from Friday’s Rick’s List and was replaced by Brooke Baldwin.

CNN severed ties with Sanchez after he made comments on the Stand Up! with Pete Dominick radio show saying Stewart was a bigot and that CNN was “run by Jews.”

“I think Jon Stewart’s a bigot,” Sanchez said on the Sirius radio show Thursday.

“He grew up in a suburban middle class New Jersey home with everything you could imagine. He’s a bigot against everyone who’s not like him.”
