Jon Stewart on Rick Sanchez: ‘Apologize, and We’ll Hire You Back’

Stewart at a charity event: ‘If you went on radio and said the Jews control the media … you may want to hold on to your money’

Jon Stewart joked about the Rick Sanchez firing in New York while hosting a charity event in New York this weekend, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

While hosting Comedy Central's "Night Of Too Many Stars," Stewart brought up CNN's swift firing of the anchor, who let loose on "The Daily Show" host and Jewish people in the media on the "Stand Up! with Pete Dominick" Sirius XM radio show last week.

In talking about how people should donate for autism education — for which "Stars" raises money — Stewart said: "If you went on radio and said the Jews control the media … you may want to hold on to your money." But if Sanchez was right about the Jews, Stewart also suggested, "All he has to do is apologize to us, and we'll hire him back."
