Rick Sanchez Breaks Silence: 'I Screwed Up'
HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - Rick Sanchez gave his first interview following his firing from CNN to ABC's "Good Morning America" on Friday--and the former anchor didn't waste any time apologizing for his comments about Jon Stewart and Jews.
"I screwed up," he told "GMA" co-host George Stephanopoulos.
Stephanopoulos asked him what had led him to call Stewart a "bigot" and say everyone who ran CNN was "a lot like" the "Daily Show" host on a Sirius XM satellite radio show last week. Sanchez blamed the scandal on fatigue.
