Did Jon Stewart Defend Rick Sanchez?

If I wasn’t in love with Jon Stewart before, I certainly am now.  After Rick Sanchez was fired from CNN I was curious if Stewart would dance on his career grave.  Instead, he handled the situation with the utmost tact, and even helped Sanchez in the process.  Stewart suggested that “he’s not even sure Sanchez believed what he was saying,” and then played clips of Sanchez discussing his intolerance for bigots.  He closed with the statement, “Sanchez — consider yourself unbusted.”  I agree with Stewart’s intimation that Sanchez’s diarrhea of the mouth was more about stupidity than any kind of prejudice against Jews.  That being said, CNN should have a higher standard for their “journalists.”
