3. No, sweetie, you're not alone in this assessment ...

LOTS!

4. Yes- he's not all that bright. We were all surprised here in Miami when CNN hired him -
we have some pretty amazing local reporters in South Florida- Sanchez was never considered to be one of them. I think CNN was needing to fill in their Hispanic quota and he showed up just in time. I had to turn it off - cannot watch him for too long.

5. Didn't he hit someone with his car when he had a questionable
blood alcohol level while he was in Florida? I thought being an idiot was a prerequisite for a job at CNN.

12. The mystery is why and how he keeps getting hired by one outlet after another
While somebody like Aaron BROWN was bumped off (by airhead COOPER, but that's another thread).

There used to be some great articles in the internets totally skewering SANCHEZ, but they have dropped off into the ether. Still available is his DWI crash that (paralyzed? killed?) somebody.


Oh, there's this SNL, back when KAGAN was still around and dating LIMBOsevic:

*****************QUOTE**********

http://snltranscripts.jt.org/04/04nstewart.phtml
Rick Sanchez: Take it from me, prison will do that to you.

Daryn Kagan: What do you know about prison, Rick?

Rick Sanchez: Not a thing. I just like to hear myself talk. (smiles wide)

Daryn Kagan: You are an idiot.

Rick Sanchez: Your boyfriend is Rush Limbaugh.

Daryn Kagan: All right, that's private.

Rick Sanchez: You see Rush Limbaugh naked - and you like it.




http://www.newtimesbpb.com/issues/2000-06-01/feature.ht...
.... Swarthy, preternaturally tan male: And I'm Rick Sanchez. A weekly newspaper in Miami is speculating that let me see if I've got this right that I, WSVN anchor Rick Sanchez, am a secret agent agitating for Castro's Cuba. ....

Cafiero: That's right, Rick. ... Critics of your sensational broadcasting style are claiming you are, in large part, responsible for the civic unrest that followed the removal of Elin Gonzalez from the home of his relatives in Little Havana. Those disturbances, you may recall, served to weaken the position of Miami's exile community while strengthening Fidel Castro's iron grip on power.

Sanchez (interrupting): Ah wait a second here, Carmel. You just used the word sensational. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't that mean good? ....

Cafiero: Not in this context, Rick. You see, a close examination of your performance over the course of the Elin saga reveals your reporting helped make the entire Cuban-exile community appear ridiculous. ....

15. No
He's a dumbass.

Check out the clip where he's allowed to be tasered. He's sort of entertainingly stupid though.

16. I Can't Get Enough Of The Rickonator...
I remember when this dude started out on MSNBC...the young Hispanic stud...until a scandal in his private life sent him into cable oblivion...only to be rescued by CNN.

We call him "Super Rick" here in tribute to the great Super Dave Osborne. We've even compiled a list of things we'd love to see the Rickonator subjected to...if "news" is gonna be a circus, let it have some clowns worth watching.

19. NO

Sanchez is a total moron, and it's a miracle he even has a job on a news network.

Jon Stewart makes fun of him all the time, and when he got tasered Jon ran that clip over and over, and said it was the best video clip he had ever seen. Stewart also said he could watch that clip a thousand times and never get tired of watching it.

I dont know what he said recently, but I have watched him a few times and he says something stupid every time I see him. Now when he comes on I just change the channel, I dont even want to watch his dumb ass report on anything.

20. No. Couldn't stand him on MSNBC then, can't stand him on CNN now.
It's not just you. Guy is a blowhard and much too impressed with himself, God knows why.
