Daily Show host Jon Stewart had a field day at Rick Sanchez’ expense last night, devoting a third of his show to the CNN anchor who lost his job on Friday after calling Stewart a bigot on satellite radio. The best part is a cleverly edited video showing the similarities between Sanchez and Steve Carell’s clueless boss character from The Office. “Carell is leaving The Office [and] NBC is looking to replace him,” Stewart says after the clip. “Sanchez is available!” CNN fired Sanchez a day after he assailed Daily Show host Stewart as a “bigot” and suggested that CNN and the other networks are run by Jews. Sanchez made his rant last Thursday on the Sirius XM radio show “Stand Up! with Pete Dominick”.
