CNN host Rick Sanchez had a “live grenade in his mouth and he pulled the pin” when he gave the radio interview that led to his firing.
That’s according to Pete Dominick, the host who conducted the now infamous satellite radio interview where Sanchez called Jon Stewart a bigot and made anti-Semitic remarks.
“I didn’t really want him to do the radio show,” Dominick said, noting that Sanchez is not the type of guest he normally works with.
“But Rick Sanchez came in the studio on Thursday with a live grenade in his mouth and pulled the pin. I tried to put it back for him but he wasn’t having it. He apparently had an agenda to unleash on Jon Stewart not knowing that I worked at The Daily Show and I know Jon and that I know his bosses and quite a few Jewish people.”
