MSNBC hosts Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow wasted no time Friday, mocking Rick Sanchez just hours after he had been fired from CNN.
Olbermann named Sanchez — with whom he'd gone toe-to-toe earlier in the week — one of his "Worst Persons in the World."
"There's my old back-up host, Rick Sanchez of CNN. Well, not anymore, not after this interview on Sirius XM radio on which he called Jon Stewart a 'bigot,'" Olbermann said, introducing the controversial radio interview in which Sanchez claimed the media is run by Jewish people. "Bye Rick. Fired at 6PM."
In the next hour, Olbermann's MSNBC colleague also got in a dig at Sanchez while discussing Alaska Republican Senate nominee Joe Miller.
