Rick Sanchez posted a desperate plea to Twitter Tuesday: let me move on.

He Tweeted a desperate plea to the media Tuesday:

Sanchez is scheduled to appear in a "public dialogue" with Rabbi Shmuley Boteach in New York next week.

"My career path was changed because of a misconstrued comment, which very few actually even bothered to listen to. I have spent the last few months concentrating on my family, but instantly jumped at the opportunity for a public dialogue with my friend, Rabbi Shmuley Boteach. I look forward to addressing any and all questions and concerns of the Jewish community," he said in an announcement about the event.

Sanchez also has a website, RickSanchezTV.com, in the works. WebNewser notes that the site "was registered on October 20, 2010 -- 20 days after Sanchez was fired from CNN."
