***UPDATE 7/26*** A Fox News spokesperson has some harsh words for Rick Sanchez in response to his tweets criticizing the cable news network:
Everyone knows that Rick is an industry joke, he shows that he's a hack everyday. And he doesn't have to worry about working at FOX because we only hire talent who have the ability to generate ratings.
CNN host Rick Sanchez is well known for his passionate and prolific use of Twitter, which includes interacting with it when he's on-air. And as his more than 100,000 followers are no doubt aware, he's willing to speak his mind over a tweet.
Well, Friday night Sanchez fired off some particularly entertaining and pointed attacks over Twitter, taking on both comedian Bill Maher and Hispanics who work for Fox. In a series of consecutive tweets Sanchez explained that "if i didn't believe in doing right thing, i'd be rich anchoring at fox news," and then followed up by saying, "do u know how much money i'd make if i'd sold out as hispanic and worked at fox news, r u kidding, one problem, looking in mirror." He then added, "me? what? i live in burbs, wife, four kids, dog, turtle.. two jobs... yeah... i'm a real rich guy, right?"
As for Maher, Sanchez wrote, perhaps after having watched an episode of "Real Time with Bill Maher," "The more I watch bill maher, the more I realize what an opportunist he is. He'll say anything to get people to say ooohh! Even if bs!"
Stay tuned to see what he writes next.
