CNN host Rick Sanchez was fired last week after a radio interview where he called Jon Stewart a "bigot" and implied Jews run the nation's media. Because The Daily Show doesn't tape on Fridays, Stewart had to wait until last night's show to address the Sanchez kerfuffle. Old news already? Hardly. Stewart actually forgoes the big laugh lines, dryly eviscerating Sanchez as he talks about his childhood as "the fortunate son of a single mother in the education field."
Oh, and then he compares Sanchez to Michael Scott from The Office, which frankly we're shocked no one ever picked up on before.
