CNN's Rick Sanchez: Hispanics Working for Fox News are Sellouts

UPDATE AT END OF POST: FNC's Julie Banderas responds as do others.

Did you know that if you're Hispanic and work for the Fox News Channel, you're a sellout?

Well, that's what CNN's Rick Sanchez amazingly believes.

Inside Cable News discovered a few rather interesting tweets by Sanchez on Friday which are sure to raise a few eyebrows -- especially from Hispanics working at Fox (h/t NBer Thomas Stewart):

if i didn't believe in doing right thing, i'd be rich anchoring at fox news

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

me? what? i live in burbs, wife, four kids, dog, turtle.. two jobs... yeah... i'm a real rich guy, right?

@lomeinie fox in prime time is not news, not even close. i'm a newsman. where's the paradox?

@Garfug he asked if fox gave me a million. i say no where near enough

Readers should be advised that this is the same man who blamed Fox News and conservative talkers for the cop killings in Pittsburgh back in April, and earlier this month asked if Sarah Palin was resigning as Alaska governor because she was pregnant again.

Yeah,'re a "newsman."

Exit question: regardless what he's making, who thinks Sanchez is WAY overpaid?

*****Update: FNC's Julie Banderas responds via Twitter (h/t Hot Air) -- 

As a wise Latina woman, I have no comment other than to say... 

...if I were Rick Sanchez, I wouldn't look in the mirror, period. 

*****Update II: Steve Krakauer reports (also via Hot Air) --

A Fox News spokesperson tells Mediaite: “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.”
