For those who wonder what made former CNN anchor Rick Sanchez melt down during an interview last week with Sirius radio, his wife has offered an explanation, reports TheWrap.
Suzanne Sanchez chalks it up to exhaustion. She also posted on her Facebook wall Tuesday that Rick had been trying to make a broader point when he put his foot in his mouth by calling "The Daily Show" star Jon Stewart a bigot and implied that the media was run by the Jews.
She said her husband has since apologized personally to Stewart.
Suzanne Sanchez added that it was the strain of working 14 hours a day for CNN that caused Rick’s faux pas.
Late-night talk show hosts, meanwhile, have had a field day with the Sanchez incident. Here’s a video of a David Letterman Top Ten List aimed directly at Sanchez.
