Disappointed by the decision to fire former CNN newsman Rick Sanchez, a Facebook page has been created called, “We want Rick Sanchez Back.” Over 2,200 fans have signed up since being created. The site encourages those who “like” the page to change their Facebook profile picture to an anti-CNN logo. It gives users instructions on how to download it.
In recent days, many have started to question whether the firing of Sanchez was appropriate based on what was actually stated by the former anchor during the Stand Up! with Pete Dominick radio show. Fox’s Bernie Goldberg, Columnist Christopher Hitchens, and Los Angeles Times TV critic Howard Rosenberg have all publicly stated Sanchez’s words were not cause for termination.
