Fired CNN host Sanchez apologizes to Jon Stewart

NEW YORK (AP) - October 6, 2010

Sanchez issued a blanket statement Wednesday, five days after he was fired from CNN for his remarks, including branding Stewart a bigot and questioning whether Jews should be considered a minority.

In Sanchez's statement, he said he had had a "very good conversation" on Monday with Stewart, who anchors the satirical "Daily Show" on Comedy Central.

Sanchez also says he has highest regards for CNN, his employer for six years.

Comedy Central declined to confirm Wednesday whether Stewart and Sanchez have spoken since Sanchez's radio outbursts last week.
