@ricksanchezcnn twitters a lot.
A reader alerted me to one of Sanchez’s recent tweets. While tweeting about celebrating 20th anniversary with his wife away from kids for the first time in several years he followed with
for me, (not for all) but for me, local news got boring.
One of his viewers followed with:
@ricksanchezcnn my favorate stuff about you is how you worked you way up from the scap pit, hurricane duty, under water car escapes, lol
To which Rick responds:
@kindcutesteve yeap, we did some crazy stuff. only thing i didn’t do was get shot out of cannon. wait, got an idea lol
Guess he didn’t take himself so seriously? Hm…
and about that spat with FoxNews… It started with Rick tweeting:
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
if i didn’t believe in doing right thing, i’d be rich anchoring at fox news
Then The Huffington Post picked up on it and twisted it out of context with a headline reading Sanchez On Twitter: Hispanics Working For Fox Have “Sold Out,”. FoxNews PR flack responded with its usual bark and bite:
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
