The Sanchez Affair
TWO YEARS ago, Joel Stein wrote a remarkable op-ed in the Los Angeles Times:
Stein went on,
But I don’t care if Americans think we’re running the news media, Hollywood, Wall Street or the government. I just care that we get to keep running them.
…[I]t’s worth pointing out that when this “Latino” newsreader of European extraction said that Jews prevailed at his news corporation and most others,
- The entire spectrum of mainstream and alternative American media, from the Drudge Report to the sassy liberal Gawker, called Sanchez’s interview a “racist” and/or “anti-Semitic” “rant,” even though the likable, if dim-witted, anchorman was calmly making subtle distinctions about Jews and White liberals as best he could.
- Sanchez — not known for incisiveness or the accurate use of his English lexicon — expressed opinions, about Jon Stewart being “prejudicial” (in the sense of favoring Establishment liberals), and Jewish preeminence, that are entirely fair and based on fact.
Whatever one might think of Jewish influence in the media, the fact that Joel Stein is allowed to gloat about the fact — and Rick Sanchez hounded for alluding to it — amounts to one of America’s biggest double standards in a crowded field.
This scandal has also reminded me of Stephen Steinlight’s arguments…. For years, Steinlight has been saying that new immigrants, particularly those from the Hispanic Third World, lack the sentimental visions of Jews as powerless and pitiable held by most American gentiles, and would be far less accepting of Jews in positions of power.
Rick Sanchez’s European physiognomy make him unrepresentative of Latinos in America — but then quite representative of public representatives of Latinos in America — and his comments might be a harbinger of a coming ethnic clash. It seems that the Rick Sanchezes of the world don’t like it when the Jon Stewarts of the world are depicted as oppressed minorities deserving of special status. This might get interesting.

The original recordings, made by Dr. Pierce and Kevin Strom on reel-to-reel tape in 1995, had been digitized in the early 2000s, but that digitization process was primitive compared to what we are capable of today; we have remastered this important work using the latest software — and we did it the careful, slow, difficult, craftsman-like way — the way Dr. Pierce would have wanted it.
