Overview

CNN anchor and TV news social media pioneer Rick Sanchez cuts through the bull to fearlessly share what Americans are really thinking.

It's time for the conventional idiots to wake up- because Americans have had enough. People in social networks are smashing the walls of partisan politics and traditional journalism-and things will never be the same. This is the new America-and Rick Sanchez is plugged in to the national conversation.

As the first national news anchor to combine traditional network news with the power of social-networking tools like Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook, CNN's Rick Sanchez doesn't just talk to Americans-he hears directly from them, unfiltered, every day. As Rick says, "It wasn't me talking. It was we talking."

Viewers tweet at Rick daily, so he knows they are sick of "conventional idiocy" like death panels, birthers, and blind partisanship. Luckily, Rick Sanchez is listening, and he's here to provide the takeaway.

    the american dream

    rick is not your usual anchor. he is outgoing and dynamic, he messes up and he apologizes, he is human and i can appreciate that. no one is perfect.

    i respect an anchor that attempts to cover both sides of each story, unlike all the other networks that severely skew their news. (faux news to the right- msnbc to the left)

    his book is really encouraging, especially for us little guys (the immigrants, the minorities, the working class shlubs) whose voices are so often overlooked by big media.

    it was nice to have a deeper look into his life and rise in the media.

    kudos to rick for making a name for himself, despite tremendous adversity, that would've (and has) crumbled lesser men. he is an inspiration for us and i wish him continued success.
