Why this Site?

This site has been put up by Rick’s friends, people who have cared about him for many years. 

Rick is a good man with a long history of success in the television industry.  We created this site because we don’t believe a man’s life should be judged by one misconstrued moment, one interview, one soundbite taken out of context.  We believe that runaway headlines shouldn’t malign someone’s reputation, leaving him unemployed and ruined.

Rick doesn’t hate.  He doesn’t discriminate.  He knows what it’s like to be a minority, an outsider, and what it’s like to work your way up from literally nothing.  And he is sympathetic to all groups—Italians, African-Americans, Arabs, Hispanics, Muslims and yes, Jews, because he knows they have also had to overcome similar challenges.

We ask you to read Rick’s bio.  We ask you to learn for yourselves about Rick and his accomplishments. And we ask you to listen to his interview—or at least the relevant 5-minute portion of it—in context. 

We all owe him that much before we judge or condemn him.
