Sanchez's wife Suzanne late Monday said on her Facebook page: "rick apologized to jon stewart today. they had a good talk. jon was gracious and called rick "thin-skinned." he's right. rick feels horrible that in an effort to make a broader point about the media, his exhaustion from working 14 hr days for 2 mo. straight, caused him to mangle his thought process inartfully."

She said he "deeply" apologizes to everyone he hurt.

Stewart and David Letterman had both mocked the Sanchez situation on their shows Monday.
