Dobbs Leaving CNN

November 12th, 2009

Lou Dobbs claims that he is leaving CNN “because he wants a freer platform to state his opinion.” Over time, Dobbs’ statements have been becoming more and more controversial, and less and less based on fact or reason. For example, he claimed that illegal immigrants were bringing eradicated diseases back into the US, citing 7,000 cases of leprosy in three years; when it was proved that the number of leprosy cases over that time totaled 398 and had been falling for more than a decade, Dobbs stood by his “facts.” Dobbs has long railed against illegal immigrants, his claims tinted with racism, and upheld the Birther claim that Obama was not born in the U.S.

Hmm… an addled right-wing CNN personality leaving the network…. The announcement that he will get a show on Fox News coming in three… two…

    Month ago:


    “Its reported that last month, Roger Ailes – Fox’s Chief, met with CNN anchor Lou Dobbs for lunch. So there’s speculation that Lou Dobbs may be leaving CNN to work at Fox.”

    Not entirely out of the blue I’d say…
