Thumbs up Lou Dobbs leaving CNN

I wonder if he'll join faux news?


Update: Lou Dobbs to Quit CNN - Media Decoder Blog - NYTimes.com

Update: Lou Dobbs to Quit CNN
By BRIAN STELTER AND BILL CARTER

Robert Caplin for The New York Times
Lou Dobbs at the anchor desk at CNN’s New York studio in 2006.
Lou Dobbs, the longtime CNN anchor whose anti-immigration views have made him a TV lightning rod, said Wednesday that he is leaving the cable news channel effective immediately.

“Some leaders in the media, politics and business have been urging me to go beyond my role here at CNN and engage in constructive problem-solving,” Mr. Dobbs said just after 7 p.m., suggesting that he would remain involved in the civic discourse, but perhaps not on television.

“I’m considering a number of options and directions,” Mr. Dobbs added.

Wednesday’s program will be his last on CNN, one of his employees said earlier in the evening.

Mr. Dobbs’ contract was not set to expire until the end of 2011. He told viewers that CNN had agreed to release him from his contract early.

Mr. Dobbs informed his staff members of his intentions in a meeting Wednesday afternoon, catching some of the staffers off-guard.

Well known for his political positions, Mr. Dobbs is an outlier at CNN, which has sought to position itself as a middle ground of sorts in the fractious cable news arena. The CNN employees said Wednesday that they did not know if Mr. Dobbs was moving to another network.

Mr. Dobbs met with Roger Ailes, the chairman of the Fox News Channel, in September. At the time Mr. Dobbs was viewed as a potential hire for the Fox Business Network. But a Fox spokesperson said Wednesday, “We have not had any discussions with Lou Dobbs for Fox News or Fox Business.”

Mr. Dobbs has been with CNN since its founding, save for a two-year stint at a Web site called Space.com. He has evolved over the years from a straight-laced business anchor to an outspoken commentator who rails against illegal immigration and taxpayer bailouts, among other subjects.

Lately, though, he has saved most of his opinions for his afternoon radio show, which made its debut in March 2008. It is on the radio show that he talked repeatedly about the conspiracy theory claims that President Obama is not a United States citizen. When he mentioned the citizenship issue on CNN over the summer, his bosses were forced to call it a “dead issue.”

More recently, Mr. Dobbs’ views on immigration provoked a protest by Hispanic groups. Members of the groups complained that CNN was allowing Mr. Dobbs “to spread lies and misinformation about us each night.”

Last month the New Jersey State Police were called to Mr. Dobbs home to investigate a report of gunfire. Mr. Dobbs suggested that his family had been singled out because of his views on illegal immigration and border security.

I can start watching CNN now. I think CNN rating will go up just because this hate-mongering face will not be there anymore.

Default Yesterday was a historic day...Lou Dobbs Firing

He is not employable in TV network business and will go back to radio business. Now I can watch CNN. He was close to Ted Turner but CEO John Klien never liked him and please note he did not resign. He was technically fired. Fox won't employ him.

Default Inside Story- Lou was fired. He did not resign

This was all building up from last couple months with Pro-Immigrant organizations exposing his lies via dumplou.com & other websites. This exploded with President Obama's so called birth certificate controversy. That was all proved hoax and Lou was still carrying it on his program. CNN CEO John Klein had to issue him a memo that this issue is dead and this got CNN lot of embarrassment. Finally his lies were exposed when he blamed immigrants for the shorts fired at his home. NJ State police after investigation ruled that out . Accroding to police. this was work of hunters in the area & Lou was not the target at all. This brought Lou ratings down and CNN felt the impact of this BS.This was the boiling point for John Klien to ask Lou to pack up and F* off.

I also feel so.
TV is heavily regulated by Govt....He will probably move to radio like Rush, Michael savage.

He entertained the Obama birthers movement(people who don't believe he is born in US) and that was teh last straw for CNN management.

Lou is just going to find another outlet and his audience will move right along to wherever he goes.
There is absoultely no reason to think for a second that Lou Dobbs will be any less vocal and virulent about his views on non-Caucasian immigrants.
