Lou Dobbs Resigns From CNN

The controversial TV anchor has resigned from CNN amid a campaign to force him off the air due to his reporting on Latinos and immigrants.

(rubbing eyes)

Can it be?

Is it true?

I have to check this out further…

Dear Goddess, it IS true. TIME just posted an article on “departing CNN anchor Lou Dobbs”, 30 minutes ago.

Good riddance to a journalist gone bad. Publicly subscribing to anti-immigrant AND birther nonsense means he’s no longer competent to report.

Plus, let’s not forget that racists loved him. And the feeling is definitely mutual.

Adios, cabrón.

    Cabron is too nice to describe that dickwad. I am SO glad that this happened. The man hates anyone with a brown skin and Native American features.
    Please let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, Lou.
    We will miss you terribly. NOT!
    I mean, who will spew such vitriol and encourage wingnuts to commit violence against Hispanics now?
    Faux Anything NotNews is a perfect place for your disgusting mouth.
    I mangled a few trite expressions. Let’s see who else can come up with some. 🙂

    A little off-topic, but did you know that Brit Hume used to be on the staff of Ramparts magazine, the legendary lefty mag from the 60s/70s?

  3. Now that’s news to me. I wonder what turned his head. Probably the same thing that got to David Horowitz…(cough cough) MONEY! (cough cough wheeze)

  4. Manaat says:

    One of the major financiers of Ramparts magazine was Marty Peretz (whose wife inherited tons of money), and then Todd Gitlin also had something to do with the magazine too, I think.

  5. Manaat says:

    Marty Peretz withdrew funding from Ramparts after it published an issue with articles critical of Israel (the contributions by Chomsky and Izzy Stone particularly incensed him apparently). That marked the death of the magazine.

  6. Somehow, I’m not surprised. A magazine of that quality couldn’t have died for lack of readership, but for lack of sponsorship. It’s the sponsors you have to watch out for. It’s also why I don’t take ads here.
