Lou Dobbs Abruptly Quits CNN

Post by Justice4all on Thu Nov 12, 2009 8:10 pm

Months ago the president of CNN/U.S., Jonathan Klein, offered a choice to Lou Dobbs, the channel’s most outspoken anchor. Mr. Dobbs could vent his opinions on radio and anchor an objective newscast on television, or he could leave CNN.

Lou Dobbs, seen at a demonstration last year, had been asked to drop his conservative talk on TV or take his views to radio.

For a time, Mr. Dobbs did tone down his TV rhetoric, but on Wednesday he made a more drastic decision: He chose opinion.

Mr. Dobbs told viewers that he was resigning from his CNN job immediately. Sitting before an image of an American flag on his studio set, he said “some leaders in media, politics and business have been urging me to go beyond the role here at CNN and to engage in constructive problem solving as well as to contribute positively to the great understanding of the issues of our day.”

Yeah! I could not stand him, and hit the mute and changed channels as quickly as I could get my hands on my remote. He was a big-mouthed bigot, and his sour rhetoric matched his sour face. Good riddance!
Thanks for posting this J4a.
