Lou Dobbs Leaving CNN

by the Left Coast Rebel

This just broke this evening and apparently today was his last show. It’s true, Lou Dobbs is quitting and/or leaving CNN. I searched high and low and came across a lot of ambiguous information on just why Dobbs is quitting the network. Some say that the left-wing jihad against him, culminating with his house getting shot up had something to do with it. I’m hearing rumours as well that he may be heading to Fox. Disclaimer : I’m not a Dobbs viewer but respect his views on several topics.

Also, it sure would be interesting to have a Beck/Dobbs lineup, back to back on Fox News. Right? My gut tells me that this may be what is going on here:

Newsbusters has the transcript from his final show here, starting with this :

Tonight I want to turn to a personal note, if I may, and address a matter that has raised some curiosity. This will be my last broadcast here on CNN, where I’ve worked for most of the past 30 years, and where I have many friends and colleagues whom I admire deeply and respect greatly.

He goes on, my favorite part being:

But each of those issues is, in my opinion, informed by our capacity to demonstrate strong resilience of our now weakened capitalist economy and demonstrate the political will to overcome the lack of true representation in Washington, D.C.

  1. mmm, mmm, mmm, Cable News Network, mmm, mmm, mmm, you lost another brick in your wall!

    I have not really watched Dobbs over the years, but I can appreciate him leaving the brickheaded Crappy News Network

  2. I wonder if this is because of his constant asking to see a REAL birth cert from Obama. Word was that the CNN brass were not pleased with that.

  3. MSM has little tolerance for right of center voices. RE: Stossel from ABC to Fox, Beck from Headline News to Fox, now Dobbs. I've heard rumors Dobbs might go to Fox Business.

  4. @ Unclogged – I haven't either, he's a decent guy though.

    @ Archer – Highly possible.

    @ Nickie – Possible as well, I would like that!

    @ RK – I've heard that too, we'll have to see.

  5. I have switched back and forth to watch Dobbs……………. He was a bulldog in the end….. I believed he waivered in the beginning…………… After his house was shot up, I think he realized what nutty left wingers there are……… I think he has been preparing for this long before the shooting. No man that is worth his weight in salt can sit for 30 years and not see what the heck is going on in this Country……. As John COUGAR Mellencamp sung……………… THE WALLS ARE CRUMBLING DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! None to soon for me!!

  6. Pamela Geller who blogs at Atlas Shrugs is hoping for a Shep Smith for Lou Dobbs swapola. Dare to dream.
