¡Hasta la Vista!


There's going to be mucho partying in the streets of East L.A. tonight.

The New York Times: Lou Dobbs Announces He's Leaving CNN Effective Immediately/11.11.09

Oh yeah, and Fox announces the premiere of "The Lou Dobbs Factor" in 3... 2... 1...

Wonder if he's gonna get a Mexican to clean out his desk.

Lou's xenophobia and birtherism probably turned off one to many people at CNN. Word was he was on his way out already (after having spoken to Rupert Murdoch earlier this year). Good riddance to a racist chimp in a suit.

And YOU, my friend, doubt the existence of God? Hallelujah!

Quelle Supris.

It's a cover story to cover his termination.






Turns out Lou was blogging.

@Nancy: No, if god existed, or gave a damn about the human race if he/she/it exists, Dobbs would have either died years ago by freak lightning strike on a clear day or mysteriously replaced with an exact likeness of himself made of salt. May others would have suffered a similar fate as well.

- Jaded, I know.

Call me crazy but, after reading his farewell statement, it sounds to me like he's getting ready to run for office.

Very strong possibility. I got that impression too. Yeah, he's been seen around town with Roger Ailes, but I'm really not sure Fox is going to pick him up.

What does it say when you're too obnoxious even for Fox News?

I love Lou, but he is wrong on Mexican labor. For me and millions of other small business guys, hard-working God-fearing Mexican men are a gold mine. I have my boy Kyle out on a job today and he's nothing compared to Pedro who has no problem digging ditches filled with human waste.

Whether you agreed or disagreed on any given issue, noone can dispute that award winning veteran journalist Lou Dobbs brought public recognition of those issues.

Lou Dobbs, the last of the original anchors at CNN, got those issues publicly acknowledged by those politicians, such as Secretary of State and The President of the United States, who are now in office.

After three decades, I think longtime viewers needed to be reassured, and I believe Jon Klein helped relieve the anxiety by saying that CNN would miss Lou. Still, there is a shortage of veteran newsmen.

Lou's ratings sucked and his show was boring. John King is an improvement.
