Lou Dobbs, the longtime CNN anchor whose anti-immigration views have made him a TV lightning rod, plans to announce Wednesday that he is leaving the network, two network employees said.
A CNN executive confirmed that Mr. Dobbs will announce his resignation plans on his 7 p.m. program. His resignation is effective immediately; tonight’s program will be his last on CNN. His contract was not set to expire until the end of 2011.
This information just came out, and there's no word on Dobbs's future. I'm guessing he'll end up at Fox along with former CNN personality and resident conspiracy/hate-peddler Glenn Beck.
I'm sure the folks at http://bastadobbs.com/ are ecstatic, and I'm glad we could play a small role in amplifying their calls for CNN to dump Dobbs the race-bater and Latino hater.
Woo friggin hoo!
