Lou Dobbs to Quit CNN…

Yes, I’m late to this. My wireless N USB dongle blew up this afternoon and I had to get a replacement…a replacement I’m not happy with as the bandwidth is ridiculously low. So that’s why the blog’s been quiet this afternoon/evening. The New York Times’ Brian Stelter writes that Lou Dobbs is leaving CNN “effective immediately”…

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 effective immediately, two network employees said.

A CNN executive confirmed that Mr. Dobbs will announce his resignation plans on his 7 p.m. program, “Lou Dobbs Tonight.” Wednesday’s program will be his last on CNN, according to one of the employees. His contract was not set to expire until the end of 2011.

Update: Video…

“I’m the last of the original anchors at CNN”?

Um…except when he quit to head up a space website…

  1. I have him on right now I was a little surprised.

  2. unclearthur Says:

    Wow, didn’t see that coming. (hahahahah)

    Don’t expect to see him on Fox until he learns to cry on cue.

  3. From that clip, it sure looks to me that Mr. Dobbs has bigger ideas than emerging on the Fox Business News channel.

    Ross Perot come to anyone else’s mind? Minus the $2 billion and the bad haircut, that is.

    That’s too bad, Spud. Any update on the snorkel?

  5. ^
    Or the job search? You give us much to worry about, Your Spudliness.

  6. I still think he could wind up at FBN… a fight with Gealdo is hardly enough to keep someone from working there.

    But, I agree with Steve… sounds like someone has bigger plans.
