I personally can say I'm very happy to hear this. He genuinely seemed to thrive on stirring up as many problems as he could, and made existing problems worse. Not the kind of "reporter" that merited full reign of his program content. Too biased.

CNN Finally Fires Lou Dobbs
(visit the link for the full news article)
It took him a long time, but CNN President Jon Klein finally got around to doing what he should have done a long time ago. In order to maintain the professed trademark of his network for objectivity in broadcasting, he realized he had no choice but to fire Lou Dobbs.
Of course, cautious as he is, Klein did not fire the anti-immigration crusader directly, or even alone. He threw Dobbs overboard as part of a vendetta against radio talk show hosts in general.
“The Situation Room,” nor Larry

Beck, O'rielly, Hannity, Dobbs, all on Fox. Great!. I won't even have to chanfge the channel. (Actually, I don't watch Hannity. He gets on my nerves.) In case all you great intellectual elites don't get it, Fox is Number 1 in ratings, and they are climbing, while everyone else is falling. All because someone had the cojones to take on the TPTB.
Lou Dobbs Rumor of Firing Apparently Not True
Story that Lou Dobbs of CNN had been fired got accidently started on the blogosphere by a major media source. As you can see in the above caption this was the story as it appeared on Google before it was pulled. Apparently, what helped get the erroneous story of Dobbs firing get started was a mis-interpretation of a written story by Bill Press on his site billpress.com whereby he gave a scenario that dobbs could be fired in. Apparently, some sources in the main stream media did not check the story out very thoroughly and took his commentary as a statement that Dobbs of CNN had been fired. Many progressives had hoped on Dailykos and throughout the blogosphere that this was the case but were deflated quickly when the story turned out to be not true.
But who knows what's going on in the media world as media executives like Joe Klein president of CNN make statements to the effect of: (para-phrasing) were not going to book talk show hosts. Some in the media world have interpreted these kinds of statements to mean: Hey, Lou, Glenn and Hannity your now going to be held to account for your twisting of the truth and race baiting. What adds to the confusion of media rumors like these are the growing and successful boycotts of racist, inflamers like Glenn Beck. Oh well, sooner or later maybe responsable journalism will return to American airwaves and talk show hosts will emulate men like Walter Cronkite instead of father Coughlin of the 1930's
