Did The Daily Show Get Lou Dobbs Fired?

Remember this absolutely hilarious and scathing clip embarrassing Lou Dobbs for saying that there were still questions about Barack Obama’s birth certificate after his network’s own reporters and even his own guest host had declared the issue dead?

Well now we learn what strained the relationship between Lou Dobbs and CNN this past summer:

He angered management this summer by pressing questions about President Barack Obama’s birth site after CNN reporters determined there was no issue.

Maybe they noticed this and were angered by it independent of sources like The Daily Show pointing out the discrepancy.  But maybe not.  Your Thoughts?

    It was time for Dobbs to be let go, if nothing else he let a lot of his watchers down.
    He was once a person of fairness but when Obama was elected he became a very bitter man and would stop at nothing to run my president down.
    He made his bed now he can try and run for president in 2012, wonder who would put there trust in this man now?
    Not I said the little red hen, not I!!!!

    A single impartial speech about Fox news within the Tv show. He still has a definitely hard immigration scheme. They graduated within the Harvard School. Right now he offers the a single Broadcast Show. He do not such as any American chief executive.

    What’s wrong with you people, you sound like you’ve been drinking the cool-aid. This administration and congress has been slowing taking away our rights. And then you have the illegals that have been stealing and mooching off us for far too long. Everyone wants a free handout and no one wants to work for it. What’s happened to our self-respect? Do your homework and read what has been happening to this country? Lou may have been depressing at times with what he was telling you but he wasn’t afraid of speaking the truth. Unlike some of the puppets that call themselves news people. They sound like parrots and don’t have a brain cell in their heads.

  • Dee is a Ding Dong

    Your comment is laughable. You sounds like you’ve been drinking the crystal-meth aid, while watching Lou Knob of course.
