Today’s big news: Lou Dobbs has quit CNN to go beyond his role on cable television. His last show aired yesterday. The dreary John King is his slated replacement.
As I noted here a few months ago, CNN had been under pressure from the SPLC and NCLR to get rid of Dobbs, although that doesn’t seem to have been the cause of his departure. I wouldn’t be surprised if he followed Glenn Beck to Fox News.
