LIBS ADMITTING TO OUSTING LOU DOBBS

Only way you gonna know how the libs are thinking is join them and so here is what I got from one of the sites I subscribe to

Thank you.

Last night was Lou Dobbs' last show on CNN. Dobbs' sudden departure is a powerful reminder of what we are capable of when we work together. For years, Dobbs used his prominent platform on CNN as a perch to spread hate, misinformation, and wild conspiracy theories. Thanks in no small part to your continued dedication and activism, starting today, Dobbs no longer has that platform.

Watch a video highlighting our efforts against Dobbs:

In July, Dobbs followed up years of trafficking in fact-free, racially charged conspiracy theories by promoting "birther" paranoia about President Obama's birth certificate on CNN's airwaves. In response, thousands of you signed our petition and sent emails calling on CNN president Jon Klein to address CNN's Lou Dobbs problem. In August, after CNN tried to sweep the issue under the rug, your generosity helped us raise enough money to air an ad calling on the network to credibly address the issue. After CNN rejected the ad, it aired on MSNBC.

In September, in partnership with NDN, America's Voice, the National Council of La Raza, LULAC, and more than a dozen other prominent progressive, Hispanic, and civil rights groups, we launched DropDobbs.com, which placed new focus on Dobbs' ongoing hate speech and misinformation. After CNN still refused to address its Dobbs problem, you once again generously helped us raise enough money to air an ad made with our friends at America's Voice. Yet again, CNN refused to air the ad, but the message we sent was clear:The American people had had enough of Dobbs' hate speech, and we weren't going to drop the issue.

Claiming to have ousted Dobbs is a far cry from Dobbs quitting for his own reasons.

So much for the “I may disagree with what you say, but I’ll defend your right to say it” BS the libs used to spout.

I guess I can respect them a bit more now that they’re being honest - any dissent from the approved groupthink will meet with destruction.

CNN is a sinking ship, and this isn’t the first time Dobbs has left them.

I didn’t write the Media Matters email, Media Matters did.

If you are shot at, and persecuted every day at work, I call that Ousted

Thanx for ousting Lou Dobbs. This now allows me to re-program my TV’s to skip the CNN channel. Before I had to keep CNN on the active list in case Lou was on-air.

When he shows up on Fox and gets 4X the ratings, I wonder who will be laughing then.

Are these same libs admitting to sending out the shooter who almost took out Lou’s wife, in front of his home?

This may increase the FBI’s suspect pool.

Fox should have offered CNN a trade: “We’ll take Dobbs, you can have Geraldo.”

They didn't oust just Dobbs, they ousted viewers. Proving once again that liberalism
is a mental disease.

Geraldo is a pawn for Fox to show “fairness”

Dobbs will go to a network that appreciates him and does not try to tie his hands.
He will come back bigger and better and will kick whos ever butt c.n.n. puts up against him.

Dear CNN:

We’ll take Dobbs and give you Shep Smith, Geraldo and a lib to be named later.

Signed,

The folks at FOX

Are they bragging about bringing CNN down to its lowest ratings ever? What tools the left is, still drinking the kool-aid by the pitcher full.

I like a two for one deal. We’ll give you Geraldo AND Shep for Lou Dobbs. . . and if they still hold out, we will throw in Liz Wiehl to boot.

Just like trading baseball cards when I was a kid.

CNN is tanking. The Liberals ousted Dobbs? He’s probably laughing at them saying “You can have it”

He should go to Fox News as the “player to be named later” in the Paula Zahn trade. Or was that Bill Hemmer?

Apparently he couldn't imagine much. All he did after that was hang around and be kind of transparent.

It really is a Pyrrhic victory for the Libs. They just guaranteed that CNN’s ratings will fall even lower.
