Lou Dobbs Resigns from CNN

La Opinin, Posted: Nov 11, 2009

LOS ANGELES -- Longtime CNN talk show host Lou Dobbs, whose position on immigration has made him a controversial figure, announced his resignation on Wednesday. "This is my last show on CNN," Dobbs said in a live broadcast. Until recently, Dobbs was known as one of the premiere financial analysts on television. However, his program gradually became a forum to explain his sometimes controversial political views. Dobbs argued against illegal immigration in a way that angered many Latinos, who felt that his attacks were aimed specifically at the Hispanic community. For example, he blamed the undocumented for "importing" diseases like leprosy and bird flu. He also stirred controversy within CNN when he dedicated numerous shows to the question of whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States. Latino advocacy organizations launched a campaign against Lou Dobbs, calling on CNN to fire the commentator. The campaign BastaDobbs.com recently reported that it had collected 100,000 signatures.
