Lou Dobbs, the longtime CNN anchor whose anti-immigration views have made him a TV lightning rod, said Wednesday that he is leaving the cable news channel effective immediately.


Sitting before an image of an American flag on his television set, he said “some leaders in media, politics and business have been urging me to go beyond the role here at CNN and to engage in constructive problem solving as well as to contribute positively to the great understanding of the issues of our day.”



“I’m considering a number of options and directions,” Mr. Dobbs added. A transcript of his remarks is available here. (http://bit.ly/38J6nn)

Mr. Dobbs met with Roger Ailes, the chairman of the Fox News Channel, in September. (http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/10/12/lou-dobbs-next-home-fox-business/?apage=2) At the time Mr. Dobbs was viewed as a potential hire for the Fox Business Network. But a Fox spokesperson said Wednesday, “We have not had any discussions with Lou Dobbs for Fox News or Fox Business.”

Just the more conservative ones, Lou Dobbs is one of the last. I'm actually suprised he didn't leave before Hemmer.

Perhaps Fox can trade Geraldo Rivera for a CNN janitor or something?

Over in DUmmyland they are saying Fox will trade Shep Smith for Dobbs. We can only hope.
