    Gee, I wonder how many liberal names could be put in that sentence.
    I came into this world fighting, screaming and covered in someone else's blood. I have no problem going out the same way.

    WOW!!! Even Coulter has criticized Dobbs, he must certainly be an idiot! Should he be fired? Thoughts?
    Why should he be fired he is a talking head and talking heads can pretty much say what they want even if they are idiots. Look at it this way if they fired everyone who was an idiot and was a Network talking head there wouldn't be too many left now would there ?

    Complaining about immigration in and of itself does not necessarily make one a bigot. That is especially true if the complaint it about the ilegal immigrants.
    To me Dodds it just an opportunist schmoe who was looking for a schtick and the birther freak patrol came along so donned the tin foil hat.

    People are usually bigoted against something.
    That an odd statement "think he is bigoted against ILLEGAL immigration." I am against illegal immigration and I so not see myself as bigoted. I am not against legal immigration becasue "I is one".

    I didn't say people against illegal immigration were bigots, I said Dodd IS bigoted against illegal immigration. Look at the definition of bigot that was provided some posts back.

    Bigot is not a bad thing in every case.

    I think the biggest problem with Lou Dobbs is he is a crass opportunistic blowhard. The biggest problem with his rants on illegal immigration is the fact he essentially pulls s**t out of his @$$ constantly. You would expect a professional journalist to actually get the facts straight, just once. For his position he should be actually investigating sources, which he does not. He takes the most inflammatory of data and uses that as fact, when it clearly is not.

    How is this news? Dobbs has been on a nativist kick since forever. He's his own special brand of kook. The embarrassment is that CNN has kept him on payroll lo these many years.

    There's your problem. I wouldn't make that assumption. You know what they say when you assume?

    Well the problem with Lou Dobbs is he is not reporting, instead he is making up the news as he goes along. Everyone makes mistakes, we have to give some leeway to journalists for honest mistakes. But he has crossed over that line numerous times from honest mistake to knowingly promoting false or discredited information. This whole Birther thing with Dobbs is just another in a long line of Dobb's simply looking more for ratings. So should he be fired? Yes, certainly. Opinions are fine, so long as they are based on a reality, or facts. But if someone wants to throw away journalistic credentials for infotainment then they do not belong on a supposed news network. For me Dobbs is just a sign of just how far CNN has fallen into the whole infotainment crowd.

    Here is a prime example of his journalistic integrity or lack thereof:
