    Source: CNN wanted Lou out

    Dobbs, who a source said had a year and a half to go on his $12 million contract, shocked viewers last Wednesday by announcing he was quitting.

    CNN boss Jonathan Klein and Dobbs, 64, had been publicly feuding over the kind of reporting Dobbs was doing on his show -- especially stories about illegal immigration and the anti-Obama "birther" movement, which contends the president was not born in Hawaii and is not an American citizen.
    Well at least Lou got a nice severance package. As I have said before I like Dobbs, he was the only reason why I watched CNN. With the exceptions of his protectionist trade and drug war stances he was on the ball majority of the time.

    CNN gave reporter Lou Dobbs $8 million in severance pay to leave network

    It looks like Dobbs is a birther, which is reason enough for CNN to find him embarrassing and wanting him gone.

    I guess if you don't tow the ideological line at CNN, you're gone, no matter how successful you are.
