Hater Lou Dobbs is quitting CNN

Lou Dobbs is a racist

Lou Dobbs has announced that he is quitting CNN.  “The longest-running anchor on CNN’s air, Dobbs was one of the nation’s leading financial journalists before turning his program in a more opinionated direction. His persistent advocacy against illegal immigration angered many.” according to Fox News.

Good!  Why does CNN need this hater anyway?

Dobbs said a shot was fired at his wife outside their New Jersey home and he said it’s because of his critics,” according to the New York Daily News.

Well, how many Latino immigrants have been beat up because of hatred fanned by Dobbs?

What will Dobbs do next?  I could see him going to the Fox Network, where he would fit right in with all their other haters.  Or maybe he will run for President, as a Republican.  Imagine him and Palin on a ticket together.  The nutters will be out of their minds!

So what will be Dobb’s legacy at CNN?  How about getting it wrong?  Check out these examples:

Here are 4 funky “facts” Dobbs has reported and their respective truths:

 Dobbs’ Funky “Fact” 1: In 2005, a segment on Dobbs show reported that an “invasion of illegal aliens” was bringing “highly contagious diseases” to America “decades after those diseases had been eradicated” here. The show then reported that more than 7,000 new cases of leprosy had been reported in the previous three years.

 Truth: The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services shows that the new number of new leprosy cases from 2002 through 2004 was 398. Also, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, new cases of leprosy have been declining in the United States since 1988.

Dobbs’ Funky “Fact” 2: On May 19, 2006, Robert Rector, a guest on Dobbs’ show, reported that the number of immigrants that would come to the United States if the immigration-reform bill under review in the Senate passed would be more than 100 million over the next 10 years. Dobbs supported Rector’s fuzzy math, stating, “Thank you for paying close attention.”

Truth: Rector’s numbers aren’t even possible. A total of 100 million is almost equal to the entire current population of Mexico. The San Francisco Chronicle reported on June 20, 2006, that Rector’s projections were exaggerated and did not take into account the effects of emigration and used unrealistic estimates of naturalization.

Dobbs’ Funky “Fact” 3: On Oct. 30, 2003, a Dobbs correspondent stated that immigration would cause an economic loss of up to $10 billion, according a National Academy of Sciences report.

Truth: The National Academy of Sciences report actually stated that immigration would cause a net gain in the U.S. gross national product of from $1 billion to $10 billion.

Dobbs’ Funky “Fact” 4: On Feb. 10, 2006, “Dobbs’ Tonight” quoted state Rep. Russell Pearce of Arizona as saying, “You know, the illegal aliens kill more people on an annual basis than we probably lost in the Iraq war to date in the United States.”

Truth: No data existed at the time on the number of murders committed by undocumented workers. As of February 2006, approximately 2,500 U.S. members had died in Iraq.
