Don't let the door hit you in the ass.

AP: NEW YORK – Longtime CNN host Lou Dobbs shocked his viewers Wednesday by announcing that he would be leaving the network effective immediately.

He said CNN had allowed him to be released from his contract early and that he was considering a number of options for the next stage in his career.

CNN’s average prime-time audience was third behind Fox and MSNBC during October, and it was even eclipsed by sister network HLN among younger viewers, according to the Nielsen Co.

Good riddance you xenophobic, old coot. I wonder if the fact that so many groups have called for his firing had anything to do with CNN releasing him from his contract so easily. Dobbs jumped the shark when he started his rantings of illegal aliens coming across the border to pillage and plunder. Dobbs hit the wall when he supported the “birther” conspiracy, claiming Obama was born in Kenya. In other words, Fox News will most likely be making him an offer he can’t refuse.

I believe Media Matters has said it best.

“For too long, CNN provided Lou Dobbs with its stamp of approval as he pursued a dangerous, one-sided and all too often false conspiracy tinged crusade against immigrants,” said Eric Burns, president of Media Matters. “This is a happy day for all those who care about this nation of immigrants and believe in the power of media to elevate the political discourse.”

For a history of the evil old man that is Lou Dobbs, here is Media Matters again, with their collection of his hate speech, lies, slander, and just plain crazy ramblings.

Bullet hits Lou Dobbs’ NJ home with wife nearby

AP: WANTAGE, N.J. – Police in New Jersey are trying to determine who fired a bullet that struck CNN commentator Lou Dobbs’ home as his wife stood nearby. State police Sgt. Stephen Jones says Dobbs’ wife and driver were outside the home Oct. 5 when they heard the gunshot. Jones says the bullet didn’t penetrate the siding and fell to the ground outside.

Dobbs mentioned the bullet earlier this week on CNN and his radio show.

Dobbs says he had been receiving threatening phone calls for weeks. On his radio show, he connected the gunshot to his advocacy for a crackdown on illegal immigration and to his opponents’ rhetoric.

The home is on a farm in Wantage, about 50 miles northwest of New York City.

It is small-game hunting season, but no hunters were seen in the area.

I have a feeling he will blame it on illegal immigrants.
