Lou Dobbs is a Flaming Asshole

I used to enjoy watching Lou Dobbs on CNN when his show was called Moneyline. At that time his brand of economic populism was more or less aimed against corporate America and there was nothing of the xenophobic anti-Mexican ranting of recent years. Now I can’t stand the sight of him.

With his new policy of pandering to the low IQ racists that even a craven son-of-a-bitch like Bill O’Reilly is ashamed of claiming—the Flat Earth “birther” crowd—it’s high time the public start calling Lou Dobbs for what he is: A FLAMING ASSHOLE and demanding his hasty departure from normally respectable cable news outlet, CNN.

CNN doesn’t need a fuckwit like Dobbs destroying the organization’s decent reputation for delivering (reasonably) unbiased information. Let Fox News have him! CNN president Jon Klein should seriously be considering firing Dobbs’ dumb ass today and to put a little pressure on Klein, Media Matters has made this commercial and wants to buy as much airtime on CNN, Fox News and MSNBC as it can. Consider donating to help rid CNN of its Lou Dobbs problem once and for all.

We can do far better than this, Mr. Klein. Make your children proud, mi’fren.

Our friend Douglas Rushkoff has written about the ESPN video virus from an interesting perspective over at Tina Brown’s Daily Beast this morning:

But the Andrews video has also fueled the spread of highly toxic computer viruses, and quite probably financial thievery and terrorism, by hackers who know the real law of the Internet: The closer an Internet user is to a set of videotaped breasts, the more likely he (and 99% of those who fall into this trap are male) will be to click on whatever he’s told to.

Porn has become our enemies’ ultimate control mechanism, turning a nation of late-night Internet horndogs into an unconscious army of cyberterrorists. Talk about sleeper cells.

Nice turn of phrase there, Douglas!
