Fox should replace Geraldo with Dobbs

Was946112

There’s news today that veteran CNN reporter Lou Dobbs is leaving CNN.  This comes as no surprise since he has shifted his program from business news to opinion journalism.  Latino organizations have been putting pressure on CNN for some time to get rid of Dobbs becasue of his out-spoken opinions on illegal immigration (that most Americans agree with, I might add).  The circumstances of Dobbs’ resignation from CNN are not known, but Dobbs did mention that CNN had agreed to release him early from his contract.

Now,  what can we do to get Fox to “release” Geraldo from his contract and replace him with Lou Dobbs?

Rivera has established his liberal bona fides many times over the years and I have been inclined to forgive him because he at least seems to have some affection and appreciation for our military men and women.  But his pro-illegal immigration rants have infuriated me and many other Fox viewers.  The final straw came when he said this about Michelle Malkin, one of my favorite conservative commentators and a frequent guest on Fox:

“Michelle Malkin is the most vile, hateful commentator I’ve ever met in my life,” he says. “She actually believes that neighbors should start snitching out neighbors, and we should be deporting people.

“It’s good she’s in D.C. and I’m in New York,” Rivera sneers. “I’d spit on her if I saw her.”

Geraldo later apologized on the O’Reilly Factor in what Malkin called “a whiny, effeminate, blame-the-victim bleat.” A deep rift opened between the three and Malkin vowed to eschew any further appearances on O’Reilly’s program. She has become a regular on the Glenn Beck Show, however, where she never fails to draw a crowd. Perhaps Ailes will one day offer Michelle her own show.

With Dobbs free from his contract at CNN, now is the perfect time for Fox to dump Geraldo and get a real American on board as his replacement. Lou Dobbs would be a good fit in the Fox evening line-up. We wouldn’t mind if he took Shep’s time slot.

  1. I'm liberal on some issues (like gay marriage) & not on others (like ILLEGAL aliens) & IMO KO is an idiot that should never have left sports talk. BTW, I highly dislike Malkin AS WELL AS Geraldo & I wouldn't waste spit on EITHER one BUT as a SUPPOSED professional Geraldo should NOT have publically made that comment about her.

    What I know is that this country has lost a great man on TV.

    He was the only person on CNN that I watched & I don't watch Fox (do NOT forget that Bill IS FOR AMNESTY after we 'secure our borders') nor MSNBC…except when something major happens (like terrorism @ Ft Hood) then I flip back & forth btwn them BUT now CNN is OFF that list for flipping during the next crisis. I get most of my news from the internet…yes that does include the sites for Fox etc BUT on those sites I don't have to sit through the bull from Bill, Olbermann, Geraldo & etc. BUT IF Lou would go to ANY TV NETWORK I would watch him.

    I am VERY disappointed @ Lou for capitulating & leaving CNN…UNLESS he was really fired & in that case he SHOULD HAVE SAID THAT FLAT OUT.

    It's a sad day for the USA citizenry that they will now be less informed about major important issues (ILLEGAL immigration AND OTHER natl security issues, attacks on the 2nd Amend, attacks on the economics of the middle class, attacks on the USA economy as a whole [like NAFTA, CAFTA, Cap & Trade & etc] & attacks on capitalism in general & other issues) …yes he'll still be on the radio but that is NOT enough. There is speculation in some quarters that he should/may run for political office, however, IMO he was more helpful to the USA on TV than he could be in any office so I DO hope he returns to TV.

    Critics of Lou (ie illegal alien/amnesty supporters) seem to constantly “conveniently” “forget” to add the word ILLEGAL beside alien.

    One of my BIGGEST pet peeves is ppl throwing around words irresponsibly like racism for when that word is misused it weakens the fight against REAL racism. Lou is NOT a racist & YES his wife IS HISPANIC & BTW she AGREES (as do MANY other Hispanics) w/ his stance on illegals INCLUDING MY in-laws. FYI, apparently many also “forget” to mention that Lou SPECIFICALLY mentioned illegals that are NOT Hispanic too…for example Irish illegals in the USA that he has talked about BUT if everybody would be honest they would all admit that the VAST majority of ILLEGALS in this country ARE Hispanic (Mexicans AND OTM's) ALSO the MAJORITY of voices for AMNESTY & other LAX immigration policies are from Hispanics grps…even though some were not LIKE the Irish contingent that Lou discussed that were/are pushing to get amnesty for the Irish illegals in this country.

  2. Sorry you are leaving CNN, Lou. Not to worry. Whither thou goest, I will follow thee.

  3. Lou Dobbs was let go because a certain minority group who put there heritage first an being an
    .American second.got their way..Dizzy Dean lost his job years back because he talk about having a good friend from Tolupo Mississippi .At that time there was racial tention a group of minoritys said that they would not buy Falstaff beer anymore if Dizzy Dean was left to stay
    on the air Falstaff was the advertiser. America is not free when a person can not speak because of the fear of being called a racist

  4. I have been inclined to 'forgiven' Geraldo too. He am a poo-poo head. Us smart people is knowing this, Theo. We is the exsepticions to the rule. Most other people is dumb, an I be knowing this, like you, for as many years as I count on my fingers.

  5. I's gonna make yuo the etiter-in-cheef, pakrict!

  6. what do you think of dobb's latest flip on immigration

    First, though, Mr. Dobbs is working to repair what a spokesman conceded is a glaring flaw: His reputation for antipathy toward Latino immigrants. In a little-noticed interview Friday, Mr. Dobbs told Spanish-language network Telemundo he now supports a plan to legalize millions of undocumented workers, a stance he long lambasted as an unfair “amnesty.”
    “Whatever you have thought of me in the past, I can tell you right now that I am one of your greatest friends and I mean for us to work together,” he said in a live interview with Telemundo's Maria Celeste. “I hope that will begin with Maria and me and Telemundo and other media organizations and others in this national debate that we should turn into a solution rather than a continuing debate and factional contest.”

    If Dobbs does go to faux-news he will be able to continue to just make things up.
