Lou Dobbs: One Of The Creepiest Authoritarian Style Newsperson From Fox News Was Just Fired Because Of A Multi Billion Lawsuit Against Fox For Its Lies

Fox News has been spreading fake news for a while but recently a multi-billion dollar lawsuit was filed against Fox for lying (the only way Fox lies can be challenged, apparently) and thus Fox let go of its most creepy authoritarian style newscaster. This post simply commemorates this event.


Daily Show:
Farewell to Lou Dobbs, the most North Korean broadcaster America has ever seen


Media Matters: Lou Dobbs Tonight was just canceled. It won’t be missed. Here are some of the defining moments of Lou Dobbs' Fox Business show during the Trump era

Lou Dobbs Tonight has been canceled at Fox Business. Lou Dobbs had joined Fox after his birtherism led to him being forced out at CNN, became known at Fox for his over-the-top pro-Trump propaganda. Former President Donald Trump frequently tweeted about and made decisions based on Dobbs' program. The news about his departure comes only a day after Dobbs and Fox News was named in a nearly 2.7 billion dollar lawsuit filed by voting technology company Smartmatic; there are indications that a similar suit from Dominion Voting Systems is forthcoming. The sudden schism is the culmination of an erratic, conspiratorial, and very bigoted career that became increasingly deranged throughout the Trump era. Here are some of the moments that defined what Dobbs' show had become during the Trump era.

GIULIANI: Like that's not good because a Republican did it. We'd rather -- we'd rather have the unemployment, and not have Trump around.

DOBBS: Do you doubt it for a minute?

GIULIANI: No, it's because they hate Trump so much, and they love their country less, and they love their people less.

TOM HOMAN (GUEST): Well exactly. First of all, a lot of protesters nationwide have shown up to ICE facilities, it makes you wonder if they even got a job. Besides this, they got to understand, ICE employees, especially our contractors that run our facilities for us, they're on edge Lou. And I don't know what happened in this incident but our employees are on edge. We've had someone shoot at an ICE office yesterday in San Antonio, barely missing, by inches, an employee, murdering one of our employees. I showed a video today on my Fox -- I did a Fox op-ed today and I released a video today from a one of our facilities in Tacoma, Washington, where the man shot up the building then he tried to blow it up with propane tanks and catch the building on fire - which would kill 1300 people in that building, many were locked up. Hundreds of immigrants would have perished in that if he would've been successful. Thank god Tacoma PD were able to take him out quickly. ICE employees are on edge. They're under attack. And our contractors are under attack.
