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.
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
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.
