Controversial TV commentator Lou Dobbs--"controversial" because he delivered his conservative views on left-leaning CNN--will join Fox Business Network, according to the cable channel.
The news comes exactly a year after Dobbs' final program aired on CNN after almost 30 years with the cable news pioneer.
CNN couldn't quite stomach Dobbs' strong stance against illegal immigration and that he aired some segments on Barack Obama's citizenship (even though he said he himself believes Obama is a citizen).
While CNN shied away from reporting on rampant illegal immigration--an ongoing event that has shaken this country loose from its fiscal and social moorings--it eagerly airs specials such as Black in America, Gay in America, and Planet in Peril, all politically correct milquetoast pieces. Not exactly hard-hitting journalism.
Dobbs must have offended some liberal sensibilities by not being so politically correct. In other words, he addresses real issues, and in doing so will join fellow liberal media refugees John Stossel and Glenn Beck.
Like them, he'll have the opportunity to speak his mind freely on Fox Business Channel, when his show airs early next year.
