Media Matters has released its ad targeting Lou Dobbs over his promotion of the "birthers" movement. The ad is set to appear on CNN during Dobbs' program Tuesday, and will appear on Fox News and MSNBC as well.
In the commercial, Media Matters calls for CNN to address the Dobbs situation more seriously than it has thus far.
"It's time for 'The Most Trusted Name in News' to live up to its slogan," the commercial proclaims. "Let CNN know there's nothing 'legitimate' about racially charged paranoia."
Upon learning of the ad campaign, Dobbs called Media Matters "a rabid, left-wing operation."
