As I watched the sad eyes of Lou Dobbs last night while he bade an abrupt farewell to his long career at CNN, I shed the tears that he apparently couldn't. I was inspired by the power of the movement to oust him.
It didn't have to end this way for Lou Dobbs. He could have been a contender. But Dobbs, a supremely self-confident man who often mentions his Harvard education in private conversation, just wouldn't listen.
Countless journalists have produced reports documenting the falsehoods and fakery that pass for "news" on Dobbs' show. Yet, all we get from Dobbs are half-hearted apologies, lame excuses and more of the same.
