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.
What we now see on cable TV is nothing resembling news. The entertainers who pose as newsmen now routinely spew lies, distortions, and biased opinions or provide a platforms of legitimacy to the sociopaths who do.
Lou Dobbs, you're a journalist and you believe there's something not quite right about the whole Obama birth certificate thing. Go with your gut on this one, arrange a trip to Hawaii, expose the web of lies.
