Lou Dobbs is leaving CNN (video statement after the story).  John Stossel left ABC after a long tenure, then went to FoxNews.  Is this where Dobbs is heading?  There’s a lot of animosity against Lou Dobbs by Latinos and illegal alien supporters over Dobbs’ negative reporting on illegal alien issues.  If he happens to be reporting the truth, why the ire?
 
The first video is Lou Dobbs talking about the Amnesty Bill where he states that the following items were in an immigration reform bill working its way through Congress:  Legal status for illegals after 24 hours, without a completed background check; taxpayers would pay for all lawyers to represent illegal aliens; "permanent" temporary visas, which could be renewed indefinitely; amnesty for an estimated 30,000 gang members, provided they renounce their gang membership; change border security by cutting 800 miles of border fence to 200 miles.  Like Dobbs, I don’t have a problem with people coming into this country for a better life—that’s what makes America so great.  I have a problem with people invading this country illegally, taking what they don’t deserve and didn’t work for, and our government making legal American citizens pay for their wants and needs.   This is just disgusting!  Our government consistently rewards bad behavior and punishes good behavior.  What’s the incentive for being law-abiding citizens?

Longtime CNN host Lou Dobbs shocked his viewers Wednesday by announcing that he would be leaving the network effective immediately.
 
The daily host of "Lou Dobbs Tonight" addressed his viewers after giving the day’s headlines and told them Wednesday’s show would be his final time in the anchor chair.
 
"This will be my last broadcast," he said.
 
He said CNN had allowed him to be released from his contract early and that he was considering a number of options for the next stage in his career.
"I will let you know when I set my course," he said. He said he wanted to "contribute positively to a better understanding of the great issues of our day."
 
CNN President Jon Klein in a statement hailed Dobbs’ "appetite for big ideas, the megawatt smile and larger than life presence he brought to our newsroom."
"With characteristic forthrightness, Lou has now decided to carry the banner of advocacy journalism elsewhere," Klein said. "We respect his decision."
 
The longest-running anchor on CNN’s air, Dobbs was one of the nation’s leading financial journalists before turning his program in a more opinionated direction. His persistent advocacy against illegal immigration angered many.
 

"I’m the last of the original anchors here on CNN and I’m proud to have had the privilege of helping to built the world’s first news network," he said.
 
CNN’s average prime-time audience was third behind Fox and MSNBC during October, and it was even eclipsed by sister network HLN among younger viewers, according to the Nielsen Co.
 
New York Times‘ Media Decoder blog first reported Dobbs’ move.
 
Times reporter Brian Stelter tweeted on Wednesday evening, "NYT learns that Lou Dobbs’ resignation is effective immediately; tonight’s program will be his last on CNN." Another message sent shortly after: "A Fox spokesperson tells the NYT, ‘We have not had any discussions with Lou Dobbs for Fox News or Fox Business.’"
 
Here’s video of Dobbs’ announcement:
