The secret's out.But is he moving to Fox?

Lou Dobbs, the longtime CNN anchor whose anti-immigration views made him a TV lightning rod, plans to announce Wednesday that he is leaving the network, two network employees said.

Said resignation is to be announced on tonight’s program, which begins a few minutes from this post. It will also apparently be his last.

Glenn Beck moved to Fox – this makes sense in that context.

Lou Dobbs QuitWatch #1: pitched as “Mr. Independent” in the teaser, but no hints.

Lou Dobbs QuitWatch #2: first story focuses on how “political correctness” prevented military from looking into Hasan. He’ll probably wait until the end to drop the bomb.

Lou Dobbs QuitWatch #3: IT’S OFFICIAL.

What would you have to do to get fired if you were Lou Dobbs? Besides your actual show, that is.

Boo, fucking, hoo…

There’s a special place in Hell reserved for these people, and that place is called Fox News.

My money is on a live boy. A live mexican boy, to be exact.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: What would Pat Buchanan have to do to get fired? He hasn’t done it yet.

@blogenfreude:

I don’t think you can be fired if you are the “Giant Gaping Asshole of the Universe”. It’s a hereditary thing.

@blogenfreude: MSNBC needs Uncle Pat to prove they’re not librul. Starbucks Joe is too moderate.

Isn’t it always?
