Glory be — this announcement follows meetings between Lou “The Brown Menace Is Upon Us” Dobbs and Faux News Channel’s Roger Ailes. He made his intentions known during his 7PM ET show, talking about his “honest” commentary and how he will “pursue other opportunities.” The bigoted stench has left the building. (NYT):
Lou Dobbs, the longtime CNN anchor whose anti-immigration views have made him a TV lightning rod, plans to announce Wednesday that he is leaving the network, two network employees said.
A CNN executive confirmed that Mr. Dobbs will announce his resignation plans on his 7 p.m. program. His resignation is effective immediately; tonight’s program will be his last on CNN. His contract was not set to expire until the end of 2011.
Mr. Dobbs informed his staff members of his intentions in a meeting Wednesday afternoon. He did not immediately respond to a telephone call seeking comment.
