    I have heard of political manipulation of all kinds...but as the Brits would say, this nomination is very clever..crafty and cunning to be precise! The only problem is if this guy challenges Crist!

    UNRELATED BUT GOOD

    CNN's Lou Dobbs problem just got a whole lot worse.

    On September 15 and 16, Dobbs is scheduled to broadcast his radio show from Capitol Hill as a leading voice of the annual "Hold Their Feet to the Fire" legislative advocacy conference and rally sponsored by the rabidly anti-immigrant organization Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

    Founded by a man with a history of espousing racist beliefs and who remains on its board, FAIR is labeled as a "hate group" by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Dobbs' participation -- and, through him, CNN's -- will bestow mainstream legitimacy on the rally and on FAIR, something FAIR recognizes and is bragging about to its members.

    Dobbs must not be allowed to participate in this event. Email CNN and ask them to stop Dobbs:

    CNN's association with FAIR through Dobbs is a major stain on an organization that calls itself "the most trusted name in news." FAIR was founded by John Tanton, a man who has a long history of making racist statements. In 1986, Tanton reportedly wrote: "As Whites see their power and control over their lives declining, will they simply go quietly into the night?" In 2001, Tanton even praised the work of John Trevor, a notorious Nazi sympathizer, saying his work should form "a guidepost to what we must follow again this time."

    FAIR has been sharply criticized in the past for funding racially charged ads, including several in 2004 targeting former Democratic Rep. Martin Frost and former Republican Sen. Chuck Hagel that featured dark-skinned men loitering on street corners and running from the police. In an editorial, the Lincoln (Nebraska) Journal Star called the ads "trash" that "incite hate," "play upon stereotypical racial fears," and "are full of half-truths and lies."

    And yet, rather than denouncing the group, Dobbs is scheduled to be a leading voice at the upcoming FAIR rally. What's more, his CNN show has cited FAIR as a credible source on immigration issues no fewer than six times in the last year. Email CNN and ask them to stop Dobbs from participating in the event:

    http://mediamatters.org/stopdobbs

    As Media Matters has highlighted repeatedly, Dobbs represents an ongoing threat to CNN's credibility as a serious news organization, in no small part because of his one-sided and error-prone coverage of immigration issues and his continued use of his CNN show to lend prominence to hatemongering groups like FAIR. The attention and legitimacy he gave to the racially charged "birther" movement -- and CNN's support for his actions -- did even greater damage to that credibility. But the consequences of his participation in the upcoming FAIR rally would be far worse. It would officially put CNN on the side not of credible journalism, but of a hate group.

    Email CNN and ask them to stop Dobbs from participating in the event:

    Thank you for your continued help in holding CNN accountable.

    Sincerely,



    Eric Burns
    President,
    Media Matters for America

    'Dobbs must not be allowed to participate in this event.'

    Are these people for real? That sounds like slightly more than 'fact-checking'.

    In their own words, I'd say that this represents an ongoing threat to MediaMatters' credibility as a serious fact-checking organization! But do they really have any? Activist fact-checking is, by definition, a joke.

    MediaMatters fact-checking is alright. However, I disagree with the calls for Lou to withdraw. He should do it, show his true colors, allign himself with the racists.

    Glen Beck, Bill O'Reilly and Hannity and Coombs should also participate with the racists...and the racists Kirkorian, Camarotta, Jessica Vaughan, Dan Stein, Steve Malinga and Heather MacDonald should join in as well along with Tancredo, Rohrbacher, entire Georgia GOP delegation in the House, Vitter, Demented DeMint and Jeff Sessions should join in as well along with folks at VDare..now that is showing true colors!
