CAMPUS GROUP PROTESTS APPEARANCE BY LOU DOBBS

Rate this Entry

Wish more groups would do the same.



And I wish members of the pro-immigration community would boycott appearing on his show. I think some of these pro-immigration groups and individuals hope that their appearance will somehow ensure that a little of the pro-immigration side will get out there, but if you watch the show you'll agree that it's usually Dobbs and the anti-immigrant speaker dominating the discussion between berating the pro-immigration guest. And just the mere choice of stories covered guarantees the pro-immigration "guest" is on the defensive.



I know a lot of people in pro-immigration organizations read this blog and I hope readers from those organizations consider joining in such a boycott. And such groups should tell pro-immigration members of Congress that appearing on Dobbs' show is also bad for the pro-immigration cause. It's time to stop giving Lou Dobbs any cover as far as claiming to be balanced. Don't be an enabler. 



CNN likes to report news and not be the subject of a negative story in and of itself, particularly those suggesting it is biased in its coverage. Send CNN a message that broadcasting Lou Dobbs' nightly hatefest is not acceptable for a credible news organization.  Let them know you and your organization's representatives won't appear on the show or assist its producers in any way.

    A better strategy is to boycott CNN itself - Lock, stock and barrel! Cable laws should be ammended to allow consumers the right to select channels. I will be the first to get unsubscribe from C(ommunist) N(ativist) N(etwork), the day such a law is passed.

    Apparently, CNN seems to be benefiting from this nut.....his show has moved from it's 5:00 pm slot (CST) to 7:00, i.e, primetime tv viewing. I guess he's now competing with O'Rielly on FOX.

    I agree with you A H1B, as much as like Anderson Cooper, I too will be the first to get rid of CNN and FOX.

    *Lou Dog's, I meant Dobbs', reporting on immigration of both types (LEGAL and ILLEGAL) is full false claims. He is spreading lies, on a reputed network like CNN. It's really shameful that he has been allowed to do it for such a long time!

    He said H1 don't pay taxes.. don't they?
    And another example, he said there is no limit on H1B. Isn't there a limit of 65K per year?

    My understanding is he is of Nazi mentality, he wants to attribute all the problems that America faces today to immigrants. He preaches hatred and CNN gives a solid platform for that purpose.

    It's high time to show him that his lies would not be taken anymore. Lets join our hands to expose his lies!

    *PS: If Mitt Romney can confuse between Obama and Osama.. why can't I do a mistake with Dobbs' name? :-)

    It may not be very relevant, but I never thought ICE can be that scary...

    I urge the people on this board who want a fair and free america to write to Congressman Rep. Louie Gohmert and ask that he check himself into a mental asylum. He is trying to hoodwink the constitution and pass a rule that would create a floodgate of immigrants to this country.

    Patrick, I hope that the US deports you to a country where you are hated as much as you hate immigrants here. Please quit writing on this blog and go back to your clan meetings, I heard that Lou Dobbs is attending tonight, you won't want to miss it.

    Greg, I hope you delete Patricks post.

    Yes, I meant Klan meetings, sorry. I guess that's where he is now.

    Greg, I understand what you mean, but trying to use your blog to advance an agenda and have people call a congressman is just wrong.

    I would love to get into the minds of people like Patrick or even Lou Dobbs, just so I can understand why they have so much hate, it's just amazing.

    So where does one send a complaint about Dobbs? I searched briefly and could not find any feedback form on cnn.com. Myself I do not watch TV at all but his articles on cnn.com are full of hate and lies...

    I have stopped watching CNN for good. Stop watching and it surely will show up in viewer stats. slowly but surely.

    You have to be a Nielsen viewer to affect the ratings. They're randomly chosen, and I think its just 1,000 people or somewhere in that range.

    A better strategy would be to boycott Lou Dobbs advertisers.

    There may be one way to do it
    Many immigrants use Dish/DirecTV becuase of foreign program packages. If petition were send to them with thousands of customer signatures asking that CNN be removed from their package, it would create some waves. The same could be done for Time warner Cable in NYC and other cable providers in major cities. Such a campaign would get attention IMHO.

    more outsourcing...if it's so bad, why does it keep growing and why do people embrace newer ways?
