Lou Dobbs Quits

State run media has purged their last dissenting voice over at CNN. Lou has been with CNN since it's inception, and his most recent surge of notoriety came from his vociferous opposition to illegal immigration. Newsmax reports that his relentless nightly opinion pieces angered the illegal immigrant community such that they had been pressuring CNN to get rid of him. I also believe that the advent of the new administrations admitted approach to controlling the media also had something to do with it.

You really can't blame Lou if part of the reason is to turn down the noise a little. It was only two weeks ago when Fox News reported that some one had fired shots at his New Jersey home.

Police Probe Shot Fired at Home of CNN's Lou Dobbs

New Jersey State Police Sgt. Steve Jones said troopers were called to the Dobbs' estate in rural Wantage, N.J., at about 10:30 a.m. on Oct. 5. The investigators who responded to the call were told that Dobbs and his wife were outside their home when they heard a gunshot, and a bullet struck their attic.
 Holding up protest signs that denounce obamacare is violence, and was reported widely as such, however actual gun violence specifically targeted at a prominent voice of the opposition goes pretty much unnoticed.

This unfortunately turns out to be a big win for the administration, and state run media as they gear up to ram down our throats amnesty for the huge undocumented voter block that they are going to need in 2010 and 2012
