Lou Dobbs Joins Fox TV Network to Expand Their Deceptive Propaganda

March 14, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Lou Dobbs – the former anti-immigrant news anchor who left the CNN network on December 2009 after a massive wave of actions calling for his ouster orchestrated by Presente.org– is now joining the Fox Business Network to continue with his long record of spreading lies and conspiracy theories about immigrants and Latinos.

We at Presente.org, a national online advocacy organization that coordinated the BastaDobbs.com campaign in conjunction with more than 40 local and regional Latino organizations from across the country, don’t find this announcement surprising. We all know that both Lou Dobbs and the Fox Network have a known share vision of broadcasting obsessive and extremist views to fuel fear and violence in our communities. Indeed, with this union, we expect nothing less than deceptive propaganda that plays on paranoia, spreads confusion and falsehoods through their airwaves.

The over 100 thousand people who joined Presente.org were victorious for pushing Dobbs out of the legitimate platform that CNN provided him with. Now at Fox, we know that Mr. Dobbs can sure feel like home.
