Putting the boots to Lou Dobbs

Wow. The NY Times editorial staff seems to put an OK on every American foreign policy travesty it writes about but it puts the boots to poor old Lou Dobbs today.

Lou Dobbs has left CNN, or maybe the other way around. Whichever it is, an old, odd, infuriating-to-many mismatch of sober network and strident host is over. CNN, for now anyway, changes back to something closer to the nonpartisan, straight-up news network it wants you to think of it as, different from its ideologically branded rivals Fox News and MSNBC. The real question is the effect the change will have on Mr. Dobbs.

Mr. Dobbs, once a pinstriped purveyor of financial news, has burrowed deep into the popular culture as a self-styled populist enraged by illegal immigration.

A Farewell to Lou seems a little shrill for the old grey lady but whatever gets your mojo going. Pity it isn’t some of the real issues of the day.
