CNN Shift: Lou Dobbs on Jon Klein

There is no love lost between ex-CNN anchor Lou Dobbs and Jonathan Klein, the man who fired him in November.

That’s why Dobbs made no attempt to disguise his glee yesterday when asked for a comment on Klein’s sudden departure earlier that day as CNN/U.S. president

“I’m sure it’s just a coincidence that today is my birthday,” Dobbs told TV Newser, chuckling. “But you’d have to confirm with CNN management that it’s a coincidence.”

For the record, Dobbs claims to be 47. He’s only off by 18 years.

En route to his birthday dinner with his kids and grandkids, Dobbs said he was thrilled with CNN’s naming HLN’s Ken Jautz as Klein’s successor.

“I like and respect Ken. We’ve been friends for years. I don’t think they could have done better than select him. I just wish they had done it a lot sooner.”
