Will Lou Dobbs Head to Fox Business?

Lou_Dobbs_7-22.jpgNY Times’ Brian Stelter reports that CNN anchor Lou Dobbs recently met with FNC/FBN chairman Roger Ailes and could be entertaining ideas of leaving CNN and moving Fox Business Network:

Mr. Dobbs, an administration critic who calls himself an independent, met for dinner with Roger E. Ailes, the chairman of Fox News, last month, according to two people with direct knowledge of the meeting. One of the people said Mr. Dobbs is a potential hire for the Fox Business Network, the ratings starved, two-year-old spin-off of Fox News. Mr. Ailes has shown willingness to raid other networks for Fox Business talent, adding the controversial radio host Don Imus this month and bringing aboard Mr. Stossel in a few weeks.

Dobbs has been a controversial figure for CNN and now, some immigration advocacy groups see the network’s new “Latino in America” documentary as an opportunity to reignite criticism of Dobbs and CNN. Frank Sharry, Executive Director of America’s Voice, issued a statement saying, “Truth is, when it comes to Latinos in America, Lou Dobbs is the elephant in the room…If the ‘Latino in America’ series is to be considered credible, doesn’t the series have to deal with that fact?” (h/t: Johnny Dollar)
