Lou Dobbs Round-Up: Pressure on CNN Mounts as Latino in America Debuts

 

Over the past few weeks, a wide coalition of groups – America’s Voice included — have been channeling the growing outrage over CNN’s determination to keep controversial host Lou Dobbs in its nightly news lineup. This is especially hypocritical as the network prepares to air it special “Latino in America” series with Soledad O’Brien.

According to Marisa Treviño of Latina Lista today, Presente.org and the BastaDobbs.com campaign launched a new video that takes CNN to task—watch it:

Treviño writes:

CNN must choose — either stand behind Dobbs and admit support of his racist remarks or publicly condemn his rhetoric by removing him from the air.

Once CNN makes up its mind, then it will be a lot easier for the Latino community to decide which cable news channel deserves patronage.
