Call on CNN to Fire Dobbs

Jul 30 2009

Lou Dobbs has a history of spreading false and misleading information that poisons conversations around race and immigration. Now he's using his radio and television shows to give legitimacy to bogus questions about President Obama's citizenship, and therefore eligibility to be president. It's a conspiracy theory designed to stoke racial paranoia, and it should have no place at an organization like CNN.

Join us in calling on CNN President Jonathan Klein to fire Dobbs now.

UPDATE: In November 2009, Dobbs resigned from CNN after a chorus of voices, including more than 25,000 ColorOfChange members, called for his ouster.

This campaign has concluded.
