Now that Lou Dobbs is off CNN, the National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) is seeking to have him knocked off radio as well. The group accuses Dobbs, whose wife is Hispanic, of anti-Hispanic hate speech.
“The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) and the Latino community congratulate CNN management for directing Lou Dobbs to either return to being a credible journalist or find another home. Lou Dobbs’ editorializing and hate speech-aimed directly at the Latino community-had become an embarrassment to CNN and placed the network’s integrity in great question. Dobbs’ continuous misrepresentations and misinformation regarding the Latino community had become a cause of great concern to all people of good will who work day-in and day-out to make this a better nation,” said a statement sent to RBR-TVBR by NHMC President & CEO Alex Nogales.
“As Dobbs leaves CNN the Latino community will turn its ear toward the radio network that allows and encourages him to continue his shrill hate speech and factual misrepresentations,” said Nogales. That would be United Stations Radio Networks. As reported, USRN told RBR-TVBR that Dobb’s exit from CNN would have no impact on his continuing radio broadcasts. USRN’s syndicated radio shows featuring Dobbs include a daily show, a weekend “best of” show and daily financial reports.
