Lou Dobbs’ New Home?
The New York Times reported this week that Lou Dobbs of CNN and leader of The Independent Nation met with Roger Ailes of Fox News last month. Unnamed people familiar with the meeting told the Times, “Mr. Dobbs is a potential hire for the Fox Business Network.”
To those of a certain age, Dobbs is as remembered as host of Moneyline (the 7 p.m. lead-in to Crossfire) as he is for his outstanding independent show, and like Glenn Beck before him, he is increasingly out of place at the network Ted Turner founded. Both parties could do much worse.
