Adieu Lou

The New York Times is reporting (here) that Lou Dobbs is leaving CNN, where he rose from a lowly business reporter to chief blowhard (bloviatus maximus). He'll be remembered for bringing to "journalism" the kind of mean and xenophobic populism that Pat Buchanan brought to politics. There appears to be no truth in the rumor that Dobbs's 7 pm time slot on CNN will be taken over by an illegal immigrant in Atlanta or outsourced to CNN's China bureau.
