NY Post: Dobbs exit due to birth certificate
O’Reilly: Lou Dobbs re: leaving CNN (video/text)

The NY POST is reporting CNN gave Lou Dobbs a $8M severance. Probably why it took so long for him to leave. He had 18 months to go on his $12M contract.

Dobbs had the audacity to mention the birth certificate and state media made good on their threat to fire those who did.

He maintained from the very beginning that he thought barry was born in Hawaii. What he questioned was why barry wasn’t releasing it. That of course got lost in the soundbites.

Post quotes Dobbs via Atlanta Journal Constitution:

What they do is their business. I tried to accommodate them as best I could, but I’ve said for many years now that neutrality is not part of my being.

I truly believe that it’s also a liberating moment for me.
