    Lou Dobbs Tonight on Fox Business Network was canceled Friday. It will be replaced by Fox Business Tonight with alternating guest hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman for the time being.

    The cancellation, first reported by The Los Angeles Times, came a day after the network, Dobbs and others were sued for $2.7 billion.

    The change in programming was routine and had nothing to do with the lawsuit, a Fox News Media spokesperson said. “As we said in October, FOX News Media regularly considers programming changes and plans have been in place to launch new formats as appropriate post-election, including on FOX Business – this is part of those planned changes. A new 5PM program will be announced in the near future.”

    Right – Fox Business routinely cancels their highest-rated shows just for the hell of it. Nothing to do with the lawsuit LOL!

    Dobbs spent years at KING TV in the 70’s and I could swear he had liberal views back then. I guess he might choose his views based on where he was working.

    I love any excuse to share my favorite Onion piece of all time. Only wish it were true…

    Good one, Andrew! I don’t want to believe that scumbag was able to survive as a feckless pundit as long as he has. On the Limblah scale he’s barely a passing grade.

    Just for drill, I checked what was being written about the same time as that Onion story was published:
