Lou Dobbs is leaving CNN – How big of a Blow to Anti Immigration Media?

So you all heard by now about Lou Dobb’s dramatic departure from CNN. He said on air:

Over the past six months, it’s become increasingly clear that strong winds of change have begun buffeting this country and affecting all of us. And some leaders in media, politics and business have been urging me to go beyond the role here at CNN and to engage in constructive problem-solving, as well as to contribute positively to a better understanding of the great issues of our day. And to continue to do so in the most honest and direct language possible.

Whether he felt that the Immigration reform debate will become a major topic in the next year, and his attempts to stop it will fail, or the rise in the pro immigration movement. Whatever it was, we are happy to see him go. Let the voices for Immigration reform take charge and make 2010 the year such change will happen. Good bye Lou!
