CNN May Restore Journalistic Integrity with Departure of TV Anchor Lou Dobbs, According to Latino Policy Coalition

SACRAMENTO, Calif., Nov. 12 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ -- The Latino Policy Coalition (LPC) congratulates Presente.org along with the more than 40 local and regional civil rights organizations that have succeeded in their efforts to draw national attention to CNN Anchor Lou Dobbs' anti-immigrant news program, and thus ultimately end his slanted commentary show on CNN.

"In accepting Lou Dobbs' resignation, CNN may finally restore its journalistic integrity," said LPC Chair Jim Gonzalez.

Lou Dobbs' xenophobic statements fuel hate crimes incidents in Latino communities. Dobbs wrongly portrayed immigrants as criminals, job stealers, and disease carriers who unduly burden America's social welfare system.

"The ouster of Lou Dobbs from CNN reaffirms that what we witnessed with Justice Sonia Sotomayor's successful confirmation. Latinos in the U.S. are connecting with their political power and will not support racial profiling or discrimination, but instead, are invested in just treatment for all and sound immigration reform," Gonzalez concluded.
