Fox News Cancels Lou Dobbs – DC Watchdog

Fox News Cancels Lou Dobbs

In a move that has shocked his viewers and the world of television news, Lou Dobbs has been permanently taken off the air by Fox News. The firing came just one day after voting software company Smartmatic filed a $2.7-billion defamation suit against Fox News and three of its hosts – Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and Jeanine Pirro.

**********

As reported by Breitbart, “Fox News has canceled Lou Dobbs Tonight and the pro-Trump host is not expected to return to the television news network’s airwaves, according to a Friday evening report.

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Dobbs’ program, which airs twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. Eastern on the Fox Business Network, will have its final airing Friday, according to a Fox News representative who confirmed the cancellation. Starting next week, the program will be called “Fox Business Tonight,” with rotating substitute hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman, who filled in for Dobbs on Friday…

[P]eople familiar with discussions say the decision to end Dobbs’ program was under consideration before the legal issues with Smartmatic arose. (Fox News said it stands by its 2020 election coverage and will “defend this meritless lawsuit in court.”)…

Former President Donald Trump issued a statement on the cancelation of Dobbs’ show, saying: ‘Lou Dobbs is and was greatNobody loves America more than Lou.’ [emphasis added]

“‘He had a large and loyal following that will be watching closely for his next move, and that following includes me,” the former president added.” [emphasis added]

    Good-by Fox! Hello Newsmax! You’ve pushed yourself south with your progressiveness.

  2. Brenda Pritchard says:

    Fox has decided that this is the hill they choose to be decimated on. So be it. You chose your board members….we choose to never watch your network again. You destroyed yourself. America will be strong and prevail with our freedom in tact.

  3. Gerry Jones says:

    Fox news is now fox disinformation

  4. Don Arterburn says:

    Since the radical leftist have won over FOX as demonstrated by the cancellation of a frank,honest and open constitutional minded news caster, Lou Dobbs, it’s obvious FOX has succumb to the radical left.
    Lou is gone and so am I as I still believe in free speech and fully stand and support for the constitution of the US. It’s apparent, FOX no longer does.

  5. Sharon Slevin says:

    Fox’s ratings keep dropping and this is one reason why. Lou Dobbs is on Newsmax and that’s what I watch. Fox’s producer is now run by a Democrate so what do you expect.

    Fox News USED TO BE YHE #1 NEWS SHOW ON TV!!!!!!! EVERYONE I KNOW WATCHED IT…….BUT I GUESS THAT Fox News LET THE SOCIALIST GET TO THEM!!!!!!!! SO NOW THEY CAN BE CONSIDERED A NO NEWS SHOW??????? I MY SELF DO NOT WATCH IT ANYMORE…. WHEN THEY STARTED PUTING CERTAIN PEOPLE (DEM…FRAUD PARTY) ON THE SHOWS IT WAS DOWNHILL FOR ME!!!!!! THE MAIN REASON FOR THAT WAS BECAUSE THEY ALWAYS LET THE DEMS>>>>(FRAUD PARTY) SAY WHAT EVER THEY WANTED…..EVEN WHEN THE FACTS WERE FALSE???????? THE FRAUD PARTY DOES NOT CHECK THEIR FACTS!!!!! ONLY WHEN IT IS CONVENIENT?????? JUAN WILLIAMS IS THE BIGGEST FRAUD………BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING HE HAS TO SAY IS AN ACTUAL FACT?????????? THERE ARE MANY MORE THAT DO THE SAME!!!!!!!!!! like donna gazelle……….

    I used to like fox news it was the only news network allowed in my home because they used to be the standout not bashing my president, but never again thier no better than cnn and MSNBC any more they’ve pimped themselves out to the communist scum in the country so I hope theyapiral downward out of control until there is no way for them to return, but I hope if there ever is a chance they return they have learned to be patriotic, not Marxists sellouts like the other Media outlets

  8. Donna Hansen says:

    Fox won’t be on much longer… as conservatives are being shut down there. Time to move on to freedom. Sorry to see this…FOX was a big part of our lives for so long…I’ll miss it.

  9. Holly Rose says:

    All of those journalist and commentators that support trump deserve what the get, getting fired. Smartmatic has every right to prosecute any for defaming and denigrating their good name. There was no election fraud even AG Bill Barr said so. Why are trump supporters kicking a dead horse? It is a done deal Biden won and that is all there is to that! Thank goodness Biden is a president now. Economy is beginning to pick up. Shops and restaurants are opening up which trump couldn’t do. trump destroyed our economy. Biden is picking up where Obama left thank goodness. Biden will put America back on its feet.

    • Roy Westberg says:

      Holly Biden is a senile old man . He cant even talk without someone telling him what to say. You dems are so hypocritical. You say trump could not open up. Only because of fauci and all the media screaming about the virus. What about before the china virus was released. The economy was humming jobs were plentiful Trumps economy was strong . Demonrats loved the virus on trumps watch because he had to shut everything down while democrats were putting sick people in nursing homes Trump got two drug companys to work for the cure and Biden cant even get it delivered.

  10. Imre says:

    Looks like the democraps bought out Fox News, just like they own most of mainstream media & social media goons. Much closer to the censorship that the Chinese & North Korean news gives their people. Won’t be long before the commercials will be in Chinese. Maybe Jack Dorsey bought Fox and these firings are part of the “new” Fox that democraps control. This way, the Billionaire CEO’s own ALL of our news and we will NEVER hear the truth. They won’t let the congress put the kibosh on their monopoly, so now they are in total control of the American public. Time for civil war #2.

    I had to #WalkAway from #FauxNews AND Canceled my cable completely after the incident a year ago when it
    appeared #FauxNews FIRED Judge Jeanine!!!

    a few #FauxNews shows I would EVEN CONSIDER watching anyway. This coming from someone who watched
    ONLY NEWS… AND… ONLY FOX, now (Faux). Judge Jeanine, Lou Dobbs, Sean, Tucker, & Maria Bartiromo were
    the only ones I’d watched. I RETURNED MY #ConCast CABLE BOXES.

  13. Patricia Quintana says:

    Fox has gone completely insane. You better come to your senses soon or you won’t have anyone watching your network. Like the saying goes “What goes around comes around: So you’ll get yours.

  14. Becky says:

    How disgraceful of Fox for firing Lou you should not judge a person for how they think or what they believe in !! 75 million plus people know the election was rigged and stolen so far nobody has hollered about what they plan to do about it which is nothing be rest assured of that !!! Now here Fox is doing the same thing to American Viewers punishment for speaking the truth we don’t need your news channel and will not bow down to your way of thinking and behavior what happens to your channel will be well deserved and I think it will be down !!! Shame on you Fox

  15. Jaybo says:

    I hope GREG GUTFELD and others leave fox! GREG liked Lou Dobbs! We will see! P.S. I QUIT FOX WHEN THEY CUT NEWT OFF FOR SPEAKING ABOUT SOROS!

  16. bruce says:

    FOX will continue to lose Market Share as they continue down the road to be just another propaganda source for liberals and haters of America. Lou Dobbs was courageous and put info out there. There is no way Smartmatic (the core software of Dominion) actually has a case. They have a history however convoluted and its documented. Its fact. The liberal media gets away with lying all the time. No one takes them to court. Freedom of the press cuts both ways.

    • Olive says:

      I completely agree —— It won’t be until Fox News begins to lose its viewers and loses money that it will stop this nonsense of canceling a show because it gives some views of the Republican ideas and of the people who supported and STILL support Donald Trump. Why do they keep tryhing to shove a rotten apple (Biden) down our throats and keep throwintg away all the good apples, like Lou Dobbs and so many others???? Don’t they are at all what they are doing to the people of this country? In 2 weeks Biden has done so much harm to the American people!!!!! At least be hones with yourselves!!!

      • Carol Cliff says:

        What is it Hannity says ” FAIR TRUTH AND UNAFRAID..FOX IS TAKING THEM OUT ONE BY ONE CAUSE THE BAD GUYS ARE GETTING TO THEM.THEYRE AFTER TUCKER..BEWARE FOX..WE WANT THE TRUTH.IF WE DONT GET IT FROM YOU WE’LL TAKE YOU OUT AND GO TO PODCAST. IWE CAN SHUT YOU DOWN.SO BEG THEM TO COME BACK.

  17. ,lisa says:

    This BS must be stopped. Our voices will not remain silent! The more these socialist nuts keep pushing to silence,destroy our lives, businesses, and love for our country, the STRONGER WE BECOME! TRUMP WAS CORRECT! HE IS OUR LEGAL PRESIDENT

    • Jen says:

      What you say is sadly true. To everyone if you haven’t watched Absolute Proof (which has already been removed by utube) go to michaellindell.com and watch it there (Rumble) and pass it on. The show is very long, a lot of the info/proof is a repeat from what all of us patriots already knew, but there’s some undeniable and amazing new info/facts in there too. The proof is scary and the intentional lack of action from ALL branches of government is horrific. Saving America will require all hands on deck. Please understand this is not a democrat/republican thing this is about America loosing her freedom.

    Fox is screwing themselves and they deserve it ~ if you cannot fight the big boys then get out of the game ~ no one wants a switch hitter stabbing the readers in the back ~ WE made you WE can break you and I hope it happens, you deserve it for leaving your devoted public for a POS party of Dembocraps and big Tech ~ One way is not the only way so take your
    show and we will watch you fall big time ~ I for one will be there ~

    • Bernard Gallert says:

      Fox used to be Free speach, what’s Up, can’t you Boys handle The Comunist regime of CHINA JOE? I for one will not be watching Fox anymore and I’m sure I’m not the only one, I Loved watching Lou, he Only TOLD the truth, I guess you GUYS don’t want to report the truth no more,fairwell!

  19. robert chiarello says:

    Very foolish move by Fox. It is the conservative support which has made Fox great, “Do NOT bite the hand that feeds you”! This is an old saying most patriotic Americans can identify with, before there were all these free hand-outs and giveaways for doing absolutely nothing but just showing up. Election was rigged, and Fox may have an excellent legal case against Dominion-Smartmatic and their China owners. Questionable behavior was by Martha McCallum and Brett Beyer and the guy who is supposed to be an expert who called Arizona too early. Also, Neil Cavuto who has always n\been a Rino. These are the people who caused viewers to loose confidence in Fox over a period of many months leading up to the election. Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, Gutfeld, and Laura Ingram are the only ones left worth watching now. Nothing else is worth the time. All bent and slanted and skeptical. Drinking too much Kool Aid prepared by Paul Ryan.

  20. Jaybo says:

    Sorry Lou bot the traitors did.you a favor
    We all know your a patriot and FUCKS(fox) only want traitors,liars,backstabbing commies to work for them!
    Don’t watch ANY of the commie networks and maybe their ratings will take a nose dive to the end#

  21. Faux News is dead! Maybe they can put Donna Brazilnut in his place? That will really raise their ratings.
