As suggested by our frequent reports, sweet Lou Dobbs makes more news than he reports. We have inspiring news about Dobbs from the West/Left Coast! The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports that the mayor of Santa Cruz, California, a beachfront hamlet new Monterey, is asking city residents to turn off "Lou Dobbs Tonight." The boycott, announced Wednesday in a proclamation written by Mayor Ryan Coonerty that declares March a "Lou Dobbs-free month," is retaliation for the CNN anchor's criticism of Rep. Sam Farr, D-Carmel, after the congressman told an Immigration and Customs Enforcement official last week that his constituents view the agency as similar to the Gestapo.
Our response: why not a Lou Dobbs-Free 2008?
