Michael Dobbs of Fact Checker lists this doozy -- which was the subject of a number of stories on this blog -- among the "Best of the Rest" "Fibs of 2007":

"If we reported it, it's a fact."

--  Lou Dobbs of CNN, interviewed by CBS's 60 Minutes, May 6, standing by a false claim that there had been 7,000 new cases of leprosy in the United States between 2002 and 2004, as a result of illegal immigration. His source: "medical expert" Madeleine Cosman.

It's really pathetic that after all your vague claims to Dobbs having anti-immigrant tendencies, this is all that you can come up with. Lou is on TV 5-days of the week, 365 days of the year speaking on cons of illegal immigration, yet all you have is a questionable attibution on leprosy. If that's all there you have on him, I suggest that his record on veracity is better than yours.
