Not really celebrated by the non-English speaking people. I dont even think many know Dobbs or even watch him. It was celebrated as a great victory but more like the college educated, middle class people of the US who invested time, money and energy into it. It involved a group of people of all cultures and ethnicities, a group of organizations who trully believe this person was giving false information and contributing to a spread of hate.

Here is their written victory:

NMHC
Quote:
The National Hispanic Media Coalition (NHMC) and the Latino community congratulate CNN management for directing Lou Dobbs to either return to being a credible journalist or find another home.
Lou Dobbs’ editorializing and hate speech-aimed directly at the Latino community-had become an embarrassment to CNN and placed the network’s integrity in great question.
NDN
Quote:
NDN, a leading think tank and advocacy organization, joined with Media Matters to create the DropDobbs.com coalition several months ago to hold CNN anchor Lou Dobbs accountable for the rampant intolerance promoted through his nightly news show. The coalition was later joined by several prominent organizations to promote this effort.
GALEO
Quote:
“We are glad that Lou Dobbs will no longer spread his hatred and fear against Latinos on CNN. We are proud to have worked for this to happen. ”

You could be right but dont you think that the reason why CNN was declining in ratings could have been because of Lou Dobbs?

In October of 09 Lou Dobbs ranked the lowest.

Quote:
7PM, A25-54
Fox Report with Shepard Smith: 463,000
Hardball: 182,000
Issues with Jane Velez-Mitchell: 167,000
Lou Dobbs Tonight: 163,000
CNN Falls To Last Place In Primetime Demo

Either case, I dont think we have seen the last of Dobbs. I'm sure he will come back with more energy and ready to keep the public misinformed.

For someone who complains the pro-illegal advocates came down hard on him...when all they were doing at first was trying to clear up the misinformation given by L.D. I think L.D. was pretty harsh as well.

Quote:
1) In 2005, Dobbs claimed that Hispanic immigration was responsible for the spread of more than 7,000 cases of leprosy in America. When experts pointed out 7,000 was the total registered cases of leprosy over the previous three decades Dobbs labeled his critics “commies”, “fascists”, and a “wackjob.”
He was given a taste of his own medicine.

Quote:
2) Dobbs repeatedly argued that NAFTA resulted in the loss of American jobs. This isn’t a new charge, in fact it was a pillar of Ross Perot’s 1992 presidential bid (see “Giant sucking sound”). Now the data: in the decade after passage of the NAFTA the unemployment rate averaged about 5%..
3) Car plants in Mexico killed Detroit. Actually, total employment in automobile manufacturing has remained surprisingly high in the US over the past two decades.
Mexico

Not to mention him almost calling Condeleeza Rice a "cotton picker".


YouTube - Lou Dobbs: Cotton... What?

But Lou Dobbs is still very much defended by anti-illegal advocates as a non-racist.

What a sad day in America when the media is dictated by not only non-citizens but advocates for CRIMINALS that are in this country Illegally..

CNN states that they are trying to be a straight-ahead news organization but if that were the case, they would get rid of Rick Sanchez who has spent the past few days advocating for the "Dream Act"..

The media was not dictated by non-citizens. Look at the website I provided. Those are all American organizations and not all are of one particular ethnicity. AA, Asians, Africans, Caucasians (Americans) were also involved in this cause. The reason Lou Dobbs was singled out was for his use of hate fear mongering language toward Latinos, mostly.

His "Fear mongering" language amounted to wanting the country's border security laws to be upheld.. Mr. Dobbs advocated for LEGAL immigration and was anti-Illegal alien..

That said, the groups represented on the website are mainly left-wing organizations with a vested interest in Illegal Immigration and many of them ethnocentric that use racially identifying terms in their name... Illegal Aliens and their lobbyists and supporters launched a smear campaign against Mr. Dobbs in an attempt to silence him.. It all amounts to the defense of people that entered the U.S. Illegally and in many cases commit criminal acts.

You must remember that the anti-Hispanic/Latino crowd don't consider Hispanic/Latino Americans as U.S citizens.
