Reading the Wall Street Journal‘s article on the media’s role in fanning the ports fire and ran across this understated paragraph:
Then Mr. Dobbs got on the story. The CNN commentator, who has redefined his career by editorializing against outsourcing, illegal immigration and big business, aired his initial report in which he expressed incredulity that the deal was being allowed to go forward. That report was followed by 15 others in the following 17 of his shows.
I’ve caught Lou Dobbs’ hysterical shtick a few times since he went off the deep end, and I’m usually embarrassed for him.
Maybe he should lose all pretense of seriousness and fully turn into Peter Finch’s character, Howard Beale, in the 1976 film Network.
