Lou Dobbs appeared on Bill O’Reilly’s popular show on the Fox News Network on Monday, and told why he thought he fell out of favor at CNN, where he quit last week.
According to the New York Post, O’Reilly was told by Dobbs that the only difference between the kind of journalism he was practicing on CNN over the past few years was the election of Barack Obama.
Dobbs went on to say about Obama being elected president, "I don’t know whether that was the distinction that triggered any sort of response or a difference in perspective on the part of CNN’s management, but it is the only difference between the way I was conducting myself under this administration and the previous administration."
Previously, the Post had reported that in leaving CNN Dobbs gave up about $9 million on his contract. The Post then ran a story on Monday that CNN was so eager to have Dobbs leave that they gave him a severance package worth $8 million.
