Report: Dobbs, Irked by ‘Birther’ Order, Walked Away From $9 Million

Nov 13, 2009  •  Post A Comment

When Lou Dobbs abruptly ended his employment at CNN during Wednesday’s broadcast of his show, he walked away from a $9 million balance on his contract, which still had a year and a half to go, reports the New York Post.

While Dobbs has not revealed why he bolted, sources told the Post that his issue with the network dates back to July, when CNN President Jonathan Klein sent a memo to Dobbs’ staff to stop reporting "birther" stories about doubts that President Barack Obama was born in the U.S.

  1. He should have been fired for those “birther” stories back then instead of being able to stay on the air, wasting air, and getting paid WAY TOO MUCH all this time.
    When Journalists make this much money, it seems to me they quit being representatives for the people.
