Fox News canceled “Lou Dobbs Tonight” according to the Los Angeles Times.
Lou Dobbs is a staunch Trump supporter and isn’t afraid to report on the massive Democrat voter fraud in the 2020 election.
Smartmatic this week filed a $2.7 billion defamation suit against Fox News, Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro.
The Los Angeles Times reported:
Fox News has canceled “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” the program hosted by television’s staunchest supporter of Donald Trump and of his assertions of voter fraud in the 2020 election, The Times has learned.
Dobbs’ program, which airs twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. Eastern on the Fox Business Network, will have its final airing Friday, according to a Fox News representative who confirmed the cancellation. Starting next week, the program will be called “Fox Business Tonight,” with rotating substitute hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman, who filled in for Dobbs on Friday.
Dobbs, 75, remains under contract at Fox News but he will in all likelihood not appear on the company’s networks again. In addition to his Fox Business Network program, he occasionally turned up on the Fox News Channel as a commentator.
Update: President Trump released a statement on Lou Dobbs:
