In Stunning Move, FOX News Cancels The Lou Dobbs Show

FOX News has been struggling in the ratings since the election.

Considering this fact, it’s impossible to understand why they would cancel the Lou Dobbs show on the FOX Business Network. It was one of FBN’s highest rated shows.

This really boggles the mind.

Fox News Media cancels highly rated ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight’

Fox News Media has cancelled Lou Dobbs’ show, benching its business network’s highest-rated host and a vocal supporter of former President Donald Trump as both Dobbs and Fox face a billion-dollar lawsuit over false claims about the integrity of the 2020 election.

The move, which was first reported by the Los Angeles Times and confirmed by a Fox News spokesperson Friday, came one day after Fox and Dobbs were named in the $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit brought by Smartmatic, a voting software company that was the subject of several false claims made on Fox News and Fox Business.

In a statement, a Fox News spokesperson portrayed the move as something that had been planned prior to the lawsuit.

“As we said in October, Fox News Media regularly considers programming changes and plans have been in place to launch new formats as appropriate post-election, including on Fox Business — this is part of those planned changes,” the spokesperson said.

Conservative fans of the show are not happy about the decision.

It’s impossible to understand what FOX News is thinking. It’s just not the same network it used to be.
