Fox Business abruptly cancels Lou Dobbs’ show

According to the Los Angeles Times on Friday, the Fox Business Network abruptly canceled their most popular show, “Lou Dobbs Tonight” this week. The Times said Dobbs is unlikely to appear on Fox again.

Lou Dobbs’ show aired at 5 pm and 7 pm weeknights, drawing the network’s biggest audience. The move furthers fears that Fox is addicted to self-harm and wishes to alienate itself from its conservative fanbase.

Dobbs, a staunch supporter of President Trump, followed closely and reported on the 2020 election and election fraud allegations.

In the aftermath of the 2020 election, Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo of “Mornings with Maria”, and Judge Jeanine Pirro hosted attorney Sidney Powell and President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Guliani who accused Smartmatic of rigging the 2020 presidential election.

Dobbs’ show was canceled one day after voting systems creator Smartmatic filed a defamation lawsuit against Fox News, Dobbs, Bartiromo, Pirro, Powell, Guliani, and some other parties. Smartmatic argues that the defendants falsely accused Smartmatic of rigging the 2020 election.

Fox denies the cancellation of Dobbs’ show is related to the lawsuit. In a statement, the network claimed: “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.”

For a network promoting business, canceling the most popular show does not seem like a good business decision.

Concerning the Smartmatic lawsuit, Fox News said they are “proud of our 2020 election coverage and will vigorously defend this meritless lawsuit in court.”

I cancelled them a long time ago. Even Hannity became a bore. I got tired of him telling me how there was no way the American people would give Obama a second term. Obviously, like he has finally admitted, HE IS NIEVE. I watch NO mainstream media. And, after Newsmax’s treatment of Mike Lindell they are not on my TV either.

Your very wrong. Trump did indeed win the election. He wasn’t lying when he said, he won. I sensed on November 4 that the numbers were very wrong. Whenever something isn’t right I get edgy and can’t sit still. It turned out that night when I was looking at the election results. It always turns out that I right. The numbers were wrong in Biden’s favor. Those numbers were supposed to be in Trump’s favor. The system was rigged. Just like I knew the Capitol riot on January 6 was going to happen before it actually happened in November. I didn’t know it specifically but I knew something bad will happen and it was big. It turns out I was right about it.

Did Soros buy off Fox?

There’s only one reason for this move. It is 100% to shut up a big CONSERVATIVE VOICE.

In case you are not aware, FOX NEWS has been run by the Murdock boys since Roger Ailles was deposed. The two Murdock boys are not conservatives and their wives are left wingers.

Hope they’re happy now being a distant 3rd in the ratings. That’s a lot of revenue they lost. I learned a long time ago that nothing stays the same forever. FOX NEWS, being the conservative answer to the left wing mob, is a distant memory.

Fire Chris Matthews, Donna Brazile, Neil Cavuto, Juan Williams. Hire Trump for a one hour prime-time program with guests of his choice. Call it ‘the Kingmaker’.

Just how stupid do the powers at FOX think we, the viewers are. Since FOX has become part of the leftist democrat propaganda operation, their quality has gone to deal. They have become just as puss poor at CNN and they are even less dependable for any truth.

I used to catch “The Five” almost every afternoon except when Brazile was on. Although that Marie Harf is no better and Juan Williams stopped being a “journalist” about 20 years ago (if he ever was one). And to think Bill O’Reilly used to have Williams host his show on occasion when he was on holiday. Then FOX jettisoned O’Reilly and Roger Ailles. That’s about the time FOX began their big slide into the abyss. I won’t be surprised when the Murdock family sells FOX NEWS, which is independent of the FOX network of sports and entertainment programming. That’s when FNC jettisons Tucker, Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Jesse Waters, Gutfeld and any other holdovers that know the truth about Biden and the radical left’s agenda for America.

Funny thing is, the left is unforgiving, and even once FOX purges themselves of anyone remotely resembling a conservative nature, the left still won’t watch FNC.

Fox’s Management should be absolutely ashamed of themselves for the betrayal to their Conservative Employees and the Corruption trail that they are now pursuing. Fox News is going right into the sewer along with the other Corrupt Liberal Media Outlets…

You are so right bc God sent Jesus to set us free and whomever the Lord sets free is free indeed. Those who are in charge of our government are the ones that need to be set free. Satan has them bound and only Jesus can set them free. How sad it is to see Congress, Supreme Court, and the Presidency being manipulated by the king of lies.

We are extremely disappointed & upset that the Lou Dobbs show was canceled. He is one of the few honest & brilliant reporters ever. He is a true Patriot & American. We will no longer watch Fox News for being Unamerican & unconstitutional in abusing the first amendment. This is Cancel Culture & Tyranny!!

Time for us conservatives to find lefties small businesses and boy cott them also. After all that is what they are doing to ANYTHING conservative. I started doing this a few years ago when at a flea market a vendor we frequented threw a man wearing a Make A G A hat out of his selling space. He lost ALL of our business and most everyone else’s once word got around. Never seen hem there again. ALL they do is spread hate and division, so it’s time to run them all outta town for their evil deeds.

Guess you liberals have to destroy people that don’t walk your line! That’s ok/Lou Dobbs & whoever you try & trash w/your lies. Evil always loses in the end, good people are not victims they are victors!!! Fox did WRONG when they called the election early & incorrectly! This election was stolen by evil people that have NOTHING to stand on!! NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH WHAT THIS PRESIDENT WENT THROUGH! Like strong moral people that have been abused-they survive & stand to fight the battles that others bring to them!!! GO PRESIDENT TRUMP (our TRUE president!) All of you liberals know this!

It’s sad that Fox has become a sly fox which can not be trusted and now become one of the Fake Media, firing its best people. Newsmaxtv will surely give offers to the best anchors of Fox news, as Fox slips deeper and deeper into an abyss.

This could be a good thing if it gets the election fraud into court it might work out ok. if Fox puts enough money into defending itself they could prove it was in fact stolen from Trump

To: Fox News

When you cancelled Lou Dobbs show i believe it was one of the highest rated news show on T. V..

May i asked who is giving you directions on News Shows?

Its pretty obvious they don’t know or simply don’t care who they are affecting in their Viewership.

I guess Fox’s is setting itself up for failure……… Bye Fox Hello One American News…. Support LOU TODAY…
