Is it just me or is he outraged over every story that he reports? He must be just outraged that more Americans aren't as outraged over the outrageous stories. Each story is more outrageous than the next.



Corporate Media Liar

2. It's mind boggling... just mind boggling!
Seems to be his favorite phrase... :)

But you're right, he is always outraged. Many of his stories are good ones, some not so much.

3. Yes I believe Lou! He is one of a very few, if any other, hosts on TV
who says what he believes!

4. I think Lou Dobbs is outraged that his ratings are not higher and worried
that his masters may think he has failed.

He was also the only TV news guy (and I use the term news loosely) to try to educate people about the Carlyle Group.

7. I think Lou Dobbs is doing a great job. And I think efforts to tar him
by the pro-illegal, pro-cheap labor, anti-middle class folks is despicable.

9. Lou Dobbs likes outsourcing American jobs. He says he doesn't. But he does

<snip>Dobbs devoted a column in the March issue to touting the prospects of the Minnesota-based Toro Company, which makes outdoor landscaping-maintenance equipment. He told subscribers that Toro was a "long-term wealth-builder," and praised Toro's "formal code of ethics, something I think is sorely needed at more of America's companies," and its "...exemplary corporate governance structure, which aligns the interests of shareholders, employees, and customers." He concluded his interview with Toro CEO Kendrick Melrose by frankly telling him, "I like the way you treat your shareholders, employees, and customers."

One wonders whether Dobbs' admiration extends to Toro's 2002 decision to move 15% of its workforce -- about 800 jobs -- to Juarez, Mexico. Indeed, CEO Kendrick Melrose might be interested to know that Toro appears on Dobbs' own list of companies that are "exporting America."

And Toro is not alone. Of the 14 companies Dobbs has highlighted for investors since starting his newsletter last year, eight appear on his CNN website as companies that outsource jobs.

Greenpoint Financial is another company that's received conflicting treatment from Dobbs. CEO Tom Johnson enjoyed the Dobbs interview treatment in June 2003. Dobbs promised readers, "I think you'll find Tom's comments and the way he runs his business thought-provoking and insightful."

Apparently one of the "thought-provoking and insightful" methods that Dobbs was referring to was not the 2002 decision by Greenpoint to export much of its mortgage and customer-service operations to Bangalore, India, a move that produced significant savings, but that cost 150 U.S. workers their jobs. Greenpoint Mortgage, a subsidiary of Greenpoint Financial, appears on Dobbs' list of outsourcers.
