Hispanic group to CNN: rein in Lou Dobbs
One of the countrys leading Hispanic organizations is launching a campaign designed to pressure CNN to rein in host Lou Dobbs.

The organization behind the campaign, Democracia Ahora, is kicking off the effort Friday with the release of a report based on interviews with 100 Hispanic leaders about the impact of Dobbs evening show.

The results of the report are not surprising 90 percent of the interviewees believe Dobbs is helping create a negative image of Hispanics, with his frequent criticisms of illegal immigration.

But Democracia Ahora is hoping the report inspires a grassroots movement aimed at executives at CNNs parent company, Time Warner, to draw attention to what the group calls frequent negative portrayals of Hispanics on the Lou Dobbs show. It is using its release to start a national campaign, Enough is Enough! that will be carried out through a Web site, www.TellCNNEnoughisEnough.com, that goes live Friday.

Were asking CNN, the alleged most trusted name in news, to really hold Lou Dobbs to the journalistic standards he should be held to, said Jorge Mursuli, president of Democracia Ahora, who expressed frustration with Dobbs reports that immigration contributed to thousands of new reported cases of leprosy and of a superhighway from Mexico to Canada.

2. Good, enough is enough with all the bull that's going on
Lou Dobbs with his crusade, the racist attacks on Obama and general demonizing of the left - it's time for the majority to realize its strength and start to push back on all fronts. We ought to be able to expect decent public discussion of issues without these crusading efforts that go on and on day after day, night after night that can only end in violence.
