This Ad Against Lou Dobbs To Air On CNN Regarding ‘Birthers’

July 31, 2009

This is the content of ad to air on CNN.  Reportedly the ad buy is for a week, and will run during the Lou Dobbs show on CNN.  Dobbs has thought it best to link himself with the fringe ‘birthers’, and now will pay the price.  Wouldn’t Dobbs feel better at FAUX News where he could beat up the Mexicans 24/7 and join the other xenophobes on-air?

Here’s the script of the spot:

TITLE: CNN’s Dobbs Problem –- 30 Sec.

Chyron: CNN Has a Lou Dobbs Problem

Voice Over: CNN’s Lou Dobbs has been promoting the false, right-wing conspiracy that President Obama hasn’t produced a valid U.S. birth certificate.

Clips: A series of short clips of Dobbs saying “birth certificate”

Voice Over: CNN President Jon Klein said Dobbs’ obsession was “legitimate.”

Clips: Another series of short clips of Dobbs saying “birth certificate”

Voice Over: It’s time for “The Most Trusted Name in News” to live up to its slogan. Let CNN know there’s nothing “legitimate” about racially charged paranoia.

Chyron: Take action at mediamatters.org
