Why Fox News canceled Lou Dobbs

 Alexis Benveniste of CNN Business –

Fox News’ official reason for canceling Lou Dobbs’ show — a post-election programing adjustment — doesn’t quite add up. Dobbs was the highest-rated host on Fox Business. He often doubled his lead-in’s ratings.

Although Fox isn’t saying, the timing of Dobbs’ cancellation Friday appears to be no coincidence: It took place 24 hours after Dobbs and Fox were named in a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit filed by voting technology company Smartmatic.

Fox may see Dobbs as an acceptable sacrificial lamb.
