Now a prominent Latino television journalist has come out and slammed Lou Dobbs. That’s Geraldo Rivera.
At an event in New York sponsored by the Spanish-language daily, El Diario La Prensa, Rivera described Dobbs as a “hate monger” and “a man who was an accomplished journalist.”
“(Dobbs) discovered that one of the ways to get people watch was to make of the image of a young Latino trying to get into this country a profoundly negative icon,” Rivera said.
“Lou Dobbs is almost single-handedly responsible for creating, for being the architect of the young Latino as scapegoat for everything that ails this country,” Rivera added.
You can see his full comments in a video if you continue reading.
Rivera also said he called his boss who told him that Dobbs is not moving to Fox News. Too bad because that really is where he belongs alongside Bill O’Reilly.
don’t quite understand why Rivera is on FOX since he has a more liberal
viewpoint than just about everybody on that network. But Rivera has
been known for his brand of sensationalistic journalism.
hasn’t been one of my journalistic heroes but I give him credit for
calling out Dobbs as you can see in the following video, where also
calls Barack Obama our first Latino president.
