Media Matters Calls Lou Dobbs on his Jingoistic Nonsense

I heard yesterday that when people are wrong they attack the person, when they feel they are right they attack the argument. Hmmm...what does this mean for Lou Dobbs?

From think progress: Dobbs has a history of perpetuating myths on his show, previously linking undocumented immigrants with cases of leprosy, airing a report saying that the “invasion of illegal aliens is threatening the health of many Americans.” When CBS News confronted Dobbs and told him his claim was false, Dobbs simply replied, “If we reported it, its a fact.”

Last night, Dobbs similarly dismissed challenges to his fact-free claims, calling Waldman “an ideologue” and “a left-wing hack.”
