Check out this video of Lou, Amy and Juan going at it. There are times when they layer themselves and nothing is being said, but the stories Lou gives for non-accountability are a lesson in group mindthink as he trivializes the attempts of Amy and Juan to make him accountable in any way.

But like the master charlatan that he is, he evades all attacks by trivializing and denouncing as ridiculous, as his best defense. The old and feeble trying to push their bigoted racist agendas is a very important part of their agenda on holding power as it was- white truly is right in this when it speaks from its salient high horse. The old must be thrown out, they no longer have any rhetoric to include in our troubled world as it is laid out by these and other old fools who would guide us sleepwalking to the end of the world.

At least read the transcript. It shows so much more on the video though, with all the layered banter and although I think Lou is right that they dwell on their targets a little long, him hiding behind that extended the wasted time, so he wasn't held accountable as easily, while sabotaging the show and didn't allow natural discourse to develop while appealing to emotion as a silencing technique. The old hanging onto their beliefs no matter what!

A scary self centered egotist and very dangerous man to be given so much power to influence policies, but won't acknowledge his stance as influential on the general populace when he makes a mistake. Once it's out there, it's fact to many, despite retractions!

He knows where his pocketbook lies.

Thanks cath, I hadn't found much and missed Lou Dobbs show to see if he brought it up or not. The comments section after is insightful as well as each person gives their take on what they saw.

From one such donor-
Quote:
From American Magazine:
“Current and former CNN employees describe Dobbs as a volatile, sometimes ruthless figure. “He rules by fear,” a current CNN employee, who would not be named, said. “He’s definitely a screamer,” said another. “He can be stubborn, vicious, cutting, and his words are very forceful.”

Some employees got it worse than others. “Dobbs had once demanded that a very short producer stand on a chair so he could yell at him, and when the young man refused, Dobbs crouched down to deliver the scolding,” wrote Howard Kurtz of The Washington Post in The Fortune Tellers, his 2001 book about business media. Dobbs’s former employees say that his actions were designed to build loyalty. “He was not indiscriminately mean-spirited, but it was more of a test,” said a former “Moneyline” employee. “Those that failed the test left, and those that passed the test stuck around.”

Sounds like a typical tyrant off camera- a real BillO in disguise- A charlatan and a flim flam man out to sell his snake oil again? :roll: These parasites inhabit the worst slime molds don't they!
