GET WOKE GO BROKE: Fox News Axes Pro-Trump Lou Dobbs’ Show

Fact checked
'Woke' Fox axes Lou Dobbs' show

Fox News has cancelled the hugely popular pro-Trump Lou Dobbs Tonight show, according to a Friday evening report.

Per the Los Angeles Times:

Dobbs’ program, which airs twice nightly at 5 and 7 p.m. Eastern on the Fox Business Network, will have its final airing Friday, according to a Fox News representative who confirmed the cancellation. Starting next week, the program will be called “Fox Business Tonight,” with rotating substitute hosts Jackie DeAngelis and David Asman, who filled in for Dobbs on Friday.


[P]eople familiar with discussions say the decision to end Dobbs’ program was under consideration before the legal issues with Smartmatic arose. (Fox News said it stands by its 2020 election coverage and will “defend this meritless lawsuit in court.”)

“As we said in October, Fox News Media regularly considers programming changes and plans have been in place to launch new formats as appropriate post-election, including on Fox Business,” A Fox News representative said in a statement.

“This is part of those planned changes. A new 5 p.m. program will be announced in the near future.” reports: Former President Donald Trump issued a statement on the cancelation of Dobbs’ show, saying: “Lou Dobbs is and was great. Nobody loves America more than Lou.”

“He had a large and loyal following that will be watching closely for his next move, and that following includes me,” the former president added. 

The sudden development comes after voting systems company Smartmatic filed a $2.7 billion defamation suit against Fox News and hosts Dobbs, Jeanine Pirro, and Maria Bartiromo. Smartmatic alleges that the network broadcasted falsehoods about the company that caused both financial and reputational damage. Dominion Voting Systems, another voting software system, recently sued Rudy Guiliani and Sidney Powell for $1.3 billion over their voter fraud claims.

Fox News maintains that the voting systems company’s claims against it are meritless.

Smartmatic is represented by J. Erik Connolly, who previously won what’s believed to be the largest settlement in American media defamation, at least $177 million, for a report on ABC News describing a company’s beef product as “pink slime.”

“Very rarely do you see a news organization go day after day after day against the same targets,” Connolly said in an interview. “We couldn’t possibly have rigged this election because we just weren’t even in the contested states to do the rigging.”

Fox, after receiving a demand for retraction from Smartmatic’s lawyers in December, aired what it called a “fact-checking segment” with an election technology expert. In the segment, the expert said there was no evidence of tampering — something the defendants knew from the start and reported elsewhere on the network, the complaint alleges.


  1. Just like I told the wife, after Disney bought FoxNews, soon they will be neck deep in the msm propaganda machine!

  2. They paint and taint Dobbs as ‘pro Trump’ and dismiss him and muzzle him with his contracts. And even this CONservative blog bleats and repeats that Dobbs is Pro Trump.. that’s the least part of his work and legacy advocating for Constitutional America.. That’s not mentioned.

  3. More proof it seems that Fox news is in the toilet, that the takeover of the MSM by the globalist cabal and leftist ideologues is complete.

  4. Well, old people kinda caused the lockdowns and so, i can see that Lou is old so it only makes sense that we can only end the lockdowns by not letting old people talk. It’s not like they have been alive longer than most and have learned a few things. In fact, they’ve learned the wrong things, like not to trust the government.

  5. The fox so called pro Trump shows were always led by weak presenters lacking conviction and basically wishy washy clap trap anyway .And many were actually subvervise by design too .Quite transparently Like Mursoch Duplicitous and deceiving.
