Fox News Terminates ‘Lou Dobbs Tonight’ After Being Sued For $2.7 Billion: Report

Fox News host Lou Dobbs is suddenly out of a job after the conservative network was sued for $2.7 billion over Dobb’s repeated peddling of conspiracy theories about the 2020 election results.

Dobbs, a staunch supporter of Donald Trump, spent months using his show “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” to spread lies about voter fraud in the 2020 election. Now his show has been canceled by Fox News, the Los Angeles Times reports, citing a Fox News representative “who confirmed the cancellation.”

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 the report.

As noted by The LA Times, “Dobbs, 75, remains under contract at Fox News but he will in all likelihood not appear on the company’s networks again. In addition to his Fox Business Network program, he occasionally turned up on the Fox News Channel as a commentator.”

“The cancellation comes a day after voting software company Smartmatic filed a $2.7 billion defamation suit against Fox News and three of its hosts — Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo and Jeanine Pirro. The company claims the hosts perpetuated lies and disinformation about Smartmatic’s role in the election, damaging its business and reputation.”
