Lou Dobbs: An embarrassment for CNN

He’s become a publicity nightmare for CNN, embarrassed his boss and hosted a show that seemed to contradict the network’s "no bias" brand. And on top of all that, his ratings are slipping.

How does Lou Dobbs keep his job?

It’s not a simple answer. CNN insists it is standing behind Dobbs, despite calls for his head from critics of his reporting on "birthers" — those who believe President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States despite convincing evidence to the contrary.

Shot down over west-central Iraq on a combat mission on Jan. 17, 1991, Speicher was declared killed by the Pentagon hours later. Defense Secretary Dick Cheney went on television and announced the U.S. had suffered its first casualty of the war.

Obama officials admit tax hike is likely

Two of President Barack Obama’s economic heavyweights said middle-class taxes might have to go up to pare budget deficits or to pay for the proposed overhaul of the nation’s health care system.

The tough talk from Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and National Economic Council Director Lawrence Summers on Sunday capped a week that brought rare good news for the economy: The worst recession in the United States since World War II could be on the verge of ending. Even so, officials appeared willing to extend unemployment benefits.
