CNN host Lou Dobbs has done more than anyone in the media to spread misinformation and hatred about Latinos. Yet CNN continues to broadcast his show, even as they are courting Latino viewers. It's time for that to end.

Here is the statement we’ll send on your behalf to Jon Klein, President of CNN. You can also add a personal comment in the box provided.
Dear Mr. Klein,
It's time for CNN to stop promoting Lou Dobbs’ brand of “news.” Dobbs consistently spreads myths and misinformation about immigrants and Latinos, and his rhetoric has been linked to the rise of bigotry and hate crimes in our communities. Standing behind Dobbs sends a message that CNN is more interested in perpetuating prejudice than being a credible source of news for Latinos.
As President of CNN, it is imperative that you act quickly and decisively to drop Dobbs from your network, and send the message that CNN does not tolerate hate speech. There should be no place for the likes of Dobbs on the “most trusted name in news.”
