This summer, after Lou Dobbs gave voice to paranoid conspiracy theories that President Obama wasn't born in the U.S., you and more than 25,000 other ColorOfChange members called on CNN to fire Dobbs. Since then, concern over Dobbs has only grown, and the BastaDobbs.com campaign ("basta" means enough in Spanish), run by our friends at Presente.org, is stepping up the pressure on CNN.
CNN is airing a one hour special called "Latino in America" on Oct. 21-22. To help promote the series, they're asking people to submit pictures and short videos to their "iReport" website. The folks at BastaDobbs have made it easy to call out CNN--on their own web site--for supporting Dobbs' dangerous rhetoric. With a few minutes and a camera, you can submit your own "iReport." If enough of us act, we can get other news outlets to cover the story, and force CNN to answer publicly for their Dobbs problem.
