Hours after news broke that Fox News cancelled Lou Dobbs’ Fox Business Network show, Dobbs was active on Twitter thanking people defending him, and retweeting some people taking shots at the network. The news of Lou Dobbs Tonight being cancelled came just one day after Smartmatic filed a lawsuit against Fox and several hosts, including Dobbs.
Fox has issued a statement:
“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 – this is part of those planned changes. A new 5PM program will be announced in the near future.”
Below are just some of his retweets.

Fox News is desperate to be accepted by people who will not accept them. Cancelling @LouDobbs is not going to satisfy the blood lust of the rage mob.

We love @LouDobbs for always fighting for the American people. It’s crushing to see his show cancelled.
Lou never hesitates to speak against the establishment & millions of us will follow him wherever he goes.

Lou Dobbs. The very best. Smartest voice on television. Had the highest rated show, by far, on his network. Had the highest rated show on the network he was on before FOX too, and the network before that. FOX in a tailspin. @LouDobbs #loudobbs pic.twitter.com/1YA657OxY1

God bless @LouDobbs – a great American and a great broadcaster. He was one of the true conservatives in “conservative” broadcasting.

.@LouDobbs is a truly great American, a consummate journalist, a committed Christian, and a treasured friend. Next to Sunday mornings, visiting with Lou Friday nights has been the highlight of my week for 5 years. Thanks Lou!

Statement from President Trump on @LouDobbs show being canceled…
“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.”
