What did/will Lou Dobbs do?

Maybe he's already done it. I don't know, I was away last night. But he's got to be "a little miffed" at this whole Miller debacle. He sat there night after night on CNN counting her days in jail and being one of the staunchest defenders of her right to protect her sources.

Now I may not agree with Lou Dobbs, and often I don't. I do respect him. His credibly is damaged (like many in the media) and he doesn't strike me as someone who takes to kindly to that. Currently his CNN web page says nothing but has a link to his Oct 7 interview with Miller.

Editor and Publisher put it this way:

NEW YORK CNN's Lou Dobbs was perhaps Judith Miller's biggest TV supporter during her 85 days in jail, and the New York Times reporter recognized this Tuesday, granting him an exclusive interview.
Now they have stories that say :
"I'm not willing to work further on this project with Judy Miller. ... I do not trust her work, her judgment, or her conduct. She is an advocate, and her actions threaten the integrity of the enterprise, and of everyone who works with her."
But didn't red flags begin to go up when Miller got a call in jail from Cheney September 28 and she was released the next day (September 29, 2005)? It did for me.

She seems to have developed selective amnesia since being relased from prison.
