CNN: We're Not Involved With Dobbs' Radio Show

LOU DOBBS' recent discussions of President OBAMA's birth certificate controversy on his radio show drew fire for the UNITED STATIONS RADIO NETWORKS host from the LOS ANGELES TIMES' JAMES RAINEY, but DOBBS' other employer, CNN, wants everyone to know that it is not involved with DOBBS' radio show.
After RAINEY ripped DOBBS in WEDNESDAY's TIMES for failing to sufficiently discount callers' assertions that OBAMA was born in KENYA (and therefore would be ineligible to serve as President), a spokesperson for CNN told TV NEWSER that the network is not involved with DOBBS' radio show. "On CNN," said the spokesperson, "LOU is an independent reporter who covers stories that people are talking about, and often showcases issues that aren't being covered by the mainstream media."
