An Indignity

Last year I reviewed Lou Dobbs’s first "book."  (You can find my review here — a review that explains why I put the word "book" in quotation marks when referring to Dobbs’s yelp.)  I had occasion today to thumb through this "book" again.  I ran across this ominous observation on page 17:

The final indignity is that these imports, both legal and illegal, are usually arriving on foreign-owned ships.

Lou Dobbs’s image and voice arrive every evening into American homes on foreign-produced televisions.  An indignity?

Update: My better half pointed out to me that Lou Dobbs is employed by CNN — an American network carried worldwide.  I wonder if Mr. Dobbs and his employers worry about all those many countries throughout the world "outsourcing" their news coverage to an American firm.
