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.
