He got another one. Lou Dobbs, the Howard Beale of CNN, that is. Former Colorado Gov. Roy Romer, a former Democratic Party chairman, tells us that he was watching Dobbs recently and turned mad as hell at the anchor's opinions. "I'm a news hound and I [sat] in front of the television," he says. He turned to Dobbs, the popular though controversial host of Lou Dobbs Tonight. "I was after news," says Romer, but "the people who were supposedly delivering the news to me have deliberately assumed points of view and personality types that I think frankly are part of their market. I was so offended I had to just turn the damn TV off." Romer fears cable news is now more entertainment than facts. "The written press has got tremendous responsibility to help this nation," he implores.
