is the CNN fixture, the standard-bearer of outsourcing (also known as trade, as glassman points out), really what he seems to be? or is he unabashedly tw0-faced, that is, rabid protectionist in one janus-face and shareholder advocate in the other janus-face?

Two Faces of Lou Dobbs
by James K. Glassman (March 4, 2004)
|Summary: Evildoers on the Dobbs Rogue Fund happen to the most innovative job-creators in America.|
[www.CapMag.com] I wonder whether the friends of Lou Dobbs on the protectionist Left -- folks like Rich Trumka of the AFL-CIO and Rep. Sherrod Brown of Ohio -- know that, at the same time the CNN anchor is pushing for restrictions on trade practices like outsourcing and demanding that the President's top economic advisor be fired, he's also praising "George Bush [for] ushering in the greatest economic boom since Ronald Reagan in 1982."
Even more surprising, Dobbs is telling investors to buy shares of companies like Boeing and Washington Mutual -- both on his most-wanted list of firms guilty of "exporting America."
