After Fox News canceled Lou Dobbs‘ Fox Business Network show, the former anchor has become active on Twitter, thanking people for defending him and retweeting some people insulting the network.

Fox News put out the following statement about the cancellation:

“As we said in October, FOX News Media regularly considers programming changes and plans have been in place to launch new formats as appropriate post-election, including on FOX Business – this is part of those planned changes. A new 5 PM program will be announced in the near future.”

The news of the show’s cancellation came one day after Smartmatic filed a lawsuit against Fox and several hosts, including Dobbs. Fox responded to the lawsuit saying, “FOX News Media is committed to providing the full context of every story with in-depth reporting and clear opinion. We are proud of our 2020 election coverage and will vigorously defend against this meritless lawsuit in court.”
