Latino in America, the CNN two-part special that claims to provide insights into what it`s like to be Hispanic in America, flopped in the ratings. The documentary failed despite heavy promotion in the days leading up to its airing.
Latino in America drew 1 million and 848,000 watchers, respectively.
These disappointing numbers makes it hard for the anti-Lou Dobbs faction to make a case for firing him since his nightly program is consistently one of CNN`s best performers. [CNN`s special on Latinos Stirs Protest Against Anchor, by Brian Stelter, New York Times, October 22, 2009]
Bell retired from a major network five years ago to start a media consulting company.
