Is Lou Dobbs's Club Getting Swamped by Unwelcome Visitors?

Lou Dobbs's new subscription-only premium-content service is only a few days old. But it's already running into problems...eerily familiar problems, you might say.

The former CNN host this week launched Independent America, a membership service offered through his Web site, loudobbs.com. For $5.95 a month, or $49.95 a year, fans of Dobbs's nonpartisan-but-conservative political sentiments can get access to daily video Webcasts, weekly Web chats, a commercial-free version of his podcast, discussion boards, and more.
