Why does Dobbs get to call it a "News" show?

The NYT does a rundown on him today.

"While its competitors, the Fox News Channel and to a lesser extent, MSNBC, have consistently built successful programs around aggressively opinionated hosts like Bill O'Reilly and Keith Olbermann, CNN has maintained that its mission remains offering straight news coverage, unseasoned with sharp points of view.

Except for Lou Dobbs. On CNN only Mr. Dobbs's 6 p.m. nightly news program comes accompanied with the disclaimer that it will contain "news, debate and opinion." That is not a new development for Mr. Dobbs. He has had that freedom at CNN for years and his advocacy approach on the immigration debate has been widely discussed in recent months. Rest here
