I like how he stated that when he was on CNBC, the public perception was he was a conservative maniac. Now that he has been on MSNBC, the perceptoin has been the opposite.

The DR Show was the lone once I could stand to watch for political discourse (the other one was Freedom Watch, with Judge Napalitano, which was canceled despite great ratings that were increasing).

Here are som highlights from a great show.....

He had a lot of good segments. One that stands out is the one with Harriet Washington re: her book "Deadly Monopolies" about how big pharma makes it's profits. Worth watching:

Why the fuck are you talking about GE mouthpiece Dylan Ratigan when you should be busting your ass to save Wikileaks founder and OWS progenitor Julian Assange? Are you and fake-radical Ratigan on the same payroll?

I'm not on anyone's payroll. Whose payroll are you on, huh? Salon.com?

Dylan Ratigan (rightfully) loses it on air

If I didn't know any better, I'd think Zendog was back.

That would be good. Zendog always had much to contribute.

He had a good show.

Did he quit or was he fired? I expect he quit, because his show's ratings were climbing but idunno. What I liked about his show was that he wasn't trying to "sell" you on a R or D platform; but instead he spoke to the issues.

In a letter to fans on his website, Ratigan explains that he is off to “experiment” in the market to “seize new tools and take cultural risks to resolve our challenges.”

Sounds like he quit.

Thanks, I thought that was the case.

Ratigan "This aint capitalism"....and he is correct.

When TRILLIONS are controlled at the top, tens of trillions, in a global market, the rest of us are merely peons for the Kleptocracy
