I first learned of Dylan when we met on the Fast Money set in 2008 before he left for MSNBC.
I have appreciated his work and his rare, thoughtful discussion on the controversial and complex issues we are facing today. Over the past 3 years, Dylan has been hosting the right conversations when so few are. Eyeballs have been falling across the board in business television (because the content is too frequently biased, status quo and worthless in my view). Increasingly people are turning off and selecting their own content of interest via the internet.
The Dylan Ratigan Show was the highest-rated, non-prime time show on the network, aimed at critiquing what Ratigan sees as an unholy alliance between big business and government. The Dylan Ratigan Show gained in total viewership 18%, while CNN and Fox fell 15% and 7% respectively in total audience. He is now signing off to regroup and evolve to a new platform to in his words “teach, model and show how to get more abundant supplies of food, energy, learning and health along with cultures that cultivate access to opportunity to maximize potential for all groups and individuals.” Bravo to that. Here is his new website. We can look forward to Dylan’s next reincarnation.
Domestic, efficient and alternative energy policies are a cornerstone of the renaissance America now needs. Here is a direct link.
