Dylan Ratigan signs off on MSNBC

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.

    Good old ‘Ratti-gel’. Good old ‘buttinski’….talk over, talk over…what is to like about him? Honestly! A paid shill, nothing more, nothing less.

    One thing that would enable a faster track to more solar energy use in the USA is a law allowing people to install solar devices on their property with little or no interference from Homeowner Associations, etc. Some solar equipment may not be considered to be beautiful to architects, etc. Who cares? Not me. You should be free to install solar devices on your property if you want. BUT in the USA we are becoming less free each day as seen yesterday in the supreme court Obamacare ruling.

    Other things that would foster more solar energy use are lower solar equipment costs, higher costs for traditional energy sources, and a “desire” to use renewable energy. Unfortunately, about 1/2 of Americans are not too energy conscious and seem to have no problem whatsoever paying very high costs for extremely inefficient homes and automobiles. I do not understand their thinking but it is good to be free to make bad decisions.
