Dylan Ratigan’s MSNBC move a big flop…

IMO anyone who moves TO msnbc is as big a tool as the rest of that diseased frat boy ‘network’. Shoulda stuck with Fast Money, where actual thinking viewers tuned in to see your rants Dylan. Now you are just one of many ranting, red faced creeps on a channel full of biased toolz…..

Our previous posts on Dylan and the move to MSNBC here

NYPost:

The new year is starting off badly for Dylan Ratigan, whose face time on MSNBC has been cut in half. The cantankerous pundit has gone from having the 9-11 a.m. slot to just one hour at 4 p.m., when ratings are lower.

“He’s pissed but has no other options,” said a source. “He came in and thought he would take over the network. He treated everyone in the office like his assistants.” But an MSNBC spokesman characterized Ratigan’s move as a promotion: “The show is being moved to 4 p.m. because we anticipate it will be a strong lead-in to ‘Hardball.’ “

Ahh the good ole’ days, back when Free Market Capitalism was a blessing not an epithet on The Hill, when Macke and Bolling were together and before Ratigan went all ‘Dark Side’ and fled to MessNBC

Gawker – The Rant that Explains Why Dylan Ratigan Left CNBC, plus a poll!

Finally, courtesy of Gawker, the audio :0)

Vodpod videos no longer available.

…The tape dates to last summer, when Susan Krakower, a CNBC executive and co-creator with Ratigan of Fast Money, dared to speak into his earpiece during a commercial break in the newscast. Ratigan didn’t like that…The New York Post reported on the exchange back in March, and indicated that Ratigan’s issues with Krakower were partially responsible for his decision to jump to MSNBC—after promising himself to ABC News as a negotiating tactic to get more money—in May.

Sounds like a fun guy to work with….

And a poll! As soon as I figure out how to put it in here, lol…Dylan’s new show started on MSNBC this week, it is up against The Call one of the only 2 CNBC shows I still watch (the other being kudlow)..

Here’s your question, has anyone seen it? No clips have appeared on Youtube yet…..

And just for fun, Dennis Kneale fighting with bloggers yesterday, lol, again Gawker has it:

Did Dylan Ratigan ‘screw over’ ABC? Is Jeff Macke leaving Fast Money next? Is MSNBC ready for Dylan?

Happier Days: September 18, 2006:

GAWKER says yes Dylan screwed ABC…

…Since loudly leaving CNBC in late March, Ratigan had been rumored to be going to ABC, perhaps to Good Morning America.

“In ABC’s mind, they had—and have—a deal with Ratigan,” says a source with knowledge of the negotiations. “This wasn’t a handshake deal. This was a deal deal. ABC got fucked, royally.”

…News of Ratigan’s departure from CNBC were accompanied by a leak to Page Six of a tape of him screaming at his producers: “I’m not going to host a fucking TV show that consists of reading fucking e-mails to fucking traders.”

More on that Page Six Audio:

…Page Six heard a tape of highly volatile Ratigan, who also co-anchors “The Call” and “Closing Bell,” ranting to a producer at a commercial break last summer: “Don’t ask me to talk about every [bleep]ing e-mail that comes up on the screen. I’m not going to host a [bleep]ing TV show that consists of reading [bleep]ing e-mails to [bleep]ing traders.” He then accuses Krakower of never addressing his concerns in private. “You know what, Susan, I’m in the middle of hosting a show right now, so now is an unwelcome time to hear your voice . . . If you want to pull me off the show, please do,” he roars. “[You are] rude and disrespectful. . . . You lie to me routinely.”…

Tell me they cannot possibly be SO STOOPID as to lose Jeff Macke now over at CNBC. Oh yeah I keep forgetting GE owned NBC tools:

BusinessInsiderDaily:

…We’ve confirmed with multiple sources that Jeff Macke is indeed engaged in highly stressful contract talks with CNBC, and the network has indeed been limiting his airtime.

Update: The Rickster: Market Mover Thursday: Weekly Jobless Claims…continuing claims rise to 6.662 million…

Heeeere’s Rickster, telling it like it is:Vodpod videos no longer available.

Data is in, weekly slightly lower but the continuing claims are still climbing:

Rick Santelli had a great segment this morning on this BS rally built on absolutely nothing, will get it up asap…

CNBC:

The number of U.S. workers filing new claims for jobless aid fell 12,000 last week, Labor Department data showed on Thursday, while so-called continued claims rose to a fresh record as the recession battered employment.

Initial claims for state unemployment insurance benefits declined to a seasonally adjusted 631,000 in the week ended May 16 from a revised 643,000 the prior week, the Labor Department said…

..The number of people staying on the benefits roll after drawing an initial week of aid increased by 75,000 to a more-then-forecast 6.662 million in the week ended May 9, the most recent week for which data is available. Analysts estimated so-called continued claims would be 6.65 million..
