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.’ “

Update: Dylan Ratigan making lots of friends at MSNBC: termination of Ratigan, Brewer demanded after edited footage used to play race card…

Update: Glenn Reynolds links Megan McCardle who agrees shenanigans went on at MSNBC and Pajamas Media gives us contact info for MSNBC after the break..

McCardle asks Was There a Second Gunman in Phoenix? lol

,,,This is entering into the level of implausibility embraced by those who defended the Rathergate Memos.  Yet I’ve seen it stated as a positive fact in several comment sections.

But here’s how we know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the footage was not of the protester’s white doppelganger:  you can see the CNN reporter in the MSNBC footage.  Yet that reporter makes it clear during the interview that he did not see the mysterious other guy who was identically dressed and armed, but possibly white.

There is no reasonable doubt that MSNBC cropped the guy’s race out of the video with some extremely weird editing.  I don’t know whether the anchor knew about it or not–I presume she didn’t–or why they chose to edit it that way.  But the evidence is pretty overwhelming that they did, and that at the very least, the anchor made some stupid and unwarranted assumptions….

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.

continues after the break…

The Payoff..GE NBC CEO Immelt named to Economic Advisory Panel by Obama…also tapped: the woman who helped create subprime and kill Superior Bank, Penny Pritzker…Auston ‘NAFTA’ Goolsbee too! great!

Update: Auston NAFTA Doublespeak Goolsbee also leading the team! Oh Good, cause there weren’t enough untrustworthy shills on the panel already!

After two years of pimping out NBC and it’s frat boy cohort MSNBC to Team Obama as the Pravda of the Primary Season, Jeff Immelt and GE (parent of NBC Universal) have their payoff, a seat at the table as economic policy is proposed and managed….

Speaking of prostituting corporations and payoffs, reminds me of a tune…RED LIGHTS BURNING BRIGHT TONIGHT……I would feel better if they gave ‘Eddie’ a seat at the table myself….

Also named, Penny Pritzker (aka slayer of banks and stealer of family savings), IIRC her family STILL owes the FDIC MILLIONS for the failure of Superior Bank:

CNBC (whose parent is GE):

President Barack Obama is bringing in a team of outside advisers to help steer the economy out of a tailspin, while ridiculing Republicans for clinging to a “losing formula” as the nation plunged to the crisis point.
