Dylan Ratigan to leave MSNBC, people suggest he shouldn't let door hit him on the way out

Dylan Ratigan is leaving MSNBC and Martin Bashir will take his time slot. Criminy.

Evidently, this was to be kept secret until a report at The New York Times scooped them.


More from The New York Times.

Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, said in an internal memorandum Sunday afternoon that Mr. Ratigan “has decided to pursue new opportunities and will be ending his role as a full-time host.”

“Dylan’s distinct voice and his fearless approach to tackling complicated issues has been a key part of MSNBC’s growth and success,” Mr. Griffin added.

Mr. Ratigan said he would keep in touch with viewers through his personal Web site, DylanRatigan.com, which includes a campaign-style e-mail list. “Basically my plan is to meet with tons of people, learn from tons of people, and then figure out a way to take the narrative I’ve been talking about, and show the most effective ways to resolve it.”

Huh? Is that like the media version of a politician not seeking reelection to “spend more time with his family?” In any event, we hope his website garners more viewers than MSNBC!

His send-off on Twitter was slightly tepid, to say the least. Mostly, people just warned that he shouldn’t let the door hit him where the sun don’t shine on the way out.




Even Leftists on Twitter had few kind words, likely because he wasn’t quite Leftist enough. Mind-boggling.


Aww. Maybe he can get a job with Keith Olbermann? Snicker.

One Twitter user had an excellent suggestion for Ratigan’s replacement, if that whole Bashir thing doesn’t work out.
