Someone who did not feel that way at all was Capehart's mother, who called into the show this morning to give Ratigan a piece of her mind.
He was born for a bull market – hyperarticulate, effortlessly chummy, as fluent in Wharton nerd as he was in broker bro.
He was handsome, if older-looking than his years, and without a trace of slithery pretty boy.
A thoroughly chastised Ratigan could do nothing but apologize.
Dylan Jason Ratigan (born April 19, 1972) is an American businessman, author, film producer, former host of MSNBC's The Dylan Ratigan Show and political commentator for The Young Turks. The former Global Managing Editor for Corporate Finance at Bloomberg L.
In addition to his former duties as co-anchor on Closing Bell, Ratigan was a rotating co-anchor of The Call.
Ratigan left as host of Fast Money in 2009, provoked by outrage over the government’s handling of the 2008 financial crisis.
Since then, he has dedicated his work to launching platforms that engage and debate the U. government on policy, while opening the door for millions to learn more about money’s often poisonous role in democracy.
The winner of 2010 Gracie Awards for the outstanding host, who’s been the apple of everybody’s eyes since she started working for television, Melissa Lee has been very public about her professional life. Well, she is the current host of CNBC’s popular show “Fast Money.” Not only that, but she also hosts “Power Lunch,” a show that delves into the economy, real estate, media, and technology.
But after mortgage-backed securities started melting down and the rotten core of the financial system was revealed, Ratigan was feeling fraudulent – just another loudmouth cheering on players in a rigged game.
Between banking, which he said had become "a criminal enterprise," and what he called "the unadulterated idiocy of the entire government," his show began to reflect his belief that the country was "completely screwed." But he kept at it: "I tried to use my rhetorical power and my platform to prosecute this stuff at four in the afternoon on MSNBC," he says, "and it wasn't working." And as the great shouter's frustration grew, his profile rose and his bosses were happy.
From a very early age, Lee found her interest in reporting.
