According to an unimpeachable source, a recent episode of The Daily Show, Dylan Ratigan has retired from his career at television news.
To get TDS' take on it, go to the second segment here. It's about 8:30 and some unavoidable ad segments in.
So I looked back at less amusing news sources and found that Ratigan actually left MSNBC almost a year ago.
Though I'm not one of his biggest fans, (if I were of course I would likely have noticed his departure sooner), I have mentioned him before. In the blog that I closed down when I opened this one.
I wrote a couple of entries there poking some fun at one of Ratigan's colleagues at MSNBC, Charles Gasparino.
Here is one of them.
You'll note that when Gasparino was pulling his bizarre tantrum, it was Ratigan who played the role of the responsible and somewhat exasperated adult.
As it happens, that's the role he plays on the piece in The Daily Show as well.
I hope things go well with the farm.
