Dylan Ratigan's Rant On MSNBC

To give some idea of the anger and hatred of the independent Tea Party movement in the liberal-dominated media, consider this clip.

Dylan Ratigan is an ex-CNBC reporter and program anchor. Dissatisfied with bullying businessmen on his former network, he wrangled a political program on MSNBC.

I had the misfortune of being subjected to about 20 minutes of his tirades recently when waiting in a doctor's office, captive to a television tuned to the largely unwatched channel. That afternoon, Ratigan was ranting about health care and bullying GOP legislators.

It was evident that his producer prodded him to attempt to become a liberal Glenn Beck. By that, I mean using lots of props and trying to be theatrical. Beck is a natural at it, plus he has valid points. Ratigan looks, and is, forced, while trying to sell tired, unbelievable liberal pablum.

In this clip, we see Ratigan shouting down his own guest with a 'have you stopped beating your wife' sort of question. When his guest replies by asking about similar racism at NBC, Ratigan lashes out with a non sequitor, then goes ballistic.

Apparently, it never occurred to Ratigan that a grassroots movement focused on smaller government, which doesn't require formal membership, can't control everyone who claims affiliation with it.

I was at the Tea Party 9-12 rally at the Capitol last September, and saw absolutely no anti-black nor anti-Jewish expressions. The attendees were very peaceful and focused. The most energy emanated from the speakers' podium.

So much for truth from the liberal media.
