“Anger in America”
That was the name and focus of a segment on the little watched MSNBC program, “The Dylan Ratigan Show.”
On today’s episode, Mr. Ratigan had “Tea Party” leader Mark Williams on as a guest, apparently to discuss, well, “Anger in America.”
Instead of engaging his guest in a lively conversation, Ratigan embarked on a loud, self-indulgent tirade against Mr. Williams, largely doing more to embarrass himself than his guest.
I’ll let the clip speak for itself:
This guy is supposed to be the host of a program where people engage in conversation. A question is asked. An answer is given. Discussion ensues.
At least that’s how it should be.
Instead, Ratigan transforms himself into a raving lunatic, like Olbermann without the goose-stepping sycophantic guests.
Back in December, Ratigan employed the same tactics against Democratic Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. While she may be a leftist freak-a-zoid in her own right, she was a guest on his show. He yelled at and drowned her out so much she claimed to Ratigan, “You could be your own guest.”
This is the kind of exhibition you’d be appalled to see in a bar, let alone a cable news program.
That’s some operation they’ve got over there.
Anger in America, indeed.
