Hmm, who is more relevant, Dylan Ratigan or Joy Behar? They pick Joy Behar. Someone else I couldn't care less about watching. But who knows, after the election Granholm may well be leaving (?) and they will need to fill the 9:00 slot, unless that's going to Vanguard.
I suspect Ratigan was pretty unhappy with the straight-jacket MSNBC put him in and that's why he didn't want to renew. If I remember correctly, MSNBC temporarily suspended him last year for being involved with the Occupy movement.
Fortunately, I have been inspired by meeting countless "doers" like Bea Cohen, 102 years old and one of the original "Rosie the Riveters" to contemporaries like Marine Veteran Colin Archipley who, after serving three tours in Iraq, started "Archi's Acres" with his wife in San Diego to teach returning veterans how to use low-cost, hydroponic, organic farming techniques to create good jobs that produce twice as much food, at a higher quality, using 90 percent less soil and water.
They are pointing us -- through their actions in history and today -- on a clear mission to seize new tools and take cultural risks to resolve our challenges. Bea Cohen and millions of other women did this in the past. Millions of men and women are doing this now -- simply by daring to create new, sustainable, tolerant, problem-solving cultures in almost every social, personal and financial system.
It is in this context that I have decided to leave cable news to collaborate and join with some of these leaders to experiment and explore new ways to tell their stories.
