    GO DYLAN!!! Wow, someone who actually paid attention in class and asked real questions, didn’t accept softball answers, and continued to drill down…

    I find the reaction to the host chic for Morning Joe…she seems annoyed/embarassed by his line of questioning! Journalists (for lack of a better name) have become too polite and afraid to ask real questions. She clearly is paid to look pretty and ask softball questions.

    Ratigen is the one needs some schooling! Spluttering, stuttering, stumbling, disorganized, opinionated questions requiring 500-700 to deliver leaving no time to respond given the time limited structure of the television “news” medium is hardly comendable. Looks little more than grandstanding pedantism by an unprepared novice blowing a smokescreen.

    Newspapers use the “fog index” to simplify the ideas. Try it sometime. This is truly a disgrace and a bore.

    DR is on to something with the lobbying $$$$.
    Follow the money find the fraud.
    His delivery needs a lot more focus.
    He still thinks he is on ‘Fast Money’.

    That was great. Too bad MSNBC doesn’t have a huge audience. But I guess he wouldn’t be allowed to ask those questions on FOX or CNN.

    Brzezinski’s daughter thinks he asked “some really good questions.” How decent of her to give him that.

    Morning Joe won’t be booking any more White House big wigs while Dylan is on deck. “Hey, we’re just supposed to sit here, cross our legs, and sip some coffee. Chill out, dude.”
