Dylan Ratigan's Life After MSNBC

Dylan Ratigan left his job at MSNBC last June. Since then he's been investing in a hydroponic farm which has backing of Whole Foods. Ratigan recently explained the dramatic shift on his blog:

Last Fall, I moved from NYC to north San Diego County, just outside of the Camp Pendleton Marine Base, to work full-time with Colin and Karen Archipley at their hydroponic organic farm, “Archi’s Acres.” After realizing how impressive their ideas and effectiveness are, I decided to invest the money that I earned for writing Greedy Bastards (which when combined with a loan from Whole Foods) to  build a 30,000 square foot “farm incubator” that can serve as the prototype for job-creating,  water-saving, food-producing, veteran-led hydroponic organic greenhouses nationwide...

 We have begun redeploying returning veterans and unemployed civilians to US cities, while coordinating with city, state and federal governments to create good jobs providing local, fresh food, reduced energy waste and pollution, improved wellness and rebuild infrastructure.

Before he left MSNBC, Ratigan was inviting Ted Rall on his show to discuss the necessity of armed insurrection. So his move to hydroponic farming seems like a much more productive use of his time. Here's a video produced by Whole Foods to highlight Archi's Acres:
