Say what you will about the drugs and the drum circles, the Occupy Wall Street movement has brought out a more radical side of Dylan Ratigan, MSNBC’s straight-laced global finance correspondent and weekday afternoon anchor.
Mr. Ratigan was down at Zuccotti Park most of last weekend, interviewing participants and chatting them up about his new crusade on behalf of campaign finance reform. Late last month, Mr. Ratigan established a foundation called Get Money Out with the goal of amending the Constitution to forbid private campaign contributions. Since September 27, he’s racked up more than 170,000 signatures.
