Unfortunately for MSNBC’s Dylan Ratigan, he’s missing out on interviewing Wikileaks Founder Julian Assange this afternoon. Ratigan is ill and has been out since yesterday. Network execs were hoping he’d recover quickly, but it didn’t come to pass.
“Dylan was out sick today, and we are hoping he will be well enough to return tomorrow,” a spokeswoman said late Tuesday. “I’ve just heard from a producer on the show, however, that he’s still feeling very under the weather and Cenk well likely be hosting tomorrow. Unfortunately it’s still a bit up in the air depending on Dylan’s speed of recovery.”
Indeed, Cenk Uygur is filling in for Ratigan and conducting the interview.
