Radigan's big move ... MSNBC?

Well the Dylan Radigan sweepstakes are over.  And the winner is ... MSNBC?

i am still trying to figure out the logic here...i suppose his agent worked the networks, cnn, fox bus even and came up empty in terms of attractive deals, that he wasnt as in demand as he thought, that sometimes free agents get screwed out of bigger deals when they either hold out too long or overvalue their talent.
