What's Up With Jeff Macke?

As it relates to Tuesday night's completely bizarre episode with Dennis Kneale? Gawker reports that the network is worried about his mental health, which may have something to do with "stressful" contract negotiations. Apparently, we're told, everyone is "highly disturbed" by the showing, up to the "highest levels of CNBC," and some people wonder if he "overdosed on something" prior to going on the air Tuesday. Separately, we've also been informed that Macke has been on executives' radars for the past several months, after an on-air tiff with Dylan Ratigan caused Macke to send a drunk email later that night, joking that he was going to "break" D-Rat's legs, which the former Fast Money host proceeded to report to HR. (Really.)
