Why did they bring this show back?
 
2013-09-26 12:53:46 PM  
The only surprising part of this would seem that someone else got caught breaking ethics rules a day before Gingrich was.

How is it that the stupidest among us keep getting major media outlets to air their drivel? See Gingrich, Palin, Hannity, etc.

In their defense, watching Cornel West argue with Bill Kristol is more informative than watching Wolf Blitzer dance around with holograms and repeat the same thing over and over like a baby learning a new word.

Sadly, this is about the only way this show will ever get any publicity.

Between "ethics" and "rules," I don't know which word Newt Gingrich is less familiar with.

This. I though Jon Stewart took care of it when that show had that douchebag who wore the bowtie in it. C'est la vie.

You mean Disgraced Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich?

That Gingrich?
 
2013-09-26 01:03:28 PM  
Newt Gingrich struggles to remain relevant. Story at 11.
 
2013-09-26 01:05:19 PM  
Newt having ethics problems, must be a day ending in a "Y"
 
2013-09-26 01:05:36 PM  
This surprises me not in the least. Gingrich is a walking ethics violation in himself.

I read this in Kronk's voice.

"Ahh. The Gingrich. The Gingrich who's disgraced. The Newt Gingrich who is a disgraced former Speaker of the House. Newt Gingrich."
*beat*
"That Gingrich?"
"YES, KRONK."

Better that than Hairballs.  That show was a mess.

Because CNN absolutely sucks, ten years from now they'll be to news as MTV is to music or TLC is to learning.

I think it'd be funny if they made Crossfire into one of those Japanese-type game shows where they have political pundits run through various foam-covered obstacles. I'd watch the shiat out of that show.

Every week you'd need a two-parter separated by a few days: one day for the discussions, the intervening time to "fact check" against both "liberal" and "conservative" writeups, and Show 2 to explain to everyone that "well, it appears we couldn't find consensus on who was right - "SE Cupp initially appeared to be wrong by saying that 'Obamacare will triple your premia', but we found a source (ZeroHedge) that cited a WND study that showed that for certain income levels in certain counties, your premia do indeed rise over 300%. Similarly, when Stephanie Cutter pointed out that 'Obamacare has reduced premium increases by the most significant percentage since 1970', when taken with the facts that support Ms. Cupp's assertion, that these counties are seeing record increases, cannot be significant. So no one does the physical challenges this week, but tune in NEXT week, when Newt Gingrich might have to eat baby mice!"

actually penalties for a 'political analyst' making up facts? 24hr news would never be the same.

/also... to those with vivid imaginations, apologies for my previous remark. Now you know why Callista always looks like she does.

Newt Gingrich and ethics are two mutually exclusive concepts.

How is your show doing, anyway?

In other news, you are about 0.06% as smart as any of those you named, which is why they are rich and famous, and you are a nobody, and will always be a nobody, and when you die, about 35 minutes later NOBODY will remember you for anything you ever did in your entire life unless you hanged yourself on an interstate overpass.
