Storyline

One of the leading political talk shows in America, this program combined in-depth discussion of current events and issues with just enough conflict added to spur arguments onward. For each show, four panelists, either journalists, politicians or other similarly connected with affairs of state, with a wide range of opinions and viewpoints, were brought together to debate the impact of past events, the wisdom of current activities, and the proper courses of action for the future. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Jon Stewart: You know, it's interesting to hear you talk about my responsibility.
Co-Host: I felt the sparks between you.

Co-Host: No, the opportunity to...
Jon Stewart: ...is that the news organizations look to Comedy Central for their cues on integrity. So what I would suggest is, when you talk about you're holding politicians' feet to fire, I think that's disingenuous. I think you're...

Like it don't like it
2 September 2005 | by (Winnipeg) – See all my reviews

The show was one of the few the viewer heard a message from the right. Now right wing TV is a staple and contains a very big niche market. Cross-Fire was a show ahead of its time. I like it and don't like it depending on who is hosting the show. Pat and the other guy were the best chemistry the shows has. A little too much yelling and Springer now. You can throw in the Springer antics for 10% of the show. Anymore, the show starts to look silly. Tucker got that tie, and Carvel has those crazy hand gestures. Maybe this crossfire and the many copies have run the gambit. I would like to see maybe just one more type of show where they pit Lou Dobbs against Aaron Brown, and they would agree on many things which makes the show a little less silly. I'll watch Crossfire next year to see who is on it.
