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>

Quotes

Jon Stewart: See, the thing is, we need your help. Right now, you're helping the politicians and the corporations. And we're left out there to mow our lawns.
Co-Host: By beating up on them? You just said we're too rough on them when they make mistakes.
Jon Stewart: No, no, no, you're not too rough on them. You're part of their strategies. You are partisan, what do you call it, hacks.

In the words of Jon Stewart, Partisan Hackery!
21 October 2004 | by (Savannah, Georgia) – See all my reviews

"Crossfire" like many other politically minded shows tries to make itself off to be a debate show and as Jon Stewart pointed out in what will no doubt became one of the most infamous incidents on the show: It isn't. It is theater. The hosts work under this false pretense that they are showing opposite sides, but really they represent their parties and not the viewpoints of the people. While, it is a little more two sided than say the O'Reilly Factor, it really doesn't debate the real issues anymore than a newsreport does.This show is again in Jon Stewart's words, "Hurting America!" They represent the politicians and the corporations that already have shows like Crossfire worked into their strategies. The people's viewpoint though plays little to no part in the show.
