So Long to CNN’s ‘Crossfire’

Crossfire304x200Where is CNN’s “Crossfire” you ask? Not on CNN as of late. And it hasn’t been for a considerable amount of time.

The Daily Caller’s “The Mirror” exclusively reported a CNN publicist saying, “The program is on extended hiatus” and citing “common sense” to predict its demise.

TVNewser reported on the show’s absence from programming earlier this month, a year after its network reintroduction with co-hosts Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter and Van Jones.

Stephanie Cutter Working for the Old Boss Again

Cutter with co-host Van Jones.

Crossfire‘s Stephanie Cutter has a side gig. President Obama appointed her yesterday to serve  on the Committee on the Arts and the Humanities. The fluffy position probably won’t distract Stephanie too much from her main job, which is good because Van Jones can’t be expected to take on S.E. Cupp and Newt Gingrich all by himself!

We were also surprised to see that Kal Penn is dipping his toe again into the Washington waters as part of the Committee as well. Here’s the gist from Deadline.com:

Obama Tuesday named his former Deputy Campaign Manager as a Member for the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities…A low impact patronage post, the Committee traditionally has the current First Lady as its Honorary Chair and Michelle Obama serves in that capacity for her husband’s administration…Cutter isn’t the only small screener to be named to the Committee lately. On Monday, former House star Kal Penn was appointed to Committee on the Arts and Humanities by the President. Leaving Hollywood for a spell, the Harold and Kumar actor worked for the administration in its early years and spoke at last year’s Democratic National Convention.

Van Jones: “Sleep is for Mortals”

cufflinksSo who sports the super-patriotic cuff links? If you guessed Van Jones from CNN’s Crossfire, you win! Actually none of you guessed Van Jones, so none of you win. But that’s okay, even the man himself admits they’re uncharacteristic.

“My liberal friends get mad at me for wearing them,” he told us through a mouthful of chicken tacos after his 6:30 show last night.

He’s not exactly a wrap-yourself-in the flag kinda guy after all. Indeed, his appeal on Crossfire is as an unapologetic, anti-war, anti-gun, pro-social welfare Progressive. Add to that a stint as Obama’s “Green Jobs Czar,” and detractors are quick to label him as one of those people trying to “destroy America.”

VanJonesVan himself isn’t bothered by such accusations. “You know, I think there are only two parties in this countries -the ‘Give a Damn’ Party and the ‘Don’t Give a Damn’ Party. Me and everyone I work with, we’re part of the ‘Give a Damn’ Party.”

We asked Van where co-star Newt Gingrich fell on that spectrum. “Oh Newt is great! You know I think I’m the only other person in the country besides his wife, Callista, who has read every single one of his books.”

Even the alternative fiction? “Okay, every non-fiction book.”

That’s what we thought.

“Working with Newt is a privilege though. The man knows everything. You never know when he’ll turn to you and say something like, ‘President Reagan once gave me some advice about life…’ How often do you get to have access to a resource like that?”
