    Missed the extended coverage of the naked dude. That was priceless, the reporter seemed genuinely disappointed he didn’t get to see him first hand.

    It seems the new “non-partisan strategy” of CNN is to be stupider than MSNBC and Fox News combined. Either that or Viacom bought CNN and Stewart is secretly in charge. I mean, the DS doesn’t even need to edit the footage for it to be laughable.

    Too bad Mr. Stewart couldn’t have put up some info about where the reporters got their schooling or training.

    People forget, but the original Crossfire worked in part because Buchanan and Braden were very friendly on the screen. Putting politicians and political consultants, that are not supposed to have close friends on the other side of the aisle is a dumb idea.
