From today’s NYTimes, a magnificent Frank Rich column about the last Crossfire broadcast:
This was a half-hour of television so egregious that it makes Jon Stewart’s famous pre-election rant seem, if anything, too kind. This time “Crossfire” wasn’t just “hurting America,” as Mr. Stewart put it, by turning news into a nonsensical gong show. It was unwittingly, or perhaps wittingly, complicit in the cover-up of a scandal.
Read the the whole thing – I promise you’ll be glad you did. Disclaimer: I take no responsibility for Mr. Rich’s claim in the above quote. However, I really really likes it.
