CNN’s dreadful show Crossfire is cancelled. What will Parker Warby spokesmodel S.E. Cupp and staff-banging serial adulterer Newticles do with their spare time?
While we’d like to think that someone at CNN realized that their decision to kill it 10 years ago (thanks Jon Stewart!) was still the right decision, it appears to be a victim of other cost-cutting measures.
The first time it went out with a bang — this time it went out with a whimper; CNN’s Crossfire is no more. Again. The show had been missing in action for weeks and already some of its co-hosts — Stephanie Cutter, Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp and Van Jones — have been popping up as contributors around the network’s landscape. Some staff have been moved to other programs, and the remainder have been encouraged to apply for open positions within the bureau, source say — surprising, given that CNN is in the process of slashing about 300 positions… But today’s big CNN headline is the cancellation of Crossfire, which had been exhumed in September of ’13, and quickly did not catch on with viewers.
Ooh, that’s good and snarky!
Anyway, we are sorry for anyone losing a job these days and so for all the people who worked behind the scenes, we wish you all the luck in the world. Advice: at your next gig, if you see Newticles or Sippy Cupp, run like hell.
