NEW YORK (AP) - After the crossfire, CNN's new debating crew plans a "Ceasefire."
The network is resurrecting its old "Crossfire" political debate show starting Monday. CNN Washington Bureau Chief Sam Feist said Friday that toward the end of every show, combatants will search for ways they can find common ground on an issue. The new segment will be called "Ceasefire."
"Crossfire" has been off the air since 2005 and will return with Newt Gingrich, S.E. Cupp, Stephanie Cutter and Van Jones as rotating hosts. They will debate one issue per night on the 30-minute show.
The hosts said in interviews that their show will offer genuine debates, suggesting discussions are often contrived on competing cable networks.
