Must flee TV: CNN to relaunch ‘Crossfire’ with Newt Gingrich, Stephanie Cutter?

CNN is reportedly in talks with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and Barack Obama’s deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter to host its reboot of “Crossfire,” which was cancelled in 2005 but is set to return this June. We’ve found at least one person excited to see Cutter on air: fellow Obama for America veteran Lis Smith.

Whether or not Cutter excelled at politics is up for debate, but her on-air meltdowns during the campaign, such as her epic meltdown with Bret Baier over Benghazi, lead us to believe there just might be some entertainment value, especially when you add Newt Gingrich to the mix. The only thing missing is the conservative. Zing!

Is it really going to be that bad?
