And former Crossfire host Bill Press thinks it’s a grand idea, as long as the show is the “real” Crossfire — the one he hosted — and not the “kiddie” version from 2002 with Tucker Carlson, Bob Novak, Paul Begala and James Carville.
And as Press told Politico, he knows just the right host:
Although Press says he’s not convinced CNN will actually bring back the show — “I think it’s hard to go back in television” — he says he’ll be waiting for a phone call from CNN head Jeff Zucker.
“I’m tanned, rested and ready.”
Here’s hoping CNN chooses anyone but Press. (Or Olbermann, of course)
