Crossfire is a nightly current events debate television program that aired on CNN from 1982 to 2005 and again from 2013 to 2014. Its format was designed to present and challenge the opinions of a politically liberal pundit and a conservative pundit.
In 2013, after eight years off the air, a new version of Crossfire re-launched on September 9. The panelists for the new edition of Crossfire were former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and political commentator S. E. Cupp representing the right with political consultant Stephanie Cutter and advocate Van Jones representing the left. The version was last broadcast in July 2014 and officially cancelled later that year.
