"Ready for dinner"
Still dealing with a major journalistic failure on its hands, CNN has managed to distract the nation from its sloppy reporting with news that it may bring political talk show “Crossfire” back — with Stephanie Cutter and Newt Gingrich as hosts.
Although a source told Politico that CNN is only having talks with the Obama adviser and former speaker of the House, Twitter ran with the rumor:

Really happy to see CNN trying to elevate the level of debate by offering Newt Gingrich a chance to be on television everyday.— Marc Abanto (@MAbanto) April 23, 2013
Newt Gingrich to host Crossfire on CNN is a bold forward looking idea. #slatepitches— trifecta (@3fecta) April 23, 2013
Source (my brain): Newt Gingrich in talks with CNN for "Brian Fellow's Safari Planet" reboot.— Elise Foley (@elisefoley) April 23, 2013
