CNN 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 in a segment called “Ceasefire.”
Americans have a right to their beliefs without left-wing reproach
Reacting to the not-guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman murder trial, noted liberal Van Jones asked: What? Do black children now have to dress up to go buy candy?
CNN announced Wednesday that it is bringing back "Crossfire," hosted by former GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich, former White House adviser Van Jones, former Obama adviser Stephanie Cutter, and current MSNBC host S.E. Cupp.
Former Obama administration green czar Van Jones took to Twitter on Monday to tout his arrest for a courthouse protest against Big Coal — the arrest he asked police to make.
One of President Obama's own campers — former White House green-jobs czar Van Jones — has come out in opposition to portions of the president's budget, presented to Congress on Wednesday.
Fox News chief Roger Ailes has stirred up some controversy in his new biography that includes critiques against Newt Gingrich, Joe Biden and President Barack Obama. The biography, by Zev Chafets, quotes Mr. Ailes as saying that President Obama “never earned a penny that wasn’t public money.”
Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul's filibuster against John Brennan's appointment to the CIA has gained national applause, and criticism, but one person who is standing with the senator on the president's drone program is a very unlikely ally — Van Jones.
CNN's Carol Costello asked her panel a question Wednesday morning that might have a few people scratching their heads. The "CNN Newsroom" host asked nonprofits founder Van Jones, Politic365's Jason Johnson and The New York Times' Ross Douthat if the Christopher Dorner case teaches us anything about guns.
President Obama has his second term and will never face voters again. On one of his highest priorities -- energy and the environment -- he's free to be the "transformational" figure he always wanted to be.
A new poll by the Hill found that 52 percent of respondents think President Obama does not deserve a second term, while 40 percent think he does. With economic growth stalled, unemployment climbing and record numbers of Americans on food stamps, the question is not why the re-elect number is so low but why Mr. Obama's support is so high.
While Vice President Joseph R. Biden's "back in chains" remark in front of a largely black audience on Aug. 14 definitely can be considered race-baiting, based on the Obama administration's reaction, it was more an off-the-cuff embarrassment than part of a calculated effort to rile black Americans and engender fear.
Have you heard of SWATing? Someone calls 911 falsely claiming that a person has killed someone or is about to do so. It can bring down a world of hurt, complete with sirens and a SWAT team with drawn guns.
Throughout history, political extremists have attacked their opponents, seeking to silence and suppress those with whom they disagree. Some form of bullying is almost always their chief weapon. These extremists invariably try to undermine democracy itself and silence their opposition.
Are you listening, Van Jones? Precious few moments in America's story have offered an opportunity like the one we have before us to realign politics and bend the long arc of history toward liberty. Occupy Wall Street activists decry the bank bailouts just as Tea Partyers have since 2009. Fine. If the occupiers really mean it, they should join the fight to finally end not just bailouts to banks, but all forms of corporate welfare.
Viewers “are tired of cheap debates but they are hungry for deep debates,” said Mr. Jones, a former Obama administration official who will take the liberal side with Ms. Cutter, who worked in President Obama’s campaign.
