  • Deadline TV
Just when you thought that what CNN‘s Missing Malaysian Airliner story really needed to liven things up was a fluid ounce of weed killer scientifically administered to some of the talking heads, the network abruptly brought back Crossfire this evening, as if to signal to the country that its long cable-news nightmare was over.

And I did feel strongly that we had a lot that we had to manage, that I had to respond to, and that that should be my priority.” Clinton testified to Senate and House committees today about the attack by armed militants that killed U.
