Christopher Hitchens’ comments on Crossfire, lest it rise from the grave  

As excerpted in The Quotable Hitchens:

Way back in Reagan’s first term, I was invited to CNN’s Crossfire studio to debate something or other. The usual form was - and still is - that some right-wing big-mouth would be asked to say how bad Communism or terrorism or child abuse or drug addiction was, and some liberal or leftist would be given a few moments to say that they weren’t so bad after all. Two conservative moderators, one extreme and one rabidly extreme, were on hand to see fair play.

Enough said, in my view.
