Crossfire Preempted

Crossfire was preempted today for continued rolling coverage of the Malaysian flight with Wolf Blitzer.  Crossfire has been preempted quite a few times since its revival – in fact, it was preempted at least once this week; I don’t recall the day off the top of my head, but it […]
