That’s not going to fly if Santorum calls out fake news. And I imagine he would.

Is this the best job Santorum can get?

Apparently so.

Santorum is what you get when you wrap a hardcore leftist in pseudoreligious Puritanism.

I’m convinced that there are two kinds of people on these political commentary shows. There are the Republicans who are there for fun, the money, the country club atmosphere and keep their name out there with their constituency... And then there are Democrats who are there to win the war against Republicans at all costs.

Witness Beckel coming back to The Five yesterday. Well, I did for the first 10 minutes anyway. Started throwing up in my mouth a little so I turned back to Barnwood Builders.

Is CNN trying to resurrect some credibility ? If not then I doubt Rick can last long there

I like Beckel better than most liberal commentators.

CNN trying to buy credibility.

They have no where to go but up.

Santorum needs to make sure he doesn’t let their scuzziness taint him.

I don’t have cable, and therefore I don’t have CNN. Thank God.
