Last night, after an eight-year hiatus, the political debate program, “Crossfire,” returned to CNN, and two of its four hosts, Stephanie Cutter and S.E. Cupp, have deep Massachusetts roots. Cutter joins Van Jones from the left, politically speaking, and Cupp joins Newt Gingrich, on the right. The program runs Monday through Friday at 6:30 p.m.
The Globe spoke recently by telephone with Cutter and Cupp, who are based in Washington, D.C.
