Firing Line

A long-running series that addressed hot-button issues in lively, erudite discussions between the droll, conservative host and guests from across the political spectrum. The forum for clashing ideological viewpoints set the stage for future debate gabfests such as `Crossfire,' `Hardball' and `The O'Reilly Factor.'
