Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Pallavi Reddy, CNN

We're nearing the end of another year and it seems like we were hardly ever short on big stories every week. This Sunday's show gives us a change to look back and analyze the big scandals, the ever-changing presidential candidate flavor of the month, and the international protests that began with the Arab Spring at the beginning of the year.  Huffington Post contributor Lauren Ashburn, NPR’s Jamie McIntyre, and former NBC correspondent Fred Francis join us for a discussion about the major headlines of 2011. We also have Ben Smith on to talk about his unconventional move from Politico to BuzzFeed. And we’ll have the highlights of the best interviews on Reliable Sources this past year.

This Sunday at 11a.m. EST on CNN.

    Hello,

    I would like to suggest a topic for a future show...There is an impression out there that the establishmenttmedia didnt vet Barack Obama's background at the same level as the average Presidential candidate during coverage of the last election and no one seems to refute this.

    Two examples are the apparent disparity in resources and the amount of reporters, money and time spent in Wasilla Alaska versus Chicago during the campaign as well as the motivation and intent of the Reporters in both places. Some people dismiss this disparity and make the excuse that Sarah Palin was an unknown who needed to be researched, but for most Americans, Barack Obama was a relative unknown as well when he first started his campaign.

    Another example is the fact that a far right wing talk show host (Sean Hannity) had to talk non stop about Reverend Wright for a year before the Press decided to cover the President's relationship with him.

    Those are just two examples...People make this accusation all the time and I wondered if you at Reliable Sources accept it as true and if not, can provide some facts and data that there was a similar effort in researching and reporting the background of President Obama as there was with Sarah Palin, and with the same intent and motivation as well.

    Thank you very much and enjoy your show.
