Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

The Republican Primaries continue to roll on. This week brought surprise wins for Rick Santorum in Mississippi and Alabama and the media seemed to recycle the same old narrative: Mitt Romney’s unpopular inevitability, Santorum’s struggle to overcome delegate math, and why is Newt Gingrich still in the race?

Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller, David Shuster of Current TV and Catherine Crier, author of Patriot Acts, join Howard Kurtz to discuss the week in political media coverage. They’ll also take a look at all the attention given President Obama’s 17 minute campaign documentary.

Howard Kurtz also interviewed Ali Wentworth about her new book, Ali in Wonderland: And Other Tall Tales, and new Yahoo! show Daily Shot. The comedian talks about her past relationships as well as her marriage to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

There was an explosion of attention over a New York Times Op-Ed written by Goldman Sachs exec Greg Smith. Smith used the platform to criticize the company and quit his high powered job. Erik Wemple of The Washington Post, Kai Ryssdal of American Public Radio’s Marketplace and Arik Hesseldahl of AllThingsDigital will be on the show to discuss This American Life’s retraction of a story about an Apple factory in China that they say had “significant fabrications.”

This Sunday at 11 a.m. EST.

    What is the point of the show when on the subject of whether to cover the lame duck candidates the reply is: "it makes great copy." per Cryer. There's nothing reliable about any of it. Is the show to romance the art of sensationalism or the integrity of journalism? Cryer and all pundits believe as long as the Rupert Murdoch model works then they have a job. Integrity of journalism are for foreign correspondents who are dodging bombs and bullets, getting kidnapped and murdered for the integrity of journalism. Reliable Sources is completely illegitimate. Real journalism sadly can only be discovered years and years later in the history of texts, after power structures have dissolved and editors have been reassigned.

    I like to see good reporting such as the Michael Daiseyre> Apple report. Now if only the same scrutiny would apply tp what people in power like Timoyhy Geitner say in public. RE: He says problem in the past was too ittle regulation of banks when in fact it may have been too much government directiion of lending practices and control of laws that forced banks to lend to unqualiffied borrowers. Explore: Dodd – Frank has worsened not helped the situation via more terrible regulations and government intervention.. Real reporting not just headline reporting is needed. Reliable Sources get to work.
