Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

As media coverage of the controversial Trayvon Martin case continues to escalate the ideological biases of the media figures covering the shooting becomes more and more clear. Howard Kurtz will discuss the liberal and conservative slants in the media with Frank Sesno, the Director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University and Callie Crossley, radio host at WGBH of "The Callie Crossley Show."

Miami Herald reporter Frances Robles will discuss her reporting on Trayvon Martin’s death, including her scoop that Martin was suspended three times and had a “spotty school record.”

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin will talk about the coverage of the debate over the health care law at the Supreme Court this week – including his assertion that it was a “train wreck” for the Obama administration.

In the political world the media jumped all over Mitt Romney’s latest “gaffe,” Newt Gingrich defended the legitimacy of his campaign and Rick Santorum lost his temper at a reporter. Ana Marie Cox, columnist for The Guardian, and Michael Medved, radio host of "The Michael Medved Show," will discuss the latest in media coverage of the campaign control as well as President Obama’s candid comments caught on tape.

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

    This whole controversy would have been avoided had the Sanford Police and District Attorney done their duty and arrested and charged George Zimmerman for murder. None of the reporting actually being done would have been totally different.

    The press are seemimg to be the judge and jury! Why? A crime has been committed. A boy is dead. The man needs to be arrested.................Does it really matter what the boy did at school or what the killer did before....
    This is a true farce!

    I'm very upset listening today at the show. I rarely get upset at TV, but today I thought was just a 'sham'. To say it's wrong that Al Sharpton is involved and on air is so wrong. Fox TV – all of them – Glen Beck and the rest on Fox, they are all deeply in bed with the Republican party, events, etc. So, yep, they don't announce they are at rallies, but we know they go to Republican fundraisers, etc This is racism. You an't ask a black person to step aside as a reporter because they 'side' with a party. Glenn Beck sides with the Republicans, touts their cause, and never steps aside. It's pure racism. I thought more of CNN. I watch your show thinking it was fair. Now, a black pundit like Al, he has a show due to his political views. PERIod. Like Glenn Beck, before you watch him, you know his 'bent' or stance. I watch Al already knowing he's pro-democrat, even thought I'm an independent. I don't agree with everything he spouts, but I watch. Al was not hired to be 'objective'. You watch his show knowing that it's clearly NOT that. When I flip to Fox, I know that EVERY STORY will have RIGHT-LEANING BENT. Right or wrong, it's going to err on the side of Republicans. Trevon was killed and somehow Fox has a 'Right' spin on it; he deserved it just because he was black or had on a hoodie. But I know this 'take' on the news going in. I know what Fox stands for, that's why I have my remote handy and can turn it. I think it's very wrong to say a reporter who is HIRED for their own personal view and they spout that view, they ahve a right to attend rallies, etc.; that's their base. Let's be honest – Al is not true journalism. I thought you were. You have to create categories of Journalism. I'm a J-major from UF. You have to create CATEGORIES of Journalism. Glenn Beck, most on Fox, and Al and Chris M. on MSNBC are ALL pundits who have a view and they are not reporting news per say; it's news with their view!!! Period. Don't confuse the two. Al is doing the right thing! Go Al. You watch Al for his views, not because you want 'news'. I think it was wrong of your show to say "Al" was somehow not acting like a true unbaised journalism, etc. So be fair – the bottom line – these pundits are just that. PUNDITS. Theya re NOT journalist, don't confuse the two. almost wonder if you didn't have a reason or purpose for this...strange!

    My concern is if someone shoots another person and they die. They should be arrested and tried for the crime. I cannot understand why a country as huge as the USA has not followed the law of their country.
    So sad!
