The latest presidential debate has dominated the news, whether it was pundits sounding off on “binders full of women” or the role moderators play – but almost everyone agrees it was a very different Barack Obama who showed up on Tuesday.
Nia-Malika Henderson of the Washington Post, Roger Simon of Politico, and Jackie Kucinich of USA Today will discuss the criticism of CNN’s Candy Crowley and her performance as a moderator, as well as how media graded Barack Obama and Mitt Romney’s political sparring.
Washington Post blogger Jennifer Rubin and Current TV’s David Shuster take a look at how the pundits picked apart the debate. Is the press too focused on theatrics over substance?
Tina Brown, editor-in-chef of Newsweek and The Daily Beast, will discuss the recent decision to take Newsweek magazine all digital and end its print edition. The magazine merged with website The Daily Beast in late 2010 around the same time Reliable Sources host Howard Kurtz joined the site.
Media critic Jeff Jarvis will also give his take on the merger and what it means in the larger scheme of print media and online content.
This Sunday, 11am ET.
