Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

Where were you Tuesday night? Glued to your TV screen? Compulsively checking your Twitter feed? Although most outlets called the election for President Obama between 11:12pm and 11:30pm it played out quite differently depending on what channel you were watching: power outages and a “sleepy” anchor at ABC, Karl Rove questioning the Ohio projection on Fox, jubilation at MSNBC, and masterful magic walls at CNN.

Jackie Kucinich of USA Today, Peter Baker of The New York Times, and Fred Francis, former correspondent for NBC News,discuss how the media storm played out the night of the election as well as pundits already sounding off on the future of the GOP and what went wrong.

This Sunday at 11am ET.
