Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

As the Petraeus scandal continues to unravel, reporters are scrambling to snag every tidbit and rumor they come across. Closed session hearings on Capitol Hill and FBI probes vs. shirtless photos and VIP skydiving trips – where is the line between tabloid and hard news?

Tara McKelvey, a fellow at the Shorenstein Center at Harvard University, and Rajiv Chandrasekaran of The Washington Post will discuss their experiences reporting on General Petraeus, as well as how media outlets have covered the scandal and the rush to find the facts behind the buzz.

Amy Holmes, Anchor for The Blaze, Terry Smith, former PBS media correspondent and Margaret Carlson, a columnist for Bloomberg, will discuss Obama’s press conference Wednesday (the first since March) as well as partisan coverage of the Petraeus scandal.

Marty Baron, incoming Washington Post Executive Editor, talks about the challenges facing the paper and the future of print newspapers.

This Sunday, 11am ET.
