On the show this Sunday, Bob Cusack of The Hill, Amy Argetsinger of the Washington Post and American University’s Jane Hall will examine the media’s fascination with the David Petraeus affair; have journalists given it attention to the detriment of more significant stories like the fiscal cliff negotiations? Also up for discussion, all those conservative pundits who predicted a Romney victory; should there be consequences for getting it so wrong?
Author and veteran military reporter Tom Ricks will join Howie to talk about David Petraeus and his relationship with the media before his downfall. Eric Deggans of the Tampa Bay Times will discuss his views on the way the media handles race. Finally, Jezebel Editor-in-chief Jessica Coen will tell us how her website exposed a collection of racist Tweets posted in reaction to President Obama’s re-election.
This Sunday, 11am ET.
