Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

Two weeks ago the whole country watched in horror as news of one of the worst mass shootings in U.S. history played out across TV screens and news feeds. This week, media outlets may have started to turn their attention away from Newtown, CT.  However, the debate over gun control has taken hold – from NBC’s David Gregory holding up a 30 round magazine on “Meet the Press” last Sunday, to a petition on WhiteHouse.gov to deport CNN’s Piers Morgan for “attacking the 2nd Amendment.”

Lynn Sweet, of The Chicago Sun-Times, and Erik Wemple of The Washington Post discuss how media have covered the debate over gun control and the line between advocacy and journalism.

LynnSweet will also join Bob Cusack of The Hill to discuss coverage of negotiations between Congress and the White House as we near the deadline for the fiscal cliff.

Former correspondent for NBC News Fred Francis, Editor-in-chief of Daily-Download.com Lauren Ashburn and George Washington University's Professor of Media and Public Affairs Steve Roberts take a look at the biggest media stories of 2012 – from Trayvon Martin, to the Petraeus scandal, to the Supreme Court ruling on Obamacare.

Politico’s Jonathan Martin and Glenn Thrush discuss their e-book “End of the Line: Romney vs. Obama: The 24 Days that Decided the Election” and give a behind the scenes look at the latest campaign cycle.

Reliable Sources also has a special look back at our best interviews of 2012 – from Bob Woodward on the back room deals during the debt ceiling talks of 2011, to how Darrell Hammond nailed his Al Gore impression for Saturday Night Live.

This Sunday at 11am ET.

    just caught your show RS for the first time this morning, living in Westchester county NY i would like to comment on the irresponsibleness for the Journal News to publish the names of permit holders. pistol permits in Westchester are not given out car blanch, the process usually takes from 8 months to a year and needs to be certified by a Judge. you are under tight scrutiny with federal and local background checks, even after all of this you will only likely be able to obtain a target and hunting restricted permit. this permit only allows you to posses the firearm when hunting or at a target range, that's it. the laws in Westchester are so strict that you are not allowed to have the gun readily available while in your home the firearm must be with a trigger lock and inside of a locked safe. I don't think the criminals will go through the permit process or lock up their guns in accordance with local law. actually only a handful of permit holders receive a unrestricted carry CCW permit, specific reasons for the unrestricted permit are necessary and must be approved by the county judge. in addition what people fail to realize is that in NY we do not have confidential information restrictions in regards to law enforcement. many of the names on the map listed are active law enforcement who require a permit for their employment, judges, retired FBI agents, retired cops and their families. what the journal news did was make every home of a law abiding pistol permit holder and their family a target, very irresponsible. just because there is a FOIA does not give them the rights to put us at risk. we should concentrate on the mental health of its citizens rather than the amount of bullets that go into a magazine or who on your block has a gun.

    Does Mr. Kurtz ever have any conservative journalists on his show?

    Just watching reliable sources and have to say the position of those in favour of guns is idiotic. And what do the DC cops think they are archiving by going after Dick Gregory other than making themselves look supremely stupid?

    As for Piers Morgan, it is REALLY a breath of fresh air that SOMEBODY is going after these goons for their inane positions.
