Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

Hillary Clinton marked her final week as Secretary of State with a plethora of exit interviews on all the major networks that mostly stayed away from the hard issues. Should Steve Kroft and co. have given her such an easy ride?

Al Gore went on a media blitz this week to promote his new book, but the environmental activist also faced questions about his sale of Current TV to the fossil fuel-producing Qataris of Al Jazeera. Were the media tough enough on him or did they let some apparent contradictions slide? Also, MSNBC faced accusations that they selectively edited video of a Sandy Hook shooting victim’s father giving testimony. Was he really heckled?

We’ll examine all these topics with Dana Milbank of the Washington Post, Amy Holmes of “The Blaze” and former PBS correspondent Terence Smith.

Geraldo Rivera set media tongues wagging when he said that he was “truly contemplating” a run for one of New Jersey’s Senate seats. Is he serious? We’ll ask SiriusXM political talk show host Pete Dominick and Marisa Guthrie of the Hollywood Reporter for their take.

Finally on Super Bowl Sunday we’ll preview the big game in the second part of our interview with long time NBC Sports host Bob Costas and examine why companies are now releasing their Super Bowl ads before the big game kicks off in a discussion with Barbara Lippert of MediaPost.

This Sunday at 11am ET.

    Bob Costas conveyed the most intelligent and reasoned discussion about football; the pleasure and beauty in the game as well as its realistic problems. It was a pleasure to hear all that he said. Thank you.

    Howard, regarding your segment on MSNBC selectively editing the video of the slain child's father being heckled at the Connecticut hearing...while I agree it's entirely valid for you and your guests to go after MSNBC about their editorial practices, I certainly hope that you do the same for Fox news which has been accused far many more times than MSNBC. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
