President Obama’s golf outing with Tiger Woods last Sunday caused consternation among the White House press corps, who were denied access to the famous twosome. Is the Obama White House keeping the president too far from the press or is this level of access par for the course? We’ll discuss with the Baltimore Sun’s David Zurawik, Bill Plante of CBS News and Julie Mason of Sirius/XM radio.
We’ll also ask Zurawik whether MSNBC risks becoming seem as the de facto mouthpiece of the Obama administration, after David Axelrod and Robert Gibbs, two of the president’s closest first-term confidantes, joined the payroll at the network.
Former Romney campaign senior strategist Stuart Stevens will sit down with Howard for an exclusive interview. He’ll look back at the highs and lows of the 2012 campaign and give his perspective on how the media covered the presidential race.
It’s Hollywood’s big night on Sunday as the Oscars are handed out. With political-themed movies well represented among the nominees, we’ll talk to Washington Post film critic Ann Hornaday about how these films portray the inner workings of Washington.
Tune in Sunday morning at 11am ET.
