Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Jamie Gray, CNN

Tongues have been wagging inside the Beltway this week about a heated discussion between legendary reporter Bob Woodward and White House economic adviser Gene Sperling and a subsequent email apology. Is the White House in the habit of threatening journalists who write unflattering pieces or is this a storm in a teacup?

This week also saw Congress fail to reach a deal to avert the forced cuts in government spending known as the “sequester” and Mitt Romney’s first post-election interview. We’ll discuss all this and more with Cenk Uygur of Current TV, Tim Carney of the Washington Examiner and USA Today’s Jackie Kucinich.

It’s been an action-packed fortnight for Michelle Obama; the First Lady has appeared on Sesame Street with Big Bird, danced with Jimmy Fallon on his late- night show and even announced the Best Picture Oscar winner live from the White House. Does she risk overexposure with all these media appearances? We’ll ask MediaPost’s Barbara Lippert and the Washington Post’s Sally Quinn.

They’ll also discuss the media backlash against Yahoo CEO and new mother Marissa Meyer after it was revealed that she has banned employees from working from home.

Tune in this Sunday at 11am ET.

    Wouldn't you think that talking about the push back on stories by the White House, including the revelation by Ron Fournier. This practice of shielding sources for access is distressing.

    Couldn't disagree more! Why did Romney have to ask the media to report the Detroit comments correctly? And why is it that the Republican candidate must accept a biased media in a presidential election for that matter. Howard makes feeble attempts to shine a light the media but he is very careful to never really take a stand. From the Urban Dictionary:wishy washy
    Indecisive. Ineffectual. Afraid to stand up for what is right and moral.

    A typical attribute of a liberal. A liberal is afraid to demand accountability and responsibility. He lets people do whatever they want, no matter what the consequences. He allows anything, and says he is being tolerant and multicultural. In truth, he is being wishy washy.
