Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

The aftermath of the Boston bombings dominated this week’s news and it will again be the focus of this week’s Reliable Sources.

The coverage took on a noticeably different tone this week; measured, apolitical reporting has given way to partisan finger-pointing and ideological point-scoring. What explains the nastiness? We’ll ask syndicated radio host Michael Medved, Current TV’s Cenk Uygur, and Jane Hall of American University. Also, Boston Globe columnist Kevin Cullen will tell us about the work that went into his powerful piece describing the Watertown shootout between the police and the Tsarnaev brothers

In other news, we’ll talk to Daily Beast reporter Michelle Cottle about why she decided to write a very personal piece about her recent double mastectomy and we’ll ask New York Times columnist Ross Douthat whether the media has been rooting for the passage of gun control legislation.

Tune in Sunday morning, 11am ET.

    You media people floor me... You say you do not want to give airtime to the bombers and you want to honor the first responders and rescuers on site. I respect that! But then you have the PHOTOS of the bombers in your background continuously!! You are honoring the bombers by showing THEIR photos! Show the photos of the people who helped, the average citizen, the volunteer doctors and nurses! Don't have the photos of the bombers as your background photos! You are just liars if you pretend not to expose the bombers, and encourage other bombers into infamy. Do not show their photos. Do not say their names!!

    Why is the press left leaning? Maybe because most people in the press are reasonably intelligent and left leaning ideas make more sense. Why should we have more coverage of right leaning ideas. This is not an equal time issue since it makes no sense to give equal time to a crazy person.

    While it is important to never lose sight of the victims to any such tragedy, if we are to have any hope of preventing – or at least reducing such horrific events such as the Boston Bombing their is more to be gained by understanding as much as possible the people and circumstances that perpetrated them.

    In the mean time while 3 people died in Boston, 2 dozen in Newtown, and the many others that have died in similar events, millions have died at the hands of the Tobacco, Soft Drink, Processed and Fast Foods, and alcohol industries knowingly selling and promoting slow acting highly addictive poison disguised as food. Isn't there something out of order, hypocritical, and disingenuous in our priorities as we eat ourselves to death and consume the world into oblivion.
