Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

Despite being in hiding, former NSA contractor Edward Snowden has spent the week in the media spotlight after coming out as the source of sensational revelations about phone and computer surveillance by the agency. Also in the spotlight, The Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald, who interviewed Snowden and broke the surveillance story. He’ll join us once again to give his take on the week’s coverage and respond to critics of his reporting.  We’ll also discuss how the media has handled Snowden’s revelations with Paul Farhi of the Washington Post and Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times.

As jury selection continues in the George Zimmerman murder trial, we’ll discuss the case with former lawyer and anchor of CNN’s new morning show, New Day, Chris Cuomo.

Finally, we’ll look back at John Oliver’s first week filling in as host of The Daily Show with TIME’s James Poniewozik.

Be sure to join us on Sunday morning at 11am ET.

    You are absolute SLIME for dragging Snowden's girlfriend into the public spotlight. She is not a public figure....she had nothing to do with the NSA or the actions of Snowden. You have done exactly what Snowden predicted....you combed the internet and have tried to discredit and embarrass these people. Howard Kurtz should be ashamed.....but as we know, the press has no shame. Ratings is all you care about. Kurtz is a POS.

    Why is no one in the media and the congress understanding that when the Framers debated the Constitution and our liberties there was no middle east terrorist.

    Dear Howard Kurtz
    I watch your reliable sources regularly. I have an issue I want to call your attention to.
    I read news that Syrian government as well as rebel forces used sarin. Syrian governent forces have an upper hand lately over the rebel forces. I also read a story that the administration is contemplating supplying military aids to rebels.
    Is US trying to bail out Syrian rebel forces from getting defeated by the Syrian government force. I want to know how strong evidence exists for Syrian government attacking rebel forces by sarin. I want to know which side started using sarin.
    I want to know if US intervention in Syrian conflicts is legitimate in international law. Is this not an excuse for US to bail out
    rebel forces from a defeat by Syrian government.

    We remember US used the use of weapons of mass destruction to rationalize why US had to enter the war with Irag. It turned out that Iraq had no weapon of mass destruction later.

    Is US using a similar propaganda to get voters' support for interfering an international conflict.
    We are getting out of costly international war efforts. Should not US let European powers to take care of problems occurring closer to their own countries.

    Tax payers have no money to act as a policeman of the world. The coverage of US media on this Syrian issue seems very superficial in my view. No editorial in the media is asking penetrating questions to what is happening in this regard.
    I think that this is the area Howard Kutz can investigate and file an in depth report for the public. It is information which the public in US should be informed of. Hope it is not another propaganda to mislead the US public.
