Rula Jebreal and Jeffrey Goldberg discuss coverage of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict; Maziar Bahari on the recent arrests of journalists in Iran and his time spent in an Iranian prison
This Sunday, we welcome back Politico's Patrick Gavin as our 'Reliable Sources' guest host.
First up, NPR's Deborah Amos will join us from Beirut, Lebanon. A longtime NPR Middle East correspondent, Amos will offer her take on reporting from both Syria and Iraq and whether media comparisons between the two are fair.
Next, we'll speak with PBS anchor & 'CBS This Morning' co-host Charlie Rose about interviewing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. As one of the few journalists to sit down with the controversial Syrian leader, Rose will tell us why he considers his recent interview "one of the biggest of his career."
Also on the show, The Washington Post's Max Fisher will join us to discuss his recent piece, '9 questions about Syria you were too embarrassed to ask.' Following that, DecodeDC host Andrea Seabrook and CQ/Roll Call's Emily Cadei will join us to weigh in on how readers and viewers are processing the volume of news reports coming from Syria.
On the heels of Apple announcing its latest iPhone versions and Twitter's IPO filing, we'll ask technology columnist Farhad Manjoo what's behind all of the hype.
Later in the show, University of Maryland journalism professor Mark Feldstein will join us on a visit to the Virginia parking garage made famous during the Watergate era by reporter Bob Woodward and "Deep Throat."
Finally, Will Tracy, editor-in-chief of 'The Onion,' joins us to discuss satire, spin, and what's behind recent Syria commentary & op-eds from 'America's Finest News Source.'
Tune in Sunday at 11am ET.
