Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Sara Fischer, CNN

NPR's media correspondent David Folkenflik returns to Reliable Sources as our guest host this week.

With the government shutdown finally coming to an end, David Gura, reporter for Marketplace and Edward Luce, Washington Bureau Chief for the Financial Times will join Folkenflik to discuss the overage of the economic impact of the shutdown, including confusion over the concept of the debt ceiling.

Next, we’ll speak with former NSA official and whistleblower Thomas Drake about the difference between “whistleblowers” and “leakers,” and how the Obama administration has pursued leakers. We'll also ask Drake about his meeting this week with ex-NSA employee Edward Snowden in Moscow.

Later, the discussion on whistleblowers will continue with Lucy Dalglish, Dean of the University of Maryland’s Philip Merrill College of Journalism and Joel Brenner, Former Inspector General and Senior Counsel for the National Security Agency.

We will also look at lessons to be learned from several reporting mistakes this week. Andrew Lih, author of The Wikipedia Revolution and Maggie Haberman, senior political reporter for POLITICO will join us to discuss the danger of using new media platforms like Twitter when reporting.

Finally, the film “Fifth Estate” opens this weekend, facing controversy about how it portrays Wikileaks founder Julian Assange.  We’ll talk with the film’s screenwriter Josh Singer.

Tune in this Sunday 11am ET.
