Sneak peek at this Sunday's show...

By CNN's Elizabeth Cherneff

Team Reliable Sources is happy to welcome back NPR TV critic Eric Deggans as our guest host this weekend!

First up on Sunday’s show, following separate apologies from MSNBC hosts Martin Bashir and Alec Baldwin this past week, we’ll discuss the broader impact on the cable channel with The Washington Post’s Erik Wemple and Amy Holmes, anchor for The Blaze.

Next we’ll turn our focus to Michigan’s Flint Journal newspaper, which apologized to readers after failing to realize/report that a candidate for city council was a convicted murder. Vincent Duffy, News Director of Michigan Radio, and Richard Prince of the Maynard Institute for Journalism Education will join guest host Eric Deggans for the discussion.

With Buzzfeed announcing the addition of an international women’s rights correspondent to its ranks, we’ll look at the need for a dedicated beat reporter on this front with Buzzfeed foreign editor Miriam Elder and Lauren Wolfe, Director of the Women Under Siege Project.

In the wake of Bloomberg reporter Michael Forsythe’s suspension and ensuing allegations of self-censorship, we’ll analyze the journalistic repercussions of the decision with The Atlantic’s James Fallows and The New York Times’ Christine Haughney.

And in our constantly changing media environment, we’ll talk to author Jeff Jarvis and NYU School of Journalism’s Jay Rosen (who will be joining Glenn Greenwald/Pierre Omidyar’s media venture) about how these start-ups will compete with more traditional media outlets.

Finally, we’ll discuss the notion that films with non-white casts are often seen as “race-themed”, regardless of subject matter, with our panel, Viviana Hurtado, founding editor of The Wise Latina Club, and Alyssa Rosenberg, features editor for ThinkProgress.org

Tune in Sunday at 11am EST.

    You actually chose Brian Stellar over Frank Sesno as anchor, and then consumed a significant section of this morning's show with a fluff piece interview of Brian Secrest?? A program with a history of critically reviewing news media accuracy/performance has been reduced to a weak promotional lightweight.

    Once more, Reliable Sources is the sacrificial goat when there are items that the CNN executives decide is such important breaking news that something has to give. This week it was the train derailment and an actor killed in a car crash. The former certainly merits continued attention - which is what it received on both State of the Nation and GPS. So why not another short interruption for Reliable Sources? This is al the more ironic in that both Crowley and Zakaria are repeated later in the afternoon, but not RS.

    Reliable Sources is one of the only things left that is (usually) informative, with a minimum of set-piece scripts from Dems and the GOP, as well as (usually) limited fluff pieces on Hollywood, etc. I'm afraid that its treatment indicates all too clearly how low it is as a priority for the "new" CNN, which I find barely watchable any more.
