Tune in to "Reliable Sources" this Sunday at 11 a.m. Eastern! Here's a preview from the program's host Brian Stelter:
Good morning from New York City! "Reliable Sources" is on the road this week for Super Bowl Sunday. Sports Illustrated media reporter Richard Deitsch – who wrote this excellent television guide to the game - and ESPN columnist LZ Granderson will join me here in New York, with cameos from Joel Klatt of Fox Sports One and Trey Wingo and Adam Schefter of ESPN.
But the program will begin with what New Jersey governor Chris Christie's camp calls "the bombshell that's not a bombshell." Kate Zernike, national correspondent for The New York Times, is being accused of "sloppy reporting" by Christie - she'll respond when she joins me live.
Then a late addition to the program: the letter from Dylan Farrow that was published by The New York Times on Saturday. In it, Farrow writes that Woody Allen "sexually assaulted me" and that Allen "is a living testament to the way our society fails the survivors of sexual assault and abuse." Dan Abrams, the chief legal affairs anchor for ABC News, will discuss it with me.
I also have a very interesting interview with two people who have been on opposite sides during sudden disasters: CNN anchor Carol Costello and former FEMA director Michael Brown. I'll talk with them about how reporters pressed officials in Georgia about the terrible mess that developed in and around Atlanta after a couple of inches of snow earlier this week.
I'll also discuss the MSNBC tweet that offended many people this week with a former MSNBC co-host, S.E. Cupp, now of CNN's "Crossfire," and Errol Louis of NY1. (I also want to ask Louis about the way Rep. Michael Grimm threatened NY1's Michael Scotto.)
See you at 11 a.m.!
