Sneak peek at this Sunday's show - 6/15, 11am

Happy Father's Day! Here's what we have in store on "Reliable Sources" this morning:

First, a postmortem on House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's stunning defeat. Why didn't the political press see it coming? Roll Call editor in chief Christina Bellantoni will share her story about ripping up the newspaper's front page on Tuesday night... Politico congressional reporter Jake Sherman will tell me what it was like at Cantor's election night event... and New York Times editor David Leonhardt will talk about what lessons the press can take away from this surprise.
  ·· Before the broadcast, check out what Leonhardt told The Times' public editor, and read Sherman's April 27 story about the Virginia primary

We have two segments planned about the crisis in Iraq and Syria, honing in on journalistic questions. Famed war correspondent John F. Burns will join me, and so will David Clinch, the executive editor of Storyful, a company that sorts through images and videos from conflict zones like Iraq. Sometimes Storyful verifies images as real, other times it debunks them - Clinch will show how.
  ·· Before the broadcast, learn more about Storyful here

Later in the show, we'll discuss whether there is a connection between extreme rhetoric and extreme behavior, like last weekend's widely-covered shooting in Las Vegas. "Jerad Miller's anti-government frenzy was whipped up by the extreme right-wing echo chamber," The Daily Beast editor-in-chief and CNN political analyst John Avlon wrote in a Beast column. I'll ask him about that, and this new Pew study about political polarization.
  ·· Before the broadcast, read Avlon's column, titled "Hatriot Politics Created the Las Vegas Killers"

We'll also take a close look at Hillary Clinton's book tour with two media reporters, Dylan Byers of Politico and Erik Wemple of The Washington Post. While every other program focuses on Clinton's answers, we'll focus on the questions asked by interviewers. We've set up the studio like a living room so we can watch the questions and discuss the interview techniques on display.
  ·· Before the broadcast, check out what Byers and Wemple wrote about the Clinton interviews, and Byers' story about Chelsea Clinton's salary at NBC

At the end of the hour, I'll tell you what I think about the George H.W. Bush documentary that is premiering on CNN tonight. The documentary was financed by Bush's presidential library, but the producers say the library had no editorial control over its content.

Tune in at 11 a.m. Eastern time!

–Brian

    I now call your program UNreliable sources. Amazing that, as a CNN employee, you are not even aware that your company amended the number of shootings since Newton from 74 to 15.

    Here's a link to the story. I won't hold my breath waiting for you to correct your comments. Nor will I hold my breath waiting for the Daily Beast's John Avalon to retract his commentary that the right wing in America is a terrorist group. Amazing you can make the link between the Vegas shooters and the right and yet it slips your minds when the inconvenient fact that MOST of the mass shooters recently have been avowed Democrats, including the Hollywood brat.

    Oh well, I followed Howie Kurtz from CNN over to FOX where he continues reporting accurate stories from real Reliable Sources.
    CNN determined that 15 of the incidents Everytown included were situations similar to the violence in Newtown or Oregon

    http://us.cnn.com/2014/06/11/us/school-shootings-cnn-number/index.html?hpt=hp_c2
    A closer look: How many Newtown-like school shootings since Sandy Hook?

    (CNN) - After Tuesday's shooting at an Oregon high school, many media outlets, including CNN, reported that there have been 74 school shootings in the past 18 months.

    That's the time period since the December 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, where 20 children and six adults were shot to death.

    The statistic came from a group called Everytown for Gun Safety, an umbrella group started by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a passionate and public advocate of gun control.
    Without a doubt, that number is startling.
    Photos: Shooting at Oregon high school
    So on Wednesday, CNN took a closer look at the list, delving into the circumstances of each incident Everytown included.

    Everytown says on its web site that it gleans its information from media reports and that its list includes school shootings involving a firearm discharged inside or on school grounds, including assaults, homicides, suicides and accidental shootings.

      Hi there,

      I am aware of the change from 74 to 15, and I addressed it on the show this morning, at around 11:40am. We will post the video when it's online.

        Each Saturday evening I set the recorder for Reliable Sources. In my humble opinion, the program is one of the most important on television. This morning it seemed you were short on time, and the intent was to address a prior mistake. However, the adjustment made regarding school shootings was not made clear to me. It would have been helpful if your comments explained the actual circumstances involving the incidents pulled from the total numbers. You did give examples such as drug deals and suicide, but if I had a child in school those things would be important to me. I have absolutely no expertise on this topic; was it how the report was headlined?

        One of the more compelling things happening in this country, rarely discussed, is what is happening in certain states regarding how one is allowed to vote. We don't appear to be one nation when it comes to a most important and fundamental privilege.

        Keep up the very essential work that you do. Thank you.

    Count, Count, Count, Body Count! Add up all the deaths by all countries. Don't forget the dictators that have MURDERED their own citizens that may have be dissents, have political opinion, etc. or just simply taken up space.
    The majority of these MURDERS have occurred in GUN FREE ZONES.

    Why Americans have our first and second amendments. We also may own private property. USA is one of the FREE (i.e. some of our God given rights are being attacked) countries on this PLANET.
