Sneak peek at this Sunday's show - 8/10, 11am

Good morning! We have an excellent edition of "Reliable Sources" in store for you. Including more of my interview with the man you see above: conservative commentator and media mogul Glenn Beck.

But we'll begin with the very latest news from Iraq, Israel and Gaza. "Crossfire" co-host SE Cupp and Arab American Institute president James Zogby will join me to discuss media bias by omission, something that Cupp brought up in this New York Daily News op-ed.

And Anne Barnard, the Beirut bureau chief for The New York Times, will join me to share her on-the-ground view of the death and destruction in Gaza. Barnard was the Baghdad bureau chief for the Boston Globe after the American invasion of Iraq, so I'll also ask her about the current instability in that country.

I'm especially looking forward to sharing my conversation with CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta — the topic is an essential one for "Reliable Sources" — how journalists should inform the public about the Ebola epidemic without exaggerating the threat. Dr. Gupta has a lot to say about the media's responsibility.

And, as I mentioned up above, there's part two of my exclusive interview with Glenn Beck. You can catch up on part one of the interview right here. This week the focus is on Beck's business — Forbes magazine says it earns $90 million a year. Is it a model for other big media personalities?

Here's a one-minute preview of the interview:

Later on in the hour, I'll speak with one of the country's top media writers — Ken Auletta of The New Yorker — about the future of CNN's parent company Time Warner. Rupert Murdoch withdrew his proposal to acquire Time Warner earlier this week... so what might happen next?

"I believe that Time Warner's real game plan is [this]: they don't want to sell now, but... I think they are prepared to sell in a year or two or three," Auletta told me. You can read my latest story about Time Warner on CNNMoney.com.

See you at 11 a.m. Eastern time,

–Brian

    Really? Ok, I get you want to cover him, good heavens it was a Beck lovel-fest, but Beck two weeks in a row when, frankly, there's some other stuff – BIG stuff – going on. I'd think you'd have run this on a day when the other big news item was prom.

    Just watched segment on Palestinian/Israeli conflict. Not sure why SE Cupp is given any credibility as she pcomossesses the intellectual capacity comparable to that of a stick.
