'Reliable Sources:' February 1, 2015

Watch all the stories from Sunday's show:

After 400 days in an Egyptian prison, Al Jazeera correspondent Peter Greste is free. But two of his colleagues remain behind bars. CNN's Ian Lee has the latest from Cairo, and Al Jazeera English managing director Al Anstey has a message for the Egyptian authorities.

Words matter. So why do Obama administration officials and some in the press shy away from labels like "terrorists" and "Islamic terrorism?" Ahmed Shihab-Eldin and SE Cupp weigh in.

The first Super Bowl was televised by NBC and CBS - but neither network has the footage anymore! Jack Whitaker, a play-by-play announcer at that historic game, describes the on- and off-the-field rivalries.

There is one copy of the CBS telecast of Super Bowl I, discovered in a Pennsylvania attic many years ago, but it's in legal limbo. Steven Harwood, who represents the man who found the tape, explains the situation.

The "Fox News Primary" is underway for prospective Republican presidential candidates. How important is it, really? Gabriel Sherman and Matt Lewis offer 2 different points of view.

The future of media is being invented in Silicon Valley - and some of the inventors are pushing their bodies and their minds to the limit, as CNNMoney's Laurie Segall describes in this report, part of her series "Sex, Drugs and Silicon Valley."

    American broadcast news is all meant to confuse people. No matter what channel you plug yourself into in the USA you are being brainwashed.

    Am glad Egyptian authorities executed 600 Muslim Brotherhood militants. That's 600 less "ISIS" do deal with today.

    Gene is right. Although I find msnbc more tedious than Fox News I regularly watch both. You'll never find someone who prefers msnbc who would go to fn to get what msnbc won't show. I know, because I watch both, they both give you a very willfully ignorant view of the world. Would be okay it the willful ignorance was just opinions but it's actually facts and entire stories of great import that each misses.

      And it is equally hilarious that FN makes up the stories that the others won't cover, by mere virtue that they are fabricated stories that are all opinion and have no basis in fact.

      Best to find news sources that are not partisan at all; just because one's slogan is "Fair and Balanced" does not make that true. CNN and MSNBC lean to the left. Fox leans to the right. Find some in the middle, with broadcasts that can not be termed "entertainment", and watch that.

        Yes. News sources like ancient bible manuscripts. Which are history written in advance. Job predicted the earth was a sphere hanging on nothing and Jesus said men would be marrying you know. Everyone knew the world was flat and that no men would ever be allowed to legally wed though.

    You would think the very first televised Super Bowl Game wouldve been under lock and key in a museum, wouldnt you? Wonder why it was not.

      My understanding is that many times, film was reused. Or had just decayed enough to be unwatchable.

        Film was all we had back then. Hollywood CA is built atop giant underground structures that do one thing: Store movie reels.
        Ha ha. Thought I was going to say build flying saucers didn't cha. lmao

    First Brian must have missed the Daily News report that Sarah Palin left Fox News (1/25/2015)

    Seconf the difference between CNN/MSNBC viewers and Fox News viewers is this: MSNBC/CNN viewers seldom stray from the herd while Fox News viewers tune in MSNBC/CNN because they have open minds and want to see all sides of any issue.

      Sarah Palin leaving Fox isn't really that newsworthy to any people who don't watch Fox News.
      Roger AiIes admitted that "I hired Sarah Palin because she was hot and got ratings,” he said. New York magazine reported back in May that Ailes thinks the former Alaska governor is “an idiot” and “stupid.”
      Given that, good riddance.

      Your second assertion is untrue; in any case, if you feel superior thinking that, have at it.

        If you think Sarah Palin is hot you are either lezzed out or are a man on meds.
