Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Charmaine Crutchfield, CNN

This Sunday, Frank Sesno, CNN veteran and director of the School of Media and Public Affairs at the George Washington University, will return as our guest host on ‘Reliable Sources.’

We’ll discuss how the news media is covering Obamacare debates and the government shutdown with CNN commentator and NY1’s ‘Road to City Hall’ host Errol Louis, Washington Bureau Chief and Chicago Sun-Times Columnist Lynn Sweet, and former Huffington Post Washington correspondent/ Center for Accountability Journalism founder Dan Froomkin.

Next, we will sit down with host Michael Smerconish of ‘The Michael Smerconish Program’ on SirusXM Radio- we’ll get his thoughts on what it takes for a host to prepare for guests who come armed with talking points in the midst of partisan battles happening now in Washington.

Later in the show, we’ll visit Frank Sesno’s journalism class at the George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs for an eye-opening discussion on how the next generation of journalists retrieve their news and what they think about the coverage of the government shutdown.

Lastly, we will chat with award-winning filmmaker and director Eva Orner to discuss her new film “The Network,” which explores the development of Afghanistan’s most popular TV network in the years after the Taliban was overthrown.

Tune in Sunday at 11a ET.
