By Becky Perlow, CNN
New York Times' media reporter Brian Stelter returns to host our show this week and he's brought with him a slew of great media topics to discuss. Since Sunday's still a few days away, though, here's a sneak peek to whet your appetite.
CNN's Frederik Pleitgen will be kicking off our show in Beirut with an update on the situation in Syria. Jumping back across the ocean to Washington D.C., our show will turn to the media's coverage of the Syrian civil war. The Huffington Post's Michael Calderone, The Daily Caller's Matt Lewis and Al Monitor's Foreign Policy Reporter Laura Rozen join Stelter in the studio to discuss how the media's coverage of the Iraq War might be shaping the coverage of the Syrian war, and ultimately, America's opinion of the war-ravaged region.
Then, The Guardian's Glenn Greenwald joins the show for an update on the NSA leak story and why it has become the story of the summer.
Keith Olbermann, formely of ESPN, MSNBC and Current TV, returned to ESPN this week with a new show. Deadspin's Tim Burke will weigh in on the anchor's 16-year hiatus from his first debut on the sports network, how Olbermann has changed and what he has planned for his new late-night show.
Finally, BuzzFeed's Whitney Jefferson swings by to assess the media circus surrounding Miley Cyrus' recent VMA performance.
Tune in Sunday morning at 11am ET.
