Snowden's leaks prompt two movies

By Brian Stelter, CNN

Will there be dueling films on Edward Snowden and his leaks about NSA mass surveillance?

It's very possible, now that Oliver Stone has announced that he is writing a Snowden screenplay based on the book "The Snowden Files," published earlier this year by the Guardian reporter Luke Harding.

Stone and his producing partner Moritz Borman announced their plans - and said Borman is "fast-tracking" the project - in a press release on Monday.

The announcement comes on the heels of Sony Pictures Entertainment's acquisition of the rights to another book about the leaks: Glenn Greenwald's "No Place to Hide." Two well-known producers, Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, are attached to that project.

Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Becky Perlow, CNN

NPR's David Folkenflik returns to Reliable Sources this week as our guest host, and with breaking news stories dominating the airwaves, we've got a great show prepared for you! But with Sunday still a couple of days away, here's a taste of what you can look forward to on Sunday:

Following the breaking news of a mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, news organizations rushed to report who the shooter was, what kind of gun he used and how many victims were hurt. Mistakes were made along the way, though, that ultimately framed the coverage of the story. Emily Miller, senior editor of opinion at The Washington Times, and Andrew Lih, a professor of journalism at American University, join Folkenflik to discuss. They'll also take a look at how the Wikipedia page devoted to the Navy Yard shootings evolved as the news itself changed.

When mass shootings take place, there’s often a debate over the level of “gun literacy” possessed by reporters.  Washington Post investigative reporter David Fallis, who has reported extensively on guns and has worked to promote greater gun literacy among reporters - will swing by the studio to explain.

After Julie Chen came forward to share her experience with plastic surgery - based on advice from former superiors who suggested she would need it to succeed in the industry - a chorus of support and criticism has caused the Asian-American talk-show host to prove eye surgery is the only surgery she's ever undergone. Kelly McBride of the Poynter Institute joins Folkenflik to discuss Chen's decision to undergo the knife, as well as a broader debate on (un)realistic expectations for female journalists in the media industry.

Next up, The Guadian's Alan Rusbridger visits our show to discuss the partnership between the British newspaper and the state-side New York Times, as well as the issue of prior restraint or "pre-publication censorship" by the UK government.

Rounding out the show, we take a behind-the-scenes look at ESPN's "Pardon the Interruption" with co-host Tony Kornheiser, who discusses the system in place to fact check the numerous errors and omissions his show has made in its 12-year history.

Tune in Sunday at 11am ET.

Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

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.
