Sneak peek at this Sunday’s show

By Pallavi Reddy, CNN

This week we’ve seen two main characters in the Penn State rape scandal speak to the media: Jerry Sandusky and Mike McQueary. Sandusky’s phone interview with NBC’s Bob Costas definitely made stomachs churn, while McQueary’s interview with CBS left most questions unanswered. We’ll have the Harrisburg Patriot-News’ Sara Ganim, the reporter who broke the story back in March, to tell us about her experience. We’ll also be joined by Broadcasting & Cable editor Marisa Guthrie and television critics Eric Deggans, St. Petersburg Times, and David Zurawik, Baltimore Sun, to dissect the interviews and analyze the continuing coverage of the scandal. They’ll also discuss the latest TV change-ups including Chelsea Clinton signing onto NBC News, the new CBS Early Show announcement, and Regis Philbin’s retirement.

We’ll also tackle the latest political headlines: Cain’s Libya gaffe and the new Republican frontrunner, who was cast off just months ago, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. The Washington Post’s Nia-Malika Henderson, Current TV’s David Shuster, and the National Review’s Robert Costa join us for that discussion.

This Sunday at 11 a.m. EST on CNN.

    Howard is being very unfair to Chelsea. How many of his colleagues have journalistic training? So, she is Clinton's daughter. We don't choose our parents. Why was D. S. brought on the program? Coincidence?

    I was glad to see your panel rip NBC for hiring Chelsea Clinton. Apparently being an elite insider counts for more at NBC than working one's way up through the ranks of real journalists.

    Along those same lines I was glad to see your interview of Sara Ganim who has done long, hard work reporting the Penn State issue for the Harrisburg newspaper. I suppose she need not apply to work at NBC.

    Hey Howard Kurtz – Maybe the more relevant question is WHY did it take so long for "Reliable Sources" to finally showcase the Penn State Scandal when the story has been out in small market media since March 2011 ?!? Clearly "Reliable Sources" wasn't scanning the media for salient issues as it should!! Is "Reliable Sources" to good to pay attention to salient issues exposed by small market media ?!?!
