Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

The Republican Primaries continue to roll on. This week brought surprise wins for Rick Santorum in Mississippi and Alabama and the media seemed to recycle the same old narrative: Mitt Romney’s unpopular inevitability, Santorum’s struggle to overcome delegate math, and why is Newt Gingrich still in the race?

Matt Lewis of the Daily Caller, David Shuster of Current TV and Catherine Crier, author of Patriot Acts, join Howard Kurtz to discuss the week in political media coverage. They’ll also take a look at all the attention given President Obama’s 17 minute campaign documentary.

Howard Kurtz also interviewed Ali Wentworth about her new book, Ali in Wonderland: And Other Tall Tales, and new Yahoo! show Daily Shot. The comedian talks about her past relationships as well as her marriage to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.

There was an explosion of attention over a New York Times Op-Ed written by Goldman Sachs exec Greg Smith. Smith used the platform to criticize the company and quit his high powered job. Erik Wemple of The Washington Post, Kai Ryssdal of American Public Radio’s Marketplace and Arik Hesseldahl of AllThingsDigital will be on the show to discuss This American Life’s retraction of a story about an Apple factory in China that they say had “significant fabrications.”

This Sunday at 11 a.m. EST.
