Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Pallavi Reddy, CNN

We’ve been hearing the positive and negative coverage of presidential candidates, but a recent Project for Excellence in Journalism study gives us a winner for best coverage and loser for the worst. The results may surprise you. Mitt Romney has had the most positive coverage during the primary season and President Obama has had the worst. PEJ’s Mark Jurkowitz, Change the Ratio founder Rachel Sklar, and Newsweek/Daily Beast contributing editor and CNN contributor David Frum will be on to discuss the studies’ results and the flak the president has been getting about his appearance on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”

The new HBO show “Girls” premiered just a few weeks ago amid lots of hype and continues to grab a lot of people’s attention between bitter attacks claiming racism, nepotism, and nearly anything else. Jezebel.com founder Anna Holmes and Huffington Post's TV critic Maureen Ryan join the discussion to talk about how this show has become a point of controversy.

We now live in a world where we’re constantly inundated with information and have access to news at our fingertips at all times. Clay Johnson, the author of a book “The Information Diet” will talk to us about how to weed out junk information and only get the information that you want and need.

Also, we’ll bring you an update on the Fox News mole Joe Muto and the accusations against him. In case you missed the interview, check it out here.

This Sunday 11 a.m. ET on CNN.
