Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN 

TV anchors were all over the headlines this week. Katie Couric and Sarah Palin faced off again– but this time it was on dueling morning shows. Matt Lauer signed a new contract with NBC’s Today Show. And exactly one week after being fired, Keith Olbermann filed suit against his former employer Current TV and took to the Late Show to defend his case.

David Zurawik, media critic for The Baltimore Sun, Marisa Guthrie, senior reporter for The Hollywood Reporter, and Sharon Waxman, founder and editor of the TheWrap.com will join Howard Kurtz to discuss the latest in the media world.

In early March the NFL revealed that the New Orleans Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams had instituted a “bounty” on the heads of specific players of opposing teams. But the story became more TV-friendly when audio was published this Wednesday of a fiery speech by Williams to his team. It revealed him telling players “kill the head and the body will die” and naming specific players he wanted to “knock the  **** out of.”  And the latest fallout from the News of the World phone-hacking scandal has James Murdoch resigning as chairman of Sky News right before the company admitted to hacking emails for multiple stories. Howard Kurtz gives his two cents on the “bounty” scandal and repercussions for Sky News’ decision to stand by their actions as “editorially justified.”

Mitt Romney swept the primaries in Wisconsin, Maryland, and Washington DC Tuesday night, but it was comments by his wife Ann that got a lot of attention. Meanwhile, the media seems to have made its decision that Romney will win the GOP nomination. Debra Saunders, columnist for The San Francisco Chronicle, Erin McPike, National Political Correspondent for RealClear Politics, and John Aravosis, founder of AmericaBlog.com, join Kurtz to discuss the coverage of the campaign as well as President Obama’s aggressive comments on the Supreme Court and the media’s reaction.

This Sunday at 11a.m. EST.

    I agree that it's a great show, but:
    Should Mike Wallace be remembered uncritically, save for being too "passionate?" I can think of two stories, one where he bought the bs about sharks not getting cancer, another a fawning interview of Maxine Waters that should give pause to all the praise.
    And this NBC's second editing "mistake" in recent memory – the other being the removal of god in the pledge in allegiance – where the media do not give us a name.

    If you are a show that criticizes media, how deep should that criticism go?

      Oops. Make that Pledge Of Allegiance.
      BTW, David Zurawik, as usual doth protest too much. Sarah Palin got an hour. Kathy Lee Gifford gets sn hour each day. And the original GMA host, David Hartman, was an actor.

    Did your guest just say that Mika comes from a "right" leaning show??? Has he ever watched the show??? Yes, it's other host and namesake is a conservative but to describe the show as leaning right is unbelievable. I watch it every morning and like the show but everyone but Joe is on the left.

    Great comment on Derbyshire's inexcusable, extremism. Unfortumately, the accompanying picture, intended to be Rich Lowry, Derbyshire's formere boss, was actually Charles Colson.
