Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Pallavi Reddy, CNN

On Friday President Obama announced his new immigration policy, which allows many younger illegal immigrants to stay in the country. Immediately all the cable news channels took to the airwaves with various angles to the story in anticipation of his speech. Conservatives voiced their disapproval, while liberals supported the president’s new stance. Howard Kurtz will talk to Jose Antonio Vargas, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist the founder of Define American, who revealed last year that he is an illegal immigrant. We’ll also have Current TV’s Cenk Uygur and the Daily Caller’s Matt Lewis to talk about the coverage of the president’s new policy as well as the war of words over Eric Holder’s grilling by Senate Republicans over “Operation Fast and Furious.”

Sunday marks the 40th anniversary of the Watergate story being broken by Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein. But could this type of investigative reporting happen today? We’ll ask the Washington Post’s vice president-at-large Len Downie, the executive chair of the Center for Investigative Reporting Phil Bronstein, and former Los Angeles Times media reporter Jane Hall.

For years, Michael Ware was the face and voice of CNN, reporting from any war zone around the world. Howard Kurtz will talk to him about what it’s like to come home after chronicling all these conflicts.

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