Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Pallavi Reddy, CNN

It’s been a rough vacation week for presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney. While with his family in New Hampshire, he’s been facing tough criticism in the Twitter world from News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch, the editorial board of the Murdoch-owned “Wall Street Journal,” and conservative columnist Bill Kristol. Julie Mason, host of Sirius XM’s show “The Press Pool” and New York Times Magazine’s chief political correspondent Matt Bai will be on to discuss the right-wing revolt. Bai will also talk about his unusual political media diet.

This week Anderson Cooper publicly acknowledged that he is gay for the first time in an email to the Daily Beast’s Andrew Sullivan—not on his CNN show or his daytime talk show “Anderson.” Blog posts, tweets, and articles were written, but what makes this everyone’s business? TV Newser columnist Gail Shister, Huffington Post Gay Voices Editor-at-Large Michelangelo Signorile, and the Tampa Bay Times TV critic Eric Deggans weigh in on the media coverage after Cooper came out.

We’ve been updating you on the Politico White House correspondent Joe Williams after he was suspended for making controversial comments about Mitt Romney. This week, Williams has parted ways with Politico. We’ll talk to him about his side of the story.

And we’ll have David Maraniss on to talk about how he reported on President Obama’s early years in Kenya and Indonesia for his new book, Barack Obama: The Story.

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