Roger Simon, Nia-Malika Henderson, Lynn Sweet, Lauren Ashburn and Howard Kurtz discuss the coverage of the controversy surrounding Rep. Akin's comments as well as pundits tying him to Vice Presidential candidate Paul Ryan.
Now more than ever, the press is a part of every story it covers. And CNN's "Reliable Sources" is one of television's only regular programs to examine how journalists do their jobs and how the media affect the stories they cover.
Brian Stelter is the host of "Reliable Sources" and the senior media correspondent for CNN Worldwide. Before he joined CNN in November 2013, Stelter was a media reporter for The New York Times. He is the author of the New York Times best-seller "Top of the Morning."
