Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

After a week of viral videos starring both Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, pundits were clamoring to define the candidates by their sound bites. From Romney’s “not worrying” about 47% of the electorate, to Obama’s defense of “redistribution” of wealth – the candidates were defended and attacked from those on the left and right.

Peter Baker, of The New York Times, and Lynn Sweet, of the Chicago Sun-Times discuss the week in political coverage as well as how the candidates have made use of entertainment shows this election cycle. Appearing on a show like The View or The Tonight Show with Jay Leno can be a wild card, but there can also be a big pay-off with voters. Does it hurt or help the campaigns?

Headlines and pundits are proclaiming that Romney’s campaign is chaotic and disorganized –  is the GOP candidate doomed in the election or are liberals just seeing what they want to see? Conservative blogger for the Washington Post Jennifer Rubin, and liberal radio show host Bill Press discuss how the campaigns are fairing.

Bob Woodward, of The Washington Post, talks about his new book The Price of Politics, a behind the scenes look at the partisan deal-making that went into the debt ceiling debate last summer. Woodward will also give his take on media coverage of the election cycle.

This Sunday at 11am ET.

    I agree with Jim. It's appalling to me that the dominant media are not talking about a terrorist attack against the United States that occurred on the anniversary of 9/11 and the virtual failure of the Obama administration to anticipate and defend against it, all made 100 times worse by the subsequent stone-walling ("this was the reaction to the You Tube video that offended Muslims") and scapegoating of the California man who made the video. The idea that the media might be trying to protect the Obama administration by talking about Mitt Romney's so-called gaffe is extraordinarily disturbing.

    Mitt is a wealthy business man and he is not concern about average American people. He buy bankrupt companies and fire all employees. If Mitt is concern about Whooppie Goldberg how is he going to handle China and Russia and the rest of the world. We want to see his tax return of 2007 – 2010

    I'm surprised that you did not say anything about Romney's comment of the "four sharp tongued women who are not conservative." I am not a regular viewer of the show since it airs in the morning and I am a school teacher but when I have watched the show I have seen Elisabeth being quite sharp tongued herself. To imply that a woman who is not a conservative is sharp tongued makes me think that that what Romney is really thinking is that they are bitchy.

    amazing. An ambassador is dead and you have an administration that may be willfully misleading the public about the event. What does "Reliable" Sources lead off with? Some Romney fund raiser gaff. Give me a break.

    Please explain why CNN failed to contact the US STATE Dept immediately upon coming in possession of our deceased
    Ambassador to Libya's Personal Journal.

    CNN legal and news editors FAILED miserably in the handling of this Journal and the shadowy publication of its contents,

    CNN's gross missteps should be fully investigated and the amateurs involved reprimanded or fired.
    How could responsible adults act so inappropriately?
