Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

As we head into the last days before the election, media outlets are still reeling from the storm that swept across the Northeast. Sandy left devastation in the communities it touched, but the storm also stopped the campaigns dead in their tracks.

During the storm, both journalists and viewers looked to traditional newsgathering outlets as well as pictures and rumors playing out across social media. How did the press handle the balancing act?

As pundits and politicians debate the role of FEMA and climate change in this latest disaster, how did politics color the coverage of the storm?

Friday also marks the last monthly jobs report before voters head to the polls – with an unemployment rate in line with what many expected, and jobs added ticking slightly upward – how will this impact political coverage?

Ryan Lizza, political reporter for The New Yorker, and Frank Sesno, Director of GWU’s School of Media and Public Affairs will discuss how the storm rocked the political climate this week and how media responded.

Current TV host Bill Press, and San Francisco Chronicle columnist Debra Saunders will discuss how Romney has responded to a national disaster that put the President on center stage.

Larry Sabato,Founder and Director of the University of Virginia's Center for Politics, discusses the 2012 election and his critique of the press.

Sarah Lacy, founder of PandoDaily.com which covers Silicon Valley, talks about the role social media played as Sandy tore across the Northeast.

This Sunday, 11am ET.
