Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

Last Sunday night, football viewers were treated to a different kind of show when NBC’s Bob Costas filed a 90 second editorial, citing Jason Whitlock’s article on gun control. Media outlets immediately erupted with both criticism and praise for the veteran sports reporter. The issue was brought to attention after Chief’s football player Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend and then himself Saturday morning. Was it appropriate for Costas to sound off on the issue during half time?

Sports columnists Mike Wise of the Washington Post, and Christine Brennan of USA Today, discuss the criticism surrounding Costas and whether the sports analyst went too far.

Freelance photographer Umar Abbasi wasn’t sure what kind of photo he snapped when he started running towards a man trapped on the tracks of a New York City subway. The picture, which ended up on the cover of the New York Post the next morning with the headline “DOOMED”, shows a man in the last seconds of his life as a train barrels down on him. Did the New York Post cross a line when they published the photo?

Washington Post media critic Erik Wemple and radio host Callie Crossley discuss the controversial cover. They’ll also take a look at Fox News’ recent treatment of Karl Rove and Dick Morris in light of their failed election predictions, and the ethics of MSNBC hosts visiting the White House for a special meeting with the President.

ABC News Senior White House correspondent Jake Tapper talks about his new book The Outpost; an investigative look at one of the war's deadliest battles for U.S. forces in Afghanistan.

CNN anchor Soledad O’Brien, talks about her new documentary airing Sunday night on CNN at 8pm ET: “Who is Black in America?” and how her own history played a role in the story.

Ron Fournier, Editorial Director at the National Journal, discusses a recent piece he wrote about his relationship with his son who has Asperger Syndrome. Fournier has extensive experience covering the White House and politics and he talks about how his life as a journalist did and didn’t prepare him to understand his son’s story.

This Sunday, 11am ET.

    Just want to point out that the report about the two Australian DJs at the end of your December 9 program contained inaccurate information. It doesn't lessen the DJs' stupidity in any way, but the woman who committed suicide, Jacintha Saldanha, was NOT the nurse who provided information about the royal couple. Jacintha Saldanha was the person who answered the DJs' phone call and transferred it to the nurse.
