Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Becky Perlow, CNN 

It’s been almost a month since the Newtown shooting massacre not only left a nation shocked, but also encouraged lawmakers, lobbyists and pundits to finally put the gun debate on the political agenda. During the debate, many questioned how long the discussion would last – some said a week, while others suggested only as long as the media reported on the issue. The coverage, however, shows no sign of slowing down. Vice President Biden met this week with various groups to discuss current gun policy and CNN’s Piers Morgan made headlines when he interviewed talk show host Alex Jones. Jones gained attention for creating a White House petition to deport the CNN anchor after Morgan shared his views on gun control. Joining us this week to discuss are Paul Farhi, a media reporter for The Washington Post, Robert Costa, the Washington editor for the National Review and Keli Goff, political correspondent for TheRoot.com.

After several media organizations reported that Lance Armstrong was considering coming clean about his alleged doping, it was quickly announced that the crème de la crème of interviewers, Oprah Winfrey, scored the first sit down with the cyclist. USA Today’s sports columnist Christine Brennan swings by the studio to share her thoughts on what the interview will mean for the legendary Tour de France competitor.

From Johnny Carson and Jay Leno, to David Letterman and Conan O’Brien, the late night talk show hosts have battled for decades. This past week, one more comic was added to the line-up: Jimmy Kimmel moved to 11:35pm, directly threatening Leno and Letterman’s ratings. TV Newser columnist Gail Shister and Xfinity TV columnist Adam Buckman will join Howie to discuss what the change means for nighttime laughs and Nightline, the show that got bumped when Kimmel switched to the earlier time slot.  They’ll also weigh in on the ‘Morning Joe’ squabble, where a discussion on President Obama’s cabinet appointments quickly turned the morning show into a showdown.

And in a country well known for its restricted press and significant censorship, China made news this week when journalists at a Chinese newspaper decided to go on strike after an editorial calling for greater constitutional freedoms was censored by the government. CNN’s former Beijing bureau chief Rebecca MacKinnon will give her insights into the protest.

Tune in this Sunday at 11am.

    Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch as I found it for him smile So let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch! "No one can wear a mask for very long." by Seneca.

    Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between usability and appearance. I must say that you've done a amazing job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Safari. Excellent Blog!

    even here, CNN shows it's bias. The gun control story was dominated by the rant of Alex Jones and how that makes the gun freedom people look absurd. Well, you prattling twats (since you have that brit telling us how to run the country), why no mention of the sane dialogue with Sheriff Joe or with the advocate for gun rights? You taint the story with your prejudice, defend your commentator and say bothing about his demeaning comments, 'incredibly stupid man' or advocating one of them should be killed. Kiss up to Osama more, it may help your ratings.

    The AJ Vs Piers Morgan confrontation was nuts! A great breakdown was done on the Smells Like Human Spirit Podcast – I recommend it.

    "...conservative talk show host Alev Jones..."

    Hey Howard, Alex Jones is a 9/11 truther. He has also done kissy-face suck-up interviews with Alan Grayson and Cindy Sheehan, amongst other lefties. How dare you call him a conservative. What is happening to your brain?
