Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

The Obama administration found itself on the defensive this week as reporters demanded more information on the aftermath of the Benghazi consulate attack, the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups, and the Justice Department’s seizure of phone records from the Associated Press as part on an investigation into leaked information.

Howard Kurtz will be addressing the media angle in all of these stories this week. He’ll be joined by former AP White House reporter Jennifer Loven, as well as Mediaite’s Joe Concha and Jane Hall of American University.

The Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin and Dave Shuster, host of Take Action News, will also join Howard to discuss the media’s coverage of this week’s big stories.

Finally, Daily Beast reporter Michelle Cottle a recent story she wrote on her deeply personal decision to undergo a full preventative double mastectomy.

Tune in Sunday morning, 11am ET.

    3 motor shots hit 3 targets on the first try. Yeah it was a planned attack not a mob! It's only a mob 5 days before an election. Got to love politicians. Did we every catch these guys?

    "The scandals swirling around the White House". Really? I have to admit that Howard is good at parroting FOX talking points. Do you know the difference between a "scandal" and a controversy, Howard. Evidently not.
    And not even a single comment about the HYPING of these so-called "scandals" by FOX. Why are you so afraid of FOX, Howard? Are you concerned that they will engage in one of their patented full-blown personal and professional attacks against you and thereby hurt your ratings? Grow a backbone, Howard, or do a "Geraldo" and go anead over to you-know-who.

    I don't watch CNN very often but after listening to Howard Kurtz today, I won't ever watch "Reliable Sources."His pandering to Jennifer Rubin and rudeness to David Schuster was appalling. It was clear that he wanted only to hear what fit his agenda.

    I agree with Sydney. Let's hear what CNN has to say about Rachel Maddow's allegations against
    ABC News.

      No, actually, it was David Shuster who was rude. He interrupted Jennifer Rubin again and again. Howard had to yell at him to stop.

    What was reliable about the segment on the ABC news "mistake". A white house news correspondent quoting emails from a congressional source(republican, as opposed to the democratic white house) like it came directly from the white house is beyond the pale. At the very least, ABC should issue an apology directly to the White House. And maybe Howard Kurtz and CNN could revisit the meaning of reliable. DAN RATHER WAS DRIVEN OUT FOR WHAT?

    If you allow your guests to interrupt/flibuster//repeat talking points you become just another cable shoutfest. The segment that just ended was pathetic.

    You had two journalists commenting on the White House, Jennifer and David, who REALLY think that they are important.. There are things that need to rmain private. At this time the press is making the new instead of reporting it. Egomania persists

    I can only imagine just how badly David Shuster is going to embarass himself on the show today.

    I was wondering if you could throw light on Rachel Maddow's allegations against ABC News -see link below: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/26315908/ns/msnbc_tv-rachel_maddow_show/#51923619

    Hasn't Howard Kurtz been fired yet? The stink from his Jason Collins errors makes him a very Unreliable Source. Why does CNN tolerate a bigot?
