This week, reports of a U.S. government program tracking the personal phone calls, emails and texts of millions of Americans once again reignited the debate on privacy, protecting Americans and where to draw the line. Sunday on Reliable Sources, Howard Kurtz will talk to journalist Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian, who initially broke the news of the NSA’s phone surveillance program on Wednesday evening.
We will address this week’s coverage of the surveillance revelations with the National Review’s Ramesh Ponnuru, The Guardian’s Ana Marie Cox and The New York Times’ Charlie Savage. Our panel will also discuss the week’s top political stories, including Susan Rice’s appointment as National Security Advisor and why President Obama’s latest staffing changes are getting reaction across the political spectrum.
Later in the show, Mediaite’s Joe Concha will join Howard to weigh in on MSNBC’s recent ratings dip, the challenges of covering politics in a non-election year, and what Roger Ailes is saying about how he’s characterized in a new book by Bloomberg columnist Jonathan Alter.
And finally, everyone’s got an opinion about the Netflix series revival of “Arrested Development” – but what does this trend of streaming episodes mean for non-network produced tv? We’ll talk to media critic Ken Tucker and columnist Ana Marie Cox about how this trend is changing the way we watch our favorite shows.
Tune in Sunday morning, 11am ET.
