Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

When the Supreme Court handed down several major decisions this week, including two historic same-sex marriage rulings, voices on both sides of the debate weighed in. On ‘Reliable Sources’ this Sunday, we’ll discuss the tone of coverage following these landmark rulings with the George Washington University’s Steve Roberts, American University’s Jane Hall, and former PBS correspondent Terence Smith. On the NSA/Edward Snowden front, our panel will discuss Glenn Greenwald firing back against journalists who question whether or not he should be arrested for his NSA reporting. And as companies continue to cut ties with Paula Deen, we’ll discuss reaction following the celebrity chef’s emotional ‘Today Show’ appearance where she addressed allegations of racism.

The highly anticipated George Zimmerman murder trial began in Sanford, Florida this week. We’ll analyze the extensive wall-to-wall coverage the trial has received with Tampa Bay Times columnist Eric Deggans.

Later in the show, we’ll talk to Elle Magazine editor-in-chief Robbie Myers and Rolling Stone contributor Janet Reitman about whether there’s a gender gap in reporting hard news stories in men’s and women’s magazines.

And finally, after a CNN career spanning nearly two decades, Howard Kurtz signs off as host of ‘Reliable Sources’ with some reflections on his time at CNN and the major stories he’s covered since the show’s first broadcast in 1998.

Tune in Sunday morning 11am ET.

    Gees I'm so tired of all the same-sex marriage stories. Just let them marry already! The world won't end.

    I am soooo happy – I just heard Howard was going to Fox – Thank goodness – I thought he was leaving the airwaves.....He'll be able to stay right down the middle with his reporting at Fox If you people who complain about Fox watched a few of their shows you'd know they are NOT all far far right.....As – MSNBC IS all far far Left! Too bad for CNN – They will be the losers.. As usual..

    I do not know who the man was, but during the discussion on the Paula Deen matter, this "gentleman" said that if you looked at the supporters of Ms. Deen's restaurant, "not a one of them weighed less than 200 lbs." Neither Mr. Kurtz nor his other guests questioned this statement. This man's comment was not only perjorative, but was as much a slur on the customers of Ms. Deen's restaurant and the residents and tourists of Savannah as anything Ms. Deen may have said in her past. Maybe this man should become a national pariah and have his reputation and career destroyed.

    So disappointed that you're leaving CNN. It's very hard for me to imagine a show such as yours having any credibility at all on Fox (or MSNBC for that matter). Because of their extreme bias and politicization of EVERYTHING, I don't watch either of these channels so I guess I won't know how you do but good luck anyhow. I hope CNN maintains this program with a new host.
