Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By: CNN's Elizabeth Cherneff

This week, all eyes turned to the Middle East as clashes erupted on the one year anniversary of Egypt’s landmark democratic elections.  By Thursday, the military had removed president Mohammed Morsy as scores were left injured in the violence that followed.

Guest host John Avlon will analyze the various media angles of the latest developments in Egypt with CNN contributor Errol Louis, Jackie Kucinich of the Washington Post and Josh Rogin, senior correspondent for Newsweek/The Daily Beast. We’ll also get our panelists’ take on the secret recordings revealing News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch’s thoughts on last year’s phone hacking scandal.

As news organizations cover issues like same-sex marriage and abortion, we’ll talk to the Family Research Council’s Ken Blackwell about how both sides of these emotional debates are represented in the media.

Later in the show, we’ll talk to Newsweek/The Daily Beast’s Michael Moynihan about The Observer publishing, then pulling, a poorly-sourced NSA story – but not before several other news organizations picked it up.

Also on the program, we’ll share a never-before-seen interview featuring the late journalist Michael Hastings and his wife Elise Jordan. And finally, we’ll stop by Washington DC’s Newseum to remember journalists around the world who currently remain imprisoned or missing.

Tune in Sunday at 11am ET.

    Would love for someone to help me find the websites the gentleman from Florida talked about on today's show during coverage of flight 214. There was one that showed tweets as they were happening and, I believe he talked about several others. No DVR so could not rewind to write them down. If anyone can help, would appreciate.

    John Avlon is amazing! He is a brilliant, unbiased, objective, frank, honest, truthful writer and explains the news very well on CNN. I do enjoy watching him.

    John Avlon agreed that part of the definition of being an unreliable source is if that source is a "...9/11 truther...". Shame on you John and CNN. Just because you don't agree with those who have brought objective evidence (something you all seem to not deal with very much) to the public eye, does not necessarily make them an unreliable source. The constant subtle little comments that go unnoticed by so many only serve to constantly poisoning the water and leading to less and less real open discussion and debate. Consider yourselves spanked for poor journalism. That is all!
