Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Sara Fischer, CNN

There’s a lot to discuss on ‘Reliable Sources’ this Sunday with our guest host, Eric Deggans, TV and media critic for the Tampa Bay Times and future TV critic for NPR.

We’ll start by taking a look at the coverage of the 50th Anniversary of the March on Washington. Additionally, we will discuss the media coverage of American civil rights with longtime CBS Evening News anchor Dan Rather, along with Senior External Affairs Director of Free Press, Joseph Torres and Founding Member of the National Association of Black Journalists, Paul Delaney.

Also on the show, we’ll speak with a Brian Beutler, political writer for Salon and New York Times Columnist Charles Blow about whether the media has been hyping the national race discussion and the fairness of its’ coverage.

We’ll also invite panelists David Zurawik, television and media critic for The Baltimore Sun and Mohammed el Nawawy, author and professor at Queens University of Charlotte to give their take on the launch of Al Jazeera America this week.

Kelly McBride of the Poynter Institute will also join us to discuss ESPN’s decision to pull its logo and credit from "Frontline's" upcoming documentary about the controversial subject of sports and brain injury.

Lastly, we will chat with Wil Haygood, columnist for The Washington Post, who first reported on veteran White House butler Eugene Allen, the man who served as the inspiration for Lee Daniel's new film, "The Butler."

Tune in Sunday morning at 11am ET.

    It took me several days to completely replace regular cigarettes with the electronic cigarette.

    I watch Reliable Sources every Sunday morning while taking care of odds and ends in my office. So this morning I wasn't looking at the show when it came on, but listening. I'm aware that each week you have tried out a new host. Today, I heard the voice of the new host, Eric Deggans. It got my attention and I watched the rest of the show. Mr Deggans showed a poise, clarity and calmness that I really appreciated. This is your guy. I would love to see him on the show every Sunday morning.

    I really enjoyed watching this Sundays RS. Dan Rather was very interesting and the anchor let him speak at length. The discussions were very interesting regarding civil rights and MLK. Great job.
