Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

NPR’s Eric Deggans  returns to the host’s chair for this week’s packed Reliable Sources.

Its investigation into the Benghazi attack made waves when it aired two weeks ago, but on Friday the venerable CBS newsmagazine “60 Minutes” was forced to admit its reporting on the story was flawed. Bill Carter of the New York Times, Kelly McBride of Poynter and David Brock of Media Matters will dissect what went wrong.

Twitter made its stock market debut this week and its shares skyrocketed on their first day of trading. Despite never turning a profit, the social media site is now valued at over $24 billion. So what does the future hold for the publicly traded Twitter? We’ll get answers from Jeff Bercovici of Forbes and Sarah Lacy of Pando Daily.

NBC News’s payment for video footage of the collision of two planes carrying a team of skydivers has led to allegations of “checkbook journalism.” Did NBC cross an ethical line? We’ll ask McBride and Paul Farhi of the Washington Post.

The inner workings of the Miami Dolphins locker room have been under the media microscope this week after offensive lineman Jonthan Martin left the team and allegations swirled that he had been bullied by teammate Richie Incognito. Incognito has been suspended pending an investigation. So was it bullying or hazing, and how can reporters get to the bottom of the story? Two sports columnists, Dave Hyde of the Sun-Sentinel and Christine Brennan of USA Today join us to break down the coverage and discuss the challenges of reporting on a story where the facts are so subjective.

Tune in Sunday at 11am ET.

    Thanks for taking the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and really like learning more on this matter. If possible, as you gain expertise, would you mind updating your blog page with more data? It’s extremely helpful for me.

    I was channel surfing and found this show. The content held my attention for the entire hour. Thank you for investigating the press. Since Ted Turner created CNN I think journalist have redefined their role and I can no longer rely on their objectivity. I find myself surfing the web for original sources to gather my knowledge of current events. I believe PUBLIC TV's News Hour is the best OBJECTIVE source of news in America currently. Todays "Reliable Sources" was truly fascinating as it questioned journalists facts and objectivity. If you continue this format and the content of this show I will continue to watch.

    I am still waiting for Reliable Sources to raise the issue..,Why wasn't the media able to locate within the Federal Registry
    the fact that millions of Americans, as a result of ObamaCare, would lose their HealthCare coverage. This is a very important question, it challenges the credibility of the notion that the media is impartial.

    You need Howard kurtz again. What was fascinating about Reliable Sources, a program I never missed on Sunday morning, was the fair way in which Howard Kurtz presented media issues.

    Not happening anymore. Your progressive leanings are so apparent.

    It's a shame you have David Brock on spewing nonsense. He says Benghazi is just a political hoax that foxnews is pushing and he even brings in foxnews and healthcare. It's a shame the host did not correct him. Benghazi is not a hoax it is about the President of the free world editing talking points from the CIA and gives a speech himself blaming this on a video. It is 100% clear it was not just a random act over a video but Barack had an agenda to get re-elected and act like his firing polices are working when in fact his polices including Syria have been horrible. The president lied that is the issue.
