Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

Tune in to "Reliable Sources" this Sunday at 11 a.m. Eastern! Here's a preview from the program's host Brian Stelter:

Good morning! I'll begin this morning's "Reliable Sources" with an exclusive TV interview with Christopher Ruddy, the chief executive of Newsmax Media, who is talking publicly about his plans to create a television and Internet rival to Fox News.

Here's a sneak peek of the interview:

BusinessWeek had an informative feature about Ruddy's plans a few days ago — check it out here.

I have two other big interviews to share: the first is with Liz Wahl, the Russia Today anchor who resigned on the air on Wednesday. "I cannot be part of a network funded by the Russian government that whitewashes the actions of Putin," she said in a video clip that immediately went viral. She'll tell me what happened right before and right after her on-air resignation.

The other interview is, for me, a pinch-me moment: it's with Neil deGrasse Tyson, the famed astrophysicist who is hosting "Cosmos," the prime time science adventure series that is premiering on Fox tonight. He'll tell me about the mission of the show and about whether he can help broker a peace in what some people call a war on science.

I'll also talk with two CNN commentators, Sally Kohn and Ben Ferguson, about what it's like to be a voice of opposition on Fox News and MSNBC. This discussion is inspired by a Columbia Journalism Review story titled "And from the left…Fox News." The story asserted this: "While the liberal hosts of MSNBC often skewer conservatives, the debates happen with villains who are not in the studio: lambasted, by proxy, in news clips. At Fox, they happen in person, with a real-live liberal who is often on staff."

I'll also have an update on the Al Jazeera journalists who remain imprisoned in Egypt, and I'll end the program with a tale of a single press release that misled so many media outlets this week.

Hope to see you at 11 a.m.,

    Last week I was inundated with a "do you support the president" survey. I got so tired of seeing it every time I logged on that I decided to get it over with and see what it was about. It was a survey. Interestingly, I don't think the pollsters liked my answers because they never came back to me to confirm my email as they said they would. Proves to me what I thought all along. These polls are worthless and decidedly slanted depending on who is polling. Don't believe me? Does the name Eric Cantor ring a bell? I never pay attention to these polls, I don't understand why intelligent people on television do.
