Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

Good morning! With Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 still the top story on CNN and elsewhere, what lessons have we learned about the media in these last three weeks of missing plane coverage? And what lessons have news organizations learned? I'll ask two guests at the very top of this week's "Reliable Sources:" James Fallows, national correspondent for The Atlantic, and Andrew Beaujon, a media reporter and blogger at Poynter.

I'll also ask Alan Murray, the president of the Pew Research Center, about this Pew survey that showed about 60 percent of people feel news organizations are providing the proper amount of plane coverage - or not enough. About 33 percent said there's been too much coverage. Murray will also discuss the findings from this year's State of the News Media report by Pew.

I've also invited an expert in crisis communications and reputation management, Carreen Winters, to discuss Malaysia Airlines' P.R. missteps in the days and weeks since Flight 370 disappeared. Winters is an executive vice president at MWW Group.

And: this week Ben Richardson became the latest person to leave Bloomberg News in response to the spiking of an investigative story about China. He'll join me from Hong Kong to describe what happened. (Bloomberg has declined to comment on the matter.)

Turning to the week's big political news, I'll ask two of Washington's best health care policy and politics reporters about how the media approaches the Obama administration's health care overhaul, two days before the open enrollment deadline. Elise Viebeck, staff writer at The Hill, and Sarah Kliff, formerly of The Washington Post's Wonkblog and now a senior editor at Vox Media, will both be here in-studio.

Tune in at 11 a.m. Eastern!

–Brian

    "Reliable Sources" just got done airing three people who are supposed to be reporters telling its thousands of viewers that Obamacare has now signed up 6 million people.

    Putting aside the fact that we were told ACA would cover 30-40 MILLION people, I'm left puzzled where the reliable source is to authenticate that number?

    I'm left thinking that had Romney won the 2012 election and his signature legislation promised jobs for every last American who didn’t have one and rather than delivering that number 6 million people actually lost their jobs, then the people were told the real number to be successful is SEVEN million jobs and in order to be successful there had to be a large number of people making six-figures to pay for all of those jobs that turn out to be minimum wage jobs or part time jobs CNN would not be giving viewers such happy coverage.
    Meanwhile if Romney's Sec'y of Labor just couldn’t seem to come up with the number of people who actually have new jobs that are paying the medium average wage of $51,017 {source: CNN Money, 9.17.2013} no matter how many times she is asked it is hard to imagine CNN would report any number coming out of the Romney White House as accurate. And CNN would not forget the who, what, where, when, how 6 million people who lost jobs so all these new jobs can be created fit into those figures.

    My point is: Does anyone believe that CNN would tell viewers that a net gain of 6 million jobs have been created without having INVESTIGATIVE reporters check with RELIABLE sources and making sure those numbers weren't bunk before beaming it into people's homes?
    CNN, what are your reliable sources for telling us today that Obamacare now insures 6 million people?
    Has Kathleen Sebelius, suddenly come off of her working vacation and supplied you with that number? {Doubtful.}
    Was the viewer told how many of these "6 million" new sign-ups did not previously have insurance and the reliable source for that information? {Nope.}
    Finally, was the viewer told just exactly how many of those 6 million new signups are actually paying for their new policies and how many are actually paying but are getting a kickback from the government to do so? {Absolutely not.}

    CNN, if you are going to put a show on the air called “Reliable Sources” you should apply investigative journalism and make sure your story actually has two reliable sources instead of just repeating White House talking points from an administration that has very little credibility left. The viewer would like to be assured that the same sources that told us the double whopper "If you like your insurance you can keep your insurance. If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor." isn't feeding us more whoppers with these numbers

    C'mon CNN, If you want to keep the new viewers you have gained from your alluring coverage of Flight 370, DO YOU JOB and make sure your "news" is actually accurate before beaming it out there.

    Thank you.

    This show is like an infomercial, cheerleading and try to sell you on particular political viewpoints. I caught the show by accident this morning and will never watch it again because of the extreme political bias. Shameful.

    Obamacare - why does bad news trump good news? That's the question the host asks.

    The host seems to forget that half the country thinks bad news for Obamacare is good news for the country. Reporting Obamacare care failure IS reporting GOOD news.

    Bias was exhibited in how the question was framed. The host would have done better to avoid "good" and "bad" and instead choose more neutral terms.

    But the "good" news is that the audience now knows where the host stands on the Obamacare issue.

    We have watched CNN for years and this past week, the OSO Washington landslide hit right down our road and CNN has given it hardly any coverage compared to Malaysia. We are right here in America which built CNN into what it WAS! We are no longer CNN "fans". If the mudslide had happened on the east coast, you can bet the coverage would have been 24/7. There are at leat 25 dead and 30 missing and CNN gives it a little blip compared to Malaysia. Shame on CNN! No longer CNN viewers, Darrington Washington

    WEAR A TIE, Mr. Stelter. You look like a high school kid. You do not look professional at all. It's hard for me to take you seriously without a tie on. This is not just a casual chat, you are on CNN and you should look important, which you do not. PLEASE WEAR A TIE so you look important and professional. Thank you. 3-30-14 Sunday Reliable Sources
