Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

Where were you Tuesday night? Glued to your TV screen? Compulsively checking your Twitter feed? Although most outlets called the election for President Obama between 11:12pm and 11:30pm it played out quite differently depending on what channel you were watching: power outages and a “sleepy” anchor at ABC, Karl Rove questioning the Ohio projection on Fox, jubilation at MSNBC, and masterful magic walls at CNN.

Jackie Kucinich of USA Today, Peter Baker of The New York Times, and Fred Francis, former correspondent for NBC News,discuss how the media storm played out the night of the election as well as pundits already sounding off on the future of the GOP and what went wrong.

This Sunday at 11am ET.

Sneak peek at this Sunday's show

By Cassie Spodak, CNN

Tuesday night brought news that the U.S. Consulate in Libya and the U.S. Embassy in Egypt had been breached by protestors. Early Wednesday morning it was confirmed that the U.S. ambassador to Libya had been killed. Mitt Romney and Barack Obama’s campaigns quickly engaged in a war of words over the political fall-out. Romney called Obama’s first response to the attacks “disgraceful” with the Obama campaign firing back that it was inappropriate for Romney to “launch a political attack” after the death of a diplomatic officer.

Romney was attacked on both sides for “pulling the trigger” too soon, but does all the press attention to the political response overshadow the real story?

Romney is also facing criticism from conservative pundits for failing to pull ahead of Obama. Is Romney just the scapegoat?

Tuesday also brought the anniversary of 9/11 – coverage ranged from The New York Times making no mention of the event on their front page, to NBC’s Today show airing an interview with a reality TV star during the moment of silence commemorating the first plane striking the World Trade Center. But some outlets scheduled wall-to-wall anniversary coverage. 11 years after a national tragedy and terrorist attack, what kind of coverage is appropriate?

Clarence Page, of The Chicago Tribune, Ryan Lizza, of The New Yorker, and Amy Holmes, of Glenn Beck TV discuss the week in political coverage.

Paul Farhi of the Washington Post will discuss the mysterious film that incited the violent protests and how journalists have been striving to unveil the filmmaker behind all the controversy.

Media critics Gail Shister and Adam Buckman talk about Katie Couric’s new syndicated daytime show which has won strong ratings in its first week.

This Sunday at 11am ET.
