From what I read, this show is like Fox News Watch?

Anyway, I hope someone here can record Sunday's show, or CNN puts it up online. I'd love to see the interview mentioned below.

CNN/U.S. president Jon Klein will be appearing on his own network's media criticism program, "Reliable Sources" on Sunday. TVNewser has learned Klein is booked to talk with Howard Kurtz about the controversial hiring this week of former New York governor Eliot Spitzer as a co-host for a yet-to-be named political discussion program that will air weeknights at 8pmET on the network.


Let's put the NEWS back into Cable NEWS Network.
less World Sport, more World Report.

Well, yeah. Excluding LKL, it's probably the longest running show on CNN. In the '90s it aired on CNNI as well.

CNNI's version would be International correspondents, which hasn't been on for a while now.

Is Howie becoming a little defensive or sensitive lately? Fun from today's show:

Given that International Correspondents is already deader than disco (e.g. axed), they should bring back Reliable Sources on CNNI. This show airs weekly, and together with SOTU and GPS, not to mention this aired on CNNI before, why not air it again?

Isn't it rather focused on the US Media?

Very much so. If Reliable Sources ever went back to CNNI, I don't think it would ever be accepted as it is. They would need to do an international version for it to have any appeal to most of CNNI's viewers.

Please, no liberal/conservative/trapped-in-between US media crap for us.

Pretty weak show if it's only going to spend less than 3 minutes on the Octavia story. What happened, Kurtz? CNN management scared you off? I can't imagine he's thinking the story wasn't worthy of at least some panel discussion.

So with Howard Kurtz leaving, maybe this is a chance to re-energize Sunday mornings? I never really got a chance to watch the show anyway due to my schedule, but from a ratings standpoint, I think Zucker has a chance to do some experimenting with the show's format. From what I've read from various articles on the Internet, there will be a rotating schedule of hosts.

Kurtz is already gone. John Avlon, from The Daily Salon (I think, one of those magazine/website things) hosted on Sunday continually getting cut off with breaking news from San Francisco. Next week, it's TBD who will host. Hopefully someone part of CNN, not a random analyst.

John Avlon, from The Daily Beast.

I agree AJJ, this is Zucker's shot to liven things up on Sunday. Kurtz was decent in his day be he was on a downward spiral for a while now. He just came across as a lazy opportunist who has been phoning it in. And his drooling over younger women was getting old.

Avlon is a pretty good writer but from what I've seen, his tv presence has always been awkward. If he gets over that, he might be a decent pick.

Awkward as a presenter but lively as a contributor. Unfortunately, I forgot to record Sunday's show but from what I've read online, he interviewed some CNN reporters about some stories they've covered. Isn't that how the old format was?

Sounds like the old Back/story with Michael Holmes.

Backstory focuses more on the logistics, behind the scenes stuff, whereas Reliable Sources is more about fairness, ethics and the business of media. AJE's Listening Post is probably a better show to compare it to

 

CNNI did have a very good show similar to Reliable Sources once called International Correspondents ... until they axed it

Brian Stelter will be guest-hosting Reliable Sources in August:

That's a great decision. I've never seen him on camera, but I've always liked his writing. I just hope that if they pick him to be the permanent host, I hope he doesn't neuter his analysis the way Kurtz did after all those years.

I watched him a few times when he was a guest on CNBC and heard him on several more occasions on radio and, while I think he's a terrific writer, he never left the impression of an anchorman. Of course, being a guest is not the same as being a host and in the end he could be great. Even though I'm skeptical, I'll certainly give him a chance, cause when it comes to news media, he knows what he's talking about.

I think this show should turn in on CNN and have an entirely unaffiliated reporter cover CNN, CNNI, and HLN's highs and lows for the week.
