Pundit Alert -- Deggans Hits CNN Sunday
That's because producers at CNN's Reliable Sources program tell me my posting on Dateline NBC's "To Catch a Predator" series prompted them to offer a spot on the show at 10:30 a.m. Sunday (set your TiVos! Or make sure you're at church, depending on how you feel about seeing my ugly mug on the small screen).
I think I'll be speaking with host Howie Kurtz, media critic at the Washington Post, Glenn Reynolds of the blog Instapundit and Steve Roberts, a journalism professor at George Washington University who worked many years for the New York Times, pops up everywhere from NPR to USA Weekend, and writes a nationally syndicated column with his wife, former ABC anchor Cokie Roberts. (those who read an early version of this posting, saw that I both misspelled Steve's last name and made him a substitute host of the show. What can I say -- I was trying to finish up for the weekend...)
Though I have done MSNBC and PBS, this will be my first CNN gig, so wish me luck. And any ideas about points worth making on the Dateline issue or media in general would be most appreciated.
