Veteran journalist Howard Kurtz is no stranger to criticizing the media. He did it for 20 years as a media columnist for The Washington Post and as host of CNN's long-running "Reliable Sources" from 1998 through the first half of 2013. So it's no surprise that shortly after departing CNN in mid-2013 for rival Fox News Channel he would premiere a show for his new employer that is modeled after his previous program. In addition to Kurtz and his weekly panel discussing how the press covers a variety of topics that include technology, social media, politics and sports, the host also interviews some of the country's top journalists. And, as you might expect in these social mediacentric times, "MediaBuzz" features some viewers' questions and comments on the show.
With veteran Washington correspondent John King in the anchor chair, "Inside Politics" focuses on the top political stories of the day with a rotating round table of top sourced reporters from CNN and from other media outlets. The half-hour program gives viewers an inside look at the stories driving Washington, directly from reporters on the ground. Prior to its revival in 2014, "Inside Politics" was first headed by Judy Woodruff, and it aired for more than 20 years on CNN before its cancellation in 2005.
Host, columnist, and best-selling author Fareed Zakaria offers insightful analysis and interviews world leaders, artists, scientists, business leaders, global affairs analysts, and other cultural observers for the "Global Public Square." Zakaria is also a syndicated columnist for The Washington Post, a contributing editor for The Atlantic magazine, and hosts in-depth, prime-time specials for CNN Worldwide. "Fareed Zakaria GPS" was launched in 2008 and each week's program airs worldwide on CNN, from New York or other locations around the world. The program is characterized by smart debate and discussion on world events and public affairs, designed to help viewers understand the world around them and the newest thinking on the globe's biggest challenges.
CNN's chief Washington correspondent, Jake Tapper, hosts this hourlong weekday afternoon program, which covers all the day's top stories from around the country and the world, headlines that span politics, money, sports and popular culture. "The Lead" works to ensure that viewers are caught up on the stories that matter, often highlighting news that may have been overlooked. Prior to joining CNN, Tapper served as senior White House correspondent at ABC News.
Anderson Cooper goes beyond the headlines with in-depth reporting and investigations. Through nightly "Keeping Them Honest" reports, Anderson keeps his commitment to holding those in power accountable. And, of course, there's the RidicuList, a tongue-in-cheek commentary on the day's news that may leave viewers (and Anderson) laughing. Joining him are guests that frequently include political and legal analysts.
"New Day With Chris Cuomo and Alisyn Camerota" is CNN's flagship morning program that sets the table for all of the day's news. The three-hour show features interviews with newsmakers, politicians and world leaders, and analysis from CNN correspondents and contributors.
