Sunday Morning Show *Preview* for 2/12/06 (not the live thread)
Network and Cable News | 2/11/06 | Network and Cable News Networks

Fox News Sunday (Chris Wallace)

NBC Meet The Press (Tim Russert)

CBS Face The Nation (Bob Schieffer)

ABC This Week (George Stephanopoulos)

CNN Late Edition (Wolf Blitzer)

This is NOT intended to be the live Sunday Morning Talk Show thread. I trust AB will do that as usual. This is strictly a preview of who will be on the main shows. The idea is to give folks a chance to muster their resources for that thread.

I would particularly ask that anyone with specific knowledge or resources about the topics / guests announced for these shows post them here so that the rest of us can go into the shows with a heads up on what to look for. For example, will Joseph Lowery be asked about Rep. Hoekstra's upcoming hearings about evidence that Saddam moved his WMD to Syria? And who wants to take bets as to whether little Tommy Daschle says "I'm deeply saddened" at least once during his stint on MTP?

RedState.COMs preview of the Sunday Morning Talk Shows for 2/12/06

The Sunday Morning Talk Shows - Lineup

By: Mark Kilmer · Section: Other Politics
For Sunday, February 12, 2006

Meet the Press (NBC): Host Tim Russert will hold one of those noisy, free-for-all roundtables about -- in the words of the shows web site -- "the domestic spying controversy." His guests, on order of relevance, will be Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Pat Roberts (R-Kansas) & House Intelligence Committee Chairman Peter Hoekstra (R-Michigan), House Intelligence Committee ranking Dem Jane Harman (D-Caliornia), and, for no apparant reason, Tom Daschle.

FOX News Sunday: Host Chris Wallace talks with Senators George Allen (R-Virginia) and Jack Reed (D-Rhode Island).

Face the Nation (CBS): Host Bob Schieffer will talk to Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice and DNC Chairman Howard Dean. The New York Times' Elizabeth Bumiller will be along to help him ask questions.

This Week (ABC): Host George Stephanopoulos talks to Rice and, of course, Joe Biden, then he interviews NFL Hall of Famer Lynn Swann on his quest to become the next Republican governor of Pennsylvania.

Late Edition (CNN): Host Wolf Blitzer chats it up with Senators Chuck Hagel (R-Nebraska) and Joe Lieberman (D-Connecticut), Iraqi MP Iyad Allawi, and his usual cast of thousands -- including the Prime Minister of Demark, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, about the Cartoon Riots.

What looks promising? Well, someone always says something on those Russert all-talk-at-once gabfests. We'll see how inspiring George Allen can be when seated across the table from the charismatic Jack Reed. (I'm kidding!)

Secretary Rice obviously has something to say, Joe Biden always does, as does Howard Dean. Hagel and Lieberman is not a promising segment, but Swann's appearance on This Week might be the most politically important interview Steph has conducted in a while. There are a lot of politically-minded people in Pennsylvania who'll want to hear what the candidate has to say.

I'll have the review of the shows at at about 2p Sunday afternoon.
