Sunday Morning Talk Shows: preview

ImageFor Sunday, September 14, 2008

FOX News Sunday (FNS): Host Chris Wallace has a Democrat, former Alaska Governor Tony Knowles, on to discuss Sarah Palin’s work as governor of Alaska. Her Republican lieutenant Governor Sean Parnell does the same. Then Karl Rove appears and sorts it all out.

This Week (ABC): Host George Stephanopoulos has Governor Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri) and McCain advisor Carly Fiorina on to argue about Governor Palin. Then a blast from the past: Alan Greenspan will be his guest to discuss the economy, and Fannie & Freddie.

Meet the Press (NBC): Moderator Tom Brokaw talks to surrogates: Rudy Giuliani for McCain and Chuckie Schumer for Obama.

Face the Nation (CBS): Host Bob Schieffer stuffs his half hour with Representative Julie Wasserman-Schultz (D-Florida) & Governor Janet Napolitano (D-Arizona) vs. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas) & former Lieutenant Governor Jane Swift (R-Massachusetts) on to argue about Governor Palin.

Late Edition (CNN): Host Wolf Blitzer starts with Tim Pawlenty vs. Bill Richardson then moves to Dianne Feinstein vs. Marsha Blackburn. That, and his usual cast of thousands.


Governor Palin blew past Charlie Gibson last week and she will get to talk freely to Sean Hannity on the FNC show he does with Alan Colmes next Tuesday and Wednesday. Sunday morning, we listen to other people talk about her.

The Rudy vs. Chuckie show on MTP should be interesting. Schumer’s been relentless in his attacks on John McCain and the GOP, while Rudy got in a few shots last week in St. Paul. Can Rudy make Chuckie apologize, maybe cry? Hmmmmm.

Poor Bob Schieffer.
