Sunday Chat & Chews (Bernstein MTP; Wilson Face the Nation)

Sunday Chat and Chews. All air Sunday, check your local listings.

NBC's Meet the Press might have been remembered as "Woodward & Bernstein together again" (cue clip from the film Dick) but instead, it'll be known as "MATT COOPER SPEAKS!"

Lineup:

MATT COOPER
White House Correspondent, Time Magazine
JOHN PODESTA
President and CEO, "Center for American Progress"
Former Chief of Staff, President Bill Clinton
KEN MEHLMAN
Chairman, Republican National Committee
BOB WOODWARD
Washington Post
Author, "The Secret Man: The Story of Watergate's Deep Throat"
CARL BERNSTEIN
Former Washington Post Watergate Reporter

Apparently Bernstein worked at the Washington Post and then just sat around living off his investments, to judge by the credits above. (No, that's not what Bernstein did. I was making a pointed comment.)

At CBS, here's the lineup for Face the Nation:

Host:
CBS Evening News Anchor Bob Schieffer
Topics:
Karl Rove, The Supreme Court
Guests:
Former Ambassador Joseph Wilson
Rep. Roy Blunt
Republican - Missouri
House Majority Whip
Sen. Charles Schumer
Democrat – New York
Judiciary Committee
Sen. Lindsey Graham
Republican - South Carolina
Judiciary Committee
Jan Crawford Greenburg
The Chicago Tribune


So if I had to watch, which would I choose? ABC's This Week because I love pot luck! I'm joking. This Week still doesn't have their schedule up (or their e-mail sent out). If Carl Bernstein's given the opportunity to speak and to speak about current issues, that should be the strongest segment on Meet the Press. A number of you might want to check out Face the Nation for Joseph Wilson.
