Sunday Talk Shows
ABC This Week
As President Obama prepares for his State of the Union address, two powerhouse roundtables join George Stephanopoulos to tackle the latest challenges at home and abroad, Sunday on "This Week."
How will President Obama frame his second term agenda when he addresses the nation next Tuesday? As battles with Congress loom over the budget, gun control, and immigration, can any breakthroughs be made in the coming weeks? And will Republican efforts to rebrand their party work? Plus, as controversy over the administration's use of drones escalates, what foreign policy challenges will take center stage in President Obama's second term?
Rep. Tom Cole, Rep. Keith Ellison, Republican strategist and ABC News political analyst and contributor Nicolle Wallace; and Obama 2012 deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter debate all the week's politics, with the latest reporting from ABC News Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl and ABC News Chief Global Affairs Correspondent Martha Raddatz
And in this week's Sunday Spotlight, author George Saunders discusses his critically praised short story collection, "Tenth of December."
Meet the Press
This Sunday: House Majority Leader Eric Cantor sits down with David Gregory as Washington prepares for some big political battles in the coming months. Plus, we’ll get his thoughts about the direction of Republican Party as they reshape their message to voters.
One of the White House's top Senate allies, Assistant Democratic Leader Dick Durbin joins us Sunday as the administration faces questions about its drone policy. Should there be more transparency and what is the president’s authority when it comes to using drones against U.S. citizens? Also, can Democrats and Republicans work together as big budget deadlines approach?
Our political roundtable previews the president’s State of the Union address and breaks down the politics behind the budget battle. Joining us, Democratic Mayor of Atlanta Kasim Reed, former speechwriter for President George W. Bush now columnist for the Washington Post, Michael Gerson; GOP strategist Mike Murphy and the BBC's Katty Kay .
Plus, the debate over drones: NBC’s Michael Isikoff also joins the roundtable after breaking the NBC News exclusive this week uncovering confidential Justice Department documents making the case for the ability to use drones against American citizens.

CBS Sunday Morning
Depending which side of the debate you are on, the use of unmanned drones by the U.S. military to kill enemy combatants is either a powerful weapon in the war on terrorism, or a moral and ethical failing.
In our two-part Cover Story, CBS News chief national security correspondent David Martin looks at the Navy's newest drone technology; and Martha Teichner looks at the growing use of drones not just overseas, but on American soil to keep an eye-in-the-sky . . . on Americans.

Up w/Chris Hayes
The drone program, Paul Krugman on the recovery
On Sunday’s Up w/ Chris Hayes, we’ll continue our extensive coverage of the government’s use of drone strikes and its “targeted killing” program, focusing on the Justice Department white paper obtained this week by NBC News, which outlines the administration’s legal rationale for giving the president virtually unlimited authority to select American citizens for targeted killing. We’ll also discuss the confirmation hearing for John Brennan, President Obama’s nominee to head the CIA and current deputy national security adviser for homeland security and counterterrorism. We’ll ask what the law allows, what the Constitutional allows, what Americans think should be allowed, and what ought to be allowed from a moral and ethical perspective.
Then, Chris will sit down for a one-on-one interview with Nobel Prize-winning economist and New York Times columnist Paul Krugman, perhaps the most prominent progressive economist in the world. We’ll talk about the president’s latest bid to delay the looming sequester cuts. We’ll also ask Krugman about the role inequality plays in constraining economic growth. Krugman is currently engaged in a mild-mannered debate with fellow Nobel laureate Joseph Stiglitz over whether inequality is hampering the recovery, or whether the two issues are conceptually distinct. We’ll ask Krguman to respond to the case by Stiglitz on our show last week. And finally, we’ll ask: How long can the U.S. economy keep going with workers’ compensation falling and corporate profits skyrocketing.
Joining Chris at 8 AM ET on MSNBC will be:
Paul Krugman (@NYTimeskrugman), New York Times Op-Ed columnist and blogger, professor of economics and international affairs at Princeton University. Krugman won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 2008 for his extensive work surrounding international trade and two-way trade theory.
