Meet the Press
How does the White House respond after a rough week? We’ll get the view from the White House this Sunday with President Obama’s senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer
Controversies this week involving the IRS, Department of Justice, and lingering questions over the attack in Benghazi have the Obama administration playing defense as Republicans call foul. What will the response be on Capitol Hill? We’ll talk exclusively to the Republican Leader in the Senate, Mitch McConnell
Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld joins us exclusively to talk about his new book “Rumsfeld’s Rules” and to weigh in on the Obama administration’s handling of U.S. foreign policy.
The chairman of the powerful House Ways and Means committee, which is taking the lead in the investigation into the IRS and holding hearings this week, joins us exclusively for the latest: Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI)
How will the latest controversies surrounding the administration affect President Obama’s big agenda items like health care, immigration, and the budget? What impact will they have on his legacy? Rep. Camp joins the discussion along with the chairman of the Democratic Caucus, Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-CA); Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan; and the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward
ABC This Week
As second-term scandals engulf the White House, Obama senior adviser Dan Pfeiffer goes one-on-one with George Stephanopoulos, Sunday on “This Week.”
Controversy consumed Washington this week, with bipartisan outrage over the revelation of the IRS’ scrutiny of conservative groups and the Justice Department obtaining AP phone records in a leak investigation, plus lingering questions about the response to Benghazi. As the White House fights back against the growing scandals, how will they threaten President Obama’s second term agenda? How far will these scandals reach – and how far will Republicans take their challenges to the Obama administration?
Plus, key lawmakers on both sides of the aisle – Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., and Rep. Charles Rangel, debate the fallout from the IRS, Benghazi, and AP leak investigation scandals, only on “This Week.”
Then, the “This Week” powerhouse roundtable takes on all the week’s politics, with ABC News’ George Will; National Journal Editorial Director Ron Fournier; American Urban Radio Networks White House Correspondent April Ryan; editor and publisher of The Nation Katrina vanden Heuvel; and ABC News Senior Washington Correspondent Jeff Zeleny
CNN State of The Union
Washington’s week of scandals. CNN is in the field surveying what Americans think. The president says his team has come clean. Republicans might be over-playing their hand. We’ll release the results of CNN’s new poll and get reaction from White House Senior Adviser Dan Pfeiffer
Plus, response from one of President Obama’s toughest critics,Senator Rand Paul on the IRS targeting conservative groups, the Justice Department probe of AP phone records and the Benghazi investigation.
Then, the lasting impact of the controversies on the president’s legacy and what it means for his second term agenda with USA Today’s Susan Page, Democratic Strategist Donna Brazile, Republican Strategist Ana Navarro, and CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jessica Yellin
CBS Face the Nation
Coming up this Sunday on "Face the Nation," we'll continue the discussion on the September 11th attack in Benghazi. Plus the two newest scandals in the nation's capitol, Associated Press reporters' phone records being subpoenaed by the Justice Department without their knowledge and the IRS targeting conservative groups seeking tax exempt status. The Administration already removed IRS Commissioner Steven Miller. What's next?
We'll start with White House Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer. Then we'll hear from the other side - Sen. John Cornyn and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah). Cornyn is the #2 Republican in the Senate and has been involved in the Senate Finance Committee's attempt to get answers from the IRS. Chaffetz has been a key player in the investigation led by the House Oversight Committee into what happened in Benghazi on the night of September 11th and what happened in the aftermath with the so-called "talking points" used by UN Ambassador Susan Rice when she appeared on five Sunday shows just days after the attacks that killed four Americans.
The President and CEO of the Associated Press Gary Pruitt will also join us to discuss the Justice Department's investigation into possible leaks involving a foiled terror plot in Yemen last year - should the government have access to reporters' phone records without first notifying them?
Then we'll turn to our roundtable with the New York Times' David Sanger, POLITICO's Lois Romano, The Washington Post's Dan Balz and CBS News Political Director John Dickerson
Fox News Sunday
The Obama Administration reels from the shock of three scandals as the President seeks to contain the damage by replacing the acting head of the IRS, releasing 94 pages of internal Benghazi emails, and pushing a national reporter shield law. Chris Wallace talks to Dan Pfeiffer, Senior Advisor to the President about all of this on Fox News Sunday.
As congressional committees gear up to probe the IRS, Benghazi and AP issues, we’ll talk with leading Republican, and member of the House Ways and Means Committee investigating the IRS scandal, Congressman Paul Ryan

Melissa Harris Perry Show
Actress and activist Angelina Jolie is back in the headlines this week, and not in the gossip column. More like the New York Times opinion page and the front cover of TIME. The star announced that she underwent a double mastectomy in February after finding out that she is a carrier of the BRCA-1 gene, which can dramatically increase a woman’s chance of getting breast cancer.
While Jolie’s decision to undergo such an intense surgery and to share her story in an effort to educate other women has been lauded nearly universally as brave, her circumstances are far from ordinary. The test and procedure Jolie underwent are not necessarily accessible to all women. On Sunday’s Melissa Harris-Perry, the host will discuss the politics of breast cancer–specifically focusing on Myriad Genetics, the company facing a Supreme Court lawsuit after patenting the BRCA gene and the realistic availability of this kind of medical care to all women.
Melissa will also address the historic fast food worker strikes taking place across the countrythis year, most recently in Milwaukee. On Wednesday, hundreds of McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Taco Bell and other fast food workers walked out demanding higher wages in amomentous demonstration of frustration with a status quo that makes the poor poorer and the rich richer. Check out our guest Dorian Warren’s new column about the strikes and the new film version of The Great Gatsby.
Also, #nerdland congratulates the Class of 2013! Thousands of college seniors will accept or have already donned a cap and gown this graduation season. But while that season is traditionally a celebration of young adults ready to forge their path in society, between debt, meager job prospects, and an uncertain safety net for the future, the class of ’13 is facing a stark reality. Host Melissa Harris-Perry will take a look at what it means to own a diploma in today’s turbulent economy, the shrinking accessibility to higher education and the future for our incredibly optimistic millennials.

1. What? No McAnus or his little Huckleberry Hound-sounding buddy?
On the other hand, it appears Dan Pfeiffer is gonna be busier than a one-legged man at an ass-kicking contest.
