Sunday Morning "Talking Heads" Cheat Sheet

George Wenschhof

Phone tapping and Internet snooping by the NSA will take center stage on the Sunday morning shows. Meanwhile, the Department of Justice spying on Journalists continues to receive attention as Attorney General Eric Holder remains in the spotlight.

The kerfuffle in Congress over dueling plans from Republicans and Democrats to extend low student loan rates should be mentioned.

On ABC "This Week" the Guardian’s Glenn Greenwald, the journalist who broke the story on the NSA’s surveillance programs, discusses what we learned this week about the scope of U.S. surveillance.

CBS "Face The Nation" will also focus on sexual assaults in the military and will new legislation change how these crimes are reported and prosecuted.

Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich., is now the longest serving member of Congress in history. He tells Bob Schieffer about his accomplishments and regrets.

"Face The Nation" also covers foreign policy with The New York Times' David Sanger, the Washington Post's Rajiv Chandresekaran, Harvard University's Joseph Nye and CBS News State Department Correspondent Margaret Brennan, who will discuss Syria, and this weekend's summit with President Obama and new Chinese President Xi Jinping
