More than a month after the presidential election, issues surrounding it are still front and center — along with the continued coronavirus surge — as indicated by the slate of interviews scheduled for this weekend’s Sunday news shows.

Notable bookings for Sunday, Dec. 6, 2020: Chris Wallace will interview John Brennan – former CIA director, current Trump critic, and frequent target of Fox News opinion shows – on Fox News Sunday, while Sunday Morning Futures on sister network Fox Business will feature a full slate of Trump acolytes. Former CISA director Chris Krebs, whose first interview since being fired on Twitter by Trump was with 60 Minutes, returns to CBS for Face the Nation.

Operation Warp Speed Chief Adviser Moncef Slaoui will appear on both Face the Nation and CNN’s State of the Union. Dr. Deborah Birx of the White House coronavirus task force will appear on Meet the Press with Chuck Todd as the pandemic surges in the United States. This week brought a record number of hospitalizations from the virus and the deadliest day yet, with more than 2,800 deaths reported Wednesday.

Republican Senator Mike Braun, of Indiana, will appear on This Week just days after excoriating “the media” in a Washington Examiner op-ed.
