North Korea, a poor jobs report and President Obama's budget take front stage this weekend on the Sunday shows. But that doesn't mean long term issues don't have prominent roles. Immigration and gun control still remain hot topics and will be a focus on the shows as well.
Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer is appearing on two of the shows to discuss the disappointing March jobs report as well as Pres. Obama's upcoming budget, which he'll deliver to Congress on April 10.
Former Rep. Asa Hutchinson, R-Ark., who has said that he will be a candidate for the state's open gubernatorial seat next year, will be on Fox News Sunday. This week, Hutchinson released the proposals of the National Rifle Association's school safety initiative, a panel he headed. Hutchinson has said he would not officially announce his candidacy for governor until after he had wrapped up work on the NRA initiative.
Be sure to check out Fox News Sunday's Power Player of the Week: the Washington Post's new Executive Editor Marty Baron. Host Chris Wallace will sit down with Baron to discuss the future of the paper. Baron came over to the Post from the Boston Globe where Wallace started his career.
