Topics and guests for Sunday's show.

On Sunday’s Up with Steve Kornacki, we’ll discuss the politics of crime and criminal justice in the wake of Eric Holder’s new sentencing reforms. We’ll also look at the rhetoric of “reaching across the aisle” and examine whether we are entering a post-post-partisan era. Finally, with the passing of journalist Jack Germond, we’ll look at how political reporters have changed over the years
