Topics and Guests, October 26

Join host Brit Hume and FOX's Team Washington weekdays at 6 p.m. ET for "Special Report" — Find out what's happening inside the Beltway and on the world stage.

Tuesday, Oct. 26:

With just one week to go, both candidates began their campaigning Tuesday in the swing state of Wisconsin (search).

President Bush (search) tackled the economy touting his tax cuts as a way to boost the economy and attacking Kerry, claiming he would raise taxes. Bush ends the day rallying voters in Iowa (search), while Kerry steps it up with visits to four key states continuing his attacks on Bush for misleading the nation into the war in Iraq. After Wisconsin, Kerry travels to Nevada, New Mexico and Iowa. 

Tune in to "Special Report" for the latest in campaign news as FOX News Channel’s You Decide team follows the candidates on the final stretch of the campaign.

Plus, Brit will talk to FOX News correspondent Dana Lewis who was embedded with the 101st Airborne (working for NBC News at the time), when they arrived at the Al-Qaqaa (search) weapons installation on April 10, 2003.   The 101st Airborne conducted a "cursory search" of the premises, and found a great deal of conventional ordnance, but did not come across any RDX (search) or HMX (search). So when did these explosives go missing? Before the war or more recently?

Plus, analysis on the missing explosives and the media's coverage of it from our all-star panel of pundits and FOX News contributors:

• National Public Radio's Mara Liasson

• Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer

• "Roll Call" Executive Editor and co-host of FNC's "The Beltway Boys" Mort Kondrake

About the Show

Anchored by Washington news veteran Brit Hume, "Special Report with Brit Hume" provides an in-depth look at the day's news and offers a daily topical discussion of political issues impacting the nation.

Hume serves as host to key newsmakers, political pundits and FOX News contributors exchanging views about political matters from taxes and Social Security to international affairs and the political scandal of the day.

Hume brings a historical perspective to the political scene that is rarely rivaled. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., he has covered the policies, procedures and players in the national game called politics for more than 30 years. The Baltimore Sun referred to him as "the very personification of the political establishment."

Each program features a two-minute segment called The Grapevine, which reels off the latest outrageous news nuggets, political poll results and in-the-Beltway gossip that viewers will not see on any other news program. The New York Daily News describes The Grapevine as a must see that, "will make you sounds smart around the water cooler… the next day."

FOX News' Team Washington provides live reports from the White House, Capitol Hill, the Supreme Court and key federal agencies. Seasoned correspondents, including Carl Cameron, Wendell Goler and Major Garrett, explore political hot spots, races and legislative battles being waged around the nation and abroad.

Hume wraps up each program with a lively roundtable discussion featuring Mara Liasson of National Public Radio, Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard and Mort Kondracke of Roll Call.
