Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.

Friday, April 1:

Team FOX goes around the world giving you the people, places and politics you need to know — only on “Special Report.”

Pope John Paul II's (search) health is failing, we'll bring you updates on his condition, plus we'll look at U.S. reaction from President Bush, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, and Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

We’ll also talk with William Kerr, Director of the Pope John Paul II Cultural Center and Monsignor Francis Maloney, Professor at The Catholic University of America.

Plus, Sandy Berger (search), formerly the top national security aide to President Clinton, plead guilty to taking classified documents from the National Archives, according to the Justice Department. We'll have a report on the details of the plea deal on tonight's "Special Report."

And, while Schiavo supporters are pushing for new legislation, Washington can't keep its distance. A recent survey showed 63 percent of Americans support removal of Schiavo's feeding tube and 70 percent think Congress' intervention was inappropriate, but politicians could not stay out of the Schiavo controversy. Major Garrett takes a look at what legislation is out there and what new laws are likely to come from this case.

We'll also talk with our all-star panel of FOX News contributors about the political news of the day:

Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard

Mort Kondracke, executive editor of Roll Call

Charles Krauthammer, syndicated columnist

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 sound 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.

And more people watch FNC's Primetime than all of the cable news competition combined!
