Friday, July 22:
Team FOX goes around the world giving you the people, places and politics you need to know — only on “Special Report.”
President Bush in Atlanta for a speech on Medicare (search) and Social Security (search) reform turns his focus to domestic security saying that we stand with England and won't be frightened by terrorists. Meanwhile the House voted late Thursday to extend indefinitely the USA Patriot Act (search) with limits on two specific provisions. Carl Cameron has the details.
For more on the reauthorization of the Patriot Act, we’ll talk with Georgetown law professor, Viet Dinh, who was also the former assistant attorney general.
And from London, plainclothes police chased a man in a thick coat through a subway station today, wrestled him to the ground and shot him to death in front of stunned commuters. Simon Marks has the latest.
Then, Major Garrett looks at Judge John Roberts (search) record while in the private practice and during his years working for Kenneth Starr.
Also, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (search) arrived in Beirut today for a surprise visit, her first since Syria's troop withdrawal in April from Lebanon in the wake of domestic and U.S.-led international pressure. James Rosen reports.
And, Israeli Defense Forces (search) this week successfully defused demonstrations aimed at reaching Gaza settlements set to be evacuated next month. Does this mark the end or at least the high water mark of attempts to disrupt the process or will supporters of the settlements ratchet up their efforts in response to this setback? Mike Tobin sorts it all out.
Plus, we'll also talk with our all-star panel of FOX News contributors about the day's headlines:
—Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard
—Jeff Birnbaum, columnist for The Washington Post
—Nina Easton, deputy Washington bureau chief for The Boston Globe

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!
