Tuesday, September 6:

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

President Bush says he'll lead an investigation into what went wrong and why as the federal government responded to Hurricane Katrina (search). After days of complaints that the government was too slow, Mr. Bush has filled his days with public appearances related to Katrina. Carl Cameron has the details.

Then, when it comes to how the federal government responded to hurricane Katrina, Senator Patrick Leahy (search) is very upset, as are many lawmakers on Capitol Hill. Brian Wilson has a report.

And what went wrong? Who was in charge and what decisions did they or did they not make to secure the safety of hundreds of thousands of people in the wake of Katrina? Major Garrett takes a look.

Plus, one school in Baton Rouge, Louisiana is getting to work and they have 50 new students from other hurricane-damaged areas to make feel at home. Molly Henneberg reports.

With a major levee break finally plugged, engineers struggled to pump out the flooded city Tuesday as authorities braced for the horrors the receding water would reveal. David Lee Miller has more from New Orleans.

A plan to move some Hurricane Katrina (search) evacuees from the Houston Astrodome to cruise ships was postponed today because many didn't want to go. The Astrodome is working so well as a shelter, there is a movement to make it the staging center for all evacuees. Alicia Acuna has more.

Also, teary-eyed Supreme Court justices and a long line of other Americans paid their last respects to William Rehnquist (search) today at the court where he served for 33 years. Among the pallbearers was his former clerk, John Roberts, the man chosen to succeed the nation's 16th chief justice. Jim Angle reports.

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

—Mara Liasson, national political correspondent for NPR

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!
