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

Tuesday, September 27:

It’s a “Special Report” exclusive — could new outbreaks of violence and Saddam’s looming trial postpone progress in Iraq? General Richard Myers sits down with Brit in an explosive “Special Report.”

Plus, President Bush makes his seventh trip to the Gulf Coast region since Hurricane Katrina hit. He'll see damage from Hurricane Rita (search) as well in Texas and Louisiana where he'll meet with Texas Governor Rick Perry and later, with Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco. Wendell Goler has a report.

As gas prices continue to rise, several senators are calling on the Senate Commerce Committee to investigate complaints of gas price gouging. How do gas stations set the price we'll pay at the pump? Major Garrett takes a look.

Then, former FEMA director Michael Brown (search), appearing on Capitol Hill, aggressively defended his role in responding to Hurricane Katrina and put much of the blame for coordination failures on Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco and New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin. Brian Wilson has the details from his testimony.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is in Haiti for a one-day visit aimed at showing U.S. support for November elections in the violent, poor Caribbean country. James Rosen is traveling with the secretary and files a report.

It remains to be seen what kind of impact the death of Zarqawi's No. 2 man will have on the insurgency, but some U.S. military commanders say it shows that progress is being made in dismantling the Al Qaeda (search) network in Iraq. Steve Centanni will have more.

And nearly 250 police officers in New Orleans, roughly 15 percent of the force, could face a special tribunal because they left their posts without permission during Hurricane Katrina (search) and the storm's chaotic aftermath. Steve Brown has the latest from New Orleans.

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 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!
