geJoin 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.
• Rep. Tom DeLay on felony charges of violating state election and money laundering laws. The judge will hear motions to dismiss the case against DeLay. Mike Emanuel has a report.
• And Bret Baier will have an interview with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Peter Pace about the state of the war in Iraq. What does the general think about a timeline for U.S. troops to withdraw?
• And, "dirty bomb" suspect Jose Padilla has been indicted by a Miami federal grand jury on criminal charges that he conspired to "murder, kidnap and maim" people overseas. Catherine Herridge has a report.
• Plus, tax legislation passed last week includes a provision for a tax rule change that will essentially tax oil companies more for one year. FNC correspondent Major Garrett explains how the provision really works.
• Also, senior Washington correspondent Jim Angle sits down with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to talk about Iraq and other foreign policy issues.
• And with nearly $30 billion dollars set aside for reconstruction projects in Iraq, Reena Ninan reports it has become the largest U.S. foreign aid project since the Marshall Plan.
• Then, with an estimated three-quarter of its population under age 35, Iran has one of the youngest populations of any country. This may bode well for future relations between Iran and the U.S., because as FOX News correspondent Amy Kellogg reports, in the second of her series this week, younger Iranians appear more open-minded toward the West than the country's rulers.
Real journalism: fair and balanced. That's why we're No. 1 — FOX News Channel.
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!
