This year it's not the U.S. with election problems, it's the Ukraine. We'll have the latest from the contested Ukrainian presidential election run-off between Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych (search ) and opposition leader Viktor Yushchenko (search). Yushchenko had earlier claimed victory in the runoff, even though the election commission declared Yanukovych the winner. The opposition has said the election was rigged. Laurence Lee of our sister network SkyNews reports as some 200-thousand protestors have descended on the capital city.
Meanwhile, there was no election crisis in Florida this year, FNC correspondent Orlando Salinas tells us why Florida officials think things went so well.
And Secretary of Defense Rumsfeld says he supports the president's position on the intelligence reform bill (search) that is being held up in Congress, but some people in the Pentagon are opposing the Bush administration's plan, which would dilute Pentagon power over the intelligence budget. FNC Pentagon correspondent Bret Baier reports.
Who was it that wanted to make it possible for members of Congress see your tax return? Molly Henneberg has the full report after outrage erupted over a small provision in the omnibus appropriations bill (search).
Dan Rather (search) announces that he will step down as the anchor of the CBS Evening News after 24 years. Did the National Guard document scandal force the move? Our all-star panel of FOX News contributors weighs in:
Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard
Juan Williams , senior correspondent at NPR
Jeff Birnbaum, columnist at The Washington Post
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 sounds 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.
