Team FOX goes around the world giving you the people, places and politics you need to know — only on “Special Report.”
The mound of documents relating to Supreme Court nominee John Roberts (search) continues to grow. And so, too, have the demands from groups that oppose the nomination. Today, one liberal group said Roberts should be rejected, if more documents aren't released. Fox News Chief Washington Correspondent Jim Angle reports.
While those newly released documents offer insight into the positions held by President Bush's Supreme Court (search) nominee, it seems Democrats still haven't found what they're looking for. So what exactly is it that they're after? Fox News Correspondent Megyn Kendall takes a look.
Al Qaeda (search) claims responsibility for a rocket attack in Jordan targeting U.S. Navy ships. Bret Baer has the details.
Then, resistance continues in Gaza (search), but Israeli soldiers are still ahead of schedule to clear the area of settlers and their supporters. Mike Tobin reports after another day of forced evacuations.
And gas prices keep going up. Should you be worried? We’ll talk about what's ahead with Jerry Taylor, the director of natural resources for the Cato Institute.
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
—Bill Sammon, White House correspondent for The Washington Times
—Ceci Connolly, national correspondent for The Washington Post
Don’t miss tonight’s “Special Report with Brit Hume.”
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!
