Wednesday, July 6:
Team FOX goes around the world giving you the people, places and politics you need to know — only on “Special Report.”
President Bush has named former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson (search) to help shepherd his yet-to-be named Supreme Court nominee through the Senate. Carl Cameron reports.
Then, efforts to overhaul the immigration system are heating up in Congress, with two Senate plans that differ sharply on how to deal with an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants. Major Garrett looks at the immigration bills making their way through Congress.
Plus, in a hearing for the CIA leak story, Time reporter Matt Cooper (search) tells judge he will comply in case, while New York Times journalist Judith Miller (search) refuses to name source in press freedom case and will head to jail. Megyn Kendall has the details.
And some activists groups say that if the president's Supreme Court (search) nominee is anything like Judges Owen, Pryor and Brown, that they would ignite a firestorm of opposition and probably a filibuster. To what extent is a judge's philosophy a legitimate factor in their confirmation? Jim Angle explores the future of the court.
Also, three days after French President Jacques Chirac (search) made comments about the cuisine in Great Britain, London has prevailed, upsetting Paris to secure the 2012 Olympics. The British capital overcame its cross-Channel opponent 54-50 today on the fourth ballot of the International Olympic Committee vote, capping the most glamorous and hotly contested bid race in Olympic history. James Rosen reports.

Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard
Jeff Birnbaum, columnist for The Washington Post
Bill Sammon, White House correspondent for The Washington Times

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.
