Wednesday, March 30:
Team FOX goes around the world giving you the people, places and politics you need to know — only on “Special Report.”
President Bush (search) makes his case for Social Security reform in Iowa. The president insists public opinion is leaning his way, yet says there might be a political price for members of Congress to pay if the system is not fixed now. Wendell Goler has the details.
The AARP (search) is spending more than five million dollars this month in an effort to counteract the President's Social Security privatization push. AARP argues that there is no need to dismantle the entire system with private accounts when all that is needed to fix the system is a few moderate changes. Jim Angle has a report.
For more on the Social Security debate, Brit Hume talks with Fox News contributor and columnist Jeff Birnbaum (search), whose front-page story in today's Washington Post details the AARP’s efforts to keep the White House on the ropes.
Plus, Brian Wilson takes a look at the newly unveiled television ads from the Campaign for America's Future (search) that question Representative Tom Delay's ethics.
And Major Garrett covers the latest from the legal front of the Terri Schiavo (search) case.
We'll also talk with our all-star panel of FOX News contributors about the political news of the day:
Fred Barnes, executive editor of The Weekly Standard
Mort Kondracke, executive editor of Roll Coll
Mara Liasson, national political reporter for National Public Radio
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.
