Topics: October 26

Join 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.

• Washington and the White House began the day on pins and needles, awaiting word from the special prosecutor investigating the leak of the name of an undercover CIA operative (search), but that word never came. However, as FOX News chief White House correspondent Carl Cameron reports, that doesn't mean nothing was happening.

• Then, Jim Angle takes a look at the whole CIA leak episode and how it actually began. You may be surprised…

• And how is Supreme Court nominee Harriet Miers (search) handling the public outcry against her nomination? Major Garrett takes a look.

• Also, the United Nations Security Council is trying to decide how to deal with Syria following last week's U.N. report implicating top Syrian officials in the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister Rafik Hariri. James Rosen has a report.

• Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad's harsh rhetoric that Israel should be “wiped off the map” came today, as a suicide bomber killed five people in an attack on a marketplace in Israel. Is Israel's truce with Palestinians since its withdrawal from Gaza (search) starting to come apart? Mike Tobin has analysis of the day’s events in the Middle East.

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!
