Millions of New Yorkers headed to work under tightened security today, after city officials announced a threat of a terrorist attack on the subway system. While in Washington, Homeland Security (search) officials downplayed the seriousness of the threat, saying the information received "is of doubtful credibility." Catherine Herridge looks at the contradiction in terms.

President Bush predicted today that Harriet Miers (search) will be confirmed to the Supreme Court despite grumbling from conservatives that has led a few to call for the president to withdraw her nomination. Carl Cameron has a report.

We’ll also talk with Jay Alan Sekulow, the chief counsel for the American Center for Law and Justice about Harriet Miers nomination to the Supreme Court. What kind of scrutiny will Miers face in the weeks ahead?

And the U.S. military is waging two large offensives in western Iraq, Operations "Iron Fist" and "River Gate," in order to oust insurgents from several towns along the Euphrates River valley. Bret Bair has the latest from the Pentagon.

Also, the battle is heating up over proposed legislation that would make it easier to build oil refineries, while stripping away some clean-air protections. Major Garrett has the details from Capitol Hill.

Then, the State Department plays host to an international conference to discuss the avian flu. James Rosen has more. Plus, James will also bring us official U.S. reaction to IAEA chief Mohamed El Baradei (search) being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

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!
