People who fled coastal towns in Texas and Louisiana in preparation for Hurricane Rita (search) were returning to their homes Monday as some New Orleans residents were told to come back and help rebuild those parts of the Crescent City that weren't under water. We'll have coverage of the aftermath with live reports from
• Dan Springer in Orange County, Texas
• Mike Emanuel in Cameron Parish, Louisiana
• Steve Brown in Algiers, Louisiana
President Bush is back in Washington today, where he received a briefing at the Department of Energy on the impact the storms have had on the nation's energy production. Wendell Goler has the details.
Then, correspondent Jonathan Serrie will tell us about efforts by the U.S. military to help victims of Hurricane Rita from aboard the USS Iwo Jima (search).
And what can lawmakers in Washington cut to pay for the reconstruction and all costs associated with Katrina and now, Rita? Major Garrett takes a look.
Plus, Senate Major Leader Bill Frist (search) is facing inquiries into his stock sales by the Justice Department and Securities and Exchange Commission that threaten to undermine him politically and provide Democrats fresh ammunition with which to question their opponents' ethics. Brian Wilson has a report.
Then, Jim Angle takes a look at the anti-war protests from the weekend, as an estimated 100,000 people demonstrated in the nation's capital, the climax to a protest that began when Cindy Sheehan (search) camped out in a ditch outside the president's ranch in Crawford, Texas.
Residents of New London, Connecticut (search), which was the subject of a Supreme Court ruling on eminent domain, have gotten their eviction notices. In an interesting twist the mayor and town council say this was a mistake and that they are trying to work out differences with landowners amicably. Rebecca Gomez will have more on the fight over land.
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.
