Former Fox News chief White House correspondent Bret Baier hosts this live weeknight newscast that places an emphasis on political stories from Washington, D.C.
"Face the Nation, " which is one of the longest-running news programs on the air, offers insight and analysis on the top issues of the day. Moderator Margaret Brennan welcomes politicians, government leaders and international newsmakers to a roundtable discussion of current events with CBS News correspondents.
For almost as long as there has been television, there's been "Meet the Press." The hourlong Sunday morning public affairs program has featured interviews with countless U.S. and world leaders, and has reviewed, analyzed and discussed the news of the week -- all while looking toward the week ahead.
Former Clinton White House staffer and current co-anchor of ABC's weekday morning news show "Good Morning America," George Stephanopoulos offers a look at current events with a focus on the politics of the day. Each week's show includes interviews with top newsmakers (including some of the nation's top political leaders) as well as a roundtable discussion, usually featuring journalists from ABC and other news organizations, of the week's happenings. Since 2008, the program has broadcast from a studio at the Newseum in Washington, D.C.
Conservative pundit Bill O'Reilly takes a forceful and often combative stance as he talks with newsmakers and entertainers from his "no-spin zone." Among regular segments featured on the show are Talking Points Memo and Factor Mail, the latter featuring comments from viewers.
Every weeknight from MSNBC's Washington, D.C. studio, author and veteran journalist Chris Matthews hosts a spirited hour of political analysis and debate that includes interviews with prominent politicians, newsmakers and cultural icons. The show provides inside-the-Beltway access and highlights Matthews' keen political insight gained from many years of both working in and covering American politics. Matthews asks his guests the tough questions, and never backs down, in a relentless pursuit of the truth. The final segment of the show, "Let Me Finish," is recognized for showcasing Matthews' personalized take on a significant news story of the day, which is delivered in his unique, signature style.
Veteran journalist Howard Kurtz is no stranger to criticizing the media. He did it for 20 years as a media columnist for The Washington Post and as host of CNN's long-running "Reliable Sources" from 1998 through the first half of 2013. So it's no surprise that shortly after departing CNN in mid-2013 for rival Fox News Channel he would premiere a show for his new employer that is modeled after his previous program. In addition to Kurtz and his weekly panel discussing how the press covers a variety of topics that include technology, social media, politics and sports, the host also interviews some of the country's top journalists. And, as you might expect in these social mediacentric times, "MediaBuzz" features some viewers' questions and comments on the show.
Saturday early risers get a chance to experience their own news, information and entertainment that "FOX and Friends" viewers get during the week with this weekend version of the show, currently hosted by Clayton Morris, Anna Kooiman and Tucker Carlson. In addition to reporting and discussion of the latest news, the show features weather forecasts to help viewers plan their weekend activities.
