Bret Baier Hunts For Big Newsmakers To Bolster Fox News’ ‘Special Report’

Bret Baier is trying a few new maneuvers at Special Report, one of the longest-running programs at Fox News Channel. About six months ago, he says, he talked to his staff about getting more ambitious. “We had a talk about what the show should look like,” he recalls. “Most days, you take singles and doubles and you cover the news and you do it as best you can, but the occasional triple and home run sometimes lend themselves to other big plays.”

Televised Fox News Speaker Forum With Bret Baier Called Off

Plans for a televised Fox News forum with three contenders for House Speaker fell apart soon after they were announced.

But the unusual move — nationalizing an internal GOP conference decision — prompted backlash from GOP members, and changes to the plans.

Bret Baier Searches For ‘Common Ground’ In New Fox News Podcast

Why Bret Baier Thinks There’s A ‘Hunger’ For “Finding Common Ground” In New Debate Series

On Monday, the Fox Nation streaming service will host a televised debate between Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in a replica of the Senate Chamber hosted at the Kennedy Institute. The debate isn’t about an election. Neither Graham nor Sanders are up this year. Rather, it’s about trying to bring sincere, old-school debates back into style at a time when social media and cable news chyrons are king. The Senate Project, as it’s being called, is a byproduct of the Institute, as well as the Orrin G. Hatch Foundation and the Bipartisan Policy Center. Two other debates are already scheduled, with the next set to be hosted by C-SPAN.
