Mr. Hume's starring role, Special Report with Brit Hume, is often under fire from left wing media analysis groups such as FAIR, Fairness and Accuracy In Reporting, as they claim that the show, and to a larger extent, Fox News Channel, is baised towards conservatives, to which Mr. Hume has replied, "I'm a little skeptical of (FAIR's) credibility because it's a very tendentious source. . . . The show's not about me, nor is it about my views." Special Report begain in 1998 as a daily hour-long update to the Lewinsky-Clinton scandal.
