Juan Williams commands two very different, very prominent public pulpits. Four days a week, he is the host of National Public Radio's "Talk of the Nation," a two-hour sanctuary for thoughtful, sometimes provocative discussion of issues in the public eye. Sundays, he is a pundit on the weekly political talk show "Fox News Sunday," on which he has appeared almost since the first show. (It is celebrating its five-year anniversary this Sunday.) During the week, Williams acts as the reasonable arbiter, led by common sense to tease out greater truths.

There is no shortage of big political stories in the midterm election season that includes Tuesday night's Maryland primary. Will control of Congress shift from Democrats to Republicans? How many statehouses will change hands? But there are also some large media stories involving the TV journalists who will be bringing election news to millions of viewers. And one of the biggest involves Bret Baier, anchor of the nightly Fox News program "Special Report with Bret Baier. " Baier steps up this fall as lead political news anchor on Election Night replacing Brit Hume, who moved after the 2008 elections to the role of senior political analyst.

WASHINGTON - Brit Hume has the Voice. Perhaps you've heard it before. Deep and unwavering, at once assuring and assured, it instantly conveys authority. The Voice is one you might secretly long to hear from an airline pilot or surgeon. Hume is the chief Washington anchor for Fox News Channel, a calming presence for the cheeky ratings king of cable television news - a grown-up among fraternity boys. Unlike Fox News anchor Shepard Smith, Hume is unlikely to blurt out a coarse sexual term on the air or bump his car into a woman over a parking dispute.

When Dick Cheney blasted his pal with birdshot on the Quail Hunt from Hell, he became one of the latest public figures to screw up while trying to contain a scandal. In fact, the vice president's actions following the accidental shooting of poor old Harry Whittington should be studied by every high-profile politician, Hollywood celebrity, Fortune 500 CEO and superstar athlete as the way not to act after you're caught doing something incredibly stupid and embarrassing. Why, the veep blew it so badly he might be responsible for a new phrase entering the lexicon of scandal spinmeisters: Don't pull a Cheney.

Obnoxious, pontificating jerk." "Self-absorbed, condescending imbecile." "Ivy League intellectual Lilliputian." These were among the choice phrases deployed by Fox News Channel's Neil Cavuto Friday to rebut criticism that the anchor had abandoned objectivity for overt nationalism on the air. The complaint was made in a letter written to the network by a journalism professor who Cavuto didn't further identify. "There is nothing wrong with taking sides here, professor," Cavuto said during his show.

Television news coverage of the invasion of Iraq was surprisingly even-handed, according to a study to be released today by the Center for Media and Public Affairs. Researchers for the Washington think tank surveyed more than 1,100 reports on the evening newscasts of record for the big three networks - ABC, CBS and NBC - plus Fox News' Special Report with Brit Hume. Taken together, the three old-line networks broadcast an even split of comments favorable and opposed to U.S. policies or conduct, according to the center.
