Fair, Balanced & Unafraid: FNC Celebrates 10 Years of Bret Baier Anchoring 'Special Report'
A look back at a decade of memorable moments and key interviews.
Saturday marks ten years since Chief Political Anchor Bret Baier took the reins of "Special Report" from Fox News analyst Brit Hume.
On Friday's "Special Report," Baier marked the occasion by playing a surprise montage created by his staff featuring the past decade's best moments.
Throughout the week, several Fox News colleagues as well as friends of the program like House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.), offered their best wishes on the occasion as well.
The montage featured Baier's first evening hosting the program, 2,851 shows after Hume premiered the program in 1998.
"Welcome to Washington, I'm Bret Baier."
In the montage, Baier is seen interviewing President Trump about "killer" Kim Jong Un, and grilling President Obama on ObamaCare.
"You guaranteed that they're going to be able to keep their doctor," he said.
Hume said in the piece that Baier masterfully balances "the task of being interesting and being fair."
Later, the package features a clip from contentious interviews with now-Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Hillary Clinton, as well as some world leaders.
"Baier made me sweat," remarks President George W. Bush in one clip, as the Texan has additional makeup applied to his forehead.
It also featured Baier's incredulous response when former Obama NSC spokesman Tommy Vietor addressed him as "dude" during an interview.
"Dude, [Benghazi] was two years ago," Vietor said at the time.
Hume tells the audience during the piece that two of Baier's best moments featured Trump and former FBI Director James Comey.
"Someone's not telling the truth here," Baier said to Comey during his interview.
Baier's 2016 GOP debate question regarding whether each candidate will pledge to support one another should someone else win the nomination went viral when Trump was the only one on the dais to raise his hand to reject the idea.
