Stephen F. Hayes

Stephen F. Hayes is a senior writer at The Weekly Standard and a FOX News contributor, where he is a regular member of the "FOX News All-Stars" on the network's signature news broadcast, Special Report with Bret Baier.

Hayes is the author of two New York Times best sellers: The Connection: How al Qaeda's Collaboration with Saddam Hussein Has Endangered America and Cheney: The Untold Story of America's Most Powerful and Controversial Vice President.

His work has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, The New York Times, The Los Angeles Times, Reason, National Review and many other publications. Hayes has written extensively about national politics, international affairs and the country's current political leadership. He was the first to report that Mitt Romney was preparing to select Paul Ryan as his running-mate and broke a series of stories related to the attacks on US facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

Syndicated columnist Charles Krauthammer said of Hayes' work on Benghazi: "if it doesn't win the National Magazine Award, the award ought to be repealed." The late Robert Novak called Hayes a must-read reporter on Washington and national affairs.

Before joining FOX, Hayes was part of CNN's "Best Political Team on Television," which won a Peabody Award for its coverage of the 2008 elections. Other media appearances have included: NPR's "Talk of the Nation," Today, Good Morning America, Meet the Press, ABC's "This Week," FOX News Sunday, CNN's State of the Union, The O'Reilly Factor, Hannity, The McLaughlin Group, HBO's "Real Time with Bill Maher" and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Hayes is a native of Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, and a graduate of DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana. He studied Public Policy at Georgetown University and received his Master of Science degree from Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism. He previously worked as a senior writer at National Journal's "Hotline" and as director of the Institute on Political Journalism at Georgetown University.

  • The Political Landscape in Washington - Barack Obama won reelection. Republicans have gained control of Congress. The result? Gridlock. Can President Obama work with Congress -- or will he attempt to work around it? Can gridlock be good? What do the battles on Capitol Hill reveal about the political fortunes of the two major political parties? What about the recent elections? What does the issue environment tell us about the race for the White House in 2016? Hayes answers these questions with the detailed knowledge of a political scientist and the on-the-trail experience of a veteran campaign reporter. His presentation provides an up-to-the-minute report on the issues and players of our political system.

  • US National Security in the Age of Obama - President Obama has declared the effective end of The War on Terror and insists that al Qaeda is "on the path to defeat." Yet Americans wake almost daily to news reports about continuing threats and al Qaeda and its affiliates are growing. The Arab spring has a troubled region roiling and old adversaries across the globe are presenting new challenges. As President Obama pledges to engage in nation-building back here at home will the world cooperate with his desire to pull back? What is the legacy of the Obama administration's "smart diplomacy?" What is the Obama Doctrine and what are its results? And what new challenges lie ahead? With the keen eye of a reporter who has filed stories from Iraq, Afghanistan, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and numerous European capitals, Hayes brings knowledge and experience to his presentation on international affairs and US national security.
