I would like to take a CNN, FOX News, etc Live Video and stream it on my website?

Is there a way to piggyback, hijack or re-route this video for use on my website? Tutorials, websites or YouTube Instructionals would be great!

You're looking for major copyright trouble. Network video news footage is typically licensed for roughly $100/second, with various minimum usage fees. I don't know what they'd get for penalties.

VLC, free, open-source software.

You can use the savings to pay your lawyer.

VLC builds on top of ffmpeg. It's basically a video viewer which supports a large number of formats, but has many other uses. One of them is the ability to take an incoming video stream and split it n-ways while potentially changing format.

For example, you could take an incoming H.264 stream, send a copy to disk in AVI format, a stream to a media server in MPEG3, another stream to a different media server in 3GPP, etc. etc.

It's a viewer with a built-in Swiss Army Knife for video streams.

Why not visit the website or Wikipedia and read up on it?

But, as others have pointed out, unless you are in a country that doesn't recognize international copyrights, this is begging for legal trouble.
