Topics and Guests for Tuesday, August 6

Veteran newscaster John Gibson gets to the core of the most salient issues facing America today as host of FNC's hard-hitting primetime show The Big Story with John Gibson, airing Monday through Friday at 5 p.m. ET, with expert legal analysis from Judge Andrew Napolitano and in-depth field reports from correspondent Heather Nauert.

Topics and Guests for Tuesday, August 6

•   Keep your friends close... and your enemies closer? Washington may think Saudi Arabia is one of its strongest allies, but a new report says the Saudis sponsor terrorism at every level. We'll talk to former Secretary of State Lawrence Eagleburger about the validity of these charges, and the ensuing fallout.

•   School vouchers are giving parents a choice in educating their kids, but one circuit court judge in Florida disagrees with that, saying state money should not be used to pay for students to attend private schools because it is a violation of Florida's constitution. Gov. Jeb Bush's reaction? The state is filing an appeal. FNC senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano will break down the legal arguments on both sides.

•   Who did you call last month, and how many times? Under new FCC rules, your phone company can share that information without getting the okay from you first. FNC correspondent Heather Nauert will have the full story. It's a report you don't want to miss...

•   The USS Monitor revolutionized naval warfare when it defeated the Confederate ship Virginia. Now... for the first time since the Monitor sank 140 years ago in a story, we can actually see its swiveling turret above water. Naval Historian James Tertius, author of  Monitor: The Story of the Legendary Civil War Ironclad and the Man Whose Invention Changed the Course of History, will join us to discuss.

Other Guests Include:

•   Adam Buckman, reporter for the New York Post
