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 Friday,
Jan. 10

• North Korea will consider any U.N. economic sanctions imposed against it to be an act of war, that nation's ambassador to the United Nations said Friday.

Is this simply saber rattling, or are we on the slippery slope to war? We'll have a complete report.

• Former Clinton official and New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson is being tapped by the White House to help broker talks between North Korea and the U.S. in an increasingly tense nuclear arms situation, Bush administration officials confirmed Thursday.

Is Richardson the right man for the job? We'll debate the issue.

• Iraq may have obtained as many as 2,400 electronic "jammers" that could throw America's smart bombs off their programmed path if the U.S. goes to war, Fox News has learned.

Is this a real threat to the effectiveness of our military? We'll investigate.

Be sure to tune into The Big Story with John Gibson ...
weekdays at 5 p.m. ET.
