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.

Today:

•  It has been two years since the worst terror attacks on American soil shocked the world. Award winning director Ric Burns discusses his three-hour documentary on the World Trade Center (search).

• Democrats reaching for party nomination poke criticism at the president’s speech.  Are their denigrations valid? Should they be so critical of the president’s strategy?

Political analyst Ron Faucheux will join us.

• The recall election in California is swiftly approaching and the element of surprise continues to play a major role. With the day-to-day changes how can the constituents know what polls or pundits to believe?

Bruce Feirstein, a columnist for the NY Observer will shed some light.  

• And Peter Ueberroth will explain why it is imperative to get the ‘gray’ out of California, and why he is the person for the job. 

All of that... and more on The Big Story With John Gibson at 5 p.m. ET.
