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 reports from correspondent Heather Nauert.

Topics and Guests:

Monday Teresa Heinz Kerry (search) got herself into a bit of trouble after she told a reporter to, "shove it." Now, as candidate Kerry's wife steps in the spotlight as the Democratic National Convention's main speaker, some of her past remarks are coming back to haunt the campaign.

Will Teresa Heinz Kerry's speech help, or hurt her husband’s run for the White House? We’ll ask Democratic strategist Bob Beckel and former Rep. J.C. Watts, R-Okla.

Plus, we’ll get some observations on the convention’s progress from Rev. Jesse Jackson, former presidential candidate and founder and president of the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition.

And, how is the GOP responding to the charges made by the Democrats’ heavy-hitters? We’ll be joined by Sen. Norm Coleman, R-Minn.

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