I'M CAITLIN BURKE.

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

SAYS THE SLAUGHTER OF

CHRISTIANS AND OTHER

RELIGIOUS MINORITIES BY

ISIS IS TANTAMOUNT TO

GENOCIDE.

MEMBERS OF PARLIAMENT

PASSED A RESOLUTION THIS

WEEK, CALLING THE AT

ATROCITIES CRIMES AGAINST

HUMANITY, AND CALLING FOR

AN INVESTIGATION OF THEIR

HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES.

GEORGE THOMAS HAS MORE.

George: MEMBERS OF

THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT

SAY THAT WHAT THE ISLAMIC

TERROR GROUP ISIS IS DOING

TO CHRISTIANS AND OTHER

RELIGIOUS MINORITIES IN

SYRIA AND IRAQ AMOUNTS TO

WAR CRIMES AND GENOCIDE.

IT'S VERY IMPORTANT TO

CALL IT GENOCIDE.

IT'S IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT

IS THE TRUTH.

George: NINA SHAY IS

WITH FREEDOM HOUSE, AND

HER GROUP HAS BEEN

DOCUMENTING ISIS

ATROCITIES.

AND THE ISIS-CONTROLLED

TERRITORY, THERE IS NO

EVIDENCE RIGHT NOW OF ANY

CHRISTIAN LIFE.

ALL OF THE CHRISTIANS HAVE

EITHER BEEN KILLED OR

DRIVEN OUT.

THE YAZIDIS, THOUSAND OF

THEIR WOMEN ARE SEX

SLAVES.

George: THE

RESOLUTION SAYS THOSE WHO

INTENTIONALLY COMMIT

VIOLENCE FOR RELIGIOUS OR

ETHNIC REASONS MUST BE

CHARGED WITH CRIME AGAINST

HUMANITY.

IF WE TAKE THE SOLEMN

VOW OF "NEVER AGAIN," AS

WITH THE NAZIS, WE HAVE TO

CALL IT AS SUCH FOR THE

CHRISTIANS.

George: FORMER

CONGRESSMAN FRANK WOLF WHO

HAS FOR DECADES GIVEN

VOICE TO PERSECUTED

CHRISTIANS AROUND THE

WORLD WELCOMED THE VOTE,

AND SAYS IT FINALLY

RECOGNIZE THE PAIN AND

SUFFERING OF THOSE LIVING

UNDER CONSTANT ISIS

THREAT.

TO CALL IT GENOCIDE, IT

IS SO WE REMEMBER.

George: THE PLIGHT OF

MIDDLE EAST CHRISTIANS IS

SOBERING.

IN SYRIA, THE NUMBER OF

BELIEVERS HAS PLUMMETTED

TO 1.2 MILLION TO LESS

THAN 500,000, AND IN IRAQ,

NEARLY TWO-THIRDS OF THAT

COUNTRIES 2.5 MILLION

CHRISTIANS HAVE EITHER

BEEN KILLED OR FORCED TO

FLEE BY ISIS.

SHAY IS NOW CALLING ON THE

WHITEHOUSE TO CALL THE

EUROPEAN EXAMPLE AND LABEL

WHAT IS HAPPENING TO THE

CHRISTIANS IN THE MIDDLE MIDDLE

GENOCIDE.

THEY HAVE TOLD US THEY

WILL CALL THE GENOCIDE

AGAINST THE YAZIDIS, BUT

NOT THE CHRISTIANS.

George: ON THE OTHER

HAND, HILLARY CLINTON HAS

ALREADY SAID THAT ISIS IS

COMMITTING GENOCIDE.

DURING A NEW HAMPSHIRE

TOWNHALL IN LATE DECEMBER,

CLINTON SAYS SHE WAS

INITIALLY RELUCTANT TO USE

THE WORD SINCE IT REQUIRES

COUNTRIES TO TAKE SPECIFIC

ACTION TO TOP THE

GENOCIDE.

NOW SHE IS CONVINCED

OTHERWISE.

I'M SURE NOW WE HAVE

ENOUGH EVIDENCE.

WHAT IS HAPPENING IS

GENOCIDE, DELIBERATELY

AIMED AT DESTROYING NOT

ONLY THE LIVES BUT WIPING

OUT THE EXISTENCE OF

CHRISTIANS AND OTHER

RELIGIOUS MINORITIES IN

THE MIDDLE EAST, IN

TERRITORY CONTROLLED BY

ISIS.

George: THE EUROPEAN

PARLIAMENT RESOLUTION

CALLS ON THE INTERNATIONAL

CRIMINAL COURT TO BEGIN

INVESTIGATING VIOLATIONS

BY ISIS AGAINST

CHRISTIANS, THE YAZIDIS,

AND OTHER RELIGIOUS

MINORITIES.

GEORGE THOMAS, CBN NEWS.

Reporter: DEMOCRATIC

CANDIDATES HILLARY CLINTON

AND BERNIE SANDERS CLASHED

LAST NIGHT IN AN IMPORTANT

DEBATE BEFORE THE NEW

HAMPSHIRE PRIMARIES.

THE TWO BECAME HEATED AS

THEY FOUGHT THE CONVINCE

VOTERS WHO THE BEST

NOMINATION WOULD BE.

I THINK IT IS TIME TO

END THE VERY ARTFUL SMEAR

THAT YOU AND YOUR CAMPAIGN

HAVE BEEN CARRYING OUT.

SECRETARY CLINTON DOES

REPRESENT THE

ESTABLISHMENT.

I REPRESENT, I HOPE,

ORDINARY AMERICANS.

Caitlin: THE

REPUBLICAN CANDIDATES HOLD

THEIR DEBATE ON SATURDAY

NIGHT.

THE VOTING TAKES PLACE ON

TUESDAY.

> THE U.S. HAS FALLEN

OUT OF THE TOP 10

COUNTRIES OF THE WORLD IN

TERMS OF ECONOMIC FREEDOM.

THAT'S ACCORDING TO THE

LATEST INDEX OF ECONOMIC

FREEDOM, WHICH IS

PUBLISHED EACH YEAR BY THE

HERITAGE FOUNDATION.

THE U.S. CAME IN AT NUMBER

11 THIS YEAR, ITS WORST

SHOWING EVER.

WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA TOOK

OFFICE IN 2009, THE U.S.

WAS AT NUMBER SIX.

CRITICS SAY THE EXPLODING

NATIONAL DEBT AND

RESTRICTIONS HAVE TIED

DOWN THE ECONOMY.

> THESE YEAR AS NATIONAL

PRAYER BREAKFAST BROUGHT

SIGNS OF HUMOR AND EVEN

SOME UNITY IN OUR NATION'S

CAPITAL.

Reporter: WHEN

CO-CHAIR OF THE SENATE'S

WEEKLY CHAIR MEETING

TALKED ABOUT ARRIVING IN

WASHINGTON...

WHEN I CAME TO THE

SENATE, WITHIN NINE MONTHS

THE UNITED STATES SHUT

DOWN.

BECAUSE I'M CATHOLIC, I

WAS TEMPTED TO BLAME

MYSELF.

Reporter: BUT WHEN

THE CO-CHAIR OF THE HOUSE

REMEMBER ASKING A FELLOW

STUDENT WHO WAS REALLY

SMART AT THEIR LAW

SCHOOL --

AND HE SAID, THIS GUY

NAMED BARACK OBAMA.

HE IS REALLY, REALLY

SMART.

AND HE MAY EVEN BECOME A

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SOME

DAY.

SO THERE IS STILL TIME,

MR. PRESIDENT.

THERE IS STILL TIME.

YOU'RE A YOUNG MAN.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

OBAMA HIMSELF CAUSED

CHUCKLE.

I HAVE ALWAYS FELT A

TINGE OF GUILT,

MOTORCADEING UP HERE AT

THE HEART OF D.C.'S

RUSH-HOUR.

I SUSPECT THAT NOT ALL OF

THE COMMUTERS WERE

BLESSING ME.

Reporter: BUT THIS

PRAYER SESSION COULD BE

TOUCHING AND INSPIRING,

LIKE WHEN THE OTHER

CO-CHAIR TALKED ABOUT HIS

FELLOW LEADER AND THE

LORD.

HE IS A PROGRESS

DEMOCRAT, AND I'M A VOTING

REPUBLICAN, AND OUR VOTING

RECORDS ARE PROBABLY ABOUT

AS SIMILAR AS OUR HAIR

CELLS.

BUT I LOVE HIM.

AND I KNOW HE LOVES ME

BECAUSE WE SHARE A COMMON

FRIEND, JESUS.

WITH MAKE TIME TO COME

TOGETHER EVERY WEEK AND

PRAY.

COULD YOU DO THAT IN YOUR

CITY, YOUR WORKPLACE, YOUR

MISSION IN LIFE?

IF WE CAN DO IT, WHY CAN'T

YOU.

WHEN PEOPLE SAY WE'RE

PRAYING FOR SOMEONE OR

SOMETHING, THE ATTITUDE IN

SOME QUARTERS THESE DAYS

IS, DON'T JUST PRAY; DO

SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

THE THING IS, WHEN YOU ARE

PRAYING, YOU ARE DOING

SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

LET US REMEMBER THAT

EACH OF US IS BELOVED

EQUAL IN THE EYES OF OUR

LORD.

AND LET'S US SERVE AS

INSTRUMENTS THAT SPREAD

YOUR MERCY TO OUR BROTHERS

AND OUR SISTERS.

FATHER, WE ASK THAT YOU

WATCH OVER OUR PRESIDENT,

BARACK OBAMA, AS

8888

President Obama: WE

PRAY FOR GOD'S PROTECTION

FOR ALL THOSE WHO ARE NOT

ABLE TO PRAY FREELY.

Reporter: AND HE

TALKED ABOUT THE ANTEDOTES

TO FEAR.

President Obama:

FAITH IS THE GREAT CURE

FOR FEAR.

Reporter: PAUL

STRAND, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Caitlin: FLORIDA'S

GOVERNOR SAYS FIVE

COUNTIES ARE NOW FACING A

HEALTH EMERGENCY FROM THE

ZIKA VIRUS.

THREE NEW CASES HAVE BEEN

REPORTED, BRINGING THAT

TOTAL UP TO 12 IN THIS

STATE.

GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT SAID

ALL OF THE CASES ARE FROM

PEOPLE WHO BECAME INFECTED

AFTER TRAVELLING TO OTHER

COUNTRIES.

BUT THERE IS STILL CONCERN

IT COULD SPREAD INSIDE THE

U.S.

THE ZIKA VIRUS IN

COMMON IN FLORIDA.

AND THAT'S WHY THE

EXECUTIVE ORDER I SIGNED

LAST NIGHT GIVES SPECIAL

ATTENTION FOR MOSQUITO

SPRAYS, AND IT SHOULD BE

IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS.

Reporter: FLORIDA'S

WARM CLIMATE AND REVOLVING

DOOR OF INTERNATIONAL

TRAVELLERS MAKES IT

ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE.

BUT THE GOVERNOR SAYS THEY

ARE PREPARING LIKE A

HURRICANE, TELLING

RESIDENTS AND TOURISTS,

FLORIDA IS SAFE.

> MORE THAN 200,000

GIRLS FACE GENITAL

MUTILATION.

THIS HIGHLIGHTS THE NEED

TO MOVE FORWARD WITH

METHODS TO END THE

PRACTICE.

AND UNICEF SAYS IF CURRENT

TRENDS CONTINUE, IT WILL

INCREASE CONSIDERABLY OVER

THE NEXT FEW YEARS.

THE PRACTICE IS MOSTLY

COMMON IN CERTAIN MUSLIM

COMMUNITIES.

IT CAN BE LIFE-THREATENING

FOR GIRLS AND WOMEN.

IN SOME CASES, THEY CAN

BLEED TO DEATH OR DIE FROM

INFECTION.

> COMING UP, NOT ENOUGH

WOMEN, HOW DECADES OF

CHINA'S HARSH ONE-CHILD

POLICY IS NOW THREATENING

TO UNDER MINE THE

COUNTRY'S FUTURE.

Caitlin: A JEWISH

GROUP PROMOTING A TYPE OF

GAY REVERSION HAS MOVED TO

ISRAEL.

ISRAELI HEALTH

PRACTITIONERS SAY THEIR

SERVICE IS IN HIGH DEMAND.

THEY SAY SOME ORTHODOX

JEWISH MEN FIGHT SAME-SEX

ATTRACTIONS AND WANT TO BE

FREE OF IT SO THEY CAN

RAISE TRADITIONAL

FAMILIES.

ISRAEL'S HEALTH MINISTRY

ADVISES AGAINST REPARATIVE

THERAPY, BUT NO LAW LIMITS

IT.

THE CHINESE NEW YEAR IS

FAST APPROACHING.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN 40

YEARS, CHINA IS ALLOWING

FAMILIES TO GROW BEYOND

ONE CHILD.

BUT THAT GOOD NEWS IS

TEMPERED BY A SAD REALITY.

CHINA'S FUTURE HAS ALREADY

BEEN DAMAGED.

MUNG SALI HAS MORE FROM

BEIJING.

Reporter: CHINA IS

THE WORLD'S SECOND LARGEST

COUNTRY WITH MORE THAN ONE

BILLION PEOPLE.

IT IS ESTIMATED THE NUMBER

MIGHT REACH TWO BILLION BY

2030.

FOR DECADES THE CHINESE

GOVERNMENT TRIED TO

CONTROL THE POPULATION

GROWTH BY LIMITING

FAMILIES TO ONE CHILD.

ITS INITIAL PURPOSE WAS TO

KEEP A BALANCE BETWEEN

MALES AND FEMALES.

BUT BY 2014, THE RATIO

BECAME UNBALANCED WITH 150

MALES FOR EVERY 100

FEMALES.

POPULATION EXPERTS BELIEVE

BY 2030 THERE WON'T BE

ENOUGH WOMEN IN CHINA FOR

MEN TO MARRY, AND THAT

MEANS FEWER CHINESE

FAMILIES.

UNTIL THIS YEAR, THE

SINGLE SINGLE-CHILD POLICY

HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT MORE

THAN 40IARIES.

40 YEARS.

STARTING IN JANUARY 2016,

THE CHINESE FAMILY PASSED

A LAW THAT ALLOWS FAMILIES

TO HAVE TWO CHILDREN

INSTEAD OF ONE.

MANY CHINESE COUPLES ARE

EXCITED ABOUT THE CHANGE.

WITH THE IMMEDIATE CHANGE,

MORE CHINESE COUPLES ARE

GETTING FORWARD TO GETTING

MARRIED AND HAVING BIGGER

FAMILIES.

MEANWHILE, THE GOVERNMENT

OFFICIALS HOPE THE POLICY

CAN GRADUALLY FIX THE

SKEWED RATIO.

LILY ANN WAS MARRIED SIX

YEARS AGO, AND SHE IS

EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW LAW.

IT IS LIKE A DREAM COME

TRUE FOR LILY AND HER

HUSBAND.

Through Translator:

BOTH MY HUSBAND AND I LOVE

CHILDREN.

AND WE THINK HAVING TWO

CHILDREN WILL MAKE ALL OF

OUR PARENTS HAPPY.

I BELIEVE THE VALUE OF

BUILDING A FAMILY IS TO

HAVE MORE CHILDREN.

WHEN THEY GROW UP

TOGETHER, THEY WILL

UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF

SHARING WITH OTHERS IN A

FAMILY.

I DON'T HAVE TO TEACH THEM

MUCH.

Reporter: CHINESE

FAMILY PRIDE MOSTLY COMES

FROM THEIR CHILD'S

SUCCESS.

THE NEW LAW MEANS CHINESE

PARENTS NOW MAY HAVE TO

CHOOSE BETWEEN RAISING TWO

CHILDREN OR KEEPING THEIR

JOBS.

Through Translator:

AND MY VIEW, NO POLICY IS

PERFECT.

IF YOU WANT TO HAVE A

BIGGER FAMILY AND FEED

EVERYONE, YOU HAVE TO MAKE

TOUGH DECISIONS.

HAVE YOU TO KNOW WHICH IS

MORE IMPORTANT, A JOB OR

RAISING THE CHILDREN?

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO

ACCOMPLISH BOTH.

Reporter: NO MATTER

HOW CHALLENGING A LARGER

FAMILY MAY SEEM, CHINESE

PARENTS NOW MAY CHOOSE TO

HAVE MORE ONE CHILD.

THE NEW POLICY IS GIVING

THE CHINESE PEOPLE HOPE

THEY CAN EXPAND THEIR

FAMILIES IN A BIGGER WAY

IN THE FUTURE.

MUNG SALI, FOR CBN NEWS,

BEIJING.

Caitlin: UP NEXT, CAM

NEWT AND PEYTON MANNING

MAY BE ON DIFFERENT TEAMS

IN THIS SUPER BOWL, BULL BUT

THEY'RE STILL GIVING GOD

THEIR GLORY.

Caitlin: IF YOU'RE

LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE, YOU

WON'T BE TUNING IN TO THE

SUPER BOWL THIS SUNDAY

JUST TO WATCH THE GAME.

YOU'LL ALSO BE PAYING

ATTENTION TO THE

COMMERCIALS.

THE ADS HAVE BECOME A BIG

PART OF THE BROADCAST,

WHEN VIEWERS WATCH

INTENTIONALLY TO RATE

WHICH ONES ARE THEIR

FAVORITES.

BUT THOSE COMMERCIALS

AREN'T CHEAP.

THIS YEAR THEY'VE HAD A

RECORD PRICE AGAIN,

COSTING $5 MILLION FOR A

30-SECOND SPOT.

SOME ANALYSTS SAY IT IS

WORTH IT, SAYING THAT MANY

LOOK FORWARD TO THE

COMMERCIALS, AS WELL AS

THE GAME ITSELF.

> KICKOFF IS JUST TWO

DAYS AWAY, AND THIS SUPER

BOWL IS ALREADY SHAKING UP

TO BE A CLASSIC.

IT IS THE SU UNSTOPPABLE

PANTHERS AGAINST THE

BRONCOS.

Reporter: WHO WOULD

HAVE THOUGHT THE DENVER

BRONCOS WOULD MAKE IT TO

THE SUPER BOWL AFTER

QUARTERBACK PEYTON MANNING

WAS BENCHED IN WEEK 10 AND

FORCED TO SIT OUT AFTER A

FOOT INJURY.

HE SAYS WHEN HE WAS DOWN

AND OUT, IT WAS HIS FAITH

IN THE LORD THAT HELPED

HIM KEEP EVERYTHING IN

PERSPECTIVE.

THERE IS NO QUESTION IT

IS IMPORTANT TO ME.

IT IS VERY PERSONAL TO ME.

THERE IS NO QUESTION THIS

SEASON HAS HAD SOME UNIQUE

CHALLENGES.

AND I TRY TO STAY IN THE

MOMENT, TRIED NOT TO

ASSUME THAT THIS IS HOW

THINGS ARE GOING TO BE

FROM HERE ON OUT.

BUT I HAD A PEACE ABOUT

IT, AND THAT CERTAINLY

HELPED.

Reporter: EMMANUEL

SANDERS IS ONE OF PEYTON

MANNING'S MAIN TARGET, AND

HE IS STILL BLOWN AWAY

ABOUT HOW HE EVEN GOT TO

THE NFL, AND HE GIVES ALL

OF THE GLORY TO THE LORD.

JESUS IS EVERYTHING.

I KI COME FROM A SMALL TOWN

IN TEXAS, AND TO SEE THE

BIG LIGHTS OF THE NFL --

THE REASON WHY I'M SITTING

HERE TODAY IS BECAUSE OF

THE BIG MAN UPSTAIRS, MAN.

GETTING ON MY KNEES AND

PRAYING FOR EVERYTHING.

AND ASKING HIM.

AND EVERYTHING I'VE ASKED

HIM FOR HAS COME TRUE.

YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING

WITHOUT FAITH.

WITHOUT FAITH, I PROBABLY

WOULDN'T BE PLAYING THIS

GAME RIGHT NOW.

IT IS JUST LIKE LIFE.

WHENEVER YOU GO THROUGH

THINGS, YOU HAVE TO HAVE

THAT FAITH.

Reporter: DEMARCUS IS

AN 11-YEAR VET, AND THE

NINE-TIME PRO BOWLER SAYS

HE HAS KNOWN WHERE TO FIND

HIS IDENTITY SINCE HE WAS

A KID.

AS A YOUNGER KID, YOU

ALWAYS TRY TO FIT IN.

AND THEN WHEN YOU FIND

JESUS CHRIST, YOU GET TO

THAT STABLE POINT WHERE

THERE IS SOMEONE YOU CAN

ALWAYS GO TO.

Reporter: THE

PANTHERS HAVE BEEN

DOMINATE ALL SEASON.

QUARTERBACK CAM NEWTON HAS

BEEN A BEAST ON THE FIELD

AND HAS TAKEN A LOT OF

CRITICISM.

BUT HE SAYS REGARDLESS OF

WHAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT

HIM, HE THINKS HE IS HERE

FOR A REASON AND KNOWS HE

HAS THE FAVOR OF GO GOD ON

HIS LIFE.

THERE IS NOT A DAY THAT

GOES BY THAT I DISCREDIT

MY BLESSINGS.

FOR ME TO BE HERE IS NOT

BY MISTAKE.

THESE ARE BLESSINGS THAT

HAVE BEEN MANIFESTED YEARS

AGO.

AND I'M JUST THANKFUL I'M

IN THIS POSITION.

MY FAITH HAS BEEN A

LARGE PART OF EVERYTHING.

IT HAS BEEN MY CENTER

PIECE, MY BACKBONE.

I THINK LIFE IS ALL ABOUT

BALANCE.

AND IF YOU DON'T HAVE GOD

IN YOUR LIFE, LIFE WILL

GET AHOLD OF YOU AND CHOKE

YOU OUT.

I DON'T FIND MY

IDENTITY IN FOOTBALL.

I KNOW I'M JUST PLAYING

FOR ONE.

AND HE

HAS GIVEN ME ALL OF

THIS TALENTS AND

ABILITIES, AND I'M JUST

TRYING TO MAKE THE BEST OF

IT.

Reporter: AFTER

FRACTURING HIS RIGHT ARM

DURING THE N.F.C.

CHAMPIONSHIP GAME, HE IS

STILL PHYSICALLY ABLE TO

PLAY, AND HE GIVES GOD ALL

OF THE GLORY AND PRAISE.

IT MEANS THE WORLD TO

ME, KNOWING THAT GOD HAS

BEEN SO GOOD TO ME.

AND WITH EVERYTHING I'VE

GONE THROUGH THROUGHOUT MY

LIFE, TO KNOW I'M STILL

ABLE TO PLAY THE SAME, I'M

NOT NAIVE.

I KNOW IT IS COMING FROM A

HIGHER POWER.

I JUST RESPECT THAT.

I THANK HIM FOR EVERY

OPPORTUNITY THAT I GET,

WHETHER IT IS THROUGHOUT

THE DAY OR WHEN I GO TO

BED, I

MAKE SURE THE LORD

KNOWS I APPRECIATE HIM.

IT IS MY FOUNDATION.

I TRY TO LET MY

RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS

PERMEATE IN EVERYTHING I

DO, MY RELATIONSHIPS, MY

FINANCES, MY CAREER.

WHEN I'M WITH GOD, I'M

THE BEST HUSBAND, THE BEST

FRIEND.

Reporter: YOU MAY

REMEMBER MICHAEL ORR

EITHER BECAUSE HE WON

SUPER BOWL SEVEN WITH THE

RAVENS, OR FROM THE MOVIE

"THE BLIND SIDE."

HE SAYS HE IS SO GRATEFUL

FOR WHAT GOD HAS DONE IN

HIS LIFE, HE IS WORKING

HARD TO GET TO KNOW HIM

BETTER EVERY DAY.

ME AND MY BUDDIES WERE

TALKING ABOUT GIVING THE

MAN ABOVE THE CREDIT.

BECAUSE ALL OF THE STUFF

HE DOES IS AWESOME.

COMING FROM WHERE

I

CAME

FROM THE LAST

YEAR OR SO

IS DEFINITELY ALL HIM.

Caitlin: IT LOOKS

LIKE BOTH TEAMS HAVE SOME

GREAT GUYS.

I PERSONALLY DON'T WATCH

IT FOR THE FOOTBALL.

I'M ONE OF THOSE

COMMERCIAL PEOPLE.

WE'LL SEE IT THIS WEEKEND.

STAY WITH US.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

Caitlin: ARE YOU

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING

WORTH SEEING AT THE

THEATER THIS WEEKEND?

WE TURN TO BOB

WALLASHEFSKI WITH "FOCUS

ON THE FAMILY'S PLUGGED IN

ONLINE."

HE TAKES A LOOK AT THE NEW

FILM "HAIL CAESAR."

HERE AT CAPITAL

PICTURES, AS YOU KNOW,

MILLIONS OF PEOPLE LOOK TO

US FOR ENTERTAINMENT.

Reporter: THE MOVIE

"HAIL CAESAR" FOLLOWS A

FEW DAYS IN THE LIFE OF A

1960ers MAN.

HE NEEDS TO COVER THINGS

UP IN ORDER TO PROTECT THE

STUDIO'S REPUTATION.

THE BIG PROBLEM ON EDDIE'S

PLATE IS THE DISAPPEARANCE

OF A VERY FAMOUS ACTOR.

A TRUTH WE COULD SEE IF

WE HAD...

Reporter: BUT UNLIKE

THE ACTOR'S OTHER PAST

TRYSTS AND TRIALS, THIS

TIME IT APPEARS THAT THE

LEADING MAN HAS BEEN

KIDNAPPED.

A GROUP CALLING THEMSELVES

"THE FUTURE" HAS MADE A

DEMAND OF $100,000 FOR HIS

RELIEF.

UNFORTUNATELY, THEY DIDN'T

WAIT UNTIL WHITLOCK HAD

FILMED HIS FINAL SCENE, SO

EDDIE HAS TO PASS THIS

PROBLEM STRAIGHT AWAY.

OTHERWISE SEVERAL TIMES

THAT RANSOM AMOUNT COULD

BE LOST INSTALLED

PRODUCTION FEES, NOT TO

MENTION WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN

IF THE GOSSIP MAGAZINES

GOT AHOLD OF IT.

THIS COHEN BROTHERS PICK

HAS STYLISH ON-SET

PRODUCTION NUMBERS AND

NODS TO YESTERDAY'S FILM

ICONS.

IT IS ALSO A FILM THAT

CHALLENGES VIEWERS TO

THINK ABOUT THE THINGS OF

LIFE THAT WE HAVE FAITH

IN.

FROM DISCUSSIONS BETWEEN

COMMUNIST INTELLECTUALS,

TO THE CLERGY DISCUSSING

WHETHER OR NOT JESUS IS

GOD, THE MOVIE GOES ON THE

FAITHFUL PASSIONS THAT

MOTIVATE US FROM DAY TO

DAY.

HOWEVER, THOSE MOMENTS CAN

BE INTERPRETED IN POSITIVE

AND NEGATIVE WAYS.

ADD IN A BIT OF LANGUAGE,

AND I'M GIVING "HAIL

CAESAR," 3.5 STARS OUT OF

5 FOR FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS.
