On CBN Newswatch, Aug. 4: Trump's grand jury response: Russia 'fabrication' just an excuse for Clinton's loss; Netanyahu facing corruption charges: His reps reject 'unfounded claims,' and more. Read Transcript


THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH."

I'M CHARLENE AARON.

THE INVESTIGATION INTO

RUSSIA'S INTERFERENCE IN

LAST YEAR'S ELECTION HAS

ENTERED A NEW STAGE.

SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT

MUELLER HAS IMPANELEDED A

GRAND JURY FOR ITS PROBE.

Reporter: WITHIN

HOURS OF THE NEWS THAT THE

A FEDERAL GRAND JURY IS

INVESTIGATING THE RUSSIAN

INTERFERENCE, TRUMP

LAMBASTELAMBASTED SPECIAL COUNSEL.

ONCE AGAIN HE BLAMED THEM

FOR ADVANCING A FALSE

NARRATIVE ABOUT HIS TIES

TO RUSSIA.

President Trump: THE

REASON WHY DEMOCRATS ONLY

TALK ABOUT THE TOTALLY

MADE-UP RUSSIA STORY IS

BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO

MESSAGE, NO AGENDA, AND NO

VISION.

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT LISTED HIS

ACCOMPLISHMENTS IN JUST A

SHORT SEVEN MONTHS IN

OFFICE.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS HE

SUGGESTS HIS OPPONENTS

DON'T WANT YOU TO KNOW,

LIKE A RECORD-HIGH STOCK

MARKET, REFORMS AT THE

VETERANS ADMINISTRATION,

THOUSANDS OF MANUFACTURING

JOBS COMING BACK TO THE

UNITED STATES.

President Trump: THE

RUSSIA STORY IS A TOTAL

FABRICATION.

IT'S JUST AN EXCUSE FOR

THE GREATEST LOSS IN THE

HISTORY OF AMERICAN

POLITICS.

THAT'S ALL IT IS.

Reporter: GRAND JURYS

ARE COMMONLY USED TO

SUBPOENA RECORDS AND

WITNESSES, BUT IT DOESN'T

MEAN ANY CRIMINAL CHARGES

WILL BE SOUGHT.

BUT THE GRAND JURY NEWS

SUGGESTS MUELLER MAY BE

EXPANDING HIS

INVESTIGATION INTO

FOLLOWING THE MONEY.

NOT ONLY CAN A FEDERAL

GRAND JURY FORCE A

PRESIDENT TO TESTIFY, AS

IN THE CASE OF BILL

CLINTON, IT CAN SUBPOENA

DOCUMENTS LIKE TAX RETURNS

AND BANK RECORDS.

IF I WERE IN THE WHITE

HOUSE, I WOULD BE

CONCERNED THAT THE

INVESTIGATION HAS GONE UP

ANOTHER NOTCH, OR APPEARS

TO HAVE GONE UP ANOTHER

NOTCH.

IN SHORT ORDER, PROBABLY

PEOPLE WHO ARE IN THE

ADMINISTRATION OR FORMER

MEMBERS OF THE

ADMINISTRATION OR FORMER

MEMBERS OF THE CAMPAIGN

WILL BE GETTING SUBPOENAS

TO TESTIFY AND TO PROVIDE

DOCUMENTS.

Reporter: BUT

PRESIDENTIAL LAWYER JAY

SEKULOW SAYS THE PRESIDENT

IS NOT A TARGET OF THE

PROBE.

WE HAVE NO REASON TO

BELIEVE THAT THE PRESIDENT

IS UNDER INVESTIGATION

HERE.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT AND REPUBLICANS

RECEIVED SOME GOOD NEWS ON

THURSDAY.

JIM JUSTICE ANNOUNCED HE

IS SWITCHING PARTIES FROM

DEMOCRATIC TO REPUBLICAN.

LIKE IT OR NOT LIKE IT,

BUT THE DEMOCRATS WALKED

AWAY FROM ME.

TODAY I WILL TELL YOU,

WITH LOTS OF PRAYERS AND

LOTS OF THINKING -- TODAY

I WILL TELL YOU AS WEST

VIRGINIANS, I CAN'T HELP

YOU ANYMORE BEING A

DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR.

Reporter: JUSTICE IS

A COAL MAG NAT. MAGNET.

HE OWNS FIVE MINES.

AND HE ALSO IS A FAITHFUL

CHRISTIAN.

I PRAY MANY TIMES A

DAY.

AND I READ THE BIBLE EVERY

SINGLE NIGHT BEFORE I GO

TO BED.

I'VE DONE IT FOREVER MORE.

WHEN GOD IS IN YOUR LIFE,

YOU KNOW, IT JUST EMPOWERS

YOU, AND YOU'RE NOT

AFRAID, AND YOU JUST --

YOU FEEL HIM THERE.

Reporter: AND WITH

JUSTICE SWITCHING PARTIES,

THERE ARE NOW 34

REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS AND

ONLY 15 DEMOCRATIC

GOVERNORS.

AND THE REPUBLICANS NOW

CONTROL THE GOVERNORSHIP

AND LEGISLATURES IN 26

STATES.

AND DEMOCRATS IS CONTROL

ONLY IN SIX STATES.

THE OTHERS ARE DIVIDED.

BUT THAT NEWS SEEMED

BURIED BETWEEN ALL OF THE

WASHINGTON FRENZY OVER THE

IM PANELING OF THE FEDERAL

GRAND JURY.

MUELLER'S GREATEST MOVE

SUGGESTS IT MAY CONTINUE

FOR A VERY LONG TIME.

GARY LANE, CBN NEWS.

Charlene: THE U.S. IS

GETTING CLOSER TO

DEFUNDING THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY OVER ITS PAY TO

SLAY PROGRAM WITH A BILL

CALLED "THE TAYLOR FORCE

ACT."

THE MEASURE IS IN RESPONSE

TO THE BRUTAL MIEWRT MURDER OF

COMBAT VETERAN TAYLOR

FORCE.

HE WAS STABBED TO DEATH IN

2016 DURING A SCHOOL TRIP

TO ISRAEL.

THE PALESTINIAN MAN WHO

KILLED HIM WAS PRAISED AND

FINANCIALLY REWARDED BY A

GOVERNMENT LARGELY FUNDED

BY U.S. TAXPAYER DOLLARS.

LINDSEY GRAHAM AUTHORED

THE TAYLOR FORCE ACT.

THE PALESTINIAN

AUTHORITY PAYS FAMILIES

LIKE THIS A LUMP SUM OF

MONEY IN LIFETIME

PAYMENTS.

SO IF YOU'RE A YOUNG

PALESTINIAN, THE BEST

THING YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR

FAMILY IN TERMS OF INCOME

STREAMS IS TO BE A

TERRORIST.

Charlene: SENATOR

GRAHAM IS CONFIDENT THE

BILL WILL BECOME LAW.

> BENJAMIN NETANYAHU IS

ACCUSED OF BRIBERY, FRAUD,

AND BREACH OF TRUST.

THE ISRAELI POLICE

CONFIRMED THOSE

ALLEGATIONS WHEN IT

REQUESTED A GAG ORDER TO

RECRUIT NETANYAHU FORMER

AIDE.

IT INDICATED CRIMINAL

CONNECTIONING BETWEEN

CONNECTIONS BETWEEN

HIMSELF, THE PRIME

MINISTER, AND PEOPLE IN

THE CIRCLE.

NETANYAHU ISSUED A

STATEMENT SAYING THAT THE

ALLEGATIONS ARE FALSE: "WE

COMPLETELY REJECT THE

UNFOUNDED CLAIMS MADE

AGAINST THE PRIME

MINISTER.

THE CHANGE IS UNDER WAY,

BUT IT IS DESTINE TO FAIL

FOR THE SIMPLE REASON

THERE WON'T BE ANYTHING

BECAUSE THERE WAS

NOTHING."

> COMING UP, IT IS PART

GYM, PART OBSTACLE COURSE,

AND IT IS TRAINING THE

NEXT GENERATION OF NINJA

WARRIORS.

FIND OUT HOW THESE ELITE

ATHLETES ARE USING THEIR

PLATFORM TO SPREAD THE

IMPANELS.

Charlene: MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE TUNE IN EVERY WEEK

PEOPLE TUNE IN EVERY WEEK

TO WATCH "AMERICAN NINJA

WARRIOR."

COMPETITORS FACE

INCREDIBLE OBSTACLES,

HOPING TO ULTIMATELY TAKE

HOME $1 MILLION.

AS MARK MARTIN SHOWS US,

THE PROGRAM HAS SPARKED A

NEW FITNESS CRAZE ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

Mark: IT IS NOT YOUR

TYPICAL WORKOUT, FROM

SWINGING ON ROPES AND

MANEUVERING THROUGH RINGS,

TO SUPPORTING YOURSELF

WITH PEGS AND WALKING ON

SOFTBALLS.

THOSE TRAINING TO BECOME

NINJA WARRIORS FACE A

VIGOROUS ROAD.

GYM LIKES THIS ARE

GETTING SO POPULAR BECAUSE

IS A DIFFERENT KIND OF

TRAINING.

IT INVOLVES A LOT OF

CALISTHENICS, WHICH IS

JUST BODY MOVEMENT.

Reporter: DANIEL GIL

IS ONE OF THE STUDENTS AT

THE IRON SPORTS GYM.

HE AND THE OTHERS TACKLE

OBSTACLE COURSES.

THE OWNER, SAM, SAYS IT

DEVELOPS ALL MUSCLE GROUPS

AND DEVELOPS MENTAL

TOUGHNESS.

I, MYSELF, AND MY STAFF

TAKE THE TIME TO BUILD

DIFFERENT OBSTACLES TO

GIVE PEOPLE DIFFERENT

TYPES OF TRAINING,

ALTERNATIVE TRAINING, AND

STUFF LIKE THAT.

I TAKE PRIDE IN WHAT WE DO

HERE, AS FAR AS IN ALL OF

THE TRAINING AND ALL OF

THE OBSTACLES THAT WE PUT.

Mark: AND SAM HAS THE

RESULTS TO BACK THAT UP.

HE SAYS EVERY YEAR MORE

THAN 20 PEOPLE FROM THIS

GYM ALONE MAKE IT ON THE

SHOW.

THAT NUMBER INCLUDES

FORMER OLYMPIC GYMNAST TOM

HORNTON, WHO TOOK HOME A

BRONZE MEDICAL ON THE HIGH

BAR.

WE HAVE THE BEST

TRAINING FACILITY IN THE

COUNTRY.

SAM HAS BUILT THE PERFECT

PLACE TO TRAIN.

IT IS EVERYBODY HELPING

EACH OTHER VERSUS IN IT TO

WIN IT.

I THINK THAT'S WHY I LIKE

TO INVITE FRIENDS TO THIS

PLACE BECAUSE I JUST THINK

IT IS THE PEOPLE, THE WAY

EVERYBODY HELPS EACH OTHER

AND REALLY SERVES EACH

OTHER THAT WAY AND

ENCOURAGES EACH OTHER, IS

WHAT BRINGS ME BACK AND

DRAWS ME HERE.

Reporter: GIANA

MANNER SAYS IT ALSO

PROVIDES HER THE

OPPORTUNITY TO BE A

WITNESS FOR JESUS CHRIST.

THIS IS TOTALLY A

PODIUM FOR BEING ABLE TO

REPRESENT THE LORD IN A

CHRIST-LIKE WAY AND BEING

ABLE TO DRAW PEOPLE.

Reporter: AND GRANT

CLINTON AGREES.

BEING A BELIEVER,

THAT'S WHAT IT IS ALL

ABOUT.

IT IS NOT ABOUT ME BEING

UP THERE AND PERFORMING.

OF COURSE, I'M A

COMPETITOR AND I WANT TO

COMPETE WELL AND DO WELL,

BUT GOD'S GLORY IS FIRST.

Mark: THE TRAINING

HAS PROVIDED JAMES WYATT

AN AVENUE TO SHARE HIS

CHRISTIAN FAITH.

IT HAS GIVE ME AN

OPPORTUNITY TO START TO

BIBLE STUDIES AND MEET

PEOPLE AND TALK ABOUT

JESUS TO PEOPLE I PROBABLY

WOULD NEVER MEET.

I CAN TRAIN PEOPLE AND

TEACH PEOPLE AND KIND OF

INTEGRATE THE TWO.

ALL OF THESE THINGS

THAT ARE FUN AND NEW AND

EXCITING ARE TOTALLY OF

THIS WORLD AND ARE

FLEETING, BUT IF IT HAS A

PURPOSE AND A REAL

FOUNDATION AND A, YOU

KNOW, A WAY TO FURTHER THE

KINGDOM, IT IS GOING TO

SUCCEED.

GOD WILL MAKE IT SUCCEED.

I FEEL LIKE THIS CULTURE,

THIS GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO

ARE LOVING ON EACH OTHER

AND SERVING EACH OTHER --

I FEEL LIKE IT IS

SOMETHING THAT WILL STICK

AROUND FOR A REALLY LONG

TIME.

Mark: KIDS ARE ALSO

GETTING INVOLVED, TAKING

PART IN CLASSES AND

DEMONSTRATIONS LIKE THIS

ONE.

[CHEERING]

Mark: DANIEL GIL SAYS

IT MAKES SENSE THAT

YOUNGER GENERATIONS WANT

TO BE NINJAS.

IT IS REALLY FUN FOR

PARENTS AND KIDS A-LIKE.

I FEEL LIKE I'M A KID AT

HEART.

WE LOVE THE CHALLENGE OF

COMING UP AGAINST

SOMETHING THAT MAY BE A

LITTLE INTIMIDATING AND

LEARNING TO CONQUER THOSE

OBSTACLES.

Mark: JAMES SAYS HE

AND HIS WIFE WERE LOOKING

FOR SOMETHING TO DO WITH

THEIR KIDS, AND THE GYM

WAS A GOOD FIT.

HE SAYS THERE IS MORE

ABOUT WHY PEOPLE ARE DRAWN

HERE.

PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR

PLACES TO BELONG, LOOKING

FOR PLACES TO CONNECT, AND

THE NINJA COMMUNITY IS A

GREAT GROUP OF PEOPLE.

THEY'RE VERY FRIENDLY.

THEY'RE VERY HELPFUL.

PEOPLE WANT YOU TO

SUCCEED.

AND IT IS NOT SOMETHING

YOU REALLY FIND IN CULTURE

AND THE WORLD TODAY.

Mark: MARK MARTIN,

CBN NEWS.

Charlene: UP NEXT,

"STUDIO 5" BRINGS YOU A

FIRST LOOK AT THE FILM

"DETROIT."

Charlene: IT'S BEEN

Charlene: IT'S BEEN

EXACTLY 50 YEARS SINCE

RACIAL INJUSTICE TRIGGERED

AN ALL-OUT REBELLION IN

THE CITY OF DETROIT.

AND EVEN IF YOU KNOW THIS

STORY, THERE IS AT LEAST

ONE POWERFUL TALE YOU

HAVEN'T HEARD UNTIL NOW.

EFREM GRAHAM BRINGS US A

FIRST LOOK AT THE FILM

"DETROIT."

*

THAT'S GOOD, MAN.

THANKS.

*

Efrem: HOW INTIMATELY

DID YOU KNOW THE DETAILS

OF THIS STORY?

I KNEW ABOUT THE RIOTS

PRETTY WELL.

I DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE

STORY AT THE ALGIERS

HOTEL.

SO IT WAS A SURPRISE TO ME

TO LEARN HOW THIS LITTLE

POCKET OF A HUGE EXPLOSION

CAME TO EXIST.

> Efrem: THIS FILM

COMES OUT AS WE MARK THE

50th ANNIVERSARY OF THE

DETROIT REBELLION.

MANY WOULD SAY THE

HEADLINES HAVEN'T CHANGED

WHEN IT COMES TO OFFICERS

AND BLACK MEN.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

I WOULD SAY THAT A LOT

OF THAT IS FACTUAL.

WE'RE TELLING ONE OF OVER

300 STORIES THAT

HAPPENEDTHHAPPENEDDURINGHAPPENEDDURING THE '60s.

THIS WAS A VERY COMMON

SCENE.

* A TRAVELLING MAN ONCE

TOLD ME.

* THAT HE DIDN'T HAVE A

CARE *

*

Efrem: YOU PLAY

LARRY, WHO WAS A PART OF

"THE DRAMATICS," BUT WALKS

AWAY FROM IT.

WHY DO YOU THINK HE DID?

WHAT DO YOU THINK MADE HIM

WALK AWAY FROM THE CHURCH,

AND HE IS STILL SINGING

THERE TODAY.

FIRST OF ALL, LARRY WAS

18 WHEN ALL OF THIS TOOK

PLACE.

HAVING A DREAM OF BEING A

SINGER, AND GROWING UP

WHERE MOTOWN IS IN THE

CITY WHERE YOU ARE, YOU

WANT THAT.

ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE A

VOICE, YOU WANT TO BE ABLE

TO GET UP THERE AND SING.

THAT'S ALL YOU SEE.

AND SO THAT'S YOUR PURPOSE

BEHIND IT.

WHEN HE WENT THROUGH THESE

TRAUMATIC EVENTS, AND HE

REALIZED I DON'T WANT TO

GO SING IN THE CLUBS

ANYMORE BECAUSE THAT'S

WHERE THEY ARE, HE HAS TO

FIND PEACE.

SOMETHING WHERE HE CAN

JUST SIT IN A ROOM AND HOW

CAN HE BE AT PEACE.

I THINK HIM FINDING THE

HIGHER POWER AND PEACE IN

HIS SOUL WAS MORE

IMPORTANT THAT CHASING A

BIG DREAM.

IT HURTS YOU TO SEE HIS

DOWNFALL, BUT IT LIFTS YOU

UP TO SEE HIS REDEMPTION.

Efrem: JACOB, YOUR

CHARACTER IS ONE OF THE

MEN WHO DIES.

IT IS QUITE POWERFUL.

WHERE DID YOU GO TO BRING

HIM TO LIFE BECAUSE YOU

DIDN'T GET TO TALK TO HIM

OR MEET HIM.

I THINK OUT THE GATE WE

SEE FRED AND LARRY'S

RELATIONSHIP.

FRED IS THAT SUPPORT

SYSTEM.

WHEN LARRY IS DOWN ABOUT

HIS MUSIC CAREER AND THE

WHOLE FOX THEATER

PERFORMANCE, HE IS, LIKE,

YOU'RE GOING TO GET A

RECORD.

YOU'RE GOING TO DO IT.

YOU'RE GOING TO GET THERE.

AND I THINK FRED WAS

ABSOLUTELY -- HE WAS JUST

COMPLETELY HONEST WITH

HIMSELF ALL THE TIME.

EVEN IF HIS LIFE JUST HAD

TO BE TAKEN AWAY FOR IT.

AND IN THAT SCENE, WHEN HE

ASKED, WHAT DO YOU SEE --

I SEE WHAT I SEE.

I SEE SOMETHING WRONG.

AND FOR ME AND WILL TO DO

THAT SCENE WAS -- IT

WAS -- WHOOSH.

I CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN IT.

IT WAS TOUGH FOR HIM AS

WELL BECAUSE OF OUR

RELATIONSHIP.

IT GIVES ME CHILLS EVERY

TIME I TALK ABOUT IT.

I CAN'T EVEN EXPLAIN IT,

MAN.

HEY, FELLOWS.

WE'RE UNITED SECURITY.

AND I'M GOING IN THAT

GROCERY STORE ACROSS THE

STREET.

COME THERE AND GET IT.

THANK YOU.

THAT'S A NICE BOY.

ALL THINGS CONSIDERED,

THIS IS PRETTY GOOD.

THANK YOU.

GOT ANY SUGAR?

I DON'T PUT SUGAR IN

IT.

Efrem: YOU MENTIONED

PRAYER EARLIER.

HOW IMPORTANT WAS THAT FOR

YOU IN FULFILLING THIS

ROLE?

IT'S REALLY, REALLY

IMPORTANT.

I EVEN HAD MY MOM PRAY

OVER ME.

I WOULD GO HOME AND HAVE

BAD DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES.

AND I THINK THERE IS A

PHOTO OF THE CAST STANDING

THERE AND PRAYING OVER

EACH OTHER.

WE PRAYED BEFORE EVERY

TAKE.

IT IS GOOD BECAUSE

PRAYER CHANGES ENERGY.

AND SO MANY TIMES AS MEN

WE DON'T CONSOLE EACH

OTHER.

AND IT WAS AN EASY WAY FOR

US TO GET IN THAT GROOVE

AND SHOW EACH OTHER LOVE,

BUT JUST HOLDING EACH

OTHER'S HANDS AND SAYING

THIS QUICK PRAYER RIGHT

QUICK.

IT GIVES US A DIFFERENT

TYPE OF LOVE AND TRUST FOR

EACH OTHER.

Charlene: AND

"DETROIT" HITS THEATERS

TODAY.

TABER.

WE'LL > STAY WITH US: WE'LL BERIGHT BACK.

Charlene: 13 REASONS

WHY IS A POPULAR BUT

CONTROVERSIAL TV SERIES ON

NETFLIX.

THE SHOW IS ABOUT A TEEN

ENDING HER LIFE, AND NEW

NUMBERS SHOW IT MAY HAVE

TRIGGERED A SURGE IN

ONLINE SURGES FOR SUICIDE,

INCLUDING HOW TO DO IT.

I SPOKE WITH EVIE BEAR

CARROLL ABOUT THE IMPACT

OF THE SHOW.

DO YOU THINK THE FINDINGS

AND STUDIES WILL ENCOURAGE

NETFLIX TO CHANGE ITS

CONTENT?

WE CERTAINLY HOPE SO.

THERE ARE SO MANY ARTICLES

ON IT.

IT IS THE TALK OF THE

TOWN.

EXPERTS ALL OVER.

WE HAVE OUR OWN STUDIES ON

IT, HOW TEENAGERS ARE VERY

SUSCEPTIBLE, SPECIFICALLY

IN THE TEENAGED YEARS, AND

THAT'S WHAT THE SHOW IS

ALL ABOUT.

SO WE'RE HOPING.

IN THE PAST, WE HAVE

GOTTEN OTHER SHOWS TO BE

CANCELLED FROM HUGE

STUDIOS.

NBC HAD A SHOW CALLED "THE

PLAYBOY CLUB."

I CAN'T SAY SOME OF THE

FULL NAMES ON TV, OR

WOULDN'T WANT TO, BUT

WE'VE GOTTEN THOSE SHOWS

CANCELLED.

AND THE WAY THAT YOU DO

IT -- THE STUDIOS WILL

NEVER WANT TO SAY THEY'LL

CANCEL IT.

THE WAY WE DO IT, OUR CBN

AUDIENCES, OUR MOVIE GUIDE

AUDIENCES, TELL YOUR

FRIENDS, AND YOU YOURSELF

DON'T WATCH THE SHOW,

DON'T PROMOTE IT IN ANY

WAY.

LOOK AT THE RESEARCH ON

WHY IT IS SO HARMFUL.

AND DON'T WATCH IT.

THEY WON'T PRODUCE THIS

CONTENT IF PEOPLE AREN'T

WATCHING IT.

Charlene: DO YOU

THINK THERE WILL BE A

SEASON TWO OF "13 REASONS

WHY?"

WELL, IT IS IN THE

PROCESS.

IT IS ALREADY IN THE

WORKS.

BUT THEY CAN ALWAYS PULL

THINGS.

IF WE'RE ADAMANT ABOUT IT,

IF WE'RE REALLY GETTING

OUT THERE AND MAKING NOTE

NOT TO WATCH IT, THEY CAN

ALWAYS PULL IT.

THERE IS A LOT OF TRACTION

ON TWITTER AND SOCIAL

MEDIA ABOUT THE SHOW.

BUT RECENTLY IT HAS ALL

BEEN THE NEGATIVE SIDE

EFFECTS.

SO HOPEFULLY THEY'LL BE

ABLE TO PULL IT.

LIKE I SAID, IT IS ALREADY

IN THE WORKS.

Charlene: EVIE, WHAT

CONVERSATION SHOULD

PARENTS HAVE WITH THEIR

CHILDREN ABOUT THE SHOW?

AT MOVIE GUIDE, WE

ALWAYS SAY TALK TO YOUR

TEENAGERS, YOUR CHILDREN,

ABOUT MEDIA.

TALK ABOUT IT, ANALYZE IT.

HELP THEM TO ANALYZE THE

CONTENT FOR THEMSELVES.

SO FOR THIS PARTICULAR

SHOW, WE'RE NOT SAYING

WATCH IT.

WE DON'T REALLY WANT

PEOPLE TO WATCH IT, LIKE

I'VE BEEN SAYING.

BUT IT IS GOOD TO TALK

ABOUT THE REPERCUSSIONS OF

SUICIDE.

WHAT HAS BEEN IN THE NEWS

LATELY IS THE LINCOLN

PARK, THE LEAD SINGER WHO

DIED.

HE HAD SIX CHILDREN.

IT IS GOOD TO TALK ABOUT

WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE

FAMILY.

SUICIDE IS VERY SAD TO THE

ENTIRE FAMILY, AND THE

REPUREPERCUSSIONS ARE

EXTREMELY SERIOUS.

WITH TEENAGERS OR

CHILDREN, YOU HAVE TO SHOW

THEM THAT.

YOU CAN'T JUST SAY DON'T

WATCH SOMETHING, BUT

REALLY TELL THEM THE

REASONING WHY WE SHOULDN'T

SUPPORT SOMETHING.

Charlene: ABSOLUTELY.

EVIE BEAR CARROLL WITH

"MOVIE GUIDE," THANKS FOR

JOINING US TODAY.

> THE WEEKEND IS ALMOST

HERE, SO LET'S TURN TO

"PLUGGED IN" AT "FOCUS ON

THE FAMILY."

THIS WEEK THE TEAM REVIEWS

"THE DARK TOWER."

I'VE BEEN FIGHTING THE

MAN IN BLACK FOR

CENTURIES.

HE IS LIKE THE DEVIL,

ISN'T HE?

NO.

HE'S WORSE.

Reporter: THE MOVIE

"THE DARK TOWER," IS ALL

ABOUT A BATTLE BETWEEN

GOOD AND EVIL.

AND IT FOCUSES ON A MASK

MAGICAL DIMENSION CALLED

MID-WORLD.

HERE A DEVILISH MAN IN

BLACK USES HIGH-TECH

DEVICES --

HERE WE GO.

Reporter:

TO SUCK OUT THE ENERGY

OF CHILDREN AND ATTACK

THAT POWER.

AND EVERYONE IS SEEKING A

SPECIAL YOUNG BOY.

IF THAT SOUNDS LIKE A

TROUBLED ADOLESCENT FEVER

DREAM, WELL, IT IS.

AND IT IS THE STUFF THAT

YOUNG JAKE CHAMBERS HAS

BEEN DREAMING ABOUT FOR A

COUPLE OF YEARS NOW.

THINGS HAVE GOTTEN SO BAD

THAT HIS MOM IS SENDING

HIM TO PSYCHIATRISTS AND

CLINICS FOR SOME TYPE OF

MENTAL HELP.

BUT WHAT IF THOSE DREAMS

AREN'T JUST SUPPRESSED

ANXIETY?

WHAT IF JAKE ISN'T JUST

SIMPLY DEALING WITH

EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS

CONNECTED TO HIS FATHER'S

DEATH?

WHAT IF IT IS ALL VERY

REAL?

BASED ON A BOOK SERIES BY

STEVEN KING, THIS MIXED

ADVENTURE IS CHOCK FULL OF

BRAVERY AND ACTION AND IT

SPEAKS TO THE BONDS

BETWEEN FATHERS AND SONS,

BUT THERE IS GUN-BLAZING

VIOLENCE, A BIT OF

PROFANITY AND SOME DARK

THINGS.

SO I'M GIVING IT 2.5 OUT

OF 5 FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLINESS.

FOR MORE INDEPTH REVIEW OF

THIS FILM OR ANYTHING ELSE

AT YOUR LOCAL BOX OFFICE,

VISIT US AT "PLUGGED IN."

I'M BOB WALLASHEFSKI FOR
