THANKS FOR JOINING US

FOR CBN "NEWSWATCH," I'M

MARK MARTIN.

PRESIDENT TRUMP IS MOVING

TO ROLE BACK KEY ELEMENTS

OF TWO OF PRESIDENT

OBAMA'S MAJOR

ACCOMPLISHMENTS, OBAMACARE

AND THE NUCLEAR DEAL WITH

IRAN.

THE PRESIDENT IS

ANNOUNCING HIS PLANS TODAY

TO DESER DECERTIFY THE IRAN

DEAL, AND THE GOVERNMENT

WILL STOP ITS SUBSIDIES

FOR INSURANCE COMPANIES

FOR OBAMACARE PAYMENTS.

HE SIGNED AN ORDER THAT HE

SAYS WILL GIVE AMERICANS

BETTER AND CHEAPER HEALTH.

Reporter: WHILE THE

IRANIANS ARE TECHNICALLY

COMPLYING WITH THE DEAL

SIGNED BY OBJECTIO BY PRESIDENT OBAMA

IN 2015, THE PRESIDENT

SAYS IT IS THE WORST DEAL

EVER BY THE UNITED STATES.

IT MEANS THE PRESIDENT

WILL CHANGE THE DEAL,

INCLUDING MAKING CHANGES

AGAINST THE IRANIAN

REGIME, AND PUTTING

PRESSURE ON IRAN TO

CONSIDER SOME CHANGES IN

THE DEAL.

ON THURSDAY, THE PRESIDENT

TOOK OTHER ACTION TO ROLL

BACK HEALTH CARE.

AFTER MAKING A FEW

REMARKS, THE PRESIDENT

WARMLY CAM GREETED THOSE WHO

CAME TO SEE HIM SIGN.

VICE-PRESIDENT PENCE

REMINDED HIM HE HAD YET TO

SIGN THE DOCUMENT.

BUT DEMOCRATS ARGUE IT

WILL BE COSTLY TO THOSE

COVERED BY OBAMACARE,

ESPECIALLY THE SICK.

THAT WOULD BE A

CATASTROPHIC DECISION THAT

WILL LEAVE MILLIONS OF

PEOPLE LOSING THEIR

INSURANCE.

Reporter: THE

PRESIDENT IS ENDING SOME

OF WASHINGTON'S KEY

SUBSIDIES FOR OBAMACARE.

HE SAYS THE GOVERNMENT

CANNOT LEGALLY PAY

$7 BILLION IN OBAMACARE

CO-PAYS AND DEDUCTIBLES

BECAUSE CONGRESS HAS NEVER

APPROPRIATED SPECIFIC

MONEY TO DO IT.

THE PRESIDENT INSISTS THE

MONEY WOULD BE BETTER

GOING DIRECTLY TO THE

STATES FOR THEM TO HANDLE

IT.

THE PRESIDENT'S ORDER ALSO

PROMOTES CHOICE AND

COMPETITION, BY ALLOWING

THE FORMATION OF HEALTH

CARE ASSOCIATIONS, A

FAVORITE OF SMALL

BUSINESSES AND KENTUCKY

SENATOR RAND PAUL.

THE EXECUTIVE DECISION

ALSO ALLOWS INSURANCE TO

BE PURCHASED ACROSS STATE

LINES.

President Trump: SO

THIS IS PROMOTING HEALTH

CARE, CHOICE AND

COMPETITION, ALL ACROSS

THE UNITED STATES.

THIS IS GOING TO BE

SOMETHING THAT MILLIONS

AND MILLIONS OF PEOPLE

WILL BE SIGNING UP FOR,

AND THEY'RE GOING TO BE

VERY HAPPY.

THIS WILL BE GREAT HEALTH

CARE.

Reporter:

CONGRESSIONAL DEMOCRATS

ARGUE THE PRESIDENT IS

RIPPING APART OBAMACARE.

HE IS SABOTAGING HEALTH

CARE, AND WE HAVE NO

ACTION IN THE CONGRESS.

Reporter: AND WHILE

THE PRESIDENT SAYS HIS

EXECUTIVE ORDER IS THE

FIRST STEP IN REPEALING

AND REPLACING OBAMACARE,

SOMETHING THE SENATE HAS

FAILED TO DO THREE TIMES

THIS YEAR.

HOUSE SPEAKER PAUL RYAN

SAYS LEGISLATING HEALTH

CARE IS BEST LEFT UP TO

CONGRESS.

IF YOU DON'T SUCCEED,

TRY, TRY AGAIN.

JUST KEEP AT IT.

THE DEATH TOLL IN

CALIFORNIA IS NOW AT 31,

MAKING THE FIRES BURNING

OUT OF CONTROL THERE THE

DEADLIEST IN STATE

HISTORY.

TWO OF THE FIRES HAVE

MERGED, AND FIREFIGHTERS

HAVE WARNED THAT THE

EMERGENCY IS NOT EVEN

CLOSE TO OVER.

CADAVER DOGS ARE NOW BEING

USED TO SNIFF THROUGH THE

ASH IN SEARCH OF VICTIMS.

AS OF LATE THURSDAY, 400

PEOPLE WERE STILL MISSING.

THE FLAMES HAVE LEFT

ENTIRE NEIGHBORHOODS AND

COMMERCIAL DISTRICTS IN

COMPLETE RUIN.

MORE PEOPLE ARE NOW

EVACUATING WHILE THEY

STILL CAN.

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS

REALLY HAPPENING.

I'VE NEVER BEEN IN A

SITUATION LIKE THIS.

HIGH WINDS THAT SPREAD

AND FUEL THE FIRE ARE

PREDICTED TO RETURN TO

CALIFORNIA INTO THE

WEEKEND.

AN ABORTION CLINIC WAS

RECENTLY CLOSED DOWN IN

ONE OF THE MOST

PRO-ABORTION STATES IN THE

NATION.

PAUL STRAND REPORTS FROM

GERMAN TOWN, MARYLAND.

Reporter: AFTER SOME

60 MILLION BABIES KILLED,

YOU MIGHT THINK IT DOESN'T

DO A LOT OF GOOD TO FIGHT

AGAINST HIT.

IN 2010, ANDREW GLEN FOUND

OUT LEROY HAD STARTED TO

DO LATE-TERM ABORTIONS OUT

OF A CLINIC JUST A MILE

FROM GLEN'S HOME, WHEN

GLEN'S OWN WIFE WAS 20

WEEKS PREGNANT, AND HE

COULDN'T STAND IT.

COMING TO THE REAL

REALIZATION MONTHS AFTER

MY BABY WAS BORN, HE WAS

DOING THAT.

WE LITERALLY STOOD IN

FRONT OF THE OFFICE

DEVELOPMENT HERE FOR OVER

8,000 HOURS.

Reporter: BUT IN THE

BEGINNING, THEY COULDN'T

GET CLOSE TO THE CLINIC

BECAUSE IT WAS PRIVATE

PROPERTY.

THE POLICE WOULD COME

IN AND CITE THEM AND

WOULDN'T ALLOW THEM TO BE

THERE.

Reporter: BUT THEN

THE PROLIFERS ESTABLISHED

THEIR OWN OPERATION FOR

PREGNANT WOMEN, AND THAT

CHANGED THE BATTLE.

THAT GAVE US THE

ABILITY, BECAUSE WE'RE

TENANTS IN THE

DEVELOPMENT, TO BE HERE ON

THE SIDEWALKS.

Reporter: AND THEY

HEARD MANY TESTIMONIES

LIKE THIS.

I SAW SOMEBODY OUT

THERE WITH A SIGN, AND I

DECIDED TO NOT GO THROUGH

AN ABORTION.

AND HERE IS MY 3-YEAR-OLD

SON WHO IS NOW ALIVE, AND

WE CAN'T IMAGINE LIFE

WITHOUT HIM.

THE TWO OF THEM HAD

DRIVEN ALL NIGHT FROM A

MID-WESTERN STATE TO COME

HERE.

THEY CAME TO OUR CLINIC.

WE SPENT TIME WITH THEM,

AND THE TEENAGED GIRL,

AFTER SEEING THE IMAGE ON

THE SONOGRAM, DECIDED SHE

WAS GOING TO KEEP HIM.

Reporter: GLEN

RECALLS A COUPLE HEADED

HERE BECAUSE THEY WERE

TOLD THEIR BABY COULDN'T

SURVIVE AFTER BIRTH.

SOME PRIESTS CAME AND

PRAYED OVER THE BABY.

THEY WENT TO ROCKVILLE

PREGNANCY CENTER, HAD AN

ULTRASOUND, DECIDED NOT TO

HAVE AN ABORTION, AND THE

BABY WAS DELIVERED AND

THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG

WITH THE BABY AT ALL.

NOW HE IS A 4-YEAR-OLD,

HAPPY, RAMBUNCTIOUS KID.

Reporter: DESPITE

THESE INDIVIDUAL

SUCCESSES, CLOSING

CARHART'S CLINIC DOWN SEEM

IMPOSSIBLE.

HE IS A VERY POWERFUL

GUY, AND IT WAS

DISCOURAGING.

Reporter: BUT THIS

REAR A LOCAL PASTOR

REACHED OUT TO THE

LANDLORD OF THE ABORTION

CLINIC.

HE SAID, I KNOW YOU'RE

TIRED, WE'RE TIRED, WOULD

YOU LIKE US TO PURCHASE

THE CLINIC TO CLOSE YOU

DOWN?

Reporter: AND HE

AGREED, AND THEY SENT THEM

PACKING.

WE ARE ABSOLUTELY

REJOICING.

THAT WAS THE MOST BARBARIC

FORM OF ABORTION OFFERED

UP HERE.

AND JUST TO HAVE THAT OUT

OF OUR BACKYARD IS A

RELIEF.

Reporter: BOTH GLEN

AND EVANS ENCOURAGE PEOPLE

TO KEEP FIGHTING BECAUSE

HEARING THE PRO-LIFE SIDE

CHANGES THE MIND OF AS

MANY AS 80% OF WOMEN

HEADED FOR ABORTION.

I SEE IT EVERY DAY.

WOMEN COME IN HERE AND

THEY NEED THAT

INFORMATION.

AND THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

GET THAT INFORMATION IN AN

ABORTION CLINIC AT ALL.

SHOULD WE GIVE UP THE

FIGHT?

NEVER.

Reporter: MARYLAND

PROLIFERS POINT OUT, A

VICTORY IS A VICTORY.

PAUL STRAND REPORTING FROM

GERMANTOWN, MARYLAND.

THE U.S. IS PULLING OUT

OF A U.N. AREA BECAUSE OF

ITS POLICY WITH AN

ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS.

UNESCO PASSED A RESOLUTION

REJECTING ANY LEGAL OR

HISTORIC CLAIMS BY ISRAEL

TO THE CITY OF JERUSALEM.

IN JULY IT DECLARED

HEBRON, WHERE ABE ABRAHAM,

ISAAC, AND JACOB ARE

BURIED AS A HERITAGE

SIGHT.

> PALESTINIAN RIVALS

HAMAS AND FATAH ANNOUNCED

A PRELIMINARY AGREEMENT.

WHEN ISRAEL LEFT GAZA IN

2007, THEY HAD A PITCHED

BATTLE IN THE STREETS

BEFORE HAMAS GAINED

CONTROL OF THE TERRITORY.

AND SINCE THEN, HAMAS HAS

FIRED ROCKETS ON SOUTHERN

ISRAEL, PROMPTING ISRAEL

TO FIGHT THREE WARS WITH

THE TERRORIST GROUP.

IF THE NEW AGREEMENT GOES

THROUGH, GAZA COULD BE

RETURNED TO THE CONTROL OF

PALESTINIAN PRESIDENT

MAHMOUD ABBAS.

AND IT COULD ALSO MEAN

EGYPT WILL OPEN ITS BORDER

CROSSING WITH GAZA,

POSSIBLY ALLOWING MORE

WEAPONS INTO THE

TERRITORY.

ISRAELI PRIME MINISTER

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SAYS HE

OPPOSES ANY DEAL THAT DOES

NOT REQUIRE HAMAS TO

RECOGNIZE ISRAEL, RELEASE

ISRAELI HOSTAGES AND STOP

ITS MILITANT ACTIVITIES.

> COMING UP, SEE HOW

SOME CATHOLIC

CONGREGATIONS ARE

ATTRACTING NEW BELIEVERS

WITHOUT COMPROMISING THEIR

VALUES.

AFTER YEARS OF SCANDAL,

ATTENDANTS IN CATHOLIC

CHURCHES IS DOWN.

HOWEVER, ONE NEW STRATEGY

OF REVITALIZATION IS

WORKING.

IT IS SOMETHING ANY CHURCH

CAN USE FOR A 21st

CENTURY TRANSFORMATION.

CAITLIN BURKE REPORTS.

Reporter: THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH IS KNOWN

FOR ITS SACRED CONDITIONS,

BUT THOSE CONDITIONS CAN

MAKE THE CHURCH SEEM

RESISTANT TO CHANGE.

ONE PHILADELPHIA CHURCH

CHANGED THAT.

IN THE '60s, THIS

NEIGHBORHOOD WAY HALF

JEWISH AND HALF IRISH

CATHOLIC.

NOW IT IS ENTIRELY

AFRICAN-AMERICAN.

THE SYNAGOGUES LEFT.

BUT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH

STUCK AROUND TO WELCOME

THEIR NEW NEIGHBORS.

AS A PASTOR, I SEEK TO

LET PEOPLE WHO DON'T HAVE

A CHURCH HOME, THAT WE'RE

A VIABLE OPTION.

Reporter: CULTURALLY

AND HISTORICALLY, THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH DOESN'T

OFFER MUCH TO

AFRICAN-AMERICANS.

FATHER CHRIS WALSH WANTED

TO CHANGE THAT.

I LIKE TO TELL PEOPLE

THAT ST. RAYMOND'S IS BOTH

AUTHENTICLY CATHOLIC, AND

ALSO AUTHENTICLY BACK

CHURCH EXPERIENCE.

IT TAKES THE BEST OF BOTH

WORLDS, THE HISTORY AND

THE LITURGY AND GIVES IT

VERY MUCH A BLACK CHURCH

FEEL, AS FAR AS MUSIC, AS

FAR AS PREACHING STYLE, AS

FAR AS WORSHIP EXPERIENCE.

Reporter: WALSH FOUND

IT WASN'T THEOLOGY THAT

NEEDED TO CHANGED, BUT THE

CHURCH THAT NEEDED TO SHOW

THEM IT MEETS THEIR NEEDS.

PAUL UNDERSTOOD THAT

THE FOLKS IN CARINTH IS

NOT THE SAME AS FOLKS IN

OTHER AREAS, BUT THE

MESSAGE IS THE SAME.

THE MESSAGE IS ALWAYS

CHRIST.

Reporter: AUTHOR

CHRIS BROWNY USES FATHER

WALSH AND ST. RAYMOND'S AS

A PRIME EXAMPLE OF HOW THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH NEEDS TO

CHANGE.

IN HIS BOOK, HE WRITES

THAT TO THRIVE IN TODAY'S

WORLD, WE DON'T HAVE TO

DRINK SOME 21st CENTURY

COCKTAIL.

WHAT WE HAVE TO LEARN

TO DO IS JUST TO DRINK

MORE DEEPLY FROM OUR OWN

FIRST CENTURY WELL.

Reporter: HE WRITES

THAT THE CHURCH IS FACING

ITS WORST CRISIS IN 500

YEARS.

THIS IS KIND OF A

SLOW-MOTION CRISIS FOR THE

CATHOLIC CHURCH, AND, OF

COURSE, OTHER CHRISTIAN

CHURCHES ARE SUFFERING

SOME OF THESE PHENOMENA.

IN A WAY, I USE THAT

PHRASE AND USE THOSE

STATISTICS EARLY IN THE

BOOK AS A KIND OF A CALL

TO ACTION.

Reporter: HE OFFERS

WHAT HE CALLS AN EASTER

STRATEGY, EN ENTREPRENEURIAL,

ACCOUNTABLE, SERVE,

TRANSFORM, AND REACH.

IT FIRST ESTABLISHED

LEADERSHIP TEAMS TO HELP

MANAGE OPERATIONS,

MINISTRIES, AND PROJECTS.

AND THEN THEY GATHERED

INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT

PEOPLE WANTED FROM THEIR

WALK WITH CHRIST AND HOW

THE CHURCH COULD MEET

THOSE NEEDS.

AFTER ANALYZING THAT DATA,

THEY MADE ANY CHANGES

NECESSARY.

ST. RAYMOND'S SERVES THE

NEIGHBORHOOD WITH A

CATHOLIC SCHOOL, PROVIDING

FAMILIES WITH A SAFE PLACE

FOR THEIR CHILDREN TO

LEARN.

LONG TIME PARISHIONERS

FELT ST. RAYMOND'S ONCE

DEPENDED ON CHURCH

WELFARE.

NOW THINKS TO THE CULTURAL

TRANSFORMATION, COMPLETE

WITH MUSIC AND

DECORATIONS, PEOPLE TRAVEL

FROM OTHER AREAS TO HELP

PACK THE PEWS EACH SUNDAY.

AS A CHURCH, WE HAVE TO

REALIZE IT IS NOT GOING TO

BE ON OUR TERMS.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO

COMMIT TO TEACHING SUNDAY

SCHOOL EVERY SUNDAY

MORNING AT 11:00.

HOWEVER, THEY MIGHT COME

ONCE A MONTH AND THEY

MIGHT BE REALLY PHENOMENAL

AND REALLY OFFER

SOMETHING.

THEY MIGHT BE OPEN TO

LEADING A FACE-SHARING

GROUP IN THEIR APARTMENT

WITH FOUR FRIENDS.

Reporter: HE POINTS

OUT EVEN THE POPE IS

ENCOURAGING AN ATTITUDE OF

INNOVATION IN THE CATHOLIC

CHURCH.

HE TOOK HIS OWN ADVICE

RECENTLY AT THE ANNUAL TED

CONFERENCES, AS HE SPOKE

ON THE SCREEN.

HE SURPRISED HIS AUDIENCE

BY USING MODERN TOOLS OF

THE DIGITAL AGE TO REACH

THEM.

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

[SPEAKING A FOREIGN

LANGUAGE]

Reporter: HE FEELS

THIS STRATEGY IS UNIVERSAL

AND CAN REVITALIZE ANY

CHURCH, NO MATTER THE

BELIEF SET OR

DENOMINATION.

FOR IT TO WORK, HOWEVER,

HE STRESSES IT CAN'T JUST

BE FROM THE TOP DOWN, EVEN

IF IT IS THE POPE THAT

CALLS FOR CHANGE.

IT REQUIRES EVERYONE TO

LEAD.

CAITLIN BURKE, CBN NEWS,

PHILADELPHIA,

PENNSYLVANIA.

UP NEXT, THE LIFE OF A

LEGENDARY SUPREME COURT

JUSTICE COMES TO THE BIG

SCREEN.

WE'VE GOT YOUR FIRST LOOK.

CHRISTIAN ACTRESS

CANDACE CAMERON BUR HAS

JOINED THE CHORUS OF

FEMALE CELEBRITIES

SPEAKING OUT AGAINST HAR

WYNONNA.

HARVEY WEINSTEIN.

THE ARTICLE CALLS

WEINSTEIN'S BEHAVIOR

DISGUSTING BUT NOT

SURPRISING.

BIALAK ALSO SAYS THAT THEY

NEED TO SHINE A LIGHT ON

THE ISSUE.

AND THEY WROTE THAT

PARENTS SHOULD TEACH THEIR

CHILDREN BOUNDARIES IN HOW

TO FIND THEIR IDENTITY IN

CHRIST.

> IT IS TIME TO SIT DOWN

WITH ACTOR CHADWICK

BOSMAN.

HE PLAYS THE ROLE OF

THURGOOD MARSHALL BEFORE

HIS HISTORIC DAYS AS THE

FIRST AFRICAN-AMERICAN

SUPREME COURT JUSTICE.

EFREM GRAHAM HAS THIS

STORY.

THANK YOU, JAKE.

Efrem: CHADWICK

BOSMAN PLAYED JACKIE ROBIN

SIN IN 1942, AND JAMES

BROWN IN "GET ON UP," AND

NOW THE ROLE OF THURGOOD

MARSHALL BEFORE HIS RISE

TO BECOME THE FIRST

AFRICAN-AMERICAN JUSTICE

ON THE UNITED STATES

SUPREME COURT.

ALL OF THE OTHER

BIOPICS THAT CAME TO ME,

YOU KNOW, I TURNED THEM

DOWN.

SHE SAYS YOU RAPED HER

AND YOU TRIED TO KILL HER.

SHE LIED.

I'M TELLING YOU THIS UP

FRONT, THE NAACP, WE'RE

NOT LIKE MOST LAWYERS.

WE ONLY REPRESENT INNOCENT

PEOPLE, PEOPLE ACCUSED

BECAUSE OF THEIR RACE.

THAT'S OUR MISSION.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND?

Efrem: ONE OF THE

UNIQUE AND BEAUTIFUL

THINGS ABOUT THIS IS HE

HAS GOT TO DEFEND SOMEONE

ACCUSED OF RAPE AND

ATTEMPTED MURDER.

BUT HE CAN'T SPEAK IN THE

COURTROOM.

HOW DO YOU DO THAT?

WELL, THAT WAS THE

QUESTION.

I MEAN, FOR ME, READING

THAT HE IS GAGGED IN THE

COURTROOM, AT FIRST, IT

WAS, LIKE, THERE IS NO WAY

I'M DOING THIS BECAUSE I

DON'T GET TO TALK IN THE

COURTROOM.

I DON'T GET THE BIG

SPEECHES.

AND AT A CERTAIN POINT, AS

I CONTINUED TO READ, I

REALIZED THAT HE WAS

HAVING -- IT WAS, LIKE,

DOING A BOXING MATCH WITH

YOUR ARMS TIED BEHIND YOUR

BACK AND STILL WINNING.

IF YOU CAN DO THAT, YOU'RE

THE GREATEST FIGHTER IN

THE WORLD.

SO IT BECAME THE WHOLE --

REALLY THE CONCEDING, THE

OBSTACLE, ACTUALLY, TO GET

OVER.

IT BECAME A CONVERSATION

OF HOW DO WE (A) SET UP

THE FIRST PART OF THE

MOVIE, YOU KNOW,

EVERYTHING OUTSIDE OF THE

COURTROOM, AND KNOWING IT

SO WELL, SO THAT WHEN WE

GET IN THE COURTROOM AND I

CAN'T SPEAK, THAT THAT IS

JUSTIFIED.

THE HERO IS ESTABLISHED.

AND HOW DO I CONTINUE TO

ESTABLISH THE HERO NOT

BEING ABLE TO TALK?

HOW ARE WE SHOOTING THIS?

A LOT OF THAT WAS FOUND

WHEN WE ACTUALLY GOT

THERE.

THAT WAS IMPROVISATIONAL.

IT WAS ALL STUFF THAT JOSH

AND I FOUND, OR THAT I

FOUND ALONE WHEN THE

CAMERA WAS JUST ON ME.

THAT IS JUST A GREAT

ACTING EXERCISE.

IT IS SOMETHING THAT I

KNEW WOULD BE DIFFICULT

FOR ANY ACTOR TO PULL OFF.

Efrem: YOU DO IT

WELL.

I KNOW COMING INTO IT, I

THOUGHT, WELL, CHADWICK

DOESN'T LOOK LIKE THURGOOD

MARSHALL, BUT YOU REALLY

BECOME HIM, IN MY MIND,

WATCHING IT.

THE TIMING OF THIS FILM,

SET IN 1941, AND WE'RE IN

2017, HAVING A

CONVERSATION ABOUT RACE

YET AGAIN.

HOW TIMELY DO YOU THINK

THIS FILM IS?

IT IS SO TIMELY.

WE COULDN'T EVEN PLAN IT.

BECAUSE WE WANTED IT TO

COME OUT THROUGH OBAMA'S

WHITE HOUSE.

THE PRODUCERS WANTED A

WHITE HOUSE SCREENING OF

THIS MOVIE.

THE MOVIE WASN'T DONE YET,

AND WE END UP NOW PUTTING

THE MOVIE OUT, NOT KNOWING

WE WOULD BE IN THIS TIME,

POSTCHARLOTTESVILLE,

DEALING WITH THREE

ATTEMPTS AT CHANGING

HEALTH CARE.

DEALING WITH THE PRESIDENT

SAYING THAT PLAYERS CAN'T

PROTEST -- ESSENTIALLY

PROTESTING -- AND UNFAIR

TREATMENT OF

AFRICAN-AMERICANS BY

POLICE.

IT IS ESSENTIALLY ASKING

AMERICANS TO LIVE UP TO

ITS DREAMS.

AND THAT'S PATRIOTISM.

SO WE DIDN'T KNOW THAT

PATRIOTISM WOULD BE UNDER

ATTACK, THAT

CHARLOTTESVILLE WOULD HAVE

HAPPENED AND WHITE

SUPREMACY WOULD HAVE HAD

SUCH A FOREFRONT.

AND THAT'S WHERE THIS

MOVIE IS.

THIS MOVIE HAS A BACKDROP

OF WHITE SUPREMACY IN

GERMANY, AND HAS A

FOREFRONT OF WHITE

SUPREMACY IN THE STORY.

WE DON'T KNOW THIS MOVIE

WOULD SPEAK TO THIS TIME

PERIOD BECAUSE WE PLANNED

FOR IT TO COME OUT MUCH

EARLIER THAN THIS.

ONCE AGAIN, THE FILM IS

"MARSHALL," AND IT OPENS

IN THEATERS TODAY.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK WITH

MORE OF "NEWSWATCH."

WELCOME BACK.

IF YOU'RE LOOKING FOR SOME

FAMILY-FRIENDLY

ENTERTAINMENT THIS

WEEKEND, WE'VE GOT A

HELPFUL MOVIE REVIEW FROM

OUR FRIENDS AT "PLUGGED

IN."

THIS WEEK THEY CHECK OUT

"GOOD-BYE CHRISTOPHER

ROBIN."

Reporter: IN THE

MOVIE "GOOD-BYE

CHRISTOPHER ROBYN," THE

AUTHOR AND PLAYWRIGHT

RETURNS FROM WORLD WAR I

INTENT ON WRITING THE

DEFINITIVE BOOK

CHAMPIONING WORLD PEACE.

WHAT IF WE FIGHT THAT

WAR?

Reporter: BUT BEFORE

THAT PROJECT TAKES PLACE,

HE AND HIS WIFE HAVE A SON

NAMED CHRISTOPHER ROBIN, A

BOY THEY LEAVE PRIMARILY

IN THE CARE OF A NANNY.

BUT WHEN THE NANNY NEEDS

TIME TO TEND TO A SICKLY

MOTHER, YOUNG CHRISTOPHER

AND HIS FATHER DO

SOMETHING RARE.

SHALL WE GO FOR A WALK?

AREN'T GOING TO WORK?

IT DOESN'T SEEM LIKELY.

Reporter THE CREATURES IN THE

STORY ARE TOYS.

THEY'RE TOYS, BUT THE

WOODS ARE REAL.

Reporter: THEN WHEN

FATHER PUBLISHES THESE

STORIES, THEY BECOME

WILDLY SUCCESSFUL.

LETTERS POUR IN, AND

PEOPLE AND THE PRESS

CLAMOR TO MEET THE REAL

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN.

SUBSEQUENT MEDIA

INTERVIEWS PROVE TO BE

FABULOUS MARKETING TOOLS.

BUT AT WHAT PRICE.

AS CHRISTOPHER BECOMES

AWARE OF THE UNWANTED

ATTENTION, HIS SOLUTION IS

HEADING UP THE NEXT WORLD

WAR.

IT UNDERSCORES THE

IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY

BONDING, AND IT REMINDS

VIEWERS THAT CHILDREN

SUFFER WHEN IT IS

PERCEIVED THEY'VE BEEN

USED TO ADVANCE SOMEONE

ELSE AT THEIR EXPENSE.

THERE IS SOME BULLYING,

AND NON-WAR VIOLENCE.

I'M GIVING "GOOD-BYE

CHRISTOPHER ROBIN" FOUR

HONEY POTS OUT OF FIVE FOR

FAMILY-FRIENDLY.

FOR MORE, CHECK OUT

"PLUGGED IN."

PLUGGING YOU INTO THE

MOVIES, I'M CHERYL, FOR

"FOCUS ON THE FAMILY'S"

"PLUGGED IN" MOVIE REVIEW.

THAT'S IT FOR NOW ON

CBN "NEWSWATCH."
