Announcer: THIS IS

CBN "NEWSWATCH."

Efrem: AND THANK YOU

SO MUCH FOR JOINING US.

I'M EFREM GRAHAM.

PRESIDENT TRUMP'S HISTORIC

MEETING WITH KIM JONG-UN

IS JUST FOUR DAYS AWAY.

BUT FIRST HE'LL BOARD AIR

FORCE ONE TO MEET WITH THE

WESTERN ALLIES IN

CANADA'S.

OUR BEN KENNEDY HAS MORE

ON THIS FROM THE WHITE

HOUSE.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP WILL SPEND THE

WEEKEND AT THE G7 SUMMIT

IN CANADA.

TRADE WILL DOMINATE THE

TALKS WITH WORLD LEADERS.

THE G7 SUMMIT KICKS OFF

WITH TALKS OF TRADE WARS

AND RETALIATION, AS

PRESIDENT TRUMP SLAPS

STEEL AND ALUMINUM TARIFFS

ON WESTERN ALLIES.

WE'LL DO WHAT IS

NECESSARY TO PROTECT THE

UNITED STATES, ITS

BUSINESSES AND ITS

WORKFORCE.

HE HAS ALWAYS SAID, AND I

AGREE, TARIFFS ARE A TOOL

IN THAT EFFORT.

Reporter: TRUMP'S TOP

ECONOMIC ADVISOR

DOWNPLAYED THE RIST.

WE'RE TALKING

EVERYTHING THROUGH.

THERE MAY BE

DISAGREEMENTS.

I REGARD THIS MUCH LIKE A

FAMILY QUARREL.

THESE TARIFFS ARE

TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.

Reporter: NOW TRUMP

IS SIT DOWNING WITH FRENCH

PRESIDENT EMMANUEL MACRON

AND JUSTIN TRUDEAU.

THEY'RE ALREADY FRUSTRATED

WITH TRUMP FROM

WITHDRAWING FROM THE PARIS

CLIMATE ACCORD, AND EVEN

THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL.

THIS COMES BEFORE HIS

MEETING H WITH KIM UN.

SHINZO ABE CAME TO TALK

ABOUT THE 12 CITIZENS

ABDUCTED BY THE ROGUE

REGIME.

President Trump: HE

VERY MUCH TALKED ABOUT

ABDUCTION.

IT WAS PREEMINENT IN OUR

CONVERSATIONS.

HE TALKED ABOUT IT LONG

AND HARD AND PASSIONATELY,

AND I WILL FOLLOW HIS

WISHES, AND WE WILL BE

DISCUSSING THAT WITH NORTH

KOREA.

Reporter: ON

JUNE 10th, OUR PRESIDENT

FLIES DIRECTLY TO

SINGAPORE, WHERE HE'LL BE

CONVINCING KIM JONG-UN TO

GET RID OF HIS NUCLEAR

WEAPONS.

BEN KENNEDY, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

Efrem: HERE IS A LOOK

NOW AT SOME OF THE OTHER

BIG HEADLINES WE'RE

FOLLOWING FOR YOU TODAY:

NETFLIX HAS RENEWED ITS

CONTROVERSIAL DRAMA "13

REASONS WHY," EVEN AS THE

SUICIDE RATE IS ON THE

RISE IN NEARLY 50 STATES.

THE SHOW GRAPHICALLY

DEPICTED SCENES OF SUICIDE

IN SEASON ONE AND

CONTINUED THAT THEME IN

SEASON TWO.

THE CENTERS FOR DEC DISEASE

SAYS RATES FROM INCREASED

SIININCREASEDSIGNIFICANTLY, BY 25%.

> IT IS A GAME OF HURRY

UP AND WAIT AT THE

U.S.-MEXICO BORDER.

THOUSANDS ARE LINING UP AT

THE BORDER, WAITING WEEKS

TO GET IN.

THEY ARE THE HIGHEST LEVEL

IN 20 YEARS.

MEANWHILE, CONGRESS STILL

HAS NOT COME UP WITH A

COMPREHENSIVE IMMIGRATION

BILL.

Facebook SAYS A

GLITCH HAPPENED IN MAY.

IT LED SOME USERS TO POST

PUBLICLY, REGARDLESS OF

THEIR PRIVACY SETTING.

Facebook HAS NOTIFIED

USERS WHO ARE AFFECTED.

REMEMBER, YOU CAN FIND

MORE ON THESE STORIES

THROUGHOUT THE DAY ON

cbnnews.com.

> A FORMER SECURITY

DIRECTOR FOR THE SENATE

INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE HAS

BEEN ARRESTED ON CHARGES

OF LYING TO REPORTERS.

IT COMES AMONG A CRACKDOWN

ON LEAKS ON CLASSIFIED

INFORMATION.

JAMES A.WOLF WAS IN

REGULAR CONTACT WITH

JOURNALIST WHO'S COVERED

THE COMMITTEE.

HE ALSO HAD A ROMANTIC

RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE

REPORTER, AND THAT

REPORTEDLY LASTED FOR

ABOUT THREE YEARS.

> WE'RE JUST DAYS AWAY

FROM THE SUMMIT IN

SINGAPORE, AND THE

PRESIDENT IS DOWNPLAYING

HOW MUCH HE HAS BEEN

PREPARING.

HE SAID, QUOTE, "I DON'T

THINK I HAVE TO PREPARE

VERY MUCH."

AND GOING ON TO SAY IT

ISN'T SO MUCH AS

PREPARATION AS ABOUT

ATTITUDE GOING IN.

AND HE ALSO SAID HE WOULD

NOT HESITATE TO CALL OFF

THE MEETING AGAIN.

THE SECRETARY OF STATE

SAYS THE PRESIDENT HAS

BEEN PREPARING AND

RECEIVING DAILY BRIEFINGS

FROM HIS NATIONAL SECURITY

TEAM, SPENDING ABOUT

10 HOURS A WEEK PREPARING

FOR THE SUMMIT.

NEXT WEEK THE SUMMIT

BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP

AND KIM JONG-UN IS

EXPECTED TO TAKE PLACE IN

SINGAPORE, WHILE THE WORLD

AWAITS ANY POSITIVE

OUTCOME.

THERE IS PROBABLY NO ONE

WATCHING CLOSER THAN THE

PEOPLE OF NORTH KOREA.

ERIK ROSALES TALKED WITH

ONE GROUP OF A NORTH

KOREAN DEFECTOR FOR THEIR

TAKE ON THE UPCOMEPING UPCOMING

MEETING.

Reporter: NO NUKES,

THAT'S THE MAIN MESSAGE

AND GOAL COMING FROM THE

WHITE HOUSE GOING INTO

NEXT WEEK WEEKS' HISTORIC

SUMMIT.

MIKE POMPEO REMAINS

CAUTIOUSLY OPTMISTICALLY

IT WILL TAKE PLACE, BUT

WHAT ABOUT HUMAN RIGHTS.

SOME BELIEVE THE PEOPLE

SHOULD ARE JUST AS

IMPORTANT AS ANY NUCLEAR

DEAL.

FOR 70 YEARS, STARTING

FROM SEPTEMBER 1948, TO

TODAY, COUNTLESS NUMBER OF

PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED

AND STARVED TO DEATH.

THE FACT THAT THE GENOCIDE

HAS OCCURRED, THE GROSS

VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS

HAS OCCURRED, IT MUST BE

INCLUDED IN THEIR SUMMIT

TALKS.

Reporter: THIS WOMAN

DESCRIBES SCENES OF PRISON

DOGS EATING DEAD BODIES AS

SHE WAS INSIDE HER LABOR

REFORM PRISON CAMP.

SHE AND OTHERS ATE GRASS

AND SEEN TREE BARK.

MY MISERY DID NOT END

AFTER BEING SOLD INTO

HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

THEN ONCE I WAS RETURNED

TO NORTH KOREA, I WAS

BRUTALIZED BY THE NORTH

KOREAN STATE OFFICIALS,

TORTURED.

I WAS FORCED TO HAVE AN

ABORTION WITHOUT THE USE

OF ANESTHETICS.

Reporter: DEFECTORS

SAY CONDITIONS HAVE ONLY

GROWN WORSE WITH HARSH

PUNSMENT FOR THOSE TRYING

TO ESCAPE.

THIS MURDEROUS,

GANGSTER REGIME SHOULD BE

OUT OF POWER.

AND ANOTHER LEADER SHOULD

COME INTO POWER THAT

RESPECTS THE FREEDOMS AND

RIGHTS OF FREEDOM AND DOES

NOT CONSIDER GOD AS AN

ENEMY OF THE STATE.

Reporter: BUT CHANGE

IS TAKING PLACE.

MORE NORTH KOREANS ARE

TURNING TO CHRIST, THANKS

TO UNDERGROUND CHURCHES.

THE GOSPEL IS BEING

SHARED, AND JESUS IS

WORKING AMONG THE PEOPLE

IN NORTH KOREA.

Reporter: PRESIDENT

TRUMP SEES HUMAN RIGHTS AS

A MAJOR CONCERN IN NORTH

KOREA, BUT WHETHER IT WILL

BE AT THE FOREFRONT OR

EVEN MENTIONED IN

SINGAPORE HAS YET TO BE

SCENE.

Efrem: IS HUNDREDS

ARE STILL MISSING IN

GUATEMALA.

NOW DANGEROUS CONDITIONS

FORCED SEARCH TEAMS TO

SUSPEND OPERATIONS.

"OPERATION BLESSING" IS

BRINGING AID AND COMFORT

TO EXHAUSTED RESCUE

WORKERS AND GRIEVING

FAMILY.

Reporter: ANOTHER

BODY IS COVERED FROM

BENEATH THE ASHES LEFT BY

GUATEMALA'S VOLCANO OF

FIRE.

HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE ARE

FEARED DEAD, AND HUNDREDS

MORE ARE STILL MISSING.

THE VOLCANO HAS SMOKED

SEVERAL TIMES SINCE

SUNDAY'S BIG ERUPTION.

AND THE LIVES OF THOSE IN

THE TOWN OF ELDEO ARE

STILL AT RISK.

THIS IS A VERY

DANGEROUS AREA.

NOBODY CAN REACH THIS

SIDE, UNLESS THEY HAVE

PERMISSION FROM THE

AUTHORITIES, FROM THE

ARMY.

WE ARE IN THE VERY EXACT

LOCATION OF THE DISASTER.

WE BROUGHT, TODAY, FOOD

FOR THE RESCUERS.

WE BROUGHT SOME MASKS,

LIKE THE ONE THAT I'M

WEARING NOW, SO THEY ARE

USING THEIR MASKS AND THEY

ARE PROTECTED WHILE

THEY'RE WORKING HERE.

Reporter: BECAUSE OF

THE ONGOING ERUPTIONS, THE

GUAGUATEMALAN ARMY ASKED

"OPERATION BLESSING" TO

EVACUATE TO A MORE SECURE

AREA.

SO THE VOLUNTEERS

CONCENTRATED THEIR EFFORTS

IN SHELTERS, DISTRIBUTING

FOOD AND MEDICAL SUPPLIES,

AND MINISTERING AND

PRAYING WITH PEOPLE IN

NEED.

TRAUMATIZED RESCUERS WERE

AMONG THOSE WHO RECEIVED

SPIRITUAL RELIEF.

THIS FIREFIGHTERS SAID HE

AND HIS FELLOW FIREMAN ARE

TIRED.

THEY DISTRAUGHT BY THE

HORROR OF SEEING CHARRED

BODIES OF DEAD WOMEN AND

CHILDREN.

THEIR GRIEF IS DOUBLED

BECAUSE TWO OF THEIR

FELLOW FIREMEN ARE ALSO

MISSING.

THEY WILL CONTINUE

SEARCHING UNTIL THEY FOUND

THEM.

AND ONE FIREMAN FOUND A

LITTLE GIRL.

AND HE SAID, ARE YOU

ALONE?

WHERE IS YOU MOTHER, HE

SAID.

AND SHE POINTED AND SAID,

SHE IS OVER THERE IN THAT

COFFIN.

MANY EVACUEES ARE

SUFFERING FROM LOSS AND

SHOCK.

ALMOST THEIR ENTIRE

VILLAGE WAS KILLED.

THEY SAW FAMILIES BEING

KILLED.

AND THEY THE DON'T KNOW

HOW MANY, BUT IT SOUNDED

LIKE DOZENS OF FAMILIES

THAT WERE JUST KILLED.

AND THEY JUST MADE IT

HERE.

WE'RE PRAYING WITH THEM

RIGHT NOW.

SO PRAY WITH US.

PRAY WITH US.

Reporter: GARY LANE,

CBN NEWS.

Efrem: ACROSS THE GYM

IN INDIANA IS CLOSED, AND

A HIGH RANKING BUSINESS

OWNER IS OUT.

IT ALL COMES OVER

CONTROVERSY OF A WORKOUT

PLAN TO HONOR GAY PRIDE

MONTH.

ONE OF THE OWNERS OF THE

GYM CANCELLED THE WORKOUT

SAYING TRUE HEALTH FOREVER

CAN ONLY BE FIND WITHIN

HUMILITY, NOT PRIDE.

LESS THAN A DAY LATER, THE

STAFF MEMBER RESIGNED.

MEMBERS LEFT, FORCING THE

GYM OUT OF BUSINESS.

RUSSELL BURGER TWEETED HIS

SUPPORT FOR CANCELLING THE

WORKOUT, WRITING: "THANK

YOU FOR STANDING BY YOUR

CONVICTIONS AND REFUSING

TO CELEBRATE SIN."

> COMING UP, CALLING FOR

CHANGE.

A NEW REPORT SHOWS PLANNED

PARENTHOOD FAILED TO

REPORT SEXUAL ABUSE.

SEE THE LAWMAKERS WHO WANT

TO HOLD THE GROUP

ACCOUNTABLE.

Efrem: A NEW REPORT

DOCUMENTS PLANNED

PARENTHOOD'S FAILURE TO

REPORT SEX ABUSE, EVEN

WHEN VICTIMS WERE ASKING

FOR HELP.

THIS IS SENDING SHOCKWAVES

THROUGH CONGRESS, AND

MEMBERS ARE DEMANDING

CHANGE.

JENNIFER WISHON HAS MORE

ON THIS STORY FROM

WASHINGTON.

Jennifer: A YOUNG

GIRL FROM OHIO SEXUALLY

ABUSED BY HER FATHER

PLEADED WITH PLANNED

PARENTHOOD FOR HELP.

INSTEAD, SHE WAS SENT HOME

WITH HER ABUSER.

SHIS IS JUST ONSHE IS JUST ONE OF THE

VICTIMS IN A NEW REPORT

FROM "LIVE ACTION."

SHE IS A MANDATED

REPORTER OF SEXUAL ABUSE,

AND INSTEAD OF THAT, WHAT

WE'VE DOCUMENTED IS THEY

SEND THEIR ABUSERS RIGHT

BACVICTIMS RIGHTBACK TO THE ABUSERS.

I DIDN'T HEAR THE AGE.

I DON'T WANT TO KNOW THE

AGE.

THAT'S CHILD ABUSE.

Jennifer: THE REPORT

SHOWS INSTEAD OF HELPING

GIRLS, PLANNED PARENTHOOD

IS EMPOWERING ABUSERS,

PIMPS, AND TRAFFICKERS

THROUGH ABORTION.

IT HAS COME TO LIGHT

THAT PLANNED PARENTHOOD

PERFORMS ABORTIONS ON

GIRLS AS YOUNG AT 12 YEARS

OLD.

AND THEN SENDS THEM RIGHT

BACK INTO THE ARMS OF

THEIR ABUSERS.

YOU NEVER GOT THIS FROM

ME.

THIS COULD MAKE ALL OF OUR

LIVES DIFFICULT.

THEY'RE 14?

YES.

Jennifer: STATISTICS

SHOW NEARLY 70% OF HUMAN

TRAFFICKING VICTIMS HAD AT

LEAST ONE ABORTION AT A

CLINIC DURING THEIR

CAPTIVITY.

ARE THESE LIVES NOT

IMPORTANT TO PLANNED

PARENTHOOD?

Jennifer: NEARLY 60

MEMBERS OF CONGRESS SIGNED

A LETTER ASKING THE

SECRETARY OF HEALTH TO

LOOK INTO THIS PROBLEM.

THEY'RE ALSO PUSHING FOR

NEW REGULATIONS ON GROUPS

LIKE PLANNED PARENTHOOD

THAT RECEIVE MILLIONS OF

DOLLARS OF FEDERAL FUNDS

TO BEEF UP REQUIREMENTS TO

REPORT ABUSE.

UNFORTUNATELY, BECAUSE

THE AMERICAN TAXPAYER IS

FUNDING THIS GROUP,

$1.5 MILLION EVERY DAY, WE

ALSO ARE COMPLICIT, IN

ENABLING THE ABUSE OF

THESE YOUNG GIRLS.

Jennifer: JENNIFER

WISHON, CBN NEWS,

WASHINGTON.

TAMMY: STIL Efrem: STILL AHEAD,

FAITH AND POLITICS, SOME

SAY THE TWO SHOULD NOT

MIX.

WE'RE SITTING DOWN WITH

ONE OF THE PRESIDENT'S

FAITH ADVISORS TO HEAR HIS

Efrem: 1500 SOCIAL

CONSERVATIVES ARE IN THE

NATION'S CAPITAL THIS

WEEKEND TO PREPARE FOR THE

UPCOMING ELECTIONS BATTLE.

IT IS A TIME TO STRATEGIZE

AND MOTIVATE VOTERS.

SENATOR CRUZ TAUGHTED MANY

VICTORIES, INCLUDING

MOVING THE U.S. EMBASSY TO

ISRAEL.

JUDGES, PRINCIPLE

CONSTITUTIONALIST JUDGES

DEFENDING OUR RIGHTS.

[APPLAUSE]

WE SEE THOSE ON THE

FEDERAL COURTS ALL ACROSS

THE COUNTRY.

WE SEE IT IN JUSTICE NEIL

GORSUCH, AND LET ME BE ONE

TO THANK GOD FOR THE

VICTORY WE HAD THIS WEEK

IN THE COLORADO BAKER'S

CASE.

[APPLAUSE]

[CHEERING]

Efrem: VICE PRESIDENT

MIKE PENCE WILL HEADLINE

SATURDAY NIGHT'S "ROAD TO

THE GALA."

THE PRESIDENT'S ADVISORS

FACE CRITICISM FROM THE

MEDIA AND POLITICAL

OPPONENTS.

AND SPIRITUAL LEADERS TAKE

SOME HEAT AS WELL.

THAT'S BECAUSE SECULAR

CRITICS ARE QUICK TO

ACCUSE THEM OF DROPPING

THEIR PRINCIPLES JUST TO

HAVE ACCESS TO THE OVAL

OFFICE.

Reporter: PASTOR SAM

IS FROM SACRAMENTO, WHERE

HE PASTORS "NEW SEASON

CHURCH."

HE IS THOUSANDS OF MILES

AWAY FROM THE WHITE HOUSE

HERE, BUT STILL ENJOYS

AMAZING ACCESS.

RODRIGUEZ REGULARLY

COMMUNICATES WITH THE

PRESIDENT AND ALSO KNOWS

HIS FAMILY WELL.

IN HIS OFFICE, YOU'LL FIND

MOMENTOS MARKING HIS 2017

INAUGURAL PRAYER.

HE CALLS HIS RELATIONSHIP

WITH THE PRESIDENT AN

ASSIGNMENT FROM HEAVEN.

IT IS NOT SAM

RODRIGUEZ.

IT IS WAY BEYOND SAM.

Reporter: COLLEGE

PRESIDENT AND FRIEND JOHN

JACKSON BELIEVES THIS ROLE

REPRESENTS A SIGN OF

FAVOR.

SAM HAS THE OPPORTUNITY

TO BE PRESENT IN THE ROOM,

TO SPEAK INTO THE LIFE OF

THE PRESIDENT, TO SPEAK

INTO THE LIFE OF THE

ADMINISTRATION.

Reporter: WHILE IT

MAY SEEM GLAMOROUS,

RODRIGUEZ KNOWS FULL WELL

THE PRESSURE INVOLVED.

IT COMES FROM FELLOW

HISPANICS.

IT IS TOUGH TO SEE

PEOPLE IN YOUR OWN

COMMUNITY SUFFER, AND THEN

YOU HAVE TO RECONCILE AND

JUSTIFY WHY DO YOU HAVE

ACCESS TO PEOPLE.

Reporter: AND IT ALSO

COMES FROM FELLOW

EVANGELICALS.

SOME BELIEVE THE

PRESIDENT'S FAITH ADVISORS

PROVIDE MORAL COVER FOR A

LEADER WHO'S ACTS DON'T

LINE UP WITH BIBLICAL

VALUES.

RODRIGUEZ RESPONDS BY

POINTING TO HIS TRACK

RECORD, THAT INCLUDES

ADVISING THE PRIOR TO

ADMINISTRATIONS, AND THE

SUPPORT FROM HIS

RACIALLY-MIXED

CONGREGATION.

THEY SEE IT A PROPHETIC

CONTINUUM.

THEY KNOW I'M LAMB'S

AGENDA.

Reporter: IT IS WHY

RODRIGUEZ CAN QUESTION

FELLOW EVANGELICALS WHO

DIDN'T PROTEST OBAMA'S

POLICIES THAT SUPPORTED

ABORTION AND OPPOSED

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.

I HAVE A PROBLEM IF YOU

WEREN'T HERE OPPOSING TO

POLICIES OF PRESIDENT

OBAMA THAT LED COUNTER TO

OUR JUDEO-CHRISTIAN

SYSTEM, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN I WAS AGAINST

TRUMP.

POLITICS DEFINING THE

EVANGELICAL WORLD INSTEAD

OF THE EVANGELICAL WORLD

DEFINING POLITICS.

Reporter: HE STILL

HASN'T REACHED HIS GOAL OF

IMMIGRATION REFORM.

HE HAS PUSHED FOR IT FOR

YEARS, WORKING WITH THE

WHITE HOUSE AND DEMOCRATS,

INCLUDING NANCY PELOSI, TO

MAKE IT HAPPEN.

HE SAW A GLIMMER OF HOPE

EARLIER THIS YEAR WHEN THE

WHITE HOUSE PROPOSED

HELPING DREAMERS, BUT THE

CONGRESS FAILED.

THE PRESIDENT REALLY

GAVE IT AT THE OLD COLLEGE

TRY.

Reporter: RODRIGUEZ

MAINTAINS HE DOES NOT

FOLLOW REPUBLICANS OR

DEMOCRATS.

HE PURSUES WERE HE CALLS

THE LAMB'S AGENDA.

WHILE RODRIGUEZ WILL

PRAISE THE PRESIDENT, HE

WILL ALSO SPEAK HIS MIND,

ESPECIALLY ON IMMIGRATION.

CASE IN POINT: AFTER

REPORTS THAT TRUMP MADE

OFFENSIVE COMMENTS ABOUT

IMMIGRANTS FROM HAITI, EL

SALVADOR, AND AFRICA,

RODRIGUEZ CONDEMNED THE

LANGUAGE, CALLING IT

HURTFUL.

SO WHAT KEEPS HIM GOING?

AS A CALIFORNIAN, HE SAYS

HE IS VERY FAMILIAR WITH

THREATS TO RELIGIOUS

LIBERTY, AND HOW THE

PRESIDENT IS KEEPING THEM

AT BAY.

AND HE WANTS TO FIGHT FOR

THE INNOCENTS, LIKE THE

UNBORN AND IMMIGRANT

CHILDREN.

I'VE SEEN FAMILIES

SEPARATED BECAUSE THE

PARENTS ARE DEPORTED.

I'VE SEEN THE OUTCOME OF

RACISM IN VARIOUS

COMMUNITIES.

THAT'S WHAT DRIVES ME.

Reporter: THAT, ALONG

WITH A CONSTANT PRAYER ANY

TIME HE ENTERS THE WHITE

HOUSE.

I WALK INTO IT, AND I

ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO

ANOINT EVERY SINGLE WORD.

GOD, DON'T LET ANYTHING

COME OUT FROM SAMUEL

RODRIGUEZ, PLEASE.

Reporter: REPORTING

LIVE, HEATHER SELLS, CBN

NEWS.

Efrem: A TRUE MAN OF

FAITH.

> STAY WITH US.

Efrem: IF YOUR

WEEKEND INCLUDES A TRIP TO

THE THEATER, OUR FRIENDS

AT "PLUGGED IN," TAKES A

LOOK AT "OCEANS 8," AND

HOW IT MEASURES UP TO

FAMILY FRIENDLINESS.

YES, THAT'S EXACTLY

RIGHT.

OR WHAT?

Reporter: IN THE

MOVIE "OCEANS 8," DEBBIE

OCEAN, THE SISTER OF THE

LEGENDARY BUT NOW DECEASED

CON MAN DANNY OCEAN HAS

DREAMED UP WHAT SHE

CONSIDERS TO BE A PERFECT

CAPER.

FOR THREE AND A HALF

WEEKS, THE MET WILL BE

HOSTING ITS ANNUAL BALL,

AND WE'RE GOING TO ROB IT.

Reporter: AFTER FIVE

YEARS OF INTENSE PLANNING,

SHE HAS THOUGHT OF EVERY

CONCEIVABLE PITFALL AND

SOLVED THEM ALL.

HER PLAN IS PERFECT.

AND IN 12 WEEKS, SHE

EXPECTS THAT SHE AND HER

CREW WILL ALL BE BANKING A

COOL $16 MILLION EACH.

DEB'S BEST FRIEND LOU,

HOWEVER, ISN'T SO

CONVINCED.

SHE IS CERTAIN THAT THE

SCHEME WILL REQUIRE 20 OR

MORE PEOPLE AND HUNDREDS

OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS IN

SEED MONEY.

GAME ON.

Reporter: BUT DEB

OCEAN ONLY SMILES.

I NEED SEVEN PEOPLE AND

$20,000, SHE DECLARES.

IT WILL BE A TEAM OF

UNSTOPPABLE FEMALE CROOKS.

AND THEY'LL PULL OFF THE

BIGGEST CON THAT NEW YORK

CITY HAS EVER SEEN.

THIS IS YET ANOTHER HEIST

TALE IN THE FRANCHISE OF

OCEAN FLICKS THAT STARTED

WAY BACK IN 1960 WITH

FRANK SINATRA.

BUT THERE ARE FAR MORE

REASONS TO SKIP THIS PILL

FOR PIC THAN THERE ARE TO

SEE IT.

THERE IS FOUL LANGUAGE,

LARCENY, BOOZING, AND A

BUNCH OF TALENTED

ACTRESSES WITH NOTHING

MUCH TO DO.

I'LL GIVE IT JUST 2.5 OUT

OF 5 FOR FAMILY

FRIENDLINESS.

FOR ANYTHING ELSE, VISIT

US AT pluggedin.com.

I'M CHERYL, FOR "FOCUS ON

THE FAMILY'S" "PLUGGED IN"

MOVIE REVIEW.

Efrem: IT IS TIME FOU

NOR YOUR FRIDAY FAITHFUL.

GOD PROMISES TO SUPPLY

BLESSINGS YOU WON'T HAVE

ROOM TO RECEIVE, SO IF YOU

STILL HAVE ROOM, GUESS

WHAT?

THERE ARE MORE BLESSINGS

TO COME.

WAIT ON HIM AND WATCH HIM

WORK.
