It was 2003 and this was the official line:
"CBS will not broadcast THE REAGANS on November 16 and 18. This decision is based solely on our reaction to seeing the final program, not the controversy that erupted around a draft of the script."
That was the official statement when CBS decided not to air its biased liberal docudrama THE REAGANS about President Reagan and his wife, Nancy. While CBS went down swinging by saying that it was their own reaction and not the controversy raised by conservatives that led them to move their multi million dollar, four hour drama to sister pay cable Showtime, we know better.

A new movie is out via digital downloads that chronicles the Mormon's involvement in the passing of Proposition 8, a California voter initiative that affirms the traditional truth of marriage as being a legal bond between one man and one woman only.
The filmmakers say the film is "for voters who deserve to see how money and misinformation can influence public policy." Made by some of the people that brought viewers the homofascist movie MILK, the story of homosexual activist Harvey Milk, 8: THE MORMON PROPOSITION proves the point merely that there are many in society who believe marriage should be between one man and one woman.

Jennifer Knapp is a Christian music artist. Recently she announced that she's a homosexual. She questioned the authenticity of Bible translations on the issue of homosexuality. She's not the first to try her hand at this.
Here's a portion of her rationale:
"The Bible has literally saved my life. I find myself between a rock and a hard place-between the conservative evangelical who uses what most people refer to as the "clobber verses" to refer to this loving relationship as an abomination, while they're eating shellfish and wearing clothes of five different fabrics, and various other Scriptures we could argue about. I'm not capable of getting into the theological argument as to whether or not we should or shouldn't allow...

Often at MOVIEGUIDE® we deal with non-believers, skeptics, and biblically Christians complaining about some aspect of our biblical, Christ-centered worldview.
One of the things many of these critics forget is the amazing prophecies that God inspired the Hebrew prophets to write down in the Hebrew Scriptures, aka the Old Testament, especially the ones that make startling predictions about Jesus Christ.
The first, and one of the best, prophecies is the one that God told Satan, the evil "serpent," in Genesis 3:15:
"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel."
This passage clearly shows that the Messiah, the seed of the w...
While the Christian and conservative press have been issuing the clarion call that pornography is harmful, the secular and liberal press has failed to catch up until now:
The New York Times writes about women addicted to pornography - it turns out no one is safe from the ravages of pornography.
Tina Brown's The Daily Beast carries an article about the violent home life of top porn star Jenna Jameson and the poverty ex-porn stars suffer.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune has an opinion piece that could have been written by Dr. James Dobson, but it wasn't. Here is something from the piece:
"Frequent porn viewing tends to stoke aggression: a 2007 study found that 88 percent of 50 best-selling adult videos contain physical violence. For some me...

Q: Can you tell us a little bit about why inspiring movies for families are so important?
DL: I have an 8-year-old son, and I sometimes despair of the world that he's growing up in ...while on the one hand it's a world that's bursting open and there are lots of opportunities, on the other hand there are lots of elements that seem quite harsh. And given that that is part of the world that we're growing up in and my son will be growing up in, I think that a...
A new study in Canada shows that early television watching, especially heavy TV watching, leads to many health, academic and social problems later in life.
The study of 1300 children born in Quebec between 1997 and 1998 showed that early TV watching is linked to:
1) Less engagement in classroom activities,
2) Less exercise on weekends,
3) More soft drink consumption, and
4) A higher chance of being picked on by classmates in the fourth grade.
According to Fox News, "The average time spent watching TV at 29 months was 8.82 hours per week, or about 1.2 hours per day. (The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends children under 2 watch no TV, and children over age 2 watch no more than 2 hours per day.)"
"Television is a passive int...
Freshly released on DVD is FLICKA 2, a sequel to the recent adaptation of the well-loved novel. Throughout the years, the 1941 book by Mary O'Hara has been the subject of a number of movies and even a TV series.
FLICKA 2 picks up the story of the high-spirited horse named Flicka who meets up with an equally high-spirited teenage girl named Carrie.
Movieguide® had a chance to chat with the director of FLICKA 2, Michael Damien.
No stranger to movies and horses, Michael directed MOONDANCE ALEXANDER about a girl and her horse and was tapped by Fox to helm the important sequel. In addition to directing, Michael has starred in front of the camera in films and TV series, most notably on THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS for close to 18 years.
