Live-Action 'Beauty And The Beast ' Revisits A Tale As Old As Time

Corrected on March 17, 2017

Bob Mondello says:

"In describing how the first song in the new Beauty and the Beast differs from the animated version, I made a factual error.

"I played a brief bit of dialogue in which Belle encounters a man on the street — Monsieur Jean — who thinks he has lost something, but can't remember what. And then I said, 'That bit's new, and while it's not important [because] this forgetful guy never reappears, it is helpful[.]'

"That's just wrong. Turns out, I'm the forgetful one. Not only does Monsieur Jean reappear, but his being forgetful in this new bit of dialogue is actually setting up a plot thread that is important. It's part of the 'lots of back story' that I later praise the filmmakers for having concocted.

"It's hard to say more without spoilers, and reviewers aren't supposed to say spoilers. We're also not supposed to say things that would cause millions of 6-year-olds to shout at their radios, 'Nooooo, Silly! That's _________.'

"See? No spoilers. At least I got that part right."

Planned Parenthood Would Lose Millions In Payments Under GOP Health Plan

Corrected on March 14, 2017

A previous Web version of this story incorrectly referred to the American Health Care Act as the American Health Insurance Act. Additionally, that version referred to a CBO report estimate that the federal government would reduce its payments for reproductive care to Planned Parenthood by $178 million in 2017 under the proposed bill. According to a Planned Parenthood spokesperson, the organization stands to lose about $400 million in Medicaid reimbursements per year, and the CBO estimate did not fully reflect those reimbursements.

We also previously said in the Web version that the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates was involved in lobbying activities. That organization primarily gives legal advice and other support to faith-based pregnancy centers.
