    Chris Christie is headed to primetime, the New Jersey Governor will appear on Michael J. Fox’s scripted comedy this fall. NBC confirmed the politician’s appearance but wouldn’t comment on what role he’ll play. “The Michael J. Fox Show" premieres September 26 and follows the life of news achor Mike Henry, played by Fox. His character on the show, like Fox, suffers from Parkinson’s disease. Though he made a name for himself playing conservative, Reagan-loving Alex P. Keaton on “Family Ties,” in real life the actor leans to the left.

    Michael J. Fox, whose turn from Parkinson’s disease patient to scientific crusader made him one of the country’s most visible advocates for stem cell research, now believes the controversial therapy may not ultimately yield a cure for his disease, he told ABC’s Diane Sawyer in an exclusive interview. There have been “problems along the way,” Fox said of stem cell studies, for which he has long advocated. Instead, he said, new drug therapies are showing real promise and are “closer today” to providing a cure for Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative illness that over time causes the body to become rigid...

    Here’s Josh Brahm explaining this “Oprah” spot, in which Dr. Oz comes out against embryonic stem-cell research on scientific grounds (Warning: In it he handles, pokes and slices a real human brain).  Catholics remember sadly that Michael J. Fox was a huge proponent of clone-and-kill stem-cell research. How ironic that President Obama, who claims to want to “follow science” is funding precisely the kind of research that the medical community is abandoning. See Josh Brahm’s essay “9 Things the Media Messed Up About the Obama Stem Cell Story.”On the “Oprah” show, Dr. Mehmet Oz handles the brain of a 50-year-old...

    Michael J. Fox, whose advocacy ads created a stir in last fall's elections, will attend President Bush's State of the Union address next week as a guest of Rhode Island Rep. Jim Langevin. Both are staunch supporters of embryonic stem-cell research. Fox, 45, suffers from Parkinson's disease. As the 2006 elections neared, he appeared in television campaign ads for political candidates who support the research. "Congressman Langevin is a tireless champion for the advancement of medical research, and I am honored to join him next week at the State of the Union," the actor said in a statement. Langevin, who...

    WASHINGTON - Supporters of stem cell research are confident they will pass legislation expanding federally funded research in the next Congress - regardless of whether President Bush continues to oppose the move. Congress passed the legislation last year, but Bush killed the bill, exercising his only veto in six years. But the election results have changed the landscape, and Sen. Orrin Hatch believes supporters can round up enough votes to override a presidential veto, if it comes to that. "I think we have the votes in the Senate to override a veto, and we may have them in the House....
  • The GOP debacle: Thank you, Rush Limbaugh

    Now that Republican senatorial candidate George Allen has conceded defeat in Virginia, the U.S. Senate, like the House before it, has been delivered to the Democrats. Pundits are poking through the entrails of the exit polls in search of reasons for the GOP debacle, and many are obvious: the fact of the seemingly intractable Iraq war; the fact that, for the past decade, Republican congressmen have allowed themselves to be seduced by the Dark Side of politics, and have thus abandoned their principles for perks and pork; the fact that, even with total control of all three branches of...

    MADISON, Wis. -- One last celebrity plug, several pep rallies, and even more meet-and-greets marked the final day of Wisconsin campaigning Monday. Gov. Jim Doyle, who is seeking to become the first Democrat re-elected governor in 32 years, welcomed actor Michael J. Fox to a rally in Milwaukee. Fox, who suffers from Parkinson's disease, spoke about the governor's support for embryonic stem cell research. Fox, who had to occasionally brace himself as he twitched, referenced remarks conservative commentator Rush Limbaugh made two weeks ago accusing Fox of not taking his medication before cutting ads for Doyle. ''I recently had a...

    This just in: Actor and stem cell research activist Michael J. Fox has endorsed Democratic nominee Jerry McNerney of Pleasanton for congressional District 11. McNerney is in a tight race with GOP incumbent Rep. Richard Pombo, R-Tracy. Fox has been actively campaigning this year with the Democratic Party for embryonic stem cell research. Pombo, along with many conservative Republicans and President George W. Bush, oppose the practice because it involves the destruction of human embryos.

    JEFFERSON CITY, MO. — Michael J. Fox hopes that research on human embryos will help him overcome Parkinson’s disease, but new scientific findings may give him pause. As controversy raged over the actor’s TV ads promoting Senate candidates who back the embryo-killing research, scientists came out with new findings — research using human embryonic stem cells to treat Parkinson’s disease produce tumors in research animals. Dr. Steven Goldman and a University of Rochester Medical Center team, in a study released Oct. 22, showed that symptoms of the disease decreased, but tumors grew in the animals’ brains, according to the report...

LOUIS, October 30, 2006 ( - Actor and Parkinson's sufferer, Michael J. Fox, has responded to accusations that he either acted his symptoms or that he deliberately went off his medications for an ad supporting Democrat Senatorial candidate Clare McCaskill. In an interview with CBS' Katie Couric, Fox unloads a bombshell on the pro-life movement saying that there has been little opposition to in vitro fertilization which has created the "spare embryos" so...
