Michael Moore's view on what happened to the United States after September 11; and how the Bush Administration allegedly used the tragic event to push forward its agenda for unjust wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
Summer show that poked fun at TV's news magazine shows like "60 Minutes." Some of the interviews consisted of happy dogs on Prozac, following an Avon Lady through the Amazon, etc. Written by

According to Michael Moore, he was censored more on his stint at Fox than he was at NBC. Moore wanted to do a bit referencing the show's move from NBC to Fox. It would show Moore being rescued from NBC headquarters by helicopter and brought to Fox headquarters. Fox turned down the idea because they were afraid of offending NBC. Moore also wanted to do a segment in which a Civil War reenactment group would reenact the bombing of Hiroshima, the Fall of Saigon and the 1992 Los Angeles riots. Fox turned it down stating it was "a downer". See more »
NBC wouldn't let them say "condom", but would show a violent movie like "Dirty Harry"
Apparently, when "TV Nation" debuted, Michael Moore decided that since we supposedly freed Kuwait in the Gulf War, to see how free they really were. That was just a start to his quest to expose the radical right for what it really was. The Republican seizure of power a few months after the debut naturally gave Moore more (sorry for the pun) material that he could have ever dreamed of.
Look, I know that the right wing likes to claim that Michael Moore lies about everything, but from what I can tell, they still claim that Saddam Hussein ordered the 9/11 attacks. They're just bitter that "Bowling for Columbine" won Best Documentary Feature and that "Fahrenheit 9/11" won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. As far as I'm concerned, Michael Moore speaks for world opinion.
Anyway, I totally recommend this TV show. Also read Michael Moore's books and Al Franken's books to learn more about these topics.
