Trivia

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 »

I love Michael Moore
30 April 2000 | by (Columbus, OH) – See all my reviews

Michael Moore is one of the funniest guys I've ever seen. One can't help but love his style, even while disagreeing with what he has to say. As a stanch conservative, I find it amazing that such a liberal person and I could have so much in common.

TV Nation was one of my favorite shows for its brief lifespan. I especially enjoyed the episode where they lobbied for TV Nation day and the one where he visited Clinton's home town.

To Moore nothing is sacred, not even the leaders of his own political party and for this, more than anything else, I can admire him. He reminds us that life is no fun if we take things too seriously.
