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 »

Funny until you think about it
6 April 2002 | by (Terra) – See all my reviews

I saw some of the early episodes of TV Nation and thought at first it was really funny, but it got old quick. Some of the pranks, such as banging a dumpster at midnight outside the home of the guy who made dumpsters, just to let him know how the rest of us feel, are more mean spirited and juvenile than funny.

One thing that always stuck in my mind was an episode right after the 1994 elections when Congress changed hands. Moore was making remarks like people were tired of politics and America was a place where people wanted to shoot their guns and be left alone, with footage of him at a trap shoot, only later it I found out Moore is extremely pro-gun control--but then if you want to appear to be a crusader for the working man I guess you have to pretend a lot of things.

Moore seems to have based his entire career on knowing that businessmen and professionals on camera are going to try to politely circumvent controversial issues, and pushing it as far as he could get. I really wonder how Moore would feel if someone did a "Roger and Me" on him and how he would feel being on the spot--but wait a minute that did happen and he wasn't too happy about it.
