In this cable show, muckraking director Michael Moore continues his war against all the wrongs committed by greedy businesses, the callous wealthy and opportunistic politicians that exploit the little person in society. To that end, we have his standard protest pranks, investigative reports and satiric games with the audience. Written by

The just released "Complete First Season of The Awful Truth" a wonderful collection of mini-documentaries not unlike Michael Moore's earlier films "Roger and Me" and "The Big One" and his old show "TV Nation."
Highlights include a man inviting his HMO to his funeral, and a bunch of caroling tracheotomy victims. Moore's very funny, very smart, and very willing to make jokes in bad tastes in order to make his point. And very often, he succeeds.
This show is at once hysterical, shocking, and very important. A must watch for fans of Michael Moore and social activism.
