Trivia

Several segments were not aired due to controversial subject matter: - A segment about Fred Phelps and his anti-gay group "God Hates Fags" who protest the funerals of homosexuals. Moore confronts the group in a pink RV filled with gay men. The segment was released on the videotape compilation TV Nation: Volume Two (1997). Moore later confronted Phelps with the RV again in his show The Awful Truth (1999). - An interview with Christian abortion abolitionist C. Roy McMillan who declared that deadly force against abortionists, the Supreme Court and President Bill Clinton would be justified. NBC claimed they only pulled the segment because the airdate was during the holiday season (December 28) and promised to air the segment at a later date. But NBC later cancelled the show and the segment never aired. The US Secret Service investigated the tape of the interview. - A segment about small-size condoms was pulled because NBC feared it would "lose affiliates in the South" due to the repeated use of the word "condom". When the show moved to Fox, the network agreed to air it but later changed their minds. The segment was released on the videotape compilation TV Nation: Volume One (1997). See more »

Disgusting show
19 September 2018 | by tmnaarmsSee all my reviews

Moore is an ugly human - in his soul. Spewing lies and distortions while making himself rich criticizing others and pushing his sick agenda. His holier than thou attitude and perverted beliefs make a strong case for the sensorship he wishes on others. Being in the entertainment industry doesn't make you an expert on society and politics. In fact, judging by this ass, many are opinionated blow hards completely out of touch with most americans. Time to send Hollywood a message, let's change channels or turn it off and spend time with our families.
