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.
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

In the Sodomobile piece, there is a diagram of the U.S. showing that Tennesee is a state where sodomy is illegal, yet when Moore and friends arrive in Tennesee, Michael's voice over claims the exact opposite. See more »
An annoying busy body, not an advocate of social change
TV Nation was excellent and his movies / books lacked bias and stated a case using ill-known facts, based on this I was interested to watch 'The Awful Truth'. Unfortunately 'The Awful Truth' (TAT) is boring and uncomfortable to watch - Instead of stating a case and bringing it to the attention of the right people mr.moore creates scenarios that are in bad taste in order to create humour. The main example is where he takes a dying man to the CEO of his insurance company but only a lacky shows up and moore harrasses the poor lacky confronting him with a dying man even though its obvious that the lacky has no power to resolve the problem. Anywho, he comes across as an annoying socialist rather than a social activist and engages in publicity stunts for individual cases rather than genuinely searching for a cause to research for viewer interest.
