Do yourself a favor and check out "This is Life" with Lisa Ling
2 December 2017 | by clrunchuckSee all my reviews

Lisa Ling is an excellent reporter! I have followed her career trajectory since she was first introduced on the View for a season or two. Not content to simply interview celebrities, she left to do some actual journalism. Oprah Winfrey wisely snatched her up and gave her a series: "Our America" which gave in depth portraits of some of the often hidden or marginalized populations in our country. This included heroin addicts, and women in prison. Any good reporter or someone who puts together a documentary, tries to give an objective and non judgmental look at their subjects. People aren't black and white and Lisa Ling has always manged to show a glimpse of people in their seemingly unconventional lives and let them tell their own stories. A good reporter though will ask questions (hopefully in a unbiased way), about the subjects and how they live their lives as a way to learn and not exploit them. I've always admired how Ms. Ling seemingly jumps right in and yet is unobtrusive, educating herself as well as the viewers. Her shows have always come across as thought provoking as well as entertaining.

When Lisa moved to C.N.N . for her "This is Life" series, I was pleased to see that the quality of the program continued with it's no hold barred approach. I am always educated by these glimpses of other lives that are presented with all the subjects portrayed in the episodes. I was hoping that when Lisa Ling moved to C.N.N. she would find a bigger audience because her program should not be missed!
