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 »

NBC wouldn't let them say "condom", but would show a violent movie like "Dirty Harry"
23 April 2007 | by lee_eisenbergSee all my reviews

Apparently, when "TV Nation" debuted, Michael Moore decided that since we supposedly freed Kuwait in the Gulf War, to see how free they really were. That was just a start to his quest to expose the radical right for what it really was. The Republican seizure of power a few months after the debut naturally gave Moore more (sorry for the pun) material that he could have ever dreamed of.

Look, I know that the right wing likes to claim that Michael Moore lies about everything, but from what I can tell, they still claim that Saddam Hussein ordered the 9/11 attacks. They're just bitter that "Bowling for Columbine" won Best Documentary Feature and that "Fahrenheit 9/11" won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. As far as I'm concerned, Michael Moore speaks for world opinion.

Anyway, I totally recommend this TV show. Also read Michael Moore's books and Al Franken's books to learn more about these topics.
