Assume the position that pop culture is history. A hundred years from now when the Longfellow or the Irving of 2105 decides he wants to tell history his way, history may very well show that Al Gore *did* invent the internet, that George W. Bush was the most articulate statesman the world has ever known and that Michael Jackson was really the only normal one among us all.

This show is very entertaining but should not be taken to be a serious history lesson. The host points out that a lot of what we are taught as true history is not true at all. But then makes the mistake of giving tidbits of "true" history that are...false. You should not put others down for telling false truth and then back it up with your own made up facts. So while this show is entertaining it is somewhat hypocritical. I would recommend watching the history channel. At least then you can do some of your own research without being subjected to the harsh language that serves no purpose in education or in humor in this setting.
