Show by Michael Moore
"TV Nation challenges the CEO's of major corporations to perform some simple tasks using their company's products in order to justify their huge salaries. We ask the chairman of IBM to format a disk, the chairman of Palmolive to wash dishes, and the CEO of Phillip Morris to roll a cigarette.
Who actually responds to direct mail mailings? TV Nation performs an experiment to see who would receive more responses—a young couple in need or Jeffrey Dahmer.
Cobb County, Georgia is the home of the "Republican Revolution" of 1994, the home district of House Speaker Newt Gingrich
whose political agenda calls for cutting fraud, federal spending, and getting big government "off our backs." TV Nation travels to Cobb and discovers Newt's district is the 3rd largest receiver of federal funds. Therefore, we try to get the government off Cobb's back by closing its federally-funded highway, their federally-funded schools, their federally-funded sewage system, and their federally-funded senior center. TV Nation meets the man himself, Newt Gingrich, at the 4th of July parade and encourages his leadership in helping Cobb relieve itself of the burden of federal funds.
Hate groups are on the rise in the United States. The more protestors try to shout them down, the more hateful they become. TV Nation believes it is time for a little tenderness and throughout "Love Night" attempts to love those who hate. We send a mariachi band to a Klan rally in Georgia. We send a chorus line to kick up some love at the Aryan World Congress. A gay men's choir serenades Senator Jesse Helms outside his bedroom window. And pro choice women bring flowers and create a garden at Operation Rescue headquarters."from the archive
