The Awful Truth

Bravo, Fridays

The further the mainstream pushes Michael Moore away, the more tenacious he gets. He has been banished all the way to Bravo, and though his new show is not as slick as his last (TV Nation), it's even more hard-hitting. Moore bothers Big Business again, as he does when he invites Humana execs to the mock funeral of a man whose pancreas transplant has been denied by the insurers. It's unusual to find an angry liberal in this economy, but Moore makes a better case for the working guy than any politician out there.
