For the second season of The Awful Truth, host Michael Moore offers a slight change in format. Instead of opening each program with a monolog before a studio audience, he begins each show by greeting the viewer from Times Square. This street-level approach also allows for a number of impromptu interviews with whoever happens to be passing by. Although the format has shifted slightly, Moore's guerrilla politics remain the same. In one program he institutes a wallet exchange program in an African-American neighborhood. If wallets are day-glow orange, he reasons, police officers will not mistake them for guns and shoot innocent people. In another show, Moore travels to the Immigrations and Naturalization Service (INS) in an effort to prevent several illegal aliens from being deported. Each program is broken into sequences of sketches, short films, and visits to corporate wrongdoers. Targets of Moore's satire include the National Rifle Association (NRA), Congress in general, and well-known figures like Newt Gingrich and George W. Bush. As with Roger & Me and The Big One, Moore's unorthodox methods and unapologetic liberal perspective make The Awful Truth an anomaly of television programming. ~ Ronnie D.
