According to Michael Moore, he was censored more on his stint at Fox than he was at NBC. Moore wanted to do a bit referencing the show's move from NBC to Fox. It would show Moore being rescued from NBC headquarters by helicopter and brought to Fox headquarters. Fox turned down the idea because they were afraid of offending NBC. Moore also wanted to do a segment in which a Civil War reenactment group would reenact the bombing of Hiroshima, the Fall of Saigon and the 1992 Los Angeles riots. Fox turned it down stating it was "a downer". See more »

He is notorious for his hypocrisy on the "working man" (few if any walked away from this show saying that it was a good "working experience") and all in all, a one-trick pony who has since fallen deeply, deeply in love with himself and made some of the most insensitive remarks about 9/11 on record. An entertaining show, yes, but only because of the real talent involved (I'm thinking Janeane Garofalo and a few others). C
