Summary
Acclaimed filmmaker Michael Moore (Roger & Me, TV Nation), who The New York Times called, "insistent, persistent and far beyond embarrassment," is at it again with the show that was shut down by the mayor of New York City, got Moore sued by a wealthy industrialist, and landed his Corporate Crime-Fighting Chicken in Disney World Jail. Shot in his signature "guerilla video" style and replete with scathingly funny observations, the entire first season of THE AWFUL TRUTH is available now for the first time on DVD and VHS. See the adventures of Michael Moore and his People's Democratic Republic as they: bail Crackers out of jail, play "beat the rich," help Joe Camel find a new job, watch Lucianne Goldberg through the LucyCam and much more.
