Talking to Americans
Posted on Aug 17, 2006
In this Canadian TV series, a host asks everyday Americans how they feel about news stories that are, in fact, fake news. It’s played for laughs: But if you wonder how Bush’s version of reality went unchecked for so long, look no further than the people featured in this show.
Talking to Americans was a segment on the uproariously funny “This Hour Has 22 Minutes” CBC news/commentary show, in which Rick Mercer would go to the USA and ask Americans whether they believed that Russia should [give] the Chechens in Saskatechwan their freedom, or for help defending our national igloo, or for congratulations on legalizing insulin.
