    I’m glad this show was finally cancelled. They reported fiction… opinions and nothing more… trying to convince the public that it was fact.

    My mother watches it every now and again and while I’m sure it’ll be missed by the viewers, at the end of the day it’s a Hollywood “news” program just like any other. Just turn the channel and you’ll find one to watch.
