Mr. COBLE. Mr. Speaker, many people often claim the media only shows what is wrong with America and not what is right about our great country. I am pleased to say that a new television program will air this summer that will be an uplifting, positive look at what is right about America.
The program will be known as TV Nation. It is a joint venture between NBC in the United States and the BBC in England. `TV Nation' will be different than most of the television magazine shows currently on the air. This show will be positive and upbeat and will not dwell on the negative aspects of today's society as so many of these tabloid journalism shows do.
I recently participated in an interview with Michael Moore, the host of the new show, and I am looking forward to seeing `TV Nation' later this summer. To support the program's goal of highlighting what is right about America and the world today, I am introducing a resolution declaring August 16, 1994, as `TV Nation Day.' The resolution, which I hope my colleagues will support, will praise `TV Nation' for creating new jobs in this country and improving our balance of trade, but more importantly, it will recognize the show's producers for allowing TV audiences in this country and around the world to see what is right about America, and that alone is a praiseworthy achievement.
