What's On?: Our America With Lisa Ling
One of the shows that I am obsessed with lately, is the incredibly fascinating docu-series, "Our America with Lisa Ling". The show, which is one of the staple shows on Oprah's OWN network, features Journalist (and former co-host on The View) Lisa Ling, as she travels all across America reporting on a wide range of controversial topics that are prevelent but often times ignored by society.
Now in it's second season, topics have run the gamut from transgendered life (an excerpt seen above), heroin addiction, amateur porn, pedophilia, polygamy, and faith healing. What I love about this show, and Lisa as a presenter, is that she shows you both sides of the argument and remains impartial for the audiences sake. Never allowing either extreme to be more correct or righteous than the other. At the same time, she has a non-judgemental manner about her that allows her to ask the hard hitting questions and get the truthful and sometimes shocking answers.
Anyway, give it a go. Sundays @ 10PM on OWN.
