A video of a group of reporters with disabilities speaking with some of the top names in politics has gone viral on the Internet, and it's no surprise.

In the tense, analytical weeks before the November election, the clip inserts some much-needed warmth and humor into the dialogue.

Created by the group "How's Your News," a trailer for the film "Election 2012" shows the trio speaking with everyone from Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank to former presidential candidate Herman Cain at the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.

Some of the desired guests walk right by while others, like Geraldo Rivera and Michele Bachmann, seem warm and completely at ease.  The reporters are seen intermittently joking with Ann Coulter and Diane Sawyer, even catching a word with Republican nominee Mitt Romney.

According to its website, "How's Your News" was created roughly fifteen years ago at a summer camp for adults with disabilities.  After receiving positive feedback for a small, local interview, the group persisted, eventually landing a show on MTV in 2008.

They have been on hiatus for the latest several years, but decided to make a comeback for the 2012 election.

"The best convention coverage of this election season!" they promise.  Critical reviews of the group seem to agree.

"Cuts through the hype in the way the pros often could not," the New York Times wrote, and Entertainment Weekly called the work "hilariously empowering."

Here is the trailer for "Election 2012," the full video of which can be bought for $5 on howsyournews.com:
