Mayor Virg Bernero of Lansing delivered a withering attack yesterday on a hapless Fox News presenter after listening to him argue that auto workers need to give up more of their benefits and more of their pay. Bernero correctly pointed out that while Republicans are arguing that Wall St executives need to keep their bonuses, working people are being asked to take big cuts while making a fraction of the money. Bernero could barely contain his outrage and lashed out at Fox News for contributing to the 'race to the bottom' where American workers are forced to compete with third world workers in the name of corporate capitalism. It's an epic beat down, and an instant classic. Well done Virg Bernero:
