Lansing Mayor Slams Fox News Hack

The Mayor of Lansing, MI, Virg Bernero, defends the besieged working class and confronts Fox News on their hypocrisy over bailouts.


The Wall Street and business interest backlash against President Obama’s
home rescue plan to help those facing foreclosure has dominated
mainstream media. In this interview with Greg Jarrett of Fox News,
Lansing mayor Virg Bernero argues for the rights of the middle class and
points out the double standard that allows Wall Street to receive a
bailout while American workers bear the burden of the recession.
