The dire situation in which the U.S. auto industry finds itself has created a lot of national discussion, but for many the consequences are much more personal. It's one thing to see a panel of experts discuss the ramifications of bailing out an ailing auto industry on a cable news shows, but as we see in this video after the jump, it's something altogether different when you're the mayor of a town caught in the crossfire. Virg Bernero is the mayor of Lansing, MI and it's quite apparent that he's not content to let pundits shape the discussion about who needs to sacrifice more to save the auto industry. The Fox News anchor conducting the interview can't do much in the face of Bernero's indictment of what he sees as the double standard between the working man and Wall St. Sure, it's funny to watch a news man get manhandled like that, but it's also satisfying to see a mayor under siege refuse to back down. Follow the jump to see for yourself. Thanks for the tip, everyone!
