Detroit Mayor Laments Unfair Treatment From Local Media As City Teeters on Edge

Nero fiddled as Rome burned


With Detroit's fiscal woes simmering and threat of an Emergency Manager looming, Mayor Dave Bing said he wishes the local media would stop focusing all of its attention on the negative and show the Motor City some love. "Absolutely not," the 62ndmayor said emphatically when asked during taping of "Michigan Matters" if he thought the local media was fair in its coverage. "The national media has been better than our local media," he added.
