    Let it Rip Weekend: Mayoral race and EM's 'dumb & lazy' comment

    Monday, August 5 2013 8:20 AM EDT2013-08-05 12:20:25 GMT
    We take on the race for Detroit Mayor and the controversial comments by Detroit's EM calling Detroiters "dumb, lazy, happy and rich."
    A new poll shows Mike Duggan leading in the race for Detroit Mayor. Could those dirty tricks against him actually be paying off in his favor? Duggan supporter and community activist Malik Shabazz thinks
On this edition we discuss this week's major developments at GM.  More than a dozen employees were shown the door (mostly executives) after the automaker revealed the results of its internal investigation into the ignition switch recall.  Also, the company introduced a new victim compensation fund that could reach into the billions of dollars.  So was it enough to satisfy GM's critics?  Joining us to discuss it is Joann Muller, the Detroit bureau chief for Forbes, WWJ Auto Beat reporter Jeff Gilbert and high profile attorney Ven Johnson.  The panel also sticks around to talk about incoming UAW President Dennis William's declaration that the union is finished giving concessions to the automakers.

Then we switch gears to a controversial gathering in Detroit later this month.  The International Conference on Men's Issues will take place at the Doubletree June 26-28th with extra security.  That's because the confab has received threats of violence from some who have called them a hate group.  Dean Esmay says there's nothing further from the truth.  He's helping to organize the event and says his organization simply stands up for men's issues against what he calls the abuses of feminism. Also joining us is Heather Dillaway, a professor of Sociology from Wayne State University, who says Esmay is probably misdirecting his anger.
