Restaurant owner talks about Covid shutdowns (video)

In this 9½-minute video, a Michigan restaurant owner interrupts a live local TV news broadcast to air his grievances about that state’s indoor dining closure, and the reporter lets him talk. What he gets isn’t a mindless rant; instead, the man says, “I can’t do this alone” when other businesses are allowed to remain open. He also complains about government helping big companies but not little guys like him. The narrator uses the incident to make his own point about the role of journalists in public debate. I think the video is worth watching.
