    Antiunion ad campaign in Detroit's face today - BY KORTNEY STRINGER, Detroit Free Press
    This morning, local TV viewers will hear eyebrow-raising accusations about union practices.

    "I think it's great my union dues are going to politicians I don't even like," says a man portraying a plant worker in a new ad, while an African-American man playing a construction worker proclaims with a smile, "I really like how the union discriminates against minorities."

    The commercial, airing today during "Fox 2 News Morning," is part of an aggressive $5-million campaign by the Center for Union Facts, a Washington, D.C.-based group that won't disclose its financial backers.
