(Newser) – Matt Damon is being heaped with Internet love after a video from the weekend's Save Our Schools march went viral. Damon, interviewed by the libertarian Reason.tv, took issue with the reporter's view that "job insecurity" is what causes him to work hard as an actor—and that more job insecurity could motivate teachers to work hard, too. Watch his smackdown in the gallery, and make sure to stick around til the end for arguably the best line, which he hurls at the cameraman. (When you're done, click to watch fellow actor Mila Kunis engage in her own reporter smackdown—in Russian.)
