This is the same Maine media that has essentially participated in a blackout of the rather significant recent news that Maine's only publicly funded onshore wind turbine, that at UMPI, was destroyed in a fire. And certainly no coverage on the implications of this fire - that a fire like that during a drought on a remote ridge top could cause tremendous devastation to Maine's forests and fire departments would have no way of putting it out. And basically nothing from the Maine media exposing the overall fraud that is wind.
So again - the University of Maine's multi million dollar industrial wind turbine burns down and nary a peep, but some 8th graders participating in an industry event gets news coverage. Folks, we might as well have state run media as in the 1960's Soviet Union.
This is one reason we should not have monopolies. Does one man, Reade Brower's ownership of every daily newspaper in the state (and plenty of weeklies) except for the BDN bother you? Does anyone think the people of Maine are properly served when a single person controls such a large majority of the local news?
