The Republican governor of Maine, Paul LePage, has decided not to speak to three of the largest media outlets in his
state — which means, of course, that he is refusing to speak to all of their readers (who are also voters). Fair enough. That’s his call. He is a partisan (by definition), and he believes the papers are out to get him, so he’s going to try to win the argument by not engaging.
Hmmm… let’s see how that works out.
My guess that is that the Portland Press Herald, the Kennebec Journal (Augusta), and the Morning Sentinel (Waterville) will all be in business long after LePage has been retired by the readers/voters.
Thanks to the AP’s David Sharp for staying on top of this. Here’s the Press Herald’s own account.
