    They left because management was refusing to report what they thought was important news about environmental issues facing Mainers according to what I have read.


    I don't really care what issue prompted their leaving.

    What I know is that they are heroic for deciding NOT to be purveyors of PROPAGANDA (regardless of what kind of propaganda it is)

    You should really do some research before jumping to ridiculous conclusions.

    They quit because the management refused to do a story on climate change - not because "they got tired of being Obama fluffers".
