Editor's Note: The posting of this video by MPBN troubles me. I've had many off-the-record conversations with MPBN reporters over the years. Some of those conversations happened just prior to going on air. I have never made public the contents of any of those conversations. Neither, as far as I know, have any of the MPBN reporters. Does MPBN's posting of this off-air video mean such courtesies are gone? Does that mean anything said by and to MPBN reporters off-air is fair game for public posting? Yes, Paul LePage needs to be wiser about what he says in these situations. However, I think reporting this incident and now making the video available is pretty cheesy.
