One of the most liberal bloggers in Maine has been hired as a “staff writer” at the Portland Press Herald.
Colin Woodward’s far-left views on everything from the Tea Party to the occupy movement to Paul LePage have been well documented here on AMG and elsewhere. (See: “Maine's Madman Governor Paul LePage Strikes Again” as just one example)
The paper’s Web site lists Woodard’s bio: “Colin Woodard has covered politics and elections for more than two decades, from Bosnia and Bucharest to Washington, D.C., Augusta, and Portland City Hall. He has written for a wide range of national and international publications and is the author of four books, including "American Nations," a history of North America's regional cultures. He joined the Portland Press Herald at the end of April and covers political finance and lobbying, among other things.”
What? Nothing about his regular contributions to the likes of “The Daily Beast” the Portland Phoenix and Washington Monthly? Strange.
