Al Diamon on media ethics....

University of Maine at Machias economics professor Jonathan Reisman, a former Republican congressional candidate, is preparing to escalate his conflict with the Maine Public Broadcasting Network.

The majority of Mainers are unaware of the huge funding used by the enviro groups to further their cause.

This bill needs to be approved.

As a tax funded entity MPBN should be bound by law to disclose sponsorship of programming.
