No TV Coverage in Maine Until "Bar Harbor is under water"

Michael Palmer, the general manager of television stations WVII and WFVX, ABC and Fox affiliates in Bangor, Maine, has told his staff  that when “Bar Harbor is under water, then we can do global warming stories.” Palmer said he wanted no more stories broadcast on global warming because: “a) we do local news, b) the issue evolved from hard science into hard politics and c) despite what you may have heard from the mainstream media, this science is far from conclusive.”

It’s not bad enough WVII doesn’t have any viewers left anyway, but they (they meaning Michael Palmer, who seems to about as disconnected from the world around him as Gerry Palmer does), but they have to make this proclamation?

Seriously, guys. Turn off the lights and go home. WVII doesn’t have any credibility left anyway. Tear down the transmitter and pack your bags. You’re done.

It appears that will also be about the time they will be providing viewers with a digital signal we can actually receive!!
