Maine Governor LePage Pines For End Of Print Journalism,, His IQ Shows, Again

July 6, 2017

It is so easy to spot the ones with an IQ just below Dolly Parton’s bra size.  Maine Governor LePage is one of them.

In the radio interview, LePage reiterated his disdain for the media, in particular newspapers, saying “the sooner the print press goes away, the better society will be.”

His office didn’t immediately respond Thursday to further questions about the governor’s comments.

Katz said the governor was out of line.

“The governor’s suggestion that society would be better off without a free press ought to scare the hell out of anyone even vaguely familiar with history,” he said.

LePage’s contempt of newspapers is well documented. He previously declared that he doesn’t read newspapers and once joked about blowing up a newspaper building. In April, he vetoed a bill requiring legal notices to be published in newspapers, saying the bill props up a “dying, antiquated industry.”
