Uh, No (Part Two)

At the risk of introducing the proverbial expired horse to my proverbial fists, I have a familiar quibble with Leslie Bridgers's summary of the Maine House #126 contest between Kevin Crocker and Tim Driscoll in thise week's American Journal (sorry, no link).

Like the Press Herald article I flagged yesterday, the summary of each candidate is informative, save the explanation (or lack of explanation) surrounding Crocker's departure from his radio show on WLOB. To be fair, unlike the PPH summary, Bridgers's reference to the discontinuation of Crocker's show ("'You can only complain so long before you have to do something,' said Crocker, who has only recently left the radio show." emphasis mine) doesn't give the reader the false impression that Crocker's absence from the airwaves was his decision.

But, at the same time, it doesn't provide context as to why Crocker "recently left the radio show," which can be found here.

(P.S. The same disclosures apply to this post as my previous post on this subject, except a point of clarification: My father's contribution to the Driscoll campaign was a $5 check to help Driscoll qualify as a Clean Election candidate.)
