Get silent treatment, turn up volume

Kudos to WCSH/WLBZ and to the Bangor Daily News. They are the only Maine media to report on First Wind’s stinging 4-1 defeat last week in front of the Board of Environmental Protection.

No other media in the state thought it was important to tell Maine people that the Bowers Wind project is dead. Among THE SILENT were the Portland Press Herald, the Maine Sunday Telegram, the Kennebec Journal, the Coastal Journal, the Central Maine Morning Sentinel, WMTW, the Associated Press, Maine Public Radio, the Lewiston Sun Journal, the Times-Record, the Journal Tribune, WMTW, WGME, WABI, WVII and WAGM.

So here’s what we’re doing. We’re taking the news to every state in the nation in which First Wind does business. From Maine to Hawaii, yessiree. Click on the image below to see the press release we just sent out to reporters and editors in Massachusetts. If the Maine media won’t get news of First Wind’s troubles to those who would be interested, we will.

ATTENTION, FIRST WIND: People around the country are starting to compare notes. The free ride's over.
