The MSM Rebels?

"Two local news anchors in Bangor, Maine resigned on air without warning over claims they were not allowed by upper management to pursue their ethical duties as reporters. Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio of ABC affiliate, WVII announced the move at the end of their 6 p.m. broadcast. The pair address viewers directly in a video recording of the broadcast. "We have designed a new set for you, which is coming in December," says Michaels, who was also the station's news director. "Unfortunately we won't be here to sit on it." In a report by the Bangor Daily News, Michaels and Consiglio describe a long-running stand-off with the station's management over journalistic practices." Interesting.
