Maine Guv To Schoolchildren: 'Newspapers Are My Greatest Fear' In The State | TPM LiveWire

Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) on Friday warned students at an elementary school that newspapers represent a menace to the state, the Bangor Daily News reported.

“My greatest fear in the state of Maine: newspapers,” LePage told students at St. John Catholic School in Winslow, Maine. “I’m not a fan of newspapers.”

The Daily News noted that it's the third time that LePage has publicly spoken ill of newspapers, and the second time he's done so in a school.
