And That Leaves...?

Gerald flags the news that Blethen Newspapers (which owns Portland Press Herald, the Kennebec Journal, and the Morning Sentinel) is letting go more reporters. Including, apparently, all the scribes on the politics beat:

Al Diamon is reporting on his blog that Blethen Newspapers is laying off more staff, this time including their three political reporters, Jonathan Kaplan, Paul Carrier, and Kevin Wack...

It is unclear just who will be covering political events throughout southern Maine.

We've had our issues with Blethen coverage from time to time. But this is still pretty terrible news.
