Wow! Journalists with integrity? That’s such a rarity these days. Two Maine ABC newscasters Cindy Michaels and Tom Consiglio surprised everyone when they resigned at the end of their newscast over what they claim is ‘unbalanced news, politically.’ While neither Cindy Michaels and Tom Consiglio would say which way they were told to slant the news, since it’s ABC you can pretty much figure it out on your own.
WVII – ABC7 anchors Cindy Michaels and Tom Consiglio ended their broadcast by quitting their jobs before they had alerted anyone in the newsroom about their decision.
At the end of the broadcast Michaels, the station’s news director, said, “And finally tonight, this will be Tony and my final show together here on ABC7. The last six years have been an interesting and enjoyable time for both of us as we have been the longest running news team in Bangor.”
Consiglio added, “Some recent developments have come to our attention, though, and departing together is the best alternative we can take.”
