Journalism Faculty Member Comments on Media Ownership

Justin Martin, a UMaine College of Liberal Arts and Sciences-Honors College preceptor of journalism, was quoted in a Bangor Daily News article about the news that financier Donald Sussman has acquired a larger share of Maine Today Media, the company that owns and operates the Portland Press Herald and other properties. Martin said he was less worried than some about the ownership trends in newspapers, but it is also troubling that a number of news organizations with powerful owners often don’t completely cover their owners’ business interests.
