Big news

Hello faithful readers,

It is my pleasure to alert you all of something that’s been in the works for a while now. Daniel MacLeod of The Free Press, USM’s student newspaper; William P. Davis formerly of The Maine Campus and I have soft-launched Maine Observer, an online newspaper for the great state of Maine.

The idea first came a few months ago, when Dan and I really got started with our own blogs. We thought we could grow stronger by combining efforts. Not long after, Will was brought on as our de facto Web guy.

The Observer is not fully launched yet, but we have begun posting to our first three columns.

  • Journalator will continue to offer news, commentary and analysis of Maine politics.
  • The Haul is a column on the economics of Maine and the lives of Maine’s working people.
  • MediaME will provide news and commentary on media and journalism.

The site is still a work in progress, so bear with us as we tweak our content and packaging to best service our readers. The Observer is currently seeking contributors and an Arts and Entertainment editor. To get involved or for more information, e-mail

Mario Carmine Moretto is editor of Politicator and a founding editor of the Observer.
