Ric Tyler, host of WVOM Gorge Hale and Ric Tyler Show, questioned Maine’s legacy and corporate media outlets Tuesday morning over their decision to avoid covering the growing scandal in Damariscotta.
Last week, parent Amber Lavigne revealed that the Great Salt Bay Community School (AOS 93) had secretly begun to transition her 13-year-old daughter into a boy without her knowledge or consent. The social transition the school started without her permission included school staff providing her with a chest binder and referring to her using masculine pronouns.
As of Tuesday morning, more than a quarter of a million people have read The Maine Wire’s reporting or watched the video of Lavigne’s emotional address to the Great Salt Bay Community School board.
Yet not a single newspaper or television outlet in the state has covered the controversy.
