With all the controversy over media bias, it seems two journalists have finally taken a stand -- on air. The longest running news team in Bangor, Maine, resigned at the end of their Tuesday evening broadcast, to the shock of staff and viewers, later telling the Bangor Daily News that management prevented them from running a balanced newsroom.

Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio have been anchors at ABC affiliate WVII and Fox affiliate WFVX in Bangor for six years, but claimed that the owners and managers had been increasingly intervening in their newscasts over the last four, reports the Bangor newspaper.
