Maine’s Humble Farmer, booted from the state’s public radio network after refusing to tone down his political rants, is mounting a return to broadcasting via public-access TV, reports the Kennebec Journal. The Farmer, whose real name is Robert Skoglund, has said that 28 stations plan to air his show or consider it. “I see public access TV as one of the last bastions of free speech, and I really disagree with what happened to him,” said a manager at one station.
