Editor James Bennett's column: Be ready for whatever comes next


October is a month when newspaper editors often share their thoughts with readers on the importance of a free press and balanced journalism.

When I started as editor of The Anniston Star in September 2010, I wrote, “I hope our relationship mirrors a close friendship. We should be able to tell each other everything. The good, the bad and the ugly should not be off limits.”


Executive Editor James Bennett holds the "General Excellence" award The Anniston Star won in 2022 from the Alabama Press Association after a staff luncheon celebrating the honor.
