The difference between a corporate chain paper and the Anniston Star

Anniston Star
“A corporate publisher is a manager dangling at the end of a long corporate chain; he or she either doesn’t care or can’t act independently,” writes Star publisher H. Brandt Ayers, who is celebrating 50 years in journalism. “I care, deeply. I was born here.” PLUS: “A succession of dimwits, adjustable dumbbells, demagogues and disappointments” in Alabama politics.
> Earlier: “The Star is a small paper that packs an outsized punch”
