Today, the Burlington Free Press is part of the USA Today Network and offers local news coverage both in print and online. Free Press Media, a division of the Burlington Free Press, is a comprehensive media company that creates and manages online and print marketing campaigns for local and national businesses.

Non-subscribers are limited to five articles per month before they need to subscribe to see more content; the Burlington Free Press began as a weekly publication on June 15, 1827. It was created by lawyers Seneca Austin and Luman Foote in response to the 1828 presidential election cycle; the Burlington Sentinel, another Burlington newspaper, favored Andrew Jackson while the Free Press, under Austin and Foote, supported incumbent President John Quincy Adams. The format of the weekly Burlington Free Press was four pages, with five columns of copy on each page.
The paper itself was 18 inches long. The weekly newspaper published every Friday; the Burlington Free Press became a daily newspaper on April 1, 1848 in response to the invention of the telegraph that brought more up-to-date news to the Burlington area. The first telegraph message was received in Burlington on February 2, 1948. Editor DeWitt Clinton Clarke made the following statement regarding the telegraph:“We trust it did not escape the notice of our readers that our Saturday evening’s paper contained news from Ney York of that afternoon – half past two o’clock! The wonders achieved by the telegraph are incredible if one attempts to reflect on the subject.”The daily Burlington Free Press was published in the evening every day except Sunday to offset the leading Burlington morning paper, The Daily Sentinel. The weekly edition was continued on Fridays until March 29, 1923; the format of the daily Burlington Free Press consisted of one column of editorial, three columns of political and general news, half a column of state and local news and 100 words or less of telegraphic news.
15 columns were dedicated to advertisements and “uncalled for letters”, a list of people who had not collected their mail from the postmaster. The daily Burlington Free Press paper was not an immediate success, it had only 275 subscribers in its first year. The population of Burlington was 7,000 at the time. Compare this to the weekly Burlington Free Press which had a circulation of 1,200. Early coverage included letters from the battlefields of the Civil War, women's suffrage and prohibition. Under ownership of George Wyllys Benedict and his son George Grenville Benedict, the paper was and vocally opposed to slavery, the issue of the day. In 1868, the Free Press Association was formed and purchased the Burlington Daily Times, a daily morning newspaper founded by former Burlington Free Press owner and editor DeWitt Clinton Clarke after he sold the Burlington Free Press in 1853 to G. W. Benedict; the Burlington Free Press absorbed the Burlington Daily Times and was publishing both a morning and an evening edition.
In 1872, The Daily Sentinel, the Burlington Free Press’ major competitor in the morning newspaper market closed its doors. The Free Press ceased publishing the evening edition and continued as a morning paper in 1882. In 1890, circulation of the daily Free Press was 3,250; the Free Press installed the first Linotype printing press in Vermont in 1895. In 1900, circulation of the daily Free Press was 4,649; that increased to 7,366 in 1907, 8,569 in 1914 and 11,459 in 1922.

The Free Press stood behind Richard Nixon throughout the Watergate scandal. The Burlington Free Press merged with Gannett. Co. Inc. based in Rochester, N. Y. in 1971. The Sunday edition of the Burlington Free Press was introduced in 1975 and it became the first seven-day newspaper in Vermont. In
Supreme Court of the United States
The Supreme Court of the United States is the highest court in the federal judiciary of the United States. Established pursuant to Article III of the U. S. Constitution in 1789, it has original jurisdiction over a narrow range of cases, including suits between two or more states and those involving ambassadors, it has ultimate appellate jurisdiction over all federal court and state court cases that involve a point of federal constitutional or statutory law. The Court has the power of judicial review, the ability to invalidate a statute for violating a provision of the Constitution or an executive act for being unlawful. However, it may act only within the context of a case in an area of law over which it has jurisdiction; the court may decide cases having political overtones, but it has ruled that it does not have power to decide nonjusticiable political questions. Each year it agrees to hear about one hundred to one hundred fifty of the more than seven thousand cases that it is asked to review.
According to federal statute, the court consists of the Chief Justice of the United States and eight associate justices, all of whom are nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. Once appointed, justices have lifetime tenure unless they resign, retire, or are removed from office; each justice has a single vote in deciding. When the chief justice is in the majority, he decides. In modern discourse, justices are categorized as having conservative, moderate, or liberal philosophies of law and of judicial interpretation. While a far greater number of cases in recent history have been decided unanimously, decisions in cases of the highest profile have come down to just one single vote, exemplifying the justices' alignment according to these categories; the Court meets in the Supreme Court Building in Washington, D. C, its law enforcement arm is the Supreme Court of the United States Police. It was while debating the division of powers between the legislative and executive departments that delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention established the parameters for the national judiciary.
Creating a "third branch" of government was a novel idea. Early on, some delegates argued that national laws could be enforced by state courts, while others, including James Madison, advocated for a national judicial authority consisting of various tribunals chosen by the national legislature, it was proposed that the judiciary should have a role in checking the executive power to veto or revise laws. In the end, the Framers compromised by sketching only a general outline of the judiciary, vesting federal judicial power in "one supreme Court, in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish", they delineated neither the exact powers and prerogatives of the Supreme Court nor the organization of the Template:Judicial branch as a whole. The 1st United States Congress provided the detailed organization of a federal judiciary through the Judiciary Act of 1789; the Supreme Court, the country's highest judicial tribunal, was to sit in the nation's Capital and would be composed of a chief justice and five associate justices.
The act divided the country into judicial districts, which were in turn organized into circuits. Justices were required to "ride circuit" and hold circuit court twice a year in their assigned judicial district. After signing the act into law, President George Washington nominated the following people to serve on the court: John Jay for chief justice and John Rutledge, William Cushing, Robert H. Harrison, James Wilson, John Blair Jr. as associate justices. All six were confirmed by the Senate on September 26, 1789. Harrison, declined to serve. In his place, Washington nominated James Iredell; the Supreme Court held its inaugural session from February 2 through February 10, 1790, at the Royal Exchange in New York City the U. S. capital. A second session was held there in August 1790; the earliest sessions of the court were devoted to organizational proceedings, as the first cases did not reach it until 1791. When the national capital moved to Philadelphia in 1790, the Supreme Court did so as well.
After meeting at Independence Hall, the Court established its chambers at City Hall. Under Chief Justices Jay and Ellsworth, the Court heard few cases; as the Court had only six members, every decision that it made by a majority was made by two-thirds. However, Congress has always allowed less than the court's full membership to make decisions, starting with a quorum of four justices in 1789; the court lacked a home of its own and had little prestige, a situation not helped by the era's highest-profile case, Chisholm v. Georgia, reversed within two years by the adoption of the Eleventh Amendment; the court's power and prestige grew during the Marshall Court. Under Marshall, the court established the power of judicial review over acts of Congress, including specifying itself as the supreme expositor of the Constitution and making several important constitutional rulings that gave shape and substance to the balance of power between the federal government and states; the Marshall Court ended the practice of each justice issuin
Courier Journal, locally called The Courier-Journal or The C-J or The Courier, is the largest news organization in Kentucky. According to the 1999 Editor & Publisher International Yearbook, the paper is the 48th-largest daily paper in the U. S. and the single-largest in Kentucky. The Courier-Journal was created from the merger of several newspapers introduced in Kentucky in the 19th century. Pioneer paper The Focus of Politics and Literature, was founded in 1826 in Louisville when the city was an early settlement of less than 7,000 individuals. In 1830 a new newspaper, The Louisville Daily Journal, began distribution in the city and, in 1832, absorbed The Focus of Politics and Literature; the Journal was an organ of the Whig Party and edited by George D. Prentice, a New Englander who came to Kentucky to write a biography of Henry Clay. Prentice would edit the Journal for more than 40 years. In 1844, another newspaper, the Louisville Morning Courier was founded in Louisville by Walter Newman Haldeman.
The Louisville Daily Journal and the Louisville Morning Courier were the news leaders in Louisville and were politically opposed throughout the Civil War. The Courier was suppressed by the Union and had to move to Nashville, but returned to Louisville after the war. In 1868, an ailing Prentice persuaded the 28-year-old Henry Watterson to come edit for the Journal. During secret negotiations in 1868, The Journal and the Courier merged and the first edition of The Courier-Journal was delivered to Louisvillians on Sunday morning, November 8, 1868. Henry Watterson, the son of a Tennessee congressman, had written for Harper's Magazine and the New York Times before enlisting in the Confederate Army, he became nationally known for his work as The Courier-Journal emerged as the region's leading paper. He supported the Democratic Party and pushed for the industrialization of Kentucky and the South in general, notably through urging the Southern Exposition be held in Louisville, he attracted controversy for attempting to prove that Christopher Marlowe had written the works of Shakespeare.
He won a Pulitzer Prize in 1917 for editorials demanding the United States enter World War I. The Courier-Journal founded a companion afternoon edition of the paper, The Louisville Times, in May 1884. In 1896, Watterson and Haldeman opposed Democratic presidential candidate William Jennings Bryan over his support of "Free Silver" coinage; this unpopular decision upset readers and advertisers, many of whom pulled their support for The Courier-Journal. Kentucky voted for the Republican candidate in 1896, the first time in state history, local political leaders blamed the Courier. Only the popularity of The Louisville Times, which had no strong editorial reputation, saved the newspaper company from bankruptcy; the Courier supported Bryan in future elections. Haldeman had owned the papers until his death in 1902, by 1917 they were owned by his son and Henry Watterson. On August 8, 1918, Robert Worth Bingham purchased two-thirds interest in the newspapers and acquired the remaining stock in 1920; the liberal Bingham clashed with longtime editor Watterson, who remained on board, but was in the twilight of his career.
Watterson's editorials opposing the League of Nations appeared alongside Bingham's favoring it, Watterson retired on April 2, 1919. I have always regarded the newspapers owned by me as a public trust and have endeavored so to conduct them as to render the greatest public service; as publisher, Bingham set the tone for his editorial pages, pushed for improved public education, support of African Americans and the poor of Appalachia. In 1933, the newspapers passed to his son, Barry Bingham, Sr. Barry Bingham would continue in his father's footsteps, guiding the editorial page and modernizing the paper by setting up several news bureaus throughout the state, expanding the news staff. During Barry Bingham, Sr.'s tenure, the paper was considered Kentucky's "Newspaper of Record" and ranked among the 10 best in the nation. In 1971, Barry Bingham, Jr. succeeded his father as the newspapers' publisher. The Binghams were well-liked owners popularly credited with being more concerned with publishing quality journalism than making heavy profits.
They owned the leading local radio and television stations -- WHAS-TV, WHAS-AM, WAMZ-FM—and Standard Gravure, a rotogravure printing company that printed The Courier-Journal's Sunday Magazine as well as similar magazines for other newspapers. Barry Bingham Jr. sought to free the papers from conflicts of interests, through The Louisville Times, experimented with new ideas such as signed editorials. Bingham Jr. parted with tradition by endorsing several Republican candidates for office. In 1974, Carol Sutton became managing editor of The Courier-Journal, the first woman appointed to such a post at a major US daily newspaper. Under the leadership of C. Thomas Hardin, director of photography, the combined photography staff of The Courier-Journal and Louisville Times was awarded the 1976 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Photography for its coverage of school desegregation in Louisville. Barry Bingham, Jr. served as editor and publisher until he resigned in 1986, shortly after his father announced that the newspaper company was for sale, in large measure because of disagreements between Bingham Jr. and his sister Sallie.
In July 1986, Gannett Company, Inc. purchased the newspaper company for $300 million and appointed George N. Gill President and Publisher. Gill had been with the newspaper and the Binghams for over two decades, working his way up from reporter to Chief Executive Officer of the Bingham Companies. In 1993, Gill retired and Edward E. Manassah became President and Publisher. February 1987 saw
Green Bay Press-Gazette
The Green Bay Press-Gazette is a newspaper whose primary coverage is of northeastern Wisconsin, including Green Bay. It was founded as the Green Bay Gazette in 1866 as a weekly paper, becoming a daily newspaper in 1871; the Green Bay Gazette merged with its major competitor, the Green Bay Free Press in 1915, assuming its current title. The newspaper was purchased by Gannett in March 1980. In 1972, an internal labor dispute led to the creation of the Green Bay News-Chronicle by striking workers.

The Hattiesburg American is a U. S. newspaper based in Hattiesburg, that serves readers in Forrest and surrounding counties in south-central Mississippi. The newspaper is owned by Inc.. The Hattiesburg American was founded in 1897 as the Hattiesburg Progress. In 1907, the Hattiesburg Progress was acquired by The Hattiesburg Daily News; when the U. S. entered World War I in 1917, the newspaper was renamed the Hattiesburg American. The Hattiesburg American was purchased by the Harmon family in the 1920s and was sold to the Hederman family in 1960. Gannett Company acquired the newspaper in 1982. In the early 1960s, the Hattiesburg American spoke out against the development of the Republican Party in Mississippi; the publication echoed the state Democratic contention that the primary beneficiaries of a two-party system would be "the 920,000 Negroes who dwell here." The American denounced Republican leaders Barry M. Goldwater of Arizona and Nelson A. Rockefeller of New York, rivals for the party's 1964 presidential nomination, for their common membership in the National Urban League and the NAACP.
The American criticized freshman U. S. Representative Robert Taft, Jr. son of the late U. S. Senator Robert A. Taft of Ohio, for having remarked that "no segregationist belongs on a Republican ticket or in the party."In 2005, the Hattiesburg American received Gannett's 10th Freedom of Information Award for outstanding work on behalf of the First Amendment. In settlement documents filed in federal court in Jackson, the U. S. government conceded that the U. S. Marshals Service violated federal law when a marshal ordered reporters with the Associated Press and the Hattiesburg American to erase their recordings of a 2004 speech by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia at a high school in Hattiesburg. In 2009, publication of the Hattiesburg American was moved to Gannett's Clarion-Ledger facility in Jackson, Mississippi. In 2010, Gannett announced its intention to sell the 38,000 square foot building which housed the Hattiesburg American operations at 825 North Main Street, an agreement was reached with a Hattiesburg Commercial Realtor to sell the building.
In June 2014, the Hattiesburg American staff announced they would vacate the Main Street location and move their offices to 4200 Mamie Street in midtown Hattiesburg. In 2017, Nathan Edwards, President of the Hattiesburg American, announced that the Hattiesburg American would stop its seven-days-a-week print production and publish on three days a week, beginning April 5, 2017.
