The Bennington Banner is a daily newspaper published in Bennington, Vermont. Established in 1841, the paper covers local, national, and world news. The Bennington Banner sells 7,800 papers daily with a penetration of 65% in Bennington.[1][2] It is distributed throughout Southwestern Vermont and eastern New York (Rensselaer and Washington Counties). The paper is owned by New England Newspapers and is published Monday through Saturday.[3]

In early 2007 the Bennington Banner came under fire from The O'Reilly Factor for allegedly not taking an editorial stance on a legal case involving child molestation,[4] an accusation that the newspaper states is grossly misconstrued.[5]

Freedom from Fear painting[edit]

A copy of the Bennington Banner is shown in Norman Rockwell's painting Freedom from Fear, one of the paintings in his Four Freedoms series.
