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 Birdland Acquisition LLC and is published Monday through Saturday.

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,[3] an accusation that the newspaper states is grossly misconstrued.[4]

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.
