What is the impact of a free press? Here’s why longtime Lebanon County resident Mary Huber donated to our Civic Impact Reporting Fund:


The term “free press” is bantered around frequently. But do most know the true impact of what a free press means? Or better yet, what the impact would be if it disappears; especially local press like LebTown.

Local newspapers, since their inception, have been watchdogs over issues that affect the communities they serve. Questioning those who govern in these communities informs the public and helps to safeguard our democratic way of life.

Hedge funds acquisitions of local newspapers have been disastrous to the vitality of a free press by decimating staff which, in turn, limits the ability to report on meetings, whether they be school board, county commissioner, city council, township supervisors and the list goes on. Who will be the watchdog?

I may not agree with the bent LebTown takes at times, but the mere fact that I can disagree and my disagreement will be published strengthens the concept of a free press. Thank you, LebTown for persevering and being the watchdog for Lebanon County.

– Mary Huber
