Journalist Eddie Burkhalter did what few in our business will ever do.
Burkhalter quit his job on at The Anniston Star in November on principle because the newspaper wouldn’t allow him to pursue a story about allegations that former Star Publisher H. Brandt Ayers spanked some of his women employees over the years.
As a former Star reporter myself, I know these are more than allegations. My wife, Veronica, was actually a victim of such an assault.
