The Birmingham Free Press is a free locally oriented newspaper with a focus on community, featuring local news, opinions and humor. We aim to enlighten citizens of the Birmingham Metro Area on the issues that affect them, and encourage everyone to speak up for themselves while listening to what their neighbors have to say.
such as Southside, Downtown, Homewood, Crestline Village and many others
are regularly featured, while other stories tackle larger issues of
the day, and a bit of humor is liable to be lurking around just about
while striving to maintain a balance of viewpoints, is committed to
honest and open discourse. It is quite possible, and perhaps preferable,
if at some point each reader finds his or herself challenged and perhaps
offended by something found within our pages. We feel that in order
to serve the community it is important to offer converging and divergent
viewpoints and opinions in order to stimulate real communication. Let's
get it out there for everyone to see.
We want to inform
and challenge the citizens of Birmingham and the Metro Area to take
a look at themselves and their neighbors. Though we will not rigidly
adhere to local issues, sometimes straying to national or international
topics, our main focus will return to Birmingham and how these issues
affect our city.
We are always open to your suggestions and opinions. Please feel free to write us, or email to opinions@Birminghamfreepress.com. Let us know what you think.Let us know if there is a story or issue which you would like to see us cover.
