Michael Kilian Burlington Free Press Published 7:02 AM EST Nov 26, 2018 One of the most exciting and challenging aspects of delivering news, insights and video at BurlingtonFreePress.com is that changes in technology and audience behavior require ongoing innovation and adaptability on the part of our journalists. A new such innovation emerges the middle of this week, a reflection of how you, the online reader, look for and find information of value to you. Innovation isn't anything new, really. Even print newspapers have changed, too, since the Free Press began publishing as a weekly paper nearly two centuries ago. It's just that print newspapers saw change occur at a relatively glacial pace.

close Video Lanny Davis: Michael Cohen's crime is Trump's crime On 'America's Newsroom,' the attorney for Michael Cohen says there's 'no question' that President Trump committed a federal crime by directing and coordinating hush money payments by his client. Michael Cohen lawyer Lanny Davis on Wednesday mistakenly promoted a nonexistent website where he said supporters could donate to his client's legal fund -- but the site didn't stay dormant for long. It now redirects to President Trump campaign website donaldjtrump.com, which urges visitors to contribute to re-elect the president and "Make America Great Again." "I know that when [Cohen] retained me, as recently as yesterday, he's committed to telling the truth, and we've actually set up a website with the name 'truth' in it, called michaelcohentruth.com," Davis told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Wednesday.
