You hit the nail on the head here for me, and I am a solid product of coffee with the morning newspaper.

What happened to “Editorials” being a subset of the category “NEWS” (journalism)--

Editorials were clearly marked as opinion pieces, and there was no shame in that, because they had a name, and a clearly marked purpose, and therefore a place. You could generally trust that outside the Editorial section, you were getting the story with minimal bias applied.

Now EVERY story is an editorial.

This has to stop. It is so dangerous.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
