Opinion Articles in Print
Opinion articles in the news media are exactly that, the opinion of one person. As I read an Opinion piece in the Star Tribune that spoke of the upcoming elections I felt as if I was in an intimate conversation with the writer himself. He spoke of his belief in one of the candidates and went on about how he believed one would better suit the country than the other.
As Opinion pieces I found that that tone of the articles that I looked at seemed to vary as much in view as the names of the authors. It would seem logical that the authors would all have different ways of looking at different topics. But, with the liberty to say what one feels on a topic I also think that in the Opinion piece has the capability to give a very slanted authors views to the reader. Reader beware.
