a statement broadcast on radio or television that presents the opinion of the owner, manager, or the like, of the station orchannel.
something regarded as resembling such an article or statement,as a lengthy, dogmatic utterance.
Ahh that misses my point. Perhaps I should have said I found some to be more insightful than others. Would that make you happy? I can think of one of the mods on here that regularly points out more interesting references in his posts than some of the writers.
sorry if I am being dense here, but I honestly do not understand your comment as a response to my inclusion to the definition of editorial. Since I don't see how the inclusion of the definition of editorial, "missing the point" of defining what an editorial is, I am going to assume this was offensive somehow. Did my inclusion of the definition somehow offend you?
It was not supposed to offend nor was I doing it to provoke an argument with you. Quite the opposite, actually. Not sure why but if the inclusion of the definition of editorial offend you, then I'm sorry you took it this way. It was not directed at you, especially since you seem to know the difference between article and editorial, per your own words "..the article is not an exact reporting of details. It reads more like an Op-ed with the emotive language.." You obviously know that difference and correctly identified DED's work as being editorial in nature (even if your Firefox browser did not label as such). So I am not sure, the cause for your subsequent response and why you feel the need to defend yourself, when there was no offense intended to be given.
or did I misunderstand your intent? You would not simply be trying switch paddles mid stream and switch one complaint for another until something sticks, are you? You would not be trying to intentionally offend DED, just for the sake of being offensive. right? Because that would not only be sad but some would probably call it trollish.
I'm confused. sorry. Whats your intent here?
