Jan 03, 2013

Editorials historically came about as a means to let the average person know the opinions of the editors and publishers of newspapers and magazines.

Today 'editorial' and 'op-ed' are often used interchangeably to refer to any written piece expressing an opinion on the issues of the day, whether in a magazine, a newspaper, or a website.
