  1. Surely that’s what an editorial is – a perspective? That he has a column does not strictly speaking mean he ceases to be a journo. Sorry for the counter pedantry!

    Monsieur De La Van also does one or two journalistic articles in the Turbine, and it’s instructive to look at the comparison with those – there’s no overt opinion-making on his part in those, rather a more-or-less straight fair recounting of the facts. An op-ed piece is quite different – the writer takes a stance on some topic, often without too much in the way of fairmness.

    Would you consider Kevin Myers a journalist? I wouldn’t, and neither would most other people I suspect. Anyway, this is getting off-topic…
