Editorial
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An editorial, leading article (UK), or leader (UK) is an opinion piece written by the senior editorial staff or publisher of a newspaper or magazine or any other written document. Editorials may be supposed to reflect the opinion of the periodical. [citation needed ] In Australian and major United States newspapers, such as the New York Times[1] and the Boston Globe,[2] editorials are often classified under the heading "opinion".[citation needed ] Editorials may also be in the form of editorial cartoons.[3] Typically, a newspaper's editorial board evaluates which issues are important for their readership to know the newspaper's opinion.[4] Editorials are typically published on a special page dedicated to them, called the editorial page, which often also features letters to the editor from members of the public; the page opposite this page is called the op-ed page and frequently contains opinion pieces by writers not directly affiliated with the publication. However, a newspaper may choose to publish an editorial on the front page. In most English language press, this is done only rarely and on topics considered especially important; however, it is more common in some European countries such as Italy and France.[5] In the field of fashion publishing especially, the term has been adapted to usually refer to photo-editorials in particular features with often full-page photographs on a particular theme, designer, model or other single topic, with or (as a photo-essay) without accompanying text.[6]
