Reporter/columnist combo especially big in sports--Miami Herald exec

  • Miami Herald Executive Editor Anders Gyllenhaal on reporter/columnists:

``There are things you can get across in a reported column that are different from a news story, which is basically a description,'' he said. ``The difference is

  • where there is a lot to say between the lines.''...
Perhaps the drift into reporters writing opinion
  • is part of a larger trend in which technology will make the Herald's battle to remain interest-free irrelevant. By weakening the advertiser-supported business model for news, the Internet may be ushering in a return to the media being subsidized by political parties and others interested in imparting a point of view, as in the 19th century. But until that happens, the Herald and all news media need to think twice about what they are doing with your trust."
