Same editorial appears in other states in newspapers owned and apparently operated by a Ogden Newspapers. If it's a "canned" editorial don't mislead your local readers that it is an editorial opinion by a 'local' newspaper. Or have you confused Northern New York with West Virginia where this editorial also appeared?

good point made by hidebound.why not identify the person who writes the editorial, and then we will know who to blame for being out of touch, or blatently biased. in all fairness petey does hit the nail on the head, but not often

This particular editorial is a collaboration: It originated with one of our sister papers and was made available throughout the Ogden chain, but then I reworked it a bit for the Enterprise. There are some differences from the others you saw.

It is an editorial position by the Enterprise — no misleading at all. We stand by it.

An editorial is the voice of the newspaper rather than the voice of a single person, which is why most newspapers don't have bylines. Most of our editorials are written locally, by me or the publisher, but they can also be written by the owners of the paper, which is perfectly legitimate.

Those you always want to know who's writing might consider identifying themselves in online comments forums like this one.

Only a person can have an opinion. Corporations, like a newspaper, are mindless fictitious beings. Any opinions expressed therein represent the viewpoint of the ownership regardless of who actually composes it.

So says the supreme court but I disagree. Corporations are people in the same way Frankenstein is a person, created by a people, directed by people but lacking morality and any other human trait that fosters community. I think I'm preaching to the choir, but aren't we all.
