Homework Help: English: Writing: Opinion Pieces

by Emily McPherson

What do opinion pieces do?

The opinions included in the newspaper, are like extensions of letters, which give a more in-depth insight into a particular issue, by someone who has authority in that area. These opinions are generally articles which people have been invited to submit, and are hence paid for their contributions. In theory, the entire opinion piece should be that of the author, however I know from experience that the newspaper editors sensationalise the pieces (a lot), and in some cases can add in entire paragraphs which were never there.
