N‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍UR703 Assignment 4: Opinion EditorialAn opinion editorial (Op/Ed) is derived from the fact that these essays appear in the section of a newspaper reserved for Opinion pieces. Outsiders, that is, people not employed by the newspaper, generally write opinion pieces. These can be local experts in a subject area, a local reader—civic or political, or a syndicated columnist. Keep in mind these are the personal opinions of the writer. Tips for writing an Opinion Editorial:These tips and pointers were provided by several national media contacts, including John Timpane, commentary page editor of the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Andy Mollison of Cox News Service. ?The nature of an opinion/editorial piece requires that it argue something: that something is or is not so, is or is not worthy, somebody should or should not do something. If you are not arguing any of theabove, an op/ed can also predict the outcome of certain events: what will occur if a political figure does or does not take action on an issue, etc. ?Op/eds MUST have a thesis. This sentence is what will be pitched to an editor to convince them to print your article.

The lead-in should encapsulate the idea of the piece and instantly engage the reader. Most editors judge introductions by this rule of thumb: the piece has less than 23 seconds to interest the reader. If your first paragraph does not grab them, they will not stick around long enough to finish reading the article. ?A good op/ed will offer proof that supports the opinion of the author. Proof can be introduced in the form of statistics (with a webpage or other resource where they can be checked), expert testimony (with the book and page number where they can be found), or personal experience. Do not be afraid to let your personality show in your article. Remember that your piece is not just words on a page; people will read the article if they feel they are hearing from a real person they can identify with. Come up with a good last line. Come to some sort of conclusion, even if the conclusion is that the outcome of an issue will be uncertai‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‌‌‍‍‍‌‍‍‍‍‌‍‍n
