Here’s my argument about why (esp post Trump op-ed debacle) publishers should consider separating opinion and news content onto separate domains and brands. https://t.co/Qlcd1D54Jn
Core points: 1. Journalism is (in part) a set of important norms about how to relate to facts and the truth, but the public doesn’t understand those norms. Mixing content that follows them with content that doesn’t is a big source of confusion.
2. This didn't matter as much when there was an "opinion page." Now all content is atomized and looks the same in a feed. Different formatting for op-ed articles isn't enough of a cue to register with most readers.
