App-Ed

This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

The App-Ed bureau (short for Appalachian-Editorial) features opinions and editorials for the Appalachian Independent. These two content areas are distinct.

Opinions are those registered by readers as well as our own staff and citizen journalists in the form of letters to the editor and commentaries (longer letters) from readers, and in the form of columns provided by staff or contributors.
The opinions expressed in either case are those of the writer alone.

Editorials are the position of the Appalachian Independent itself, as determined by the editorial board (#HYPERLINK TO THE MEMBERS OF THE BOARD#). This is where AppIndie states its position on the issues of the day, based on our own reporting or other news sources. While we will always strive to maintain the highest degree of objectivity and balance in our news reporting, the Editorials allow the AppIndie staff to register our collective opinion, independent of the news bureau. In essence, this is where the paper can prod or applaud, encouraging public bodies to take a particular action, for example, or objecting when they pursue a course of action we oppose.
