David Kushma explains why editorials are not signed

While other major newspapers, like the Atlanta Journal Constitution do sign their editorials, David Kushma defends the Toledo Blade's stance. Some interesting tidbits:
===
There's a simple explanation, for those who are willing to hear it.

Our editorials aren't signed because they don't have individual authors. They represent the official opinion of The Blade as a newspaper, and the collective judgment of our editorial board.

'I'm Not Saying Your Mother's a Whore': How Fox News Censored Jon Stewart vs. Bill O'Reilly

Fox News has generously placed the full, unedited conversation between Bill O'Reilly and Jon Stewart online, so we can see precisely how unfairly and deviously Fox edited the interview in order to weaken Stewart's case: A lot!

Hateful Blade Readers

I recently had a letter of opinion published in the Blade. In it, I asked why liberals wanted us to butt out of other country's business (regarding Iraq and the Bush years) but now they want to get involved in rebuilding Haiti.

I have since received several hateful, profanity laced letters mailed to my home by liberal Blade readers who obviously didn't enjoy their morning breakfast after reading my letter.

This begs the question, why does the Blade list the name of the street an opinion writer lives on? What's the point?

A note to the hateful libs who sent letters to my home:

Who is Ellie light?...

Unless you've been under a rock all weekend....you know that the internet once again illustrates why the dinosaur media is dying...and why the liberals want to prop up a state media in it's place....

Who is Ellie Light?

That is a question that a number of newspaper editors are now asking themselves. Ellie Light not only seems to be a prolific letter writer, but also a great supporter of President Obama.

Obama has suspicious number of letter-writing fans named 'Ellie Light'

WASHINGTON -(Dow Jones)- Japan said it would loosen the rules of its car- buying incentive program so that more imports would qualify for the government- funded rebates, a change pushed by U.S. officials and auto makers who accused the program of an anti-American bias.
