The fine line of opinion

Thank you for your Voice of Reason piece on trust in the media. It is a sad day in this country when the people cannot trust a news source for basic information. I have no problem with a reporter/journalist expressing their opinion on a story or subject, as long as it is disclosed that it is their opinion. Somewhere/sometime, it seems we have crossed the line between straight reporting of a news story, and an opinion thrown in as if it were news. I turn to multiple sources for my news currently, and try to decipher straight news, versus opinion. I don't participate on twitter/face book for any source of news, as many these days do. I hope we can get back to a point where the public can get s straight news story when desired, and for those who want an opinion, they may also get that. My fear is that the line between an opinion and news/facts is quite blurred. I also thank you for your publication and read it every week.
