The New York Times Expands Online Opinion Section

By Chris O'Shea Comment

Apparently that new Op-Ed section the New York Times launched back in June is working, because the paper just announced that it’s expanding its Opinion section on the website as well. According to a company press release, the new content will be rolling out over the next few weeks, and will include:

  • Web-only op-eds
  • A blog from Andrew Rosenthal that examines what people are saying about the Times’ opinions
  • Short videos commenting on current events
  • A political opinion blog featuring content from┬áTimothy Egan, Charles Blow, Ross Douthat and Thomas Edsall

We’re particularly interested in Ronsenthal’s blog (opinions about opinions!) but the other features seem worth checking out as well. No doubt we’ll be hearing more about this as the features are launched, so we’ll keep you posted.
