All opinion, all the time

The Washington Post is summarizing editorial and op-ed commentary from a wide range of newspapers in a feature they call "The Editorialist".

Aggregation will become crucial for news operations that want to command a wide audience. The Post's feature (like Slate's old standby, "Today's Papers") uses a human journalist to aggregate; it's also done with minimal human intervention by using RSS feeds.

Whether it's local news or opinion, somebody's going to pull it all together for readers. Might as well be you.
