  •  That's not an individual signature (0+ / 0-)

    It's a statement that the editorial is in fact the institutional opinion of the newspaper as expressed by the editorial board. You can read the masthead and see who is on the board. But that doesn't tell you how any individual voted. At a larger paper, it doesn't even tell you who wrote the opinion (assistant editors and all).

    Except when a publisher invokes the "majority of one" rule, it is not the norm at either the collegiate or professional level for a single individual to write whatever he or she pleases and present it in the name of the newspaper. Clearly it's not the norm at UT either.

    The plural of anecdote is not data.
