Types of Articles Within A Newspaper

Along with reporting news events, newspapers publish editorials, letters to the editor, opinion pieces written by well-known authors or individuals supporting a cause of action or their support or opposition of another's actions or proposals. Obituaries of people who die are also published. Many databases enable specific searches for these types of articles, and the articles are identified as opinion or editorial or obituary or death notice.
