Responsibly, sure... that's the difference between an editiorial and a simple news post. As a writer, columns that delve into your personal feelings should be included in an editorial column. Think of it if the news you were watching on tv differed 100% from your own views...since you simply want to catch the news w/out the spin, are you endagering the news from their freedom to express their own feelings?

As a news post, news is all that's needed. If you have an opinion, and apparantly you have a strong one in this case, feel free to write a column...

Do you see the difference, and why, as a source of legitemate information, you bear a journalistic responsibility to keep your personal opinions from tainting the news?
