Please note: This is an editorial columnist position, NOT an op-ed columnist position. That means different things at different newspapers, but according to Newsday, in this case it means the opinions are unsigned, i.e., anonymous, and are a consensus of the editorial board, which includes editorial writers, editors and the publisher. So, the job is not quite as open to individual expression as an op-ed column, but still powerfully influences public debate.
