‘Editor’s note’ or editorial?

newnoteRomenesko reader Carl Sewall sent this clip from the Bagley Farmers Independent in Bagley, Minn.

“Saw this today. It’s an ‘editor’s note’ atop a story about the EPA regulating pollution on coal-burning power plants,” writes Sewell, news director at RP Broadcasting in Bemidji, Minn. “Not exactly what I would call ‘objective.'”

“Editor’s note: We print this article for the benefit of readers who might want to know how the EPA, through its rules created without legislative votes, can use dictatorial powers to impose unreasonable and counterproductive burdens on consumers of electricity.”

The story originally ran in Processing Magazine.
