Opinion in the Political Sphere: Introduction

This guide links selected opinion writers, columnists, scholars, journalists, and others whose opinions through their writing inform and influence Public Opinion.

Journalists, editors, writers, scholars who write and disseminate opinion pieces through the many media we now access play an influencing role in contextualizing news and information and contribute significantly to Public opinion.  This Library guide presents a selection of those people who through their positions contribute to the conversation and speak from a recognizable political perspective. This list is not intended to be all-inclusive but does represent voices across the American political spectrum.
