Why do you need an editorialist?
I plan on eventually expanding out more into opinion type news articles. It's generally the same as blogging except the main differences is it's more about current events and requires a lot of documentation of liable sources.
For now the blog system offers an option for both, but I do plan to do more with news in the distant future. Granted nowhere near as detailed as ANN. Plus I would need an editor before I even begin to feel comfortable referring it as news.
