> That's not really the job of newspapers. Newspapers are supposed to accurately and impartially report the news.

I think you just made that up. According to who?

I read newspapers with movie reviews, play reviews, comics pages, advertising, news analysis, car reviews, industry analysis, foreign affairs analysis, etc etc etc.

Newspaper reporters win Pulitzers for their original research, investigation and analysis.

God forbid if newspapers should ever merely "report the news", it would be a sad day.

Reviews are always presented as reviews though. There's a personal element in most of those.

Analysis usually is either a summation of another publication (with citations) or is an Op-Ed.

Investigative journalism is pure news.
