What, are you accusing me of writing an editorial?!
Seriously though, you actually paid me a compliment.
I was a little undecided whether to mark it as an editorial or not, because of the large quantity of commentary and analysis in it. However, I didn't, because an editorial would tend to look at a general triend, giving examples of issues that are part of that trend. However, this article is about a specific story (extortion racket over unproven 'piracy' losses) so it comes in as a news article. The line is indeed blurred though, as I've said on many occasions.
What people don't seem to realize, when they disparagingly say "editorial" is that an editorial actually takes much more time and effort to write than a straight news post and has a lot more content in to chew over for the reader. Plus, our dear reader needs a longer concentration span to take it all in, too, ahhh.
