The Boston Globe Opinion

The Boston Globe Opinion team, led by James Dao, aims to provoke progress by showcasing important debates, creative solutions to tough problems, incisive and informed points of view, and evidence-based positions on political, cultural, and policy issues of the day.

Globe opinion content includes op-eds from columnists and contributors, Ideas features, letters, Op-Talks, cartoons, and editorials that represent the positions of the Globe editorial board.

The Globe Opinion team is separate from The Boston Globe’s news operation. Op-eds, letters, the Ideas section, and unsigned editorials are not produced by newsroom editors or reporters. Globe editorial board positions and Globe endorsements of candidates are made without consultation with the newsroom and without influence on their coverage of political races and candidates. This separation helps protect the integrity of both departments.
