see what the press has to say about Opinion in a Pinch
Founded by former Roanoke Times editorial writer Chris Trejbal, Opinion in a Pinch offers a unique service—“professional, cost-effective, custom commentary”—to a unique clientele: understaffed editorial boards. It might seem a narrow niche. But in an age of ever-shrinking newsrooms still charged with producing a traditional print newspaper—and a traditional editorial page—Trejbal has found a real market.
“Last month, an unusual disclaimer began popping up below select editorials in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. ‘This editorial,’ it read, in parentheses, ‘was commissioned from freelance editorialists and edited by the Post-Dispatch editorial board.’ Attentive readers had some questions. So did Jim Romenesko, the longtime media blogger. And soon enough it came out that the outsourced editorials had come from a little-known Oregon-based company called ‘Opinion in a Pinch.'”
