Heads it is. You really should learn what opinion means, cause by the standard you’re using it would hit home pretty hard. In many of your comments you make a lot of claims, which you don’t always source, so apply your own standard to your own opinions, or learn that opinions are just a person’s personal opinion, and not a news article (which should be factual), a college essay (which has to be factual), or even something that is promoted by the site that published it. By stating in the headline its an op-ed, means this is only the author’s personal opinion and no one else’s. It also means that it cannot be held to the same standards as a news article cause it ain’t one, and it even told everyone that in the title, so calling it fake news like you did, and that you’re trying to justify would be a lie.
