Crazy. I don’t get the purpose of this, except that it makes for an interesting wordplay…

To change an “editorial” which is (according to Wikipedia) a statement by a news organization, expressing opinion …bla bla bla…
How can another one person change another person’s editorial? That is in essence changing what is being expressed as their opinion. I don’t get it.
Couldn’t folks just write in and express their own opinion, and not change someone else’s. Oh wait, those are called Letters To The Editor!
