Op-eds are opinion pieces written by members of the public that typically are published in a news outlet’s editorial section. Newspapers, magazines and other news publications regularly run op-eds to ensure they present diverse opinions on topics of importance to readers.
Media alerts are one-page announcements of an upcoming event, intended for journalists, not the public. Their purpose is to convince reporters that this event is a genuine news story worthy of coverage and inviting them to attend.
Press Releases are an official statement issued to newspapers giving information on a particular subject/event.
