  What does a Sports Columnist do?
A sports columnist is a writer whose primary job is to give his or her opinion on sports.
A sports columnist, who usually must work up from being a regular sports writer, is typically someone who has many years of experience – and therefore has developed a respected presence within a sports community to the point that his or her opinion is highly regarded among readers.
Because the job of a sports columnist is to give his or her opinion, sports columnists are often – rightly or wrongly – thought of as being rude or disagreeable.

 Online NewsHour: The job of a columnist -- August 24, 1998
Columnist Patricia Smith was forced out in June, after admitting that she had fabricated characters in her columns.
And in the cases of the columnists who have endured, they have all been terrific journalists, understand the difference between fact and fiction, and know that writing around something or making something up is not—it's not a privilege that comes with being a columnist.
There are columnists who work solely on the op-ed page, and sometimes there are columnists who cover specific areas of the world, whether it be the Pentagon or whether it be identified as a conservative or a liberal—some newspapers now you have column left, column right—try to give that kind of view.

 The mind of the married columnist
Greene, 55, is one of the biggest stars in the shifting firmament of newspaper columnists.
I met Bob Greene three years ago at the National Society of Newspaper Columnists convention in Louisville, Ky. Greene was the keynote speaker and said many inspirational things about using his platform as a columnist to help children abused by the system.
He spoke of the “columnist’s calling” as if it were a civic priesthood, a characterization many of us found grandiose and borderline laughable.

 Compare Prices and Read Reviews on Jeffrey Frank - The Columnist: A Novel at Epinions.com
Jeffrey Frank's humor in The Columnist: A Novel is witty and dark.
Frank's central character, newspaper political columnist and television commentator Brandon Sladder (his initials are almost certainly not accidental), is a smug, keenly ambitious man whose self-absorption leaves him oblivious to his hurting every person with whom he comes into contact.
Sladder even employs the justification that Will used when there was criticism of his behind-the-scenes involvement with a politician about whom he was writing: There is no conflict because different rules apply to columnists than to reporters.

 LA Times Dumps Liberal Columnist
Los Angeles Times columnist Robert Scheer was fired on November 11 after nearly 30 years at the paper, the last 13 as one of its most progressive political columnists.
In a published statement announcing op-ed page changes (11/10/05), the Times insisted that it is dedicated to "provid[ing] readers with a wide range of voices and perspectives," but in dumping Scheer, the paper has gotten rid of one of the few prominent progressive columnists in the country.
Scheer was also one of the first columnists to call for withdrawal from Iraq, in a November 4, 2003 column that presaged shifting public opinion on the issue--though his position is still hard to find among his fellow pundits.

What once was shocking soon became expected and, over the course of the twentieth century, gossip has become an integral component of mainstream journalism from which no one has become exempt—not even, as the world found out in 1998, the President of the United States.
The emergence of gossip columns and columnists as powerful new journalistic forces and voices during the early twentieth century would not have been possible without the creation of a new class of Americans—celebrities.
Some gossip columnists broadcast segments on radio and television.
