Journalists vs. Columnists

Just a quick question. Do people not understand the distinction between a columnist who works for a news entity and an actual news reporter?

After the Arizona shooting I heard so many times about this news paper saying this or that network saying that.

The problem is that anytime an example was given it was always just one of their pundits saying something. People who are hired to give THEIR opinion, not do reporting or give the opinion of the network or newspaper.

I'm sure we can argue that FOX or the New York Times, to give two examples, have their respective agendas. But not one time that anyone made an accusation like this, did I ever see it backed up with anything other than the words of an opinion columnist or TV pundit.
