The New York Times op-ed page turned 40 years old on Tuesday. The section started as a way for the paper to include diverse perspectives and opinions from writers and thinkers not already affiliated with the Times. NPR's Robert Siegel talks to Times op-ed page editor David Shipley about how the op-ed page changed journalism, and how the Internet has changed the op-ed page.
