Well, English Wikinews has what you are looking for by having an
Opinions namespace. See, for instance,

Given that we informally refer to it as "trollspace", I'm not totally
sure of the value of encouraging low-value, anonymous Internet
comments. We aren't craven pageview whores like our friends in the
commercial news website business who are quite happy to trade
intellectual standards (seriously, read a newspaper comment column)
for advertising money.
