Sorry to give that impression. We have a team of editors writing and editing headlines each night. We generally write one headline for online and another print because they are different mediums. We invite anyone who would like to see the process and tour the newspaper to call to set that up. We have about 35 people in the newsroom and 150 in the entire operation.
Sounds like maybe you have just one person doing the job. Think that could be part of the problem?
I'll stick to mentioning the ones that really bug me, or the multiple ones in a day, and let it go at that.
Thanks for the catch. The headline is correct in print, but we send stories to online after one edit. The revisions are sent to online after the articles have gone all the way through the editing process.Of course, that doesn't excuse any mistakes making their way to print, but editing on deadline is a multi-step process. If you'd like to join the fun, we welcome your resume, work samples and references. Be ready to edit and write about 8,000 headlines a year under tight deadlines, among many other duties. It's a challenge but great fun.
I'd take her up on that offer, VA.
Last chance to have me write your headlines.
Just say the word...
You mean versus, right?
