4:33PM – Editors Are Not the Enemy

Posted on 23. Oct, 2008 by in Uncategorized

There’s a bit of a disconnect between what editors roles are in the newsroom.

Reporters think that they’re the enemy, but Dars of the Indiana Review says different.

“Editors are responsible for the look and tone of the paper,” she said.

David Cohn says that his type of journalism is different and questions whether or not he needs an editor. But Wendy Warren of Philly.com says that Cohn’s work sounds similar to that of the editor of a community paper. Imagine that.

Some, such as Larry Kramer, say that you need both.
