Editing that can harm

A thoughtful piece by Dayton Daily News reporter and blogger Scott Elliott on how newspaper bloggers and editors can avoid strangling each other.

“The instinct for many old school editors is require blogs to be read by a line editor in a fashion that bears at least some resemblance to the way newspaper copy is edited. Usually, this means the reporter “files” the blog post and it then waits for an editor to read and approve it before the post appears online.

This is a formula for blogging failure.”
