Get rid off all the editors
by grzegorz.piechota
Excerpts:
Do we need them any more in the digital age? Of course, no!
Everybody hates editors and would feel a relief if they all go to hell.

Reporters hate - because editors sit the whole days at the office and do nothing but ask stupid questions to hard-working people on the beat.

Readers hate editors - because everybody can be a journalist now, but it is still harder to be an editor with a top-down authority!

Actually, there are some very thoughtful points made once the writer gets down to business.

For some reason I couldn't open the TinyUrl link. But I located the article here.

Good points to ponder.

I once worked for McClatchy @ THE NEWS TRIBUNE in Tacoma Wash. I worked their from april of 88 to may of 2001. in that time so many games were played out at the paper i just quite. Now i wonder how my retirement plan with McClatchy is going to do after they go under. I guess the money will be all gone for the retirement also.

I hope you weren't a writer for the paper.
