A copy editor’s parting shot

by andybechtel

A Philadelphia Inquirer copy editor says goodbye to the paper he loves — and has some harsh words for its publisher. Here’s the gist:

It is my greatest hope that The Inquirer will continue to be a great
newspaper. But I fear that now the reporting staff will be too small. Who knows what stories we won’t have the time, space or staff to uncover? I fear the copy desk, which lost more than one out of four editors, will be too harried to do its job. And I fear for an institution beaten down by misguided ownership.
