AP Byline Strike: Copy Editors Give Thanks


Copy editors are my favorite people. From a reader who is one:

Funny. Most newspapers (including the one I work for) are doing everything possible to cut costs and that means shrinking the size of their newspapers. … Given the shrinking inches available for stories, the first thing I lop off is the byline on AP stories. So if they are withholding them, I’m one copyeditor that thanks them for making my job easier :)
