Reason number 789,451 why I will never, ever work for a newspaper, magazine, or any other kind of professional media: I'd have to deal with pissant editors looking for new ways to get a power-jones. The fact that some pub's house blogger will now have his entries be combed over by the nanny board, who will sift out anything "controversial" that might cause some twit the vapors comes as an apparent shock to Glenn Reynolds and others, but I'm not surprised. There's a reason I bought the Sunday edition of the Orlando Sentinel and tossed everything but the ads and the travel section, and it's not because of all the Visit Disney! propaganda either.

Editors need to get a life. Obviously, the print media is living in the Dark Ages. Delegate a little, for Christsakes!

Decide on inclusion as a stroy? Great.
Spelling errors? Check.
Grammatical improvements? OK.
Change content/fabricate to make a better story? Go work for Reader's Digest, you putz.
