A Hard Look at Times Editng in the Digital Era by Liz Spayd (the Public Editor), 2017



Layers of editing at NY Times: 

  • Backfielder: rewrite, check sources, question facts, look for holes
  • Copy editor: adjust style, catch grammar and typos, rework for clarity
  • Slot (head of the copy desk): Reviews, changes headlines as needed, may send to website or to print
  • News Desk: For larger, more significant stories, the News Desk reviews next. Sometimes forwards to the head of the Foreign section or the paper's top editors.
