I'm a reporter and once one of my editors said "There's no such thing as good writing, just good editing." I wanted to punch him very hard.
Ha. Going from 'web intern' in the news room to 'new media' developer at the newspaper's sales & printing building across town, I got to hear the real bottom line, straight from the top folks in Denver: "Articles are just there to fill in the space between the ads." Tip of the iceberg, really.
You don't know shit, people don't buy papers to read fucking ads.
By any chance was it the Rocky Mountain News? I worked for one of their other papers and those motherfuckers are straight scumbags who should be banned from the news business
People still buy papers?

Were I an editor, I would do this daily just to fuck with English majors and lawyers who write shitty novels. Yes, I'd fuck with the pretentious and the pandering, both at the same time. Mua ha ha ha ha. Were the publishing company truly evil, they'd let me loose on the fantasy and sci-fi writers.

Editors are like manager - 50% completely useless and 50% completely in the way of people who want to get shit done.
