Couple of dodgy headlines from Ireland
Here's a couple of contributions from over the Irish Sea to kick us off today. First, Robert Cullen, editor of the Sligo Weekender, ponders the wisdom of this headline. He writes: "Leaving aside the 'let he who is without sin cast the first stone' here's a headline from the most recent Sunday Business Post." Meanwhile the excellent Fleet Street Blues draws attention to yet another dodgy juxtaposition. Subbing basics. I will be covering all the potential editing perils and much more in a subbing masterclass for Press Association Training from June 7-10. If anyone feels they would benefit from learning a full range of subbing skills, from basic text-editing to page design, the details are here.
