The Solid Gold Copy Editor.
Riblet, Carl, Jr.
This book discusses the role of the newspaper copy editor on a daily newspaper and contains lessons instructing editors on how to prepare copy for print. The book is specifically designed to polish the skills of the already experienced newspaper copy editor, although a beginner will find the lessons useful and instructive. Contained in the lessons are samples of misleading headlines and poorly edited or wordy articles from national daily newspapers, the wire services, and other sources. These samples are reconstructed with a brief explanation of the problem and the solution. The contents of the book are divided into four parts: "The Method,""The Newspaper Headline,""How to Edit the News Story," and "How to Be Swift." (RB)
