The Value of Editors

This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone, though obviously it is to some who think editors are unnecessary.

A study finds higher engagement of readers on edited pages.  A lot higher. There are a number of political and commentary pages that I read each day that would so clearly benefit from five minutes of copy editing. These are columns by smart, well-informed journalists who clearly had no review before publishing but whose work would benefit enormously from just a few tweaks.
