'After Deadline'

The NY Times runs a weekly blog, 'After Deadline', adapted from its newsroom editing sessions. Essentially, it reveals some wholly enlightening elements of grammatical and structural errors, taken from the paper, in everyday American writing.

Quote:
After Deadline examines questions of grammar, usage and style encountered by writers and editors of The [New York] Times.

It is adapted from a weekly newsroom critique overseen by Philip B. Corbett, the deputy news editor who is also in charge of The Timesís style manual. The goal is not to chastise, but to point out recurring problems and suggest solutions.

Since many writers wrestle with similar troubles, we think these observations might interest general readers, too.
