Fundamental Editing Process

After reading Chapter Three in The Art of Editing in the Age of Convergence, I feel quite confident regarding the editing changes I called for when reading the Michael Brown and Hillary Clinton articles.

Part of chapter three elaborated on tightening stories and rearranging paragraphs to allow better flow from the article, and I think this tactic would’ve made the Brown profile easier for readers to fully comprehend. Eligton jumped among different subjects quite carelessly instead of grouping common ideas and themes together.

Overall, one are in which my editing could have been better was my collection of background information on each subject. This was more prevalent in the Clinton article due to the official names and terminology used in the piece. I was ignorant too much of the announcement process and fact checking involved regarding the reporter’s procedures of information gathering.
