Yesterday, a curious FrontBurnervian wondered why the editorial page seemed to ignore the Metro section’s story about the muffin suspects. An ink-stained FrontBurnervian gives us this explanation:
A little Newspaper Printing 101 for your readers, especially the guy who wrote in: The confusion comes from the differences in deadlines for pages in the paper. Editorial’s pages are typeset about six hours before page 2A, which had the brief story about the muffin suspect. At that time, it’s not possible to go back and fix the other page. Of course, those of us who have gone to the dark side of online journalism can simply click on the story and make the change.
