Serious Sub-editor

Gardai investigating discovery of body in Dublin

I have often given out about sub-editors who invent sound byte headlines, or whose headlines sometimes say the opposite of what is in the body of the report.

However, here is a sub-editor to admire. S/he successfully resisted the temptation of the cheap soundbyte headline.

The anniversary of this piece is approaching. All you sub-editors out there, please pay homage to this serious practitioner of your trade.

Standards, please.
