Sub-Editors v Roy Greenslade

MORE from Roy Greenslade on his claim that newspapers no longer need sub-editors can be had in today's Media Guardian by clicking here.

It's not his most convincing piece, it has to be said, trying to hold his ground with a little bit of back-tracking to appease the masses.


Put simply he is making the point that it is almost inevitable that many subs will be put out to grass as part of the changing face of newspapers.

That point is hard to dispute.

What it does mean is more responsibility and more defined roles for those who survive the processes being introduced.

According to the poll that has been running here for the past few days, more than 90% say that sub-editors remain vital with less than 10% believing there could be room for change.

None, it should be noted, so far think subs are an irrelevance.
