P.I. Copy Editor Watch

In today’s Seattle Post-Intelligencer, University of Washington president Mark Emmert wrote a guest column advocating changes in I-200:

Removing the restrictions of I-200 would give us an additional tool: the ability, once more, to consider race and ethnicity in shaping our undergraduate, graduate and professional student bodies. [p-i]

Instead of the correct title (“Changing Initiative 200 is a worthy cause”), the print edition of the paper uses the headline “Everyone Benefits from I-200.” Get your collector editions while they’re hot and sell them on eBay next week!

Maybe they’re really hurting under the J.O.A. and can’t afford enough headline editors? Or perhaps the P-I should’ve stuck to being the afternoon paper. We’re sympathetic — early morning deadlines are tough on all of us.

    Pssssttt…the PI was never an afternoon paper. It was the Times that changed from afternoon delivery to morning.

    Morning headlines are rough though!
