N – Edited news is good news

Another boost for editors: readers prefer news articles that have been profesionally edited. The research, sponsored by the American Copy Editors Society (ACES), also found that readers were more concerned about professionalism and grammar than style or structure. Fred Vultee of Wayne State University, USA, presented the findings at the ACES annual conference and indicated that his future work will address the question of whether readers would stop visiting a website because of poor editing.
