Tweets from a frustrated editor

— Tweets from senior editor Doree Shafrir, who is headed to BuzzFeed to edit its culture coverage.

Speaking of BuzzFeed: It’s profiled today by American Journalism Review’s Carl Straumsheim. Editor-in-chief Ben Smith tells him: “I think that we are more like the New York Times than we are like Reddit. We’re a news organization, basically. Every day, we ask ourselves, ‘How are we going to outdo what we did yesterday?'”

  1. Sorry, but being on time is the most important, because if you blow deadline, all the rest is irrelevant. (Assuming we’re talking about print – online is a bit different, but only a bit.)

    Of course, making deadline is not enough by itself – it is necessary but not sufficient, as the wonks say.
