Prosecutorial editing


The expression from Albany Times-Union editor Rex Smith in a Miller piece:
Nothing should have gotten into the pages of the newspaper that the reporter couldn't defend against questioning by an editor as aggressive as a tough D.A. Every source needed to be, in effect, cross-examined for bias.

As opposed to regular editing, presumably - under which any old bollocks sails majestically into the news-hole untouched by editorial hand.
