"Copy editors usually ask a lot of questions. But this past weekend, at the annual American Copy Editors Society convention, those questions weren't just about sloppy copy. They were about how copy editors fit into a newsroom where breaking stories are posted online first.

Those questions come at a time when copy editors are stretched thin. When their work is being outsourced to India, China and the Philippines. And when they're largely an afterthought in the process of posting content online."
