    Probably happened because they don't have any experienced copy editors, or want to hire any ... :)

    Remember, "Being based in the community is not beneficial". Just what the guys who wrote the first amendment had in mind.

    I wonder if their "basic editing test" is cleaning up their job listing.

    I'm about to have a two week trial with them so I'll let you guys know how it goes but if the Tribune Company is dealing with them, they can't be that bad. I've been out there for awhile fellows and let me tell you, at this point it's better then working for free which I did at Bleacher Report.
