Here’s a link to add to your list of bookmarks or RSS reader: The New York Times’s After Deadline blog.
Here is some background:
After Deadline examines questions of grammar, usage and style encountered by writers and editors of The Times. It is adapted from a weekly newsroom critique overseen by Philip B. Corbett, the associate managing editor for standards, who is also in charge of The Times’s style manual.
It is a really useful read as it raises issues such as the problems of dashes, colons and semicolons, and the “unnatural journalistic mannerism of the ‘false title’”. Both posts include examples of misuse by New York Times journalists.
