Bleacher Report Quality Editor
---
Quality editors provide the final edit on all content bound for B/R’s highest-visibility channels. Their edits are more intensive than copy edits, at times requiring wholesale changes and collaboration across teams to ensure each article delivers on the aforementioned quality standards.

By elevating standards on B/R’s highest-traffic locales, the quality editing team is striving to raise the bar on content site-wide, with the hope that their enhanced scrutiny on a fraction of articles is eventually the norm.

    Always appreciate your feedback, Ben, and glad it largely looked good for a sensitive subject. One reason it was a bit longer is because my original draft had 43% quotes since Boone and Kaepernick had plenty to say (and I wasn't going to insert opinion in a sensitive piece). Sometimes it feels forced, but I've been told in the past by copy editors that quotes can't make up more than 30ish%, hence the additional stuff. Again, thank you for the feedback, it's always very helpful and detailed. Hope all is well.

    Ben, terrific feedback you gave me on the Andy Murray Wimbledon article. There were several valuable lessons with the specific examples you gave. You truly are a master with an excellent eye for quality editing. I appreciate your time and efforts. It matters.

    Thanks for the feedback, Ben. Always appreciate the breakdowns. I figured since I clarified Brady was the unanimous MVP a few sentences later it was fine, but see what you're saying. No other real questions, thanks again.

    Thanks for the edits, Ben. Only reason I cited the basic stat sack is because I thought sacks were sometimes subjective and different on different websites (like tackles often are). Figured better safe than sorry to throw a citation in there. And will look to cite internally too, just did a mock draft google search to quickly get something in there. Always appreciated.

    Thanks for the edits on the Sean Miller piece, Ben. I've been told multiple times that full length pictures don't look great in the text of breaking news pieces, which is why I didn't have a picture in there. I did include the tweet that showed video of the students rushing the court, since that was all that I could find at the time it was breaking news.
