Dawn Eden update
Dawn Eden (previously covered here and here) is back in the newspaper copy-editing business.
Former New York Post copy editor and right-wing blogger Dawn Eden has returned to the tabloid business, joining the New York Daily News April 11. Her new position, much like her last one, has her being a copy editor, editor-editor and headline writer.What the hell is an editor-editor? I don't know. But the New York Observer piece (which you can find here today, but I bet it will be gone tomorrow) gives us some insight on what Eden has been up to since being fired from the New York Post:
Soon after Ms. Eden’s dismissal from the Post, National Review Online’s editor Kathryn Jean Lopez gave her a month-long gig editing such writers as John Derbyshire and Victor Davis Hanson on the conservative magazine’s Web site. Ms. Lopez also published an op-ed Ms. Eden wrote making fun of playwright Eve Ensler’s orchestrated readings of The Vagina Monologues on college campuses around the world (“V-Day”).So, with her public firing, I'd guess the Daily News was pretty upfront about what she can and can't do on the clock. Eden makes a small mention on her blog: "With my new job, this must needs be a nighttime blog—posting will resume in the wee small hours."
Among the headlines Ms. Eden wrote for nationalreview.com were “Girls Just Want to Have Pundits” (for an article on female op-ed writers) and “One ‘Ring’ Leads to Another” (for a review of the movie The Ring 2). Another recent piece by Ms. Eden, attacking Planned Parenthood’s “Teenwire” Web site, is in the April issue of Touchstone magazine.
