BREAKING NEWS! . . . CNN re-writes journalism rules

CNN reported that German police are looking for those involved in an attack on a market which killed 12 people.

The above shows the language was not sub-edited.

Sub-editing also means cutting down the number of words in a sentence, checking the grammar, proof reading etc.

Note: CNN said a market killed 12 people.

Note: CNN said German police are looking for those involved in an attack on the market.

Again, according to CNN:

The market killed the 12 people.

Some people attacked the market (obviously for killing the 12 people).

German police are looking for the people who attacked the market.

A reporter would have written the story, the news editor would have checked it, the sub-editor went through it and finally the news caster read it.

Sub-editors are not supposed to rewrite stories.
