“In The Editor Regrets, Mr. Edwards dispels some of the mystique which builds up around the editorial desk. He gives his readers an intimate look at the busy, down-to-earth life of the editor at large, metropolitan, daily newspaper. What, exactly, does a newspaper editor do? Does he really ‘run’ the paper? Does anyone ‘run’ the editor? Is his the Final word?
All these questions are answered as you watch, unseen and unheard, the goings on at the hub of a busy newspaper office and witness the end product being shaped and produced under inexorable pressures of time and space. Mr Edwards invites you to join him in the role of handling material that is unceasingly arriving and departing and demanding constant, instantaneous decision.”
