Does someone have a history of the office of public editor in newspapers? Is NYT the first to appoint one? Kummini 18:16, 20 June 2006 (UTC)

Also, what is the relationship of a public editor to the powers that be at a newspaper? Is he independent of them? Can he feel free to criticize them? Does he have any sway or say over the editorial policy of the paper, or can he only criticize such policy in his column? Do cable news channels have public editors, or just newspapers? --Hyphen5 16:24, 8 October 2006 (UTC)

only newspapers ?[edit]

. . .

Is the role of public editor confined to only newspapers ?

Not sure myself, but magazines spring to mind. Suggestion : add context that mentions similar positions in other media, such as ombudsmen*. NOTE

  • on advice from a female ombudsman, I am assured the nomenclature is gender neutral.
