The Tallahassee Democrat’s editing “standards”

The Miami Herald didn’t have the same “standards” as the Democrat when we used quotes from an un-named man at whose house Ken Pruitt Jr. died, according to the Democrat’s web editor who explained in a 2:54 p.m. posting that it was using its own version because ours made him "uncomfortable.

He also noted that the Democrat would constantly update its own version.

So do we. Two minutes before the Democrat editor posted his explanation, the Miami Herald named the man: Sam Coskey. Police confirmed it, after we matched the name with the license plate of the Town Car parked out front.

The Democrat still hasn’t named him, nor apparently spoken with him. It is now 4:57 p.m.
