Abstract: This thesis presents an ethnographic study of the copy desk at a mid-sized Florida newspaper and a copy editing seminar at the Poynter Institute, a school for working journalists. Copy editors occupy an invisible position between other journalists and the reading public. Their names do not appear in print, yet they exercise far more power over content than do reporters as the credited authors. Copy editors' decisions, made under pressure, preface what becomes labeled as the "authoritative voice" of the newspaper. I will suggest that copy editors collaboratively reinterpret institutional ideals of unmarked objectivity.
