Due to the popularity of my post, titled “Journalist Lingo,” I have decided to make another. Once again, I will investigate and define those tricky terms journalists hold near and dear to their hearts.
Budget: a list of pending articles for the next paper
Above the Fold: refers to a story printed on the front page, above the fold/crease of the newspaper
Evergreen: articles that can be printed at any time, without regards to timeliness
Morgue: a storeroom or closet holding old newspapers
Double Truck layout: a design spread that covers two facing pages
Deadlines: due dates for stories, edits and designs for the publication
