Journalist Lingo: Part Two

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
