I was referring to this:
"Here's the biggest secret in all of traditional publishing: Most fiction books have never had a true content edit.
From Big Name's fifteenth bestseller, which the acquiring editor (read company president) is afraid to touch for fear of losing Big Name to another company, to Sweet Young Thing's first novel, which no one has the time (or the budget) to edit, most fiction books get little more than a line edit followed by a copyedit.
I would wager 95% of what you read has never had a content edit. Decades ago, writers started complaining that editors didn't "edit" any more, and by that, writers meant that they never got a content edit."
My experience was different. That's all.
