In practical terms, it should be the person who gets zinged if there's
a mistake and/or the person in the organization with the best spelling
and grammar skills.

If you're asking a process question, I'd say no, it should never be
the writer because he/she has looked at the copy too much to look at
it with fresh eyes.

But back in practical terms, if the writer is the best speller /
grammarian, he/she is likely to get stuck with the job.
