Default Lede in A Newspaper Article

I just finished a non-fiction book where the author, a Wall Street Journal journalist, uses the word "lede" about the beginning paragraph of a newspaper article. From context and a Wikipedia definition, I would call that the "lead" instead. Perhaps forum members know about this term, which is new to me.
