+ - The Next Frontier in Outsourcing

Submitted by GuyMannDude
GuyMannDude (574364) writes "Outsourcing first claimed manufacturing jobs, then hit services such as technical support, airline reservations and tax preparation. Now comes the next frontier: local journalism. A news site has posted a job listing that reads "We seek a newspaper journalist based in India to report on the city government and political scene of Pasadena, California, USA." The editor and publisher of the two-year-old Web site acknowledges that the advertisement — which appears in the Indian version of craiglist — is unusual but believes it "could be a significant way to increase the quality of journalism on the local level without the expense that is a major problem for local publications." As one might expect, the plan has plenty of detractors, including journalism professors."

If you had better tools, you could more effectively demonstrate your total incompetence.
