Is It The Beginning Of The End? Outsourcing Local News To India

I don't know whether to laugh or cry.  While MIPTC counts many local journalists as friends, including those employed by the Orange County Register and the Los Angeles Times, it's not hard to imagine what their response will be to this NPR piece:  A local Pasadena news website plans to outsource its coverage of local city council meetings to India.

After all, Publisher James Macphearson of www.pasadenanow.com reasons, the city council meetings are available on the web, and we all know reporters in India charge a fraction of what we pay local reporters, and even news reporters in India have access to email.

Next thing you know, they'll be outsourcing tech support for computers and computer software to India.

Oh, right.  They already do that.
