I read this report in my local paper this morning and about dropped my coffee. I never thought when I was studying journalism and working hard to understand the craft of writing and reporting in college that I would one day read that local journalism would be outsourced to India. It’s a new day for sure, not a good one for the Fourth Estate.
From the story: “Nobody in their right mind would trust the reporting of people who not only don’t know the institutions but aren’t even there to witness the events and nuances,” said Bryce Nelson, a University of Southern California journalism professor and Pasadena resident. “This is a truly sad picture of what American journalism could become.”
