A newspaper not far from where i live, in Connecticut outsourced some content to Indian journalists and what was still confined to speculation and even sarcasm has turned a reality.
Yes – articles written for a local community were outsourced. Now what is unimaginable about the entire experiment was a paradigm shift, a crumbling of the last frontier. Now if a journalist even in Connecticut has to pick the phone to interview a subject then it may as well be done out of India. The only radical aspect of this experiment was that they outsourced reporting. Reuters, Bloomberg and leading research houses have already leveraged the huge talent pool India has to offer for the back office research and writing purposes.
All I can say as an industry buff is More power to such adventurists.
