Newspaper editorial work all outsourced to India

I had no idea this was going on. Very interesting. The big newspapers have outsourced most of their editorial positions to people making a couple bucks a day in Bangalore:

As of 2007 they have 1000 reporters working in the Bangalore office doing the whole range of journalistic activities:

Seems they have an assembly line. Local cub reporters gather notes on the scene, these notes are then forwarded to Bangalore where they actually write the article, with the direction specified by their corporate masters. Do as you are told, do not question the agenda. Senior editors and reporters in the US are now completely dead as an occupation.

Oh REUTERS has outsourced to India.

Well, that would explain why the whole Propaganda machine in the run-up to the war worked so well.
