According to Nick Farrell at The Inquirer:
The (International Herald Tribune) article cites a WAN global survey of about 350 newspaper bosses in Europe, Asia and the United States. They expected outsourcing to increase, although few were willing to farm out all of their editorial functions.
Part of the reason is that advertising revenues for print media is dropping and people are failing to buy hard copies of their news.
The article cites the outsourcing of the business pages of the UK's Daily Express to India as an example of what could happen in the US.
The article mentions that much of the work being taken by India is the 'crap hack' work.
In which case, won't we see low level 'crap PR work' being outsourced to India too?
