Copy editing job outsourced to India

That was a line to send shivers down the back of anyone in the news business these days. Job outsourced to India. It’s in the Sunday Miami Herald, in which Brayden Simms has the byline on an article in the business section about who’s getting the ax as the paper cuts 250 jobs. Himself, for one.

And in the opinion section, the Herald’s ombudsman, Edward Schumacher-Matos, has much more detail on which jobs are going away. This is required reading for us Herald readers. The ombudsman also invites people to say what they want the paper to do in the future. As a former reporter, I suggest let the reporters rule.
