Outsourcing hits journalists

Long considered one of the un-outsource-able jobs, local journalists are the next to have their jobs shipped overseas, to be replaced by a reasonably-priced Indian facsimile (from CNN):
Outsourcing first claimed manufacturing jobs, then hit services such as technical support, airline reservations and tax preparation. Now comes the next frontier: local journalism.

James Macpherson, editor and publisher of the two-year-old Web site pasadenanow.com, acknowledged it sounds strange to have journalists in India cover news in this wealthy city just outside Los Angeles.

But he said it can be done from afar now that weekly Pasadena City Council meetings can be watched over the Internet. And he said the idea makes business sense because of India's lower labor costs.
And then they came for the lawyers. (Here is the New York City Bar Association's Ethics Opinion on the issue; here is San Diego's; here is LA)
