The Perils of Outsourcing

Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post has a funny take on the notion of outsourced journalism, taking off on a real story — about Indian journalists covering town meetings in Pasadena — that we blogged about here.

You may recall that Weingarten is the same journalist who wrote the fantastic piece about world-class violinist Joshua Bell‘s undercover concert in a D.C. subway station.

Approximately one million years ago, I interviewed at the Post for a job that I didn’t get. By far the best part of the experience was briefly meeting Weingarten, who was a great writer even then.
