I don't know if this a joke or not, but it is Hilarious...
Bangalore or bust? The Outsourcing of Journalists SignOnSanDiego.com (2/29)

"In October, researchers at the University of California Berkeley predicted that as many as 14 million white-collar U.S. jobs could be outsourced to foreign countries in the next 10 years. Among the outsourcing leaders: 3Com, Aetna, AT&T, Citigroup, Earthlink, Gateway, Sprint, Verizon and Yahoo.

And earlier this month, the Reuters financial news agency announced plans to hire a reporting team to work alongside its existing data-entry operation in India. Initially, the Indian journalists will report on 3,000 small and medium-sized companies in the United States.

David Schlesinger, Reuters' global managing editor, told The Independent, "We will still have journalists elsewhere doing the value-added stuff. This will free up journalists in the West for value-added, such as interviewing."

Western journalists rejoice: You will soon be considered, "value added."

HILARIOUS! Always more room in the unemployment line! See you there!
