US daily newspaper the Miami Herald has dropped plans to outsource part of its production operations to India.
“We’ve decided this would not be an appropriate use of this service so it won’t be tested, nor will other newsroom and editing design like it,” a memo from Anders Gyllenhaal, Miami Herald executive editor, is reported as saying in a report on MiamiHerald.com.
“The more we looked at the prospects of editing and layout from outside the newsroom, the more it was clear these skills involving news judgment and experience are not likely to work well from afar.”
According to the article, other outsourcing projects at the paper, including the production of some advertising sections and monitoring of website comments, will continue.
