Coming Soon To A Newspaper Near You?

You wouldn't think that you could cover local news in say, Pasadena, Calif., from India, but evidently you can ... or at least PasadenaNow.com thinks so. Unfortunately, I think we will see more moves like this very soon. Do you think someone in Bangalore can cover news in Fort Worth better than someone here can? I don't think so, and I hope no one else in Fort Worth does either.

Needless to say, I'm dubious. Nobody watching a city council meeting over the 'net then phoning up an interviewee will be able to provide the local flavor and context of somebody who, you know, actually lives there.

No kidding. Beside, it's like they say in real estate, location is EVERYTHING!
