According to a major story by This American Life, news companies have outsourced local news production to Journatic, a company that hires underpaid workers in the Philippines, and uses fake bylines to create local news for communities in the United States.

Dear Sam Zell and the Tribune Company:
Don’t sell out local journalism. Stop outsourcing local news and put out-of-work local journalists back on local beats.

Stories made for 30 to 35 cents on the dollar: Read up about this on Romenesko and listen to the clip here. If 100 percent true, this basically makes up for the Mike Daisey thing.

FJP: We flagged this earlier today for review but the podcast isn’t available until tomorrow night. Jim Romenesko though has a partial transcript here.
