Nearly unnoticable in an article about Reuters outsourcing jobs is this nugget that sheds some insight into what Reuters considers "reporting".

[Global managing editor David] Schlesinger also said he was offended by the guild's suggestion - which the union has denied - that American journalists are superior to their foreign counterparts. The wire service remains committed to "on-the-ground reporting, but some stories can be done very well by telephone or by reading something on the Internet," he said from India.

(Emphasis mine.) Since when does "reporting" consist of reading something on the internet? Sounds more like blogging to me.

Update:
Yay, my second link from Best of the Web. Is James Taranto is less selective than Glenn Reynolds, or does he just have better taste?
