Here's what happens when news orgs farm out edit

Moncton: Three suspects charged in shooting spree.

As everyone knows, it wasn't three suspects charged, it was one suspect facing three murder charges, among other things.

But this is what happens when news copy comes courtesy of unpaid interns at some word-mill, interns who may be less than adroit in their translation skills.

As everyone knows, big-time news orgs don't need to keep editors on staff because these out-sourcing editing houses, or "out-houses", can do it better for cheaper.
