I've outsourced my latest outsourcing post
Practicing what I preach, instead of posting my latest mini-essay on offshore outsourcing here at danieldrezner.com, I've outsourced it to... GlennReynolds.com. Regular readers will recognize some of the material, but there's a lot of new stuff as well!
Go check it out.posted by Dan on 06.07.04 at 11:22 AM
“Naturally, the media coverage of this report led with the estimated number of job losses -- burying the gains in the 25th paragraph.”
The major media usually slants its coverage to assist the liberal Democrats. These scoundrels know that most people read the headlines and maybe the first or second paragraphs. They cannot be trusted. That is why it behooves one to search out information on the Internet. Blogs like those of Daniel Drezner and Arnold Kling are invaluable in keeping us out of harm’s way. The New York Times, Washington Post, CBS, etc. are at best secondary news sources---and that’s being awfully kind.posted by: David Thomson on 06.07.04 at 11:22 AM [permalink]
Well, the Detroit News (and Free Press, combined for the weekend edition) had a screaming headline about job loss to outsourcing (23,000 or so as I remember), and THE LEAD DAMN PARAGRAPH went on to exlain that in a few short years Michigan will be short tens of thousands of workers every year unless we can encourage folks to move here (I think they even used the term "unfilled jobs"). Talk about cognitive dissonance. One has to assume the headline writer didn't even glance at the story.
Nope, no bias here.posted by: JorgXMcKie on 06.07.04 at 11:22 AM [permalink]
Dan, great post, great links. I support outsourcing and free trade 100%. But keep in mind that much of rhetoric about 'insourcing' is pure myth. Here's a link from the Economic Policy Institute.posted by: Nate on 06.07.04 at 11:22 AM [permalink]
