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.
You shouldn’t need a world map to find out where your local news is being produced.
For those of you who don’t know, the trap is our rehearsal space. Its a small room that 7 of us can barely fit in, and with everyone’s equipment (and random shit) its really fucking crowded.
Lane, JP, and I threw out all the trash that was laying around…but theres still random records, and an extra drum set, and clothing…. I don’t even know.
Then we drove to the Tribune Tower to do an interview for The Mash which is the teen version of the Chicago Tribune (I think…) Their offices are in the basement of the Tribune Tower and it looks awesome. They have glass flooring/paneling, and out their window is a view of downtown Chicago…wouldn’t mind working there if I had to have a desk job.
