When the front page of www.iht.com can't be filled by NYT/IHT correspondents, and has to rely on the wires, even for ahead of the news curve, off the news, stories, you know you have a problem.
And you need to re-tool how you allocate foreign correspondents?
Example from today (and again, I could quote examples for nearly any day of the year) this front page iht.com story, from the NYT?
No, from Reuters.......once more.
(It used to be, I think, that any Reuters story was cleary sourced as such in the online url link but not on this one. Is anyone trying to hide something here?)
