The rumour mills are abuzz with the news that one of India's largest media houses is looking at acquiring a chain of US publications. The Boss is currently in the US finalising the deal and is accompanied by a host of i-Bankers. We have had imports come to India and not exactly being successful running newspapers, I wonder if we will soon start exporting journalists - not the types who run away to do Fellowships - but 'on-site' guys - you know the thing that the IT companies call 'onshoring' telling the Yanks on how to run a newspaper. Dangerous turf the US - Murdoch country!
