Critics lambasted the stories after it was discovered they were written by writers in the Philippines for 35 cents per piece — people that had never even heard of the Chicago suburbs they were writing about.

Apparently, quality tanked.
Well, hello, Dolly. What would YOU churn out for 35 cents an article? War and Peace? No, we wouldn’t either.
Remember Uncommon Descent. We are part of the real media today. The new media. No p=pretense at a fake objectivity no one really has.
Also no slave labour. No Darwinism, no trolls. Just normal free people of all types.
