Another example of why outsourcing is a bad idea

Customer service representatives in Manila apparently don't speak English well enough to handle pissed off Chicago Sun-Times subscribers who aren't getting the paper delivered — and only part of it when it is.

In August Tribune took over home-delivery of the Sun-Times.

But for S-T subscribers, the deal's not working out so well. (end of post)
