Martin Column on Foreign News Bureaus

In a Columbia Journalism Review column, Justin Martin, a UMaine College of Liberal Arts and Sciences-Honors College preceptor of journalism, writes that news organizations often overstate the size of their foreign bureaus. Martin believes the use of the word bureau to describe a single correspondent in a particular city is meant to trick audiences into believing the news organization funds a sprawling newsroom in that location.
