Good piece. Was Condé Nast correct in eliminating all internships? Will it end up being a good thing since they will now have to pay for all of their talent? I don’t know. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
On one hand, we’ve become so damn litigious that we’ll sue at the drop of a hat over things like interns working for slave wages, say. On the other hand, are we ever going to have another generation of journalists who learn by doing as opposed to figuring out which textbooks are wrong?
We shall see….
