Internship Woes

I have a pretty good handle on this story since I've interviewed and failed to get an internship paid or otherwise. Jennifer 8. Lee, who went from Harvard to the NY Times is typical. Since minorities are so underrepresented in journalism she had a clear path regardless of her economic background, however as he story clearly illustrates, the economically disadvantaged from all ehtnic backgrounds have little chance of competing with the privileged who can work for free in the summer for government policy agencies or for that matter, newspapers. The Mailbu Times wanted me to work for $20 a week. I couldn't afford the gas to drive out there for three days.
