Quote, unquote: Value apparently not worth
paying interns for

"These fact-checking interns, hired for a six-month stint, earn very little glory and no pay, but are vital to the work of the magazine."
-- Rachel Giese, senior editor of The Walrus, writing on the magazine's blog about the value of the magazine's interns, describing them "for my money, the four most important people on The Walrus editorial team." She was reflecting on the recent news about the US public radio program This American Life, which was hoodwinked by actor-writer Mike Daisey into broadcasting a story they were later forced to retract about Apple's manufacturing processes in China.
