Internships: Praise Be!

'A lot is made about the use of unpaid interns in the media. Then there is the whole 'Huffington Post' model of expecting people to want to write for free, but there are few unpaid jobs in the media world whose non-cash rewards are justified quite like these editorial posts from Christian organisation WEC [Worldwide Evangelisation For Christ].
Each ad includes the line:

"This position is non-salaried as all WEC personnel look to God to provide their personal needs."

Via The Media Blog.

Fagburn hears a well-known British gay title is rumoured to be switching to this "Written entirely by unpaid interns" model very soon.
That's if cut-and-pasting press releases and random rubbbish from Google News counts as "writing".
