Re: “UC Berkeley Threatens Bay Area Journalism

In defense of those 120 unpaid, inexperienced student journalists, I would like to ask: Where else can these recent grads go to get the journalistic experience they need in order to (one day) become paid, experienced professional journalists? Granted, I'll admit up front that I am biased in this opinion because I happen to be a recent journalism grad that is working for a nonprofit journalism organization in Seattle, but for many like me, working in this type of organization is the only way we have of gaining any sort of reporting experience. Forget paying jobs with established media; even nonpaying internships with established publications are very hard to obtain. Therefore, rather than letting our training go to waste, we seek out (often times) the only reporting/writing opportunities available to us: blogging or "slave labor."
