Bummer. One of America's pre-eminent news organizations, the Associated Press, is canceling its paid-internship program. (Yes, it is slated to return.)
Of course, other news organizations offer these plum, paid opportunities, and serious students should track those down and go for them. But in my opinion the AP program was different because of the name brand.
No, I'm not suggesting all other news agencies are inferior, but the AP connects to almost every other news organization in this country.
