The National Journalism Center is finishing up the second
week of it’s summer program and is in high gear! After a few days of
orientation in the nation’s capital, interns have settled into their placements,
working for top newspaper, radio, television, magazine and online media
organizations. During their time with NJC, interns have discussed topics
pertaining to legislation, economics, and media mediums. For their first
seminar, interns read The Law by Frederick Bastiat, gaining insight into
the realm of philosophy, law and justice in legislation and the public arena.
In just two weeks, numerous interns have captured bylines at
their media outlets. Subjects ranged from opinions and debates on off-shore
drilling, the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” legislation, foreign policy, religion,
political party movements, and recent events like the BP oil spill and Elena
Kagan’s Supreme Court nomination. Here are a sampling of recent articles!
