Guardian Unveil Pay to Play Model

Given that their “bring a reader to work day” AKA “The Open Weekend” lost them £150,000, you would think the Guardian would take a time out from daft money-wasting ideas, but no. Having exhausted the free interns/slave labour market, GMG are moving to a new model where they will charge young wannabe hacks £9,000 to work there:

“The newspaper group, which made losses before tax of £33m last year, is understood to be set to launch a course offering training in digital journalism at a cost of £9,000 a head from September 2012.”

Guido is sure this will be just as successful as their mooted Guardian Hotel…
