Media Guardian’s Sneer at City AM Backfires

roy-g

“Are you rich enough to bid for a City AM internship?” sneers Roy Greenslade at Media Guardian this morning, reporting that the business freesheet is auctioning off work experience to the highest bidder. “Open to all who have plenty of capital,” sniffs the Guardian. Bravely. 

It’s an odd thing to get upset about since City AM’s initiative is for charity. The money raised is being given to Maggie’s cancer centres, which offer support to cancer victims. Even odder that Greenslade would attack newspapers charging for work experience, given just last year the Guardian charged £600 for a summer work experience placement. The difference? City AM are giving the money to charity, the Guardian kept the cash for themselves…

You can bid for the City AM work experience here. Money goes to Maggie’s.
